Sounds like a perfect day. Nice start too,with good fbg - the fish influence again.
Thanks for the link. We have a list of the foods in the kitchen but the menu ideas are very useful - we have no real structure at the moment, just last minute decisions and I don’t like that so it will be very useful.
Have fun choosing carpets, I’m impressed you are going along - the move is certainly becoming reality for you now. Hope it goes smoothly.
Happy to be of any small help knowing first hand how horrible the problems can be. Left all alone goodness knows what horror show Julie would select - maybe even patterns Also meeting No 1 son and grandson who want to see the new house. Grandson needs to know where the Troll will be on our walks when we move or else we can't move. Key factor in choosing which house to buy but all sorted. Troll knows we are moving and happy he will still be fed sweets under his new bridge. Thetford chase is ideal for Trolls and other creatures that big brother/cousin can explain to the gals.
I also absolutely love the area around the British Museum. I treat myself to a luxury stay in a lovely boutique hotel next to museum and always arrive the day before my course so I can visit all the current exhibitions. So my visits to London are part work and part pleasure.
Despite the ravages of the London traffic & the high volume of pedestrians Bloomsbury has an air of gentility about it.. I drive through there often en route to work
Sounds like it would be a good holiday read - I do like books that are a 'page turner'.
You are right - it does have an air of gentility. I stay at The Montague on the Gardens and my daughter says that it makes her feel that she is in a Miss Marple movie.
From the moment you arrive at the entrance and they carry your case into the hotel you feel absolutely pampered and looked after.
I feel that one of the perks of still running my little business well after retirement age is that I can be absolutely extravagent occasionally.
Eating Chinese food, and Indian is a minefield. It varies so much between different places - a safe meal in one will send bg sky high in another. Hope you enjoyed it though. I haven’t dared try since starting this woe.
So glad there is room for the Troll in your new place, it would be sad to have to leave those stories and memories behind. I can remember you posting ages ago about the troll under the bridge.
Yes I agree about the area and Miss Marple - I think it was At Bertram’s Hotel which always reminds me of it. I’m going to look up the Montague
I so hate ironing those shirts - unbuttoning those tiny buttons takes ages, so fiddly.
Gruss Gott aus Bayern!
6.8 again , not strickt enough , still packing my stuff , had beans-beef and potatoes and tomatsauce with cream for late dinner last Night
Have a wonderful Day all of you. We are enjoying the last Day in my daughters childhood home
Menu just became whole lot harder. Chickens had, 1 by 1, begun roosting in trees and refused to go in to secure coop. 1 left so sourcing vaguely similar eggs an issue now. Reports say Borisa the hen said no more vassalge and a fox called Donald was eagerly waiting to devour them. It couldn't be, could it?
Have a good weekend
The good run continues. Long may it last
It’s been a good week for me and hope it carry’s on
How are you keeping good man?
Really pleased for you having a good week at last. If bg is the only measure I am doing well thanks.
5.3 - low enough to comfortably get away with a full Lidl protein roll toasted for breakfast. If only I had one left! Oh wait a minute, I cleared out my freezer yesterday and only went and found one hiding behind the ice!!! Imagine my excitement. Brought 15 back from Dublin earlier in the year (they don't sell in UK anymore sadly ).
I jumped out of bed (very unusual for me) and eagerly showered. 'I will put the kettle on' I said to hubby. 'It won't suit you' was his reply. If I had a £1 for every time I've heard that! Anyway I sprinted downstairs (i don't do running!) WHERE WAS THE ROLL I HAD LEFT ON THE WORKTOP DEFROSTING! I noticed a plate and a soup bowl. My heart sank. My son who was on a late night shift had come in, spotted it and the rest is history, including my Lidl roll. Oh well worse things happen. omelette it is then.
I did try to pick out the veg and duck from the sauce but unless I wiped it off with a napkin that wasn’t very successful . Even scraping off the sauce, it still tasted too sweet for my adapted palate now.
We went there because some of OH’s nieces/their OHs/daughters and SIL go there on a Friday lunchtime.
