Current work: Med, this evening (this morning is guitar lesson and this afternoon is visiting Dad)
Listening to: Kate Rusby
Reading: Joanna Maitland, His Reluctant Mistress (enjoyed this – very interesting setting – the Congress of Vienna, 1815)
I think our squirrel is a tad on the greedy side. This picture says to me, ‘Bad luck, birdies: this is mine, all mine!’ (And how he gets there is to climb up the pole, walk along that curved bit and then jump onto the fat ball holder.)
Gelati: last night, experimented with raspberry (which included sieving the puree to remove the pips). Made it to my taste so it’s a bit on the sharp side. Lovely, though. Planning to experiment with rhubarb later in the week, and possibly rhubarb and strawberry.
Oh, and this is what the raspberry yoghurt ice cream looked like in mid-make.
As for the baa – my friend and fellow med author Maggie Kingsley sent me the most wonderful link on ‘extreme shepherding’. This is guaranteed to make you smile (for the right reasons) and it’s so INCREDIBLY clever. I wonder how long it took them to plan this and then action it? It's just brilliant. The video clip is about 3 minutes long, but it’s worth every second. Watch and enjoy.
