No mucking about in this weather

Monday morning is domestics day – the [hand] washing must be done, the shopping must be done and yet we have such glorious building weather, I’m itching to get down there.

But I can’t unless fed and by fed, I don’t mean some piddly little sandwich, I mean food-food.

We get so little of this amazing weather that in my mind, it’s actually criminal not to be out in it and making progress. But it can’t be done without food and water. These are my basics, below, plus some sort of meat:

The other thing is to stay shaded – I’m about to put up an awning down there, a shade cloth to build behind, easy enough to do and there’s plenty of daylight left to do all this.

See you a bit later.

    That piccy makes me miss meatpies,Cornish pasties and sausage rolls.
    It would be a lot harder for me to be a vegan in England.

    I too started on the Spring cleaning this morning.Oh for the days when The Absolutely Bestes Frau In The Entire Universe devoutly believed, in her Mennonite way, that “dirt hid the devil” and she saw it as her mission , nay her xian duty, to combat all forms of filth…temporal and spiritual…with all the laser focus psychosis brings with it.

    Still more unfortunately her psychosis means that I am not *allowed* to employ a char.

    But no matter, I shall now head off in the midday sun as befits my nationality, to tescos to get that which this mornings home delivery order hath not brought.

    We had a chicken and fennel pie for dinner. OK but not wonderful.

    We tried a “pukka pie” a couple of weeks ago. No plans to repeat.

    In the last year our repeatable pie-ish discoveries have been (i) Ginster’s Cornish Pasty, (ii) Higgidy’s Aubergine Pie. We buy them when they are money-off.
