I’ve been surfing already this morning. I was awake bright and early, sometime around six o’clock in fact. The waves were lapping gently on the shore as a cool morning breeze blew the clouds across the sky.
Rather than wake DG so early I spent my waking moments cursing my numb fingers and thinking about the summer to come. It was so bright, the daylight bursting through the cream coloured curtains covering my east facing window. Spring has definitely arrived!
Following these quiet moments of contemplation I read the April edition of Camping for a while. I found myself drooling over pictures of collapsible kitchen stands. After twenty years of cooking on my knees, my body has finally rebelled and is demanding a little in the way of home comforts.
Shortly after this DG rose; surprised to find me awake so early, he plodded off to the kitchen to make a brew. We like strong tea with a good flavour; and remarkably this brand has both. When I was skint, ie the other day, I’d popped into Lidl for some bits and pieces and thought I’d try their own brand tea. We were both astounded to discover that it makes a decent cup of tea!
Anyway he’s off ploughing for the day now. Making an early start means that he might actually get his crops sown before the harvest is due. The rain has caused a few problems this year; so it’s very much a case of finger’s crossed.
Left to my own devices, with everyone still asleep I checked in with the addiction centre, aka the computer. Checking my e-mails can be an involved process which often takes me surfing around the globe for hours on end; before completing my assigned task in outlook express. Since Kieran had already popped in and left a comment on yesterday’s post; the first place I went to was Co Kerry via Ice Cream
I’ve also been to the
I got to Hugh’s place via a site called Culinary Travels of a Kitchen Goddess. This site is a revelation and has succeeded in putting into practice a lot of my original ideals when starting this blog. I would suggest that anyone wishing to know about food and cooking check it out. She’s got some good tips and a great conversion page which I’ll be printing out to replace the mankey old white board I’ve got hanging off the kitchen wall.
Heaven only knows where else I've been this morning, but let me assure you that my time has not been squandered. I've signed up with 2bWed; a wedding directory to advertise my VINCA cards and wedding stationary and I've activated a subscription to a blog design site that I won the other day.
I've already done a lot of the work for today, and the best bit is that it has been not only interesting; but a pleasure too!This is the life. I'm working in my bathrobe, with a second mug of tea brewing in the kitchen; with my name on it.
ps. Both guy's came back looking for more last night, so we missed out on the Scampi; still I'm pleased to get some fish into them both for once!
