Perhaps by someone who knits sweaters more quickly than I do!

I love the name of the train at about 3.40 and the very Shadowsesque music.

You could go to Nice for a weekend and take a trip to Grasse where the parfumiers at Galimard will help you to build your own! http://theyarnyard.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/10/my-poor-nose.html

It took me much much longer than I thought it would. The ladders were very tricky, and boy was that alpaca slippery!

I love the page numbers and the index. Sad person that I am, I always used to number my notebooks myself.

They are on the "big" camera. I'm going to set up private bits of flickr too so you can see the family-only photos, it's the easiest way of sharing digital pics without printing them. ... Sallysoodles is my Mum, BTW!

I do like typepad and I can "drive" it now but I don't like the way you are locked in and it's hard to export... I didn't know these things when we spoke about it!

The models are, but the clothes in the shop weren't, and refreshingly, the sales assistants were definitely curvy AND wearing the clothes sold in the shop.

Excellent! I look forward to reading it.

I meant that it was in the ball park, if you know what I mean. Hoping to put an order in for it any day now but it will be a week or two before it's here I think. Well worth waiting for though!

I think that's why I'm finding it so fast, I almost never knit with DK but I have a feeling that's about to change.

Are those Options? I am terrified mine will come unscrewed on a sock.

I wasn't there on Sunday and there were twelve wreaths so maybe that's when everyone went. It's not in the middle of the village, it's sort of between the two places so it's not on the way to anywhere... and with the level crossing only a hundred metres away it's not easy to stop in a car. But yes, sad.

Two minutes to show someone you care about them could be a mantra really, couldn't it? Thank you.

I am fortunate, it isn't bad at all. Close stuff is definitely a problem now, and I the optician said that the blurry vision I had for half an hour a couple of weeks ago which I had put down as atypical migraine was an indicator that I need the prismatic correction or things could get much worse. My younger son has a +6.00 prescription so I am really very lucky. It makes me very grateful that I live in a part of the world and in a time where glasses are readily available. I can only imagine how difficult life must have been for some people 200 years ago... or even today in countries which are unable to provide in this way for their citizens.

I think Gavin bought it, but I can't remember why. Not something which would ever have found its way into my trolley. I think he might have been making shortbread, come to think of it.

Do you think a runny sauce, or a coulis or a chutney-ish sort of thing?
1 reply
Gosh. Gooseberry sauce with mackerel, I would never have thought of that, but I can see that the tartness of the gooseberries would complement the slightly oily mackerel. Maybe I should turn the bag of gooseberries into several small pots of sauce and store them for future dinners. Great idea, thank you.

Goodness. I took Fegrig to Edinburgh Airport this evening and no less than four cars were conked out (technical term) and stranded up to their sills in water on the roundabout which goes under the A8. The Police had closed it off and there were large sooking trucks doing what sooking trucks do. My garden resembles a bath sponge, but the water is at least staying in the garden and not coming into the house. The chickens are Not Impressed.
