attitude problem


Nope. Nothing. Empty brain syndrome. Doesn't happen very often. Have some avocado and prawn salad with pea shoots while I think. Even the salad looks a bit anaemic. Should have sprinkled some cayenne pepper on top. Needing some sofa time - it's been in short supply recently. The garden is looking pretty though. Roses, paeonies, geranium, lavender etcetera. Also many, many cushions. For everyone else to relax on, apparently.

I'll tell you about the poetry reading in Acton tomorrow. Or maybe we'll have a tour of the herb garden. Or a bento masterclass. Or my piece in the latest 'Oh Comely'...you definitely need to know about that. Tomorrow sounds as though it could be good. Come back tomorrow.

  1. I was going to say, "Do have a lovely and gentle evening"..but your evening is most likely gone. I am looking forward to the poetry reading post so much. Take care, with affection, Ellen.

    1. I am afraid you should be brisker and tell me to stop complaining and go to bed earlier so that I am not so tired.

    I'll be there, tomorrow.
    Even your anaemic salad looks delicious, on its shell on a pretty plate.
    Have a rest, Alice, on those cushions.

    1. Are you mad - the cushions are for decoration only which is why I am so cross with my family for relaxing on them.

    1. To be fair you have good coffee. And prosecco. And linguine. And sunshine. So I am not going to feel too sorry for you.

    1. 'Eat good food and relax' Please don't encourage me - you should be telling me to get off the sofa to go and do some ironing.
