My friends have gone back home to Windermere, across the very snowy tops of the Pennines. They had a good journey home and have rung to tell me so.
They have been my first staying guests since I moved into my bungalow and I have enjoyed their company very much. And I have cooked two meals - dinner on each evening - and apart from Boxing Day that is the only entertaining I have done. I really must get back into it because not cooking for people has made me lose my confidence in my ability to do so.
Fish pie served with peas and shredded savoy cabbage and green beans and pie and mushy peas followed by mixed fruit crumble and custard were the meals I cooked.
Back to normal tomorrow - blood test in the morning and ukuleles in the afternoon. As usual a busy week ahead and snow forecast too.
