What to do in this awful weather - it is so tempting to stay in bed, to not bother going into town, to not attempt anything. But the thing is - I love people - I love the chat and the interchange of ideas. And also I really did fancy some Sea Bass for my lunch and we have the very best Fish Stall on our market every Friday with every kind of fish you can imagine - fresh and mostly from Whitby and other areas on that it of coast.
So I got up, showered, got dressed and went into town - it was still dry although not looking too promising. Sea bass bought (and would you believe the two men who man the stall are not fish eaters ) and bananas and oranges and then it was over to our Friday cafe to meet up with friends for coffee. It was all good as it usually is.
By the time H and I walked back to my car in the Car Park it was sleeting and the wind was rising. That didn't stop the rooks going at their nest building in full caw! Once home I almost made myself a sandwich before remembering I had fresh sea bass in my shopper! Sea bass and green beans - delicious and all ready in five minutes - nice crispy skin, gently cooked on the flesh side - cooked in a mixture of a little bit of rape seed oil and a noggin of butter.
This afternoon S and T came round for the afternoon and we sat and chatted, had a cup of tea and a piece of fruit cake and passed what was a disgustingly horrible afternoon weather-wise in a very pleasant way. Considering the situation at the moment and the awful weather I couldn't have had a nicer day. Take care
