I have had a very pleasant afternoon. Friend S came - she had travelled quite a long way in these Covid days because she lives the other side of Richmond. We had several hours of chat and covered a lot of ground - what we had done with our lives, where we had lived, how we are spending our retirement, what we have been reading, gardening, (we inspected the patio and agreed that it was coming along nicely). It wasn't warm enough to sit in the garden but my sitting room is just big enough to social distance and I always keep my bathroom supplied with hand sanitiser and a special personal hand towel for anyone who comes. Tea and choccy bikkies was the order of the day - a treat indeed for me. I don;t usually buy them because I can't resist them so best not to have any in the tin.
I have just booked my Tesco delivery spot for next week and after downloading an interesting curry recipe I have ordered all the ingredients so that I can try it out later next week. The recipe is from Marie Rayner's site and is for Chicken Samla Curry so watch this space to see how it turns out next week. This week's soup in my soupmaker tomorrow is another batch of tomato and basil because I enjoyed it so much. The only other thing on the calendar for tomorrow is to visit the Garden Centre and buy a prostrate conifer of some kind for my patio because I have now got an even number of plantings and we can't have that can we after we all agreed that the planting must be an odd number?
