This morning was our monthly coffee morning in the Village Hall - and it is there that I (I live well out of the village) get the bulk of my information about the goings on.
It seems that the gentleman involved may well have slipped on the bathroom floor - or indeed got stuck in the bath and needed the Fire Brigade to get him out - two versions circulating freely. But whatever is the true version it does seem that he was home by evening and on the mend.
However, the ladder business was indeed true, because there were two accidents in the village on the same day. A window-fitter's ladder slipped and he fell and broke his leg badly. That is all the information I have on that story, but I do hope it is not too awful. I assume that he will certainly be out of action for some time.
Home again after the coffee, wood burner lit, and we are ready to sit by it. A friend at the coffee morning always bakes the most super turkey lasagnas and I like to get there early enough to buy two for our Saturday lunch - they are delicious. If you don't get there soon after the ten o'clock start they have all disappeared, so I was there well on time. One individual one each with lightly steamed broccoli. Delicious.
I mentioned that I did Cryptic Quizzes (note the correct spelling after Yorkshire Pudding told me I spelt it cyptic!!) and someone has said they would like it posting on line. This is difficult as the quiz sheet costs £1 for Nature Reserve Funds and it would be a way of getting the questions for nothing and so I can't really do that. Sorry though.
