Pretty normal Sunday here with our usual jaunt out for Sunday lunch. The rain kept off although it kept threatening - that's one of the troubles with our English weather; once it 'breaks' it takes it a long time to settle down again. Still I shouldn't complain. The rain came just right for the garden.
I have just watched 'Countryfile' with its hour-long tour of the Queen's Balmoral Estate. I stress that I am not a Royalist particularly but the estate was nothing short of exquisite and so beautifully and efficiently run that everywhere was perfect. I just can't begin to image how much it costs to maintain such a high degree of management.
It was followed by an hour long programme about Iraq which I had intended to watch but as I was having difficulty keeping awake (bad night) I decided to watch it another night on iplayer instead.
Nice lunch today - not the usual Sunday lunch as we all had salad (I had smoked haddock fish cake with chips and salad) - the other two had prawns with salad. They looked longingly at my chips and it transpired that they had had a bet to see if I offered them one. I had a lovely Le Creuset tureen of crisp, salty chips with fluffy centres - and I ate every single one myself - yes I am greedy but by golly they were good. So sorry girls!
