No posting for a few days because having a two year old with her mum and dad and then her grand parents for some meals makes posting drop to the very bottom of the list. My great-grand-daughter is really interested in family relationships at the moment and kept asking repeatedly who we all were. I showed her this photograph of me at around her age - she was fascinated but perhaps not really able yet to
take it all in. The photograph is not all that unlike her - there is obviously a family likeness as there is in us all.
Such a pleasure to see them for a couple of days - I don't see them all that often - but how tiring. I am only just getting my legs back to working at all.
To anyone interested I made a delicious Butter bean salad (my grand daughter is vegan) and it suited us all. The recipe is a Guardian Feast recipe and easily available on the internet.
Other things to report - well first of all the weather. Tess and I have just been for our afternoon walk and it is really bitter cold. There was a sleet shower as we walked and I think we were both pleased to reach home again. Tess was immediately sick on the hall carpet - not surprising as she had been eating grass all the way on our walk. My plants have been holding a summit to discuss going back into the earth - they can't seem to agree (the usual outcome dare I say) and are staying put, but they do not look happy today in the cold North wind.
Warmer weather again by the week-end we are promised. Meantime, ignoring my gas bill (which came this morning), I shall turn the central heating up a tad, sit back and put my feet up.
