It was chilly here as well, I wore my coat this morning to go to the market


Tecwyn Report 19 Apr 2014 21:10

I don't know about make my eyes boggle, some blew my mind :-D

It was strangely quiet on the seafront for a holiday weekend, but it was a bit chilly to hang around for long.
Generally, the area is very busy. All the B&Bs are fully booked right through


LindainHerriotCountry Report 19 Apr 2014 21:02

Hello Tec, did the ladies make your eyes boggle?


Tecwyn Report 19 Apr 2014 20:45

Hello Everyone, :-)
Good Evening Linda,

It was another lovely day here, though there was a chilly breeze, and you needed a jacket, or heavy jumper.
My brother, and his OH visited. He did a little cementing job on the backyard for me. Then we went to look at the sea/beach at Fairthingy - land of exotic Indian cuisine, and exotic ladies :-D
My daughter and SIL are coming tomorrow. We are going to visit the Duchess.
Sadly, being diabetic, we can't take her an Easter egg.

Good evening :-)

Good morning Mersey,

I am sure that you can come back from Coventry now :-D

I will sort some photos out Carole. I am just about to start my weekly commute to play Mary Poppins, although this week we are only going by car on Tuesday and coming back on Thursday evening. I have lots of stuff to take down and leave. After that, I will be going on the train every Monday afternoon and coming back on Thursday evening. I will only need to take a shoulder bag, so it will be easier. This will go on until mid September when Esme gets her nursery place

It is cloudier here this morning, but we will still be off to the market square soon

Hello Elizabeth - it is always so nice to see you on here <3 My very best wishes to you and your family.

Hello Carole - I also like halving new potatoes and baking them with a little oil and garlic. Very quick and easy. Actually that's what we are having this evening with crumbed pork steaks......yummo :-D

The daffodils are lovely but I can't take credit for them - I bought them ready potted with buds. It didn't take long for the buds to open. I guess they are forced bulbs because they certainly aren't growing in gardens.

Happy Easter everyone - not too much chocolate ;-)


Carolee Report 19 Apr 2014 06:46

Hello everyone,

Happy Easter to you and your family Elizabeth :-)

Hello Berona, I hope you are keeping well <3

Linda, hello <3 How are your little girls? I haven't seen any recent photos for a while. hint hint :-)

Sue, your dafs were just beautiful :-) You always have much better weather up there, its more tropical really isn't it :-)

Tec, the chips are easy to make :-) You don't have to peel them either, but wash them first. Just cut the potatoes into wedges, throw them in a bowl and lightly cover them in olive oil. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper, so they don't stick to the tray and cook until they are nice and lightly browned, turning so they get evenly browned. They taste like the chips my mum used to cook in the deep fryer with oil, just a tad healthier.

Enjoy your day Sue,

Sleep well Linda,

I know - but I do still wear my tie in bed :-D


LindainHerriotCountry Report 18 Apr 2014 23:12

That is a silly but good idea Sue :-D

Well, I am off to bed now, so goodnight everyone


SueMaid Report 18 Apr 2014 23:09

Oh dear Tec :-( Perhaps you can glue some cups to their saucers. Then they won't wobble :-D


LindainHerriotCountry Report 18 Apr 2014 23:08

Oh dear Tec, things are indeed going downhill :-(


Tecwyn Report 18 Apr 2014 23:04

I s hould like you all to know, that at this very late stage in my life I have resorted to using mugs, instead of cup and saucer. :-0

Standards are falling alas :-(


SueMaid Report 18 Apr 2014 22:59

It's ok - OH has just delivered a cup :-D


LindainHerriotCountry Report 18 Apr 2014 22:58

Well you should get up earlier Sue, you have missed it


Tecwyn Report 18 Apr 2014 22:57

I could make coffee Sue, but I may be some time - then spill it on the way back :-D

Smile nicely at Linda, she makes nice coffee :-) as you know
