Mab lovely to have your GC together.
Itís been a very busy week . We went to Henty NSW field day stayed at Albury on the Monday night ,so five hour drive up there with DH asleep in the back seat me co pilot DS driving . Bonus not many places open for dinner we went the sports bar and watched the Queens funeral on the biggest screen I have ever seen best rib eye steak too.  Great field day sore feet , huge machinery and even got some work boots .

Fantastic weather up in Guildford over the weekend so took advantage of that and planted a new Daphne ... a bit late for that, but it will be good for next year, a climbing vine alongside the hen's run to give them shade (when it eventually gets big enough, that is), also put in some forget-me-nots and something else, the name of which I have forgotten ... but possibly nemesia and finally sprinkled some marigold seeds around the place.

Marina, a nice way to spend a pleasant weekend.

K Atie, a very busy week for you.  We often went to the Gippsland Field Days so I know how sore my feet would be after walking around all day.

I spent most of the day asleep in bed. One of our visitors has shared a rotten cold with me.

That's a shame, Cookie.

I see WA is the first state to celebrate the King's Birthday public holiday today, as opposed to the Queen's Birthday

Get well soon cookie, it sounds like mealtimes will be well covered by your family though.

My Thermi has arrived home from its service. Very happy with the quick turnaraound. DH was impressed that so little needed doing and that parts were readily available. So today I'm looking for a Rocky Road recipe (I've never made Rocky Road before as I don't like marshmallow). Going to make it as a test run for Christmas.
Also getting ready make Vegetarian sausage rolls and Canned tomato relish to go with them. I'll be taking them to a CWA cooking demo tomorrow evening. Ginger Fluff sponge...sounds fun.
Get well soon Cookie. RATS are no fun and not even that reliable it seems.
Cuilidh I laughed about your varying dietary needs post. You're amazing. I think I would have just opened a bottle of bubbles and called it a day... with takeaways.
Very interesting info about fermentation a few of days ago. Thank you.

Good to hear you are getting over it cookie, we always worry about our house keeping though - or lack of it but youíll get it back to scratch as soon as youíre able to.

So pleased to hear that you are getting over your cold Cookie. 

I have spent some time clearing out a cupboard this morning and then decided to sort through my recipes again I've thrown out a lot that I am unlikely to ever make.
