wednesday now floats upon the air, and sends from far, a wildly-wailing note

'ning

nippier but forecast a smidge brighter

ride or stroll, cafe, wfh on annoying admin, check on tax avoidance, bubbly

    Up early for no reason so longer walk with hounds, some work and now waiting for the kettle to boil.

    More work snizzle and later is a run with friends

    Is that wailing note coming from Mrs SG in the shower?

    Morning Samuel Taylor Coleridge fan club and chooktas

    Only 1 DW for school today as Tricky is getting shifted to a portacabin whilst her classroom gets revamped so she gets to skive.
    Beans the fooligan has resumed his evening walks with me and to add to the routine, a good scrap is always in the offing. It involves me not doing what he wants me to and then him trying to kill my right arm and then we make up. Deep purr.
    The weather is a bit dull again but the birds are singing, there's no wind at all and the cloudy murkiness gives everything an air of serenity.

    Morning
    Lovely day pity I’m not in a fit state to make use of it, cold lingers on. The one of the cats here is in the dog house as he decided he needed to mark his authority by peeing on my clothes. The rewards you get for feeding and caring for them.
    The guilty beast.

    A morning in the cave while Mrs 666 deals with the handyman installing some fencing in the garden and some guttering to collect rainwater on her pottimg shed.

    Then off into town as there's a free dinner on offer - going to an Austrian restaurant which is a bit unusual but reminded me from old ski trips that I like schnitzel so might have a bit of that.

    Pedal pedal, sunny sun, too much work, no likely.

    He/she looks very upset, poor thing.

    Afternoon folks,
    Sunny but cold for the wobble in this morning, slightly wind assisted methinks. The ride home yesterday was certainly harder work than the ride in. Busy day of fending off stupidity again, computers are being obstructive.
    Out for belated birthday curry with the Wednesday night drinkers lately, going to what claims to be the finest Nepalese restaurant in Kingston. Not an overly proud boast as it's also the only Nepalese restaurant in Kingston.

    Full day in the glasshouse tending / sorting 100s and 100s of the tender plants and moving them into cold frames in the Walled Garden. Not my garden (I wish) but the volunteer session in the NTS one. Got well warm with the sun peeping out, hurrah. T-shirt time.

    Couple of bonus freebie take home plants for my place. Now having a deserved coldie sitting out front and enjoying the sunshine and birdsong. Is this Spring sprung at last?

    @V68 :) Looks like I'll be going to the finest Austrian restaurant in Marylebone.

    Fischers, 😋 schnitzel comes with potato salad but I’d get a side of chips or buttery garlic mash just to be sure 👍

    Weirdly I had schnitzel on Sunday night. Damned fine schnitzel. With a vinegary but somehow creamy potato salad and cucumber salad. I'll leave it to a professional to describe.

    Today was wfh after an early walk with the dog. I'll be taking the bike to Porlock tomorrow. Talking of that, Mrs B³ had a friend and her family stay there, our first "guests", and they broke the fcuking telly somehow.

    Looks good 👍

    Tried to make German/Austrian potato salad a few times. Beef broth, German mustard, vinegar, onions and oil. Best made the day before. Haven’t nailed it yet but decent.

    Yup, did just that, plus the herring and salmon starters. Plus a dessert. I'm stuffed now. Got a few air miles as well as the boss asked me to pick up the tab so he can sign it off rather than him getting the CEO to sign off his expenses :smile:
