    Afternoon all

    Been a busy morning here, between walking The Dog (tw), sorting out Christmas presents, organising airport parking for the next holiday, oh, and signing the contract offer.

    A couple of weeks left of retirement.

    There’s a lovely aroma of a stew or soup drifting in the kitchen windows from one of the neighbours - probably the ground floor back. It’s made me fancy some kind of soup for lunch

    It's so unpleasant out there that I forewent my walk this morning.

    It doesn't look as if the afternoon is likely to be any better, so walkless today.

    It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't windy, I'm not keen on horizontal rain all in all.

    Lunch was baked beans on Morrisons pumpkin seed crust toast followed by a beetroot sandwich and 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea.

    90% of the leaves have blown off the apple tree so in the event it stops raining before May, I'll clear them up sometime.

    As regards the rest of the gardening, I suppose it can wait until next year.

    I tried that with mrs-bp once. She assured me that PG tips do a wee flavoured tea bag. Though I have never seen one in the shops?

    And so it came to pass: Scotch broth, with wholemeal toast, and the untoasted crusts of the wholemeal loaf and the sesame seed bloomer. Very tasty, and just the thing for an exceedingly damp, cold day

    I’m saving today’s sausage roll for later

    And along with last night’s curry, that frees up enough room for at least a couple of the surplus portions of the casserole I’ll be making tonight - I took the meat for it out of the freezer yesterday, forgetting that I was supposed to be holding off on making more casseroles until I’d used up the ones I have

    Flash of lightening followed immediately by a big crack of thunder and torrential hail.

    Dog has given up all pretence of wanting to go outside.

    Garden guys had just finished so that was good timing.

    Lunch has been the remains of last nights chicken casserole and a ham and cheese sandwich, as there wasn't much casserole left.

    The garden guys accidentally cut down a rowan, realised what they’d done, and made themselves scarce before the witches ride in on the storm
