    That looks nasty.

    I remember sommat similar with a double decker on Dwr Y Felin road back in Ye Mystes of Tyme.

    Mind you I also remember seeing someone (a fellow skoolboy) dead in the gutter on that road, though I can't remember the details from 1966.

    As usual it's a temporary route change but under the circumstances wouldn't you be extra careful when the route is changed?

    I think it might be here:

    Google Maps

    This is the route of the 10:

    Doesn't go anywhere near there.

    Odd.

    I think the 34 goes that way to get to the park & ride, it's altered so much around there recently.

    Tea this evening shall be liver, bacon and onion gravy.

    I think I'll get things moving.

    Hair cut, monthly prescription collected, shopping done

    The prescription was lacking the weird substitution, and also the thing for which it substitutes, which I queried. They couldn’t find it on their system and concluded that the doctor, when making the substitution, must have neglected to send it electronically, so there’s probably a paper one at the surgery for me to collect. Nobody, of course, having notified me of this

    And it’s Thursday afternoon, so the surgery’s closed

    Still, the pharmacist confirmed my theory that everybody who was being prescribed ranitidine is now being prescribed something else because of the product recall leading to a major shortage.

    Sitting the lounge at GVA. It’s quite pleasant and has beer on tap (amongst other things). Shame I have to drive when I get back.

    The Scotch broth has been moved along to phase 2; I’ll give it three hours or so before the reaping

    This entailed extracting all the veg, which was in big pieces (half onions and so on), and chucking it in the blender; I don’t like chunky veg, or veg at all really, so that’s the only way to get myself to eat it. Then the bones were extracted along with the meat that had been left on them. Eight hours slow cooking had everything there falling to pieces, so the meat was peeled off and slung back in along with about eight ounces of the roast meat I’d reserved, all finely diced. And finally the “country soup mix” as Sainsbury’s have taken to labelling it: various dried peas, beans, lentils, and barley, which had been soaking since this morning.

    And lots of freshly-ground black pepper to give it a bit of a kick

    There should be enough soup at the end of it that I’ll be back to struggling to fit it all in the freezer, which is as it should be going into winter

    And so I did.

    Stages 1 & 2 done & dusted. Stage 3 happens tomorrow morning just after breakfast.

    The liver was from Morrisons and cut rather thicker than I like but it was nice enough & since I didn't divide it into two portions, there was A Lot Of It, along with the unidentifiable bacon rashers, which were also quite nice.

    I was incautious enough to consume a small quantity of the raw onion just before I started cooking and for a while I was wondering if I was going to throw it back up again.

    In the event it was ok.

    Sweet was stewed apple and custard which was pleasant, though the custard boiled over as I was engrossed in making the gravy, much to my enduring irritation.

    All good, together with 1.05 pints of the Good Glengettie Tea.

    Once I've had a shower it'll be time for Angel S4 E17, 18, 19 & 20 according to the crossover guide.

    <hiatus>

    How odd, I'd totally forgotten the tedium that is Jasmine.

    There might just be a reason for that.

    So E17 & 18 are all I can tolerate for now.

    Now watching a thing on BBC4 about model railways.

    See?

    I really don't like Jasmine.

    Tea tonight has been the rest of roast lamb (yes, there was more!), reheated in the oven, with chips and beans
