Yeah for themed evenings, we had haggis (meat and veggie), proper accompnimets, bits of Burns poetry, Scottish Military Marches and The Proclaimers on spotify and now the boys are enjoying a 'wee dram' of Talisker.
Now why don't any other poets have themed days and meals?
Author: Bee Nilson Date: 1964 Published: Pelham Books Ltd I picked this up earlier today in Oxfam, it reminds me of my farther, who had a few editions of Pears Cyclopaedia which engrossed me as a child.
This is arranged alphabetically, it's like a more no nonsense version of #200
The window fitters have almost finished, it's nice to have safe, warm, secure windows that don't feel like they could fall out at any time, and you don't have to prop open with bottles (they've replaced all of the windows on the back of the house, apart from the one in my study - so we've now got double glazing in the Elvis Suite, the upstairs bathroom, the living room, the kitchen and a new back door.
The back door has a window in it, which very clearly brings to the forefront the fact the generally boggy garden needs some attention....
Not to mention this sad, unloved bit at the back by the kitchen...
So, this little vanity project is a year old, and it's been fun, and helpful - even if I think I've brought more cookbooks since I started it. I'm doing some tidying up, adding better tags, author names, years, publishers etc so it should be even more useful. I've also done a bit of a site redesign, only a tiny bit of tidying up but enough that I'm happy with the layout now. Happy New Year!
