Another small garden project today in the shape of lifting Denis’s Dahlias! Gosh, we don’t hang about, we left home pretty early and were on Denis’s doorstep by just after 10am! Bev arrived not long after which gave us all the perfect excuse for a coffee-break!
…and boy, has Denis got a lot of Dahlias! They’ve been in the family for generations, and with Denis now 88 years young, it’s all a bit too much for him to continue the ‘annual ritual’. Still, lucky he had the Palmer-express team on-hand – and an hour later, it was all done, and said Dahlias were ready for storing until Spring.
…and we even had time for Ann to plant a load of bulbs too!!
Bev was on hand to take care of lunch. By the time we finished our pottering about, we were ready for sustenance. Bev did us proud with a humungous Lamb Mince with Tomatoes and Pasta Bake, all topped off with Mozzarella and Parmesan. Unsurprisingly, it went down a treat!
..and there was probably enough left over to feed Denis for another month-or-so!
It was Christmas Pudding for afters, which we just managed to squeeze down, helped along with custard and double-cream! Yummy Yummy!
Whilst I was there, I decommissioned Denis’ PC (as he hasn’t used it for years) leaving the machine to chug away wiping the hard-disk. He also now internet-free and saving himself £15 a month! When we left around 1.45, the PC was still wiping-away, and Bev agreed to keep an eye on it.
Next stop was our local Tesco to stock-up with bits-and-bobs for our Curry Night with the Costellos on Saturday – tomorrow is going to be a BIG day of food preparation.
Food glorious food!!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
