Hello my boy,
I wrote a blog post about our visit to Rockcliffe and this was Fifi's comment:
It's almost like a TV series, you know, handsome young doctor arrives in wee village, gets up to all manner of capers. His mother moves there to become a writer and keep a vast garden of flowers, writes a vast novel. It'll be epic!
Well, it's an idea...
Lots of love,
PS Less of the capers.
Hmmm, certainly an idea.
Unfortunately I don't really get up to much in the way of capers (except for crashing my car, but I'm not sure that this counts).
It's kind of hard to imagine Rockcliffe as 'epic'.
I'm not up to a huge amount today. [Girlfriend] is at work, and I'm sitting in the kitchen. Yesterday was just the most horrible weather - driving rain non-stop all day. However, today is beautiful sunshine and very still, so I'll probably go outside in a bit.
I made some soup yesterday, it being soupy kind of weather. The day before, I looked at a food processor in Tesco and wondered about buying it (that's the exciting sort of caper I get up to), but decided I probably wouldn't use it all that much (it was the blending kind, rather than a proper Kenwood-style thing).
My soup was nice, but really more like soggy vegetables in water than Mum-soup, despite my best attempts at mashing. Ah well, it still has much-needed vitamin C.
Hope all is well at home. I'll probably phone in a bit, so this email may be a bit superfluous, but there we go.
Missing you all and the lovely cats.
