I am attempting to write this while being mugged by Heidi cat. She is lying on the table between me and the keyboard, her wet nose pushing my hands every time I attempt to strike a key, I am making lots of mistakes which need rectifying. It's going to take me all night at this rate. Oh heck she has just gone ballistic jumping all over the place trying to catch a fly. Didn't catch it now her head is on the keyboard. She was out in the rain earlier and came in and jumped up on the table and shook herself like a dog, spots of water everywhere. She is a little minx.
Thanks all for your good blogs nominations, I've been having a nosey. Skywatch Friday has lots of stunning photo's of the sky. People can send them in from anywhere in the world. Spitalfields Life is all about the history of Spitalfields, which is a borough of London, if you are reading this from outside the UK. Quiltville BlogSpot is a very nice quilting blog with free patterns, try and ignore the adverts though. Auntie Helen.co.uk is all about cycling long distances on one of those sit with your arse on the ground trikes. It's my kind of blog, I shall be reading that. This has reminded me of Ian Stallard, a friend of mine from quite a few years ago, he rode from Lands End to John O'Groats on one of those things. He has a way with words, his report is a good read, so if you are interested here is the link. He is also into restoring classic cars and motorcycles, so one for the blokes to read I think. Ian Stallard Engineering.
While we're on about cycling, here is another story about an End to End ride, this time it's the other way round, from top to bottom. Richard Cannon from Down the Lane did it, there is a full report on his web site. Here you go. Richard Cannon bike ride.
Plenty of reading to be going on with there, it's like a library here, don't forget to bring the books back when you've finished, ha ha. That reminds me, I've had an email from our library, I have some due to go back.
Right, what's been happening here. My friend is back from hospital feeling a whole lot better now he has an electronic gadget embedded in his chest to keep his heart beating at a normal pace. Amazing isn't it. Lady dog was pleased to see him arrive back.
Look at the poor sunflowers. The strong winds have broken four of the stems. Can't be repaired so I have taken them off and stuck them in the pots below. I don't seem to have any birds in my garden, so I might take some of the flower heads to Barry's garden where he has masses of birds visit every day. He spends loads of money feeding them, and doesn't have any cats so they are a bit safer there.
In a small pan put one chopped onion and a grated courgette. Cook in a little oil, I used sesame seed oil. Add two teaspoons of linseeds, some curry powder, and garlic puree, and a shake of mixed spice.
Heidi cat is back, I'll wrap it up now, not going to get any peace from her. Toodle pip. Have a nice Sunday.
