a whistlestop tour

Well, the long update I was going to write about the weekend I spent in the Gower never happened, and now a week has passed, so I have even more to write about. This means it's going to be a condensed version, told a lot through photos. The phrasing I am using is a bit odd because one of the letters on me (!) laptop has stopped working - guess what it is...I can't even write what it sounds like because that requires the letter itself. It's the second to last letter of the alphabet.

Jo and I had a productive planning time in the most excellent Tinto Lounge, accompanied with good coffee and lounge eggs...



I had a great evening babesitting, where I got to sew some cards and some trousers...


Helen came round and we had a scrumdidliumptious chicken caesar salad - the best I've ever had. If thee would like the recipe, let me know. Delicious...


Then we went to The Old duke which is a pub that has live jazz all week long. We met a Chilean dude who had just arrived in England and had not slept for 32 hours...Here are the Severn Jazzmen...



I baked some sponge drops for the celebration of Sarah's birth - man - having a missing letter is frustrating!



Here is a close up of the inside...



And here is a massive beautiful green beetle (not sure what it was) that flew around our patio a lot and loved our flowers...



Then I made mousse for 40 people which went rather wrong but turned out ok in the end...(thanks Mum for all the advice - I love u.)

Just be glad you don't have to provide a bi-lingual version of your blog for those across the border. :)

Mum says, "I love you too!"

sounds like: "whai"?

I've struggled through this, but with more common letters - my solution was to find a word with the letter in on a website, or wherever, copy it and then Ctrl+v whenever I needed it - pain in the bum!

Thank you for your comments. :)
It's nice seeing these little snapshots.
