Well, here I go. My first blog!It feels very strange – writing in a vacuum, with no deadline, urgency or inspiration. Rather like addressing a room full of strangers who know nothing about me and aren’t that interested either. I wish I could come up with something really startling and impressive but seem to be out of sparkle at the moment. But I will work on it. Perhaps I’ll use this as a sort of diary – not daily, I know from experience I’m no good at that. Some days nothing looks good enough, or interesting enough, or tantalizing enough. Of course, one can always fall back on the weather – that good old British standby! Talking of which —-
R has made bread today and the house is redolent with the smell. Sadly he has lost his sense of smell – so loses out on the tantalizing aromas. I shall probably talk a bit about cooking sometimes. We are trying to think of creative ways to use tomatoes at the moment. We have bottled lots (40+), made soup, including some with only yellow tomatoes: it looks like a bowl of sunshine and will be a wonderful cheery sight in the dark days of winter.
I hope I’ll hear from someone – even ET if he’s around!
