Good Friday

I treated myself to a butter chicken curry for tea.
Winnie ate most of the prawn crackers, she loves how they dissolve in her giant gin trap mouth.
Like my print of the sea Pinks on the dunes these little treats are so much better than say an expensive weekend away in Paris
And oh so cheaper....

I spent an hour and a half on the phone with my coolly objective friend Nige tonight which gave me some perspective and the walk around Trelawnyd with Mary that followed saw the village strangely busy with late evening promenaders enjoying the balmy evening.
Mrs Trellis had been sorting the church's Easter Flowers, Trendy Carol in another  light spring outfit and Stan the man doing a bit of late dusk gardening. All had a chat today, as Hattie did from the choir, She looked pale after a recent illness and I reminded her to call me if she needed something.
She's quite a Beautiful young woman

I'm now drinking lots of  gin and have put on a classic DVD.
Good Friday? .......naw....

  4. Well, scant comfort, John, at least you weren't nailed to the cross like Jesus. Honestly, the trouble some people go to only to find themselves resurrected. Which reminds me: What is it with Fridays? Even when they are not the 13th?

    Chin, chin,

  5. Things sound fine, John. Good to have an honest chat with someone you trust.
    "Breakfast At Tiffany's" is my all time favourite movie.
    I felt very grown up when I left the theatre that afternoon with my best friend.

  7. Prawn crackers with butter chicken? That's certainly a food fusion.
    I hope tomorrow is a better day for you, one day at a time and all that.

  8. How good it is to talk with a trusted friend that is not too close to a situation. An objective view from such a person can really help when we've been living with it "in our face" for a while. Been thinking of you. xx

My crocs went in the bin.I slid down the last 3 stairs of where I had lived for nearly 40 years and broke my foot...the next ones went in the bin when a wasp flew in to the toe holes on them and stung my toe which led to a lot drama cause my leg went dead.Crocs should have a health warning on them!!,Even more so when they are about 10 years old,as mine were!!,xx

  12. This last gin was a bit strong never mind it will strip the plaque off my teeth. Back to the kitchen to undertake research into the perfect gin/tonic ratio. The things I do while striving for perfection it's no wonder nobody understands me or is that the gin induced gibberish I talk.

  18. My fir.st gin was when I was 4.
    My Marine Corp grandfather had some pals over to play cards.
    Tiny me went around the table having sips when no one was looking.
    No one could understand why I was wobbling around the house giggling .
    I took a very good nap.

    Audrey was beautiful for all of her life. I read a quotation from her just today: "For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

    Hugs!

  27. I don't think I've ever watched the whole of Breakfast at Tiffanies,..must do.

    I consider Easter to be a time of new beginnings, I am not religious but spring and Easter are renewal, freak starts...I hope it is for you John xx

  28. Highlight of my Good Friday was taking the car for an MOT retest. There was just one defect I had to get fixed. It was quite sunny here but nothing like England temperatures as yet.

  29. The best rendition of Moon River, I think. She should have done her own singing in My Fair Lady. Hope it's not Black Saturday. Any gin left?

  32. Care for a little gin? has quite a racist and strange meaning in OZ. Nevertheless, a tot of gin is good. Just add ice, no tonic.

  33. Moon River and gin....two of my favorites!
