That's the trouble with glorious full moons - they need clear skies, which usually mean it's cold ... [Big Grin]

The wind's eased off a bit now (it was gusting at over 100 km/h at lunchtime), and there's a bit of snow blowing about.

I'm pottering about on here while I wait for the bread-machine to do its thing for a batch of French sticks.

Mustn't forget about it like I did last time. [Hot and Hormonal]

The full moon was glorious here, too, as I went for my dawn walk.

Today, NOT next week, I must get organised!

...but first I'll read the last three chapters of an online story.

I finished the story, we went shopping, we came back, we had lunch and I've just woken from a 2 hour nap so I'm getting there slowly.

[Big Grin]

I have also written a grumpy letter to the Head Office of my bank [cc to the local branch] complaining about being hijacked into their Preferred Customer Scheme with neither consultation nor consent and have then been charged for the privilege! I never wanted to join the scheme in the first place! I have asked both personally and by phone to be removed from the scheme with, so far, no success whatsoever.

Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!!!!!

I have reminded them that there are other banks out there and that I can always transfer my account elsewhere.

I am not a natural complainer but when moved to the tipping point I can really quite enjoy it.

D's brother-in-law, who is in general a very mild-mannered sort of chap*, is an absolute whiz at writing letters of complaint if he feels he's been on the receiving-end of duff goods or services. I'm not sure how he does it, but he's been known to get compensatory freebies such as tickets on the Eurotunnel just as a result of letting them know about some shortcoming or other.

After a sunny and glorious day yesterday the weather looks to be more typical of a bank holiday weekend with heavy rain and strong winds forecast (and the latter looking to have already started). At least it means I won't feel guilty for snuggling up under a blanket with a cat, my knitting and after today, a supply of Eastr eggs!

Blimey, it's grim out there. It wasn't bad early when I went into town to buy last minute bits-and-bobs and stopped to eat a falafel and sauerkraut (inauthentic, but tasty) from a cart in the market. Now, it's 4.30 and I've had to put the light on and I can hear the wind howling through the walls.

How marvellous, I love the episode "speed" with Dougal and the milkfloat. Just marvellous. "I love a good mass". Such a great line.

In the supermarket yesterday and a cheery supermarket checkout person - I got a few offers and his line on that "it's a great day to be alive". That made my little day.

Many favourite moments and wonderful lines but I have a special place in my heart for "My Lovely Horse". And have been known to sing it in the car.

I've made a chocolate fudge cake (from a packet mix). There's nothing like a hunk of freshly baked cake, still hot from the oven, and the flat smells wonderful.

With your crumbs disintegrating

Not just me then. It was released as a single at the time, sung by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy (who recorded the theme song) which I bought for a friend. I still get texts from her at odd moments asking "Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing in the wind"?

Father Ted is a work of genius; I think one of my favourite quotes is "I just said 'feck' to the Bishop!!!"

I've been a moderately busy piglet today: we had a friend round for pre-Easter dinner, for which I did lamb-shanks (aren't slow-cookers wonderful?).

I also made some bread-sticks yesterday (first attempt; will definitely do again) to form part of the starters, along with charcuterie, pâté and home-made roasted red pepper spread, which all went down rather well.

I bought a lamb shank for today and realized too late that this isn't going to be as quick a cooking job as I wanted. I don't have a slow cooker and don't want to have to braise it for 2.5 hours (when what I wanted was a simple roast) but see no way round it. Nor did I want to have to think about putting the oven on for lunch at 10 am. Ho hum.

(Yes I am grateful I have food to cook and the means to cook it, although it may not be what I had in mind.)

Funnily enough we were discussing this on Good Friday - Crosthwaite church being the spur (it looks tiny until you realise it's a long way away... logical, but something to do with the way it can be seen from the road).

Contrary to the weathermen, my cross-country runs to and from Hereford on Good Friday and today were glorious. Yesterday, however, was only good for indoor amusements, namely G&T and Canasta.

Last night at the Easter Vigil I chanted the gospel reading. This is done by singing on one note and going down a third at the end of every sentence. It reminded me of Ted & Dougal's rendition of that classic song.

Just really grateful I don't have to attempt going to work today. Wind speed being what it is, I'd anticipate arriving in about 5 minutes. Assuming no fallen trees in the way.

With each gust my flat is vibrating as if someone's turned the bass beat up. Fingers crossed no power cuts, this is a day for staying in.

I woke up to find my garden table and chairs strewn across the lawn. One of the chairs is clearly broken, fingers crossed the table is OK.

I'm certainly not going outside until the wind eases. Looks like we'll all have a jolly afternoon of playing find-the-dustbin-and-matching-lid in our street.

It's blowing quite a hoolie out there! Current abode is a couple of hundred feet higher than previous abode and whilst it seems more secluded, being far end of a longish cul-de-sac, it seems to rattle a whole load more.

I have discovered after a very blustery walk along the road by the reservoir yesterday being several stone lighter is a distinct disadvantage in the wind! I did have to stop several times to re-balance myself!! [Eek!]

Wild and wet here in the night but calming down a bit now. I gather Storm Katie is similar in shape to the Great Storm of 1987, though nowhere near its intensity. We lived on the south coast in 1987 and it was absolutely terrifying. [Eek!]

In other news, Nenlet2 is home for the weekend and last night Nenlet1 came over with her husband and we all had a lovely family meal. [Axe murder]

Not in this bit we don't. Katie hasn't entirely finished with Norfolk, apparently, though she is calming down a bit. Or was.

Went out this afternoon as it was a lovely sunny day and found that half the countryside is now under water. This included a significant part of the car park I'd just arrived at.

I went away as there was no parking space left and off to a tiny country village where I can almost always find a space, only to find it was packed out with people apparently wanting to visit a museum of agricultural vehicles. To which virtually nobody ever goes. That's Bank Holiday desperation for you I suppose.

Poked my nose out of door this afternoon. Pleased to report that the garden table is NOT broken and the dustbin lids were actually still in the front garden. Curiously, the dustbins themselves had been blown further than the lids. Anyway, I got everything matched up without arguments with the neighbours.

Not much storm damage around here apart from a large conifer blown down in the park. The pictures on the news look nasty - roofs blown off and scaffolding blown down - but nowhere near as bad as 1987.

If Anne is married, she’s looking at George, who is unmarried. If Anne is unmarried, Jack is looking at her.
