Yes, I've gone back to kitchen ingredients. Friday's blog was late because the system gets confused if I've used a title before. So extra work has to go into coming up with a title I've never used before. So sprig of mint should be fine, but we shall see. Prepare for part two of a tour around the larder/fridge/shopping bag.

Good weekend? A little twitching from me, in the company of some wise bird spotters who singled out a Cetti's Warbler, a Great Tit, a Heron, a buzzard, chaffinch (which get capitals? I'm confused) and a million coots. And I had a packed lunch which, in the great tradition of countless school trips, was demanding to be eaten by 10.30. I resisted till 11.15.

Today on Book Club duties with The Son by the prolific Jo Nesbo. Read some here! Jo is a trained economist who toured with his band Di Derre and played premiere league football for Molde FK. And has sold 20 million books in 40 languages. I know I know. This guy has talent. The Son is a cracking, standalone thriller telling the story of Sonny, a model prisoner who has taken the rap for crimes that others have committed. He hears the confessions of other prisoners until one of them says he knows Sonny's disgraced father was an honest man. Sonny decides to break out and exact revenge on those responsible. It's a top read and you can hear Jo (pronounced Yoo I think) at 6.

And GAME OF THRONES is back for some more axe-wielding, bare-chested fantasy romps on TV tonight. I'm on series 1 episode 2 so a bit to catch up I think. Game of Thrones oldies might be fun n'est-ce pas?

Your place at 5!

    Jennie - have a lovely day.

    Shona - Stop - at least for a minute, please. Just reading about your numerous achievements this morning is making me feel tired!

    Lady B - it was lovely to hear how DT is now a family activity in your household. Love it!

    It is a gloriously sunny day here today - a little chilly. Off to Edinburgh this afternoon so stuff to clear from desk before then. After appointments, off to see my great niece and have some birthday cake to celebrate her second birthday. I think that I am more excited about it than she is!

    Enjoy!

    Oh Jilly, sorry to hear you have a tough morning ahead of you. Take care.

    Amelia, I hope the good way is you arranging some sunshine for me coming over ;0)

    Dogs dropped off at groomers and not happy. That's when I began to doubt if the insulin was put back in the fridge??? I have to drive home and check but all was well.

    Now safely captured in Game of Thrones Office.

    Good morning all - the sun has found his hat today and is trying to warm things up a bit.

    I slept quite well last night - apart from Mr having a spell of dreaming/kicking/shouting!

    Fat club first today for the weigh-in to see how much I've lost for the sponsorship.

    And then....

    I'm looking forward to meeting the children and their mum and dad again. Another step along the path........

    Have good days all. I shall report back when I can. x

    PS - Shona - you wear me out, just thinking about it!! ;0)
