It was a bit wild and windy at times on Tuesday and the view down to the gate at the bottom of the croft had a wonderful background of breaking waves which sounded loud and clear up at GB's front door.
Another storm on the way?

My daily moan involves having a trapped nerve in my knee joint which in turn caused me so much distress in the night I had a bad angina attack. I lost my knee cap in a road accident when I was teenager and just occasionally one of the main nerves seems to get the wrong side of the bones in the joint. Exercising it, which is incredibly painful, seems to be the only way to get it back. The main consolation is that once it slips back the relief is instant. But in the meantime. OW! Hopefully that's my moan for the day out of the way. (I thought if hid it in the middle of the posting it might not be too objectionable!)
Yesterday I tried to make Florentines like they serve in the Woodlands Centre. I didn't succeed. I did make an acceptable creation but they weren't the consistency I was aiming it. So it's back to the drawing board where they are concerned. The consolation being that the trials are edible - sweet and chocolaty, what more could one want?
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
