Good morning all, I hope it is bright and sunny wherever you are. Here there is spring sunshine and a nip in the air. It is 8.25am and already there is flour on the floor, the kettle is dusted with the stuff and my hands bring smidgens of dough to my keyboard. Yes, another cooking and booking day has dawned chez moi here on Walton’s Mountain.

Other news from here. Well I have to say I was saddened by the death of Margaret Thatcher yesterday. I know we are a country divided in their feelings for this lady, but I thought she was one of the greats, a woman with more balls and determination than any man. She did what nobody would dare to do, she took on the might of the unions and the wrath of the people. She made enemies and friends in equal measure, she was a power for good to kill the Cold War and stop the fear that a great many of us had grown up with under the constant cloud of possible nuclear warfare. She was indeed a lady of iron, a woman of substance. It disgusts me that people should celebrate on the streets in Glasgow and in some cities in England. Yes we all have our own opinions, I am showing mine here, but it seems somehow so wrong to actually sing and dance and be gleeful at the loss of any life, especially one who did so much for so many. So I salute you Lady Thatcher, may you rest in peace.
So I’m off back to my kitchen now. Idgy is away to Glasgow this morning on the train with her friends. Off to buy comics at the American comic shop. Off to have lunch and buy a new T-shirt. Then on to a sleep over. Yesterday we made a huge 2 litre bottle of Mocktails (non alcoholic cocktail) for her to take for the sleepover. Her backpack with the hooch, huge plastic goldfish bowl and funky straws was also stuffed with sweets, sleeping bag and best pjs. Just as well this was being sent on to the pal’s house before hand and not being dragged round town all day.
Meanwhile I shall be making foodie goodies and snapping photos. Oh and I’ll be washing up too, and sweeping the floor – doing my Zen Homing and enjoying the moment.
Have a great day.
