Today is Saturday 31st July

It’s almost 5.30 in the afternoon and I have just accessed my blog. Windows 10 could not complete an update I didn’t ask for, for devices I haven’t got, and as I couldn’t remember the password to an account I didn’t know I had, they sent me an email to an account I couldn’t access because they couldn’t complete the update, thus I couldn’t log in anywhere. Ho hum.

The day has got away from us, though we did have a lovely walk along the prom this morning and ended up chatting to several neighbours on the way home. This meant we didn’t actually get back until gone 11.30, and so it was time to prepare lunch.
Fish today, the last in the freezer, so that went on the growing list and we ended up going into town for a basic shop.
We didn’t know the road was closed due to a market being on, or that they were crowning this year’s carnival queen today. Town was therefore heaving, and the supermarket packed. However, we were in and out in less than ten minutes as what we were after were things visitors didn’t want.

Hubby has had a can of chunky soup for his final meal and I had a prawn salad, so both of us have eaten well today. It’s been hot and muggy, and the forecast heavy rain has been dancing round us. Hubby has harvested some of our potatoes and the ones that got speared with the fork have been boiled up and will be fried tomorrow. Don’t know what we’ll have with them yet.

I’ve written four Hello letters and got them in the post, so they should hit the recipients mats in a couple of days. We’ve also had two people in for a cuppa at separate times, so have been quite socially active for a change and are ending the month with a ‘bang’ as there are fireworks due at 9pm tonight for said Carnival Queen celebrations.

Hope you’re all having a good day.
Take care and keep safe everyone.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Oh these updates 😱😑🀬

  2. My brothers who worked in computers, one built computers for IBM told me not to the software until 6-12 months pass as by that time all the bugs were worked out.

    Now you know why I went with Mac and why, when it was time tomove to Windows 10, I installed Linux Mint instead.

    Hehe! I feel your frustration on the computer update! My computer keeps asking me if I want to do it now – and I keep saying NO! As for the potatoes – have you considered potato pancakes? I’m making them on Tuesday coming up…

    • I think I made some by accident and they were quite tasty! I chopped the boiled spuds today and fried them in the pan with a little oil. It was a bit like hash browns but without the shape! Tasted OK though.

  5. I haven’t harvested potatoes yet but the tomatoes are starting to ripen. I see BLTs in our near future.

    • Love BLTs. We’ve harvested all our spuds but have some more to plant for a winter crop. Our toms are just starting to blush so will be a little while yet. We shall be harvesting some cauli tomorrow and our final cabbage
