I suppose going to bed before seven on Wednesday evening was a bit of a hint that all was not well although I felt fine when I woke early morning yesterday. One of those things, I guess.
I was going to be away over the weekend, staying at my parents and going to the Arcadians' show, a sort of cabaret affair with music from Rodgers and Hammerstein but they've not been at all well recently (my parents, not R and H!) and I don't wish to share any lurgies with them. So a weekend indoors it shall be!
However, I saw something that cheered me up. It is the custom now for all the 'big' names to produce a Christmas commercial that is a sort of blockbuster. Some are good, some try too hard. Yesterday I saw the new Sainsbury's one, starring Mog, and it's really lovely! Well done, Judith Kerr, Mog and Sainsbury. The best of the bunch for me!
A few days ago I made some broccoli soup from a head of broccoli that had started dying in my fridge. It was perfect yesterday when I wasn't up to cooking - very tasty and comforting. I also have some celery that needs dealing with so I think I will make more soup today using a similar system but with celery instead of broccoli.
I wrote up the recipe and, yesterday, posted about the broccoli soup on t'other blog and will do the same with today's effort, if it works and, indeed, if I get around to it!
Hope your day goes well for you, gentle readers, whatever you are doing.
