Wide awake and no chance of going back to sleep for a while so I thought I may as well write today's entry.
These wakeful nights are a right pain but at least I should be able to have a snooze during the day. I used to worry a lot when I was still working because falling asleep in class is a sackable offence. There are just too many thoughts buzzing around in my head and they refuse to calm down and be compartmentalised.
I made a nice dessert yesterday from a couple of squishy nectarines that didn't taste wonderful. I de-stoned them and cut each one into twelve wedges. I fried the wedges in butter until they were taking on a bit of colour, then removed them from the pan and pulled off the skin. The fruit went into a bowl and the skins went back into the pan with some white wine and some sugar because I read that it makes the syrup pink (which it does). I just boiled up the syrup for a few minutes and then poured it over the fruit and let it cool. We had it with cream and it was delicious. One to remember.
Today I have a meeting in the afternoon but very little else apart from the usual household stuff so I think I will make a batch of shortbread for the weekend.
And now my head is starting to nod so I shall see if I can get back to sleep again. Fingers crossed. When you wake, have a pleasant day. 😊
