jam of the day is strawberry

i had a business lunch with someone yesterday in a very posh restaurant, but they were 50 minutes late and i only had an hour for lunch so i didn’t eat (the cranberry juice is nice though). During my waiting time i did study the menu quite well and noticed you could get broad beans with jam on. which was a nice idea.

the mystery moth

lynda sent me this mystery moth which she had in her house and couldn’t identify. is it a mothetore – the mythical mothical creature, half moth, half goat ?

Oh dear – i thought this one was a car crash which seemed a bit in appropriate. it was actually making a point about the queues through the village to get across the bridge (but of course!)
