Up early and worked on the updating of this yet again and of the uploading of last Saturday's weekly playlist...

Also recorded the one due out today, which will be posted shortly...

Meanwhile, Anne organised some carpet lifting...


In the afternoon, a visit to the carpet shop started the ball rolling on the re-covering of the stairs and landing with some nice new carpet...

Next door to the carpet shop is Guitar Guitar - from where I have been swithering re the purchase of new electric guitar for some considerable time, my old Ibanez brown effort having been bought, second hand, way back in 1982 or 83...

Today was the day...


Nice...


Not so nice (apart from the guitar and the CDs)...


Meanwhile, updating continued...


In the evening, to Meg the Black Cat's ex-mum, Julia's, where we were also joined by Phoebe the Black Dog...


Halloumi Cheese was sampled for the first time - in a salad with watermelon, red onion and a lime based dressing...

Very tasty...


To go with the main course, Julia whipped up a cheeky wee salsa verde...


...and she Anne and I sampled the pages of a couple of recent cookery book acquisitions from Diana Henry...



A yummy Silverside beef dish, with superb potatoes, veg and gravy was said main...


Oh yes...


Pre sweet, we all went for a walk with the Phoebster...


...returning for tuilles filled with lime creme fraiche and accompanied by flavoursome Scottish strawberries...


..and Phoebe got something she liked...


...but had to find them first...



Julia helped...


Macadamia nuts were also on hand...


What a wee sweetie Phoebe is...




Home around eleven...

Another good Saturday all told...

Highlight of the Day : Wined and dined by Meg's ex-mum...and getting a new guitar...

Nice guitar and cute dog, or maybe the other way around.
