Up super early to get the podcast done...





Brealkfast at home with the radio and then, a quick listen to some Harold Land...


...from this box of goodies...


Out and to Anne's mum's...


...for chat, coffee and biscuits and halves of chocolate ├ęclairs...


The view from her window...


Jane arrived too...




The ladies...


We'd agreed earlier in the week that, artehr than a takeaway tonight, I would cook...

So, we drove to Lidl at Broxburn for me to get ingredients (I failed on a couple due to lack of stock) but the reason for Broxburn was the proximity of the Union Canal to the shop...

Sandwiches were enjoyed at the waterside...




Hmmm...


A call from sister Sheila - mum apparently not well..

Stroll cut short...


Dropped Anne home and headed out to Loanhead around 2...

Sheila was there - mum turned out to be fine - in fact she was actually less unwell than she usually complains of being...

Nonetheless I sent Sheila off and waited for the district nurse to arrive...

Dressings were changed, advice was given, reassurance was given and off the nice young lady went...

I was home just before five, having picked up the missing ingredients on the way...

And so, I cooked - chicken on creamy leeks...




It actually turned out pretty well - much to our surprise...


Another Saturday evening of good food, "Deutschland 89" and "Vera" ensued...

Highlight of the Day : Cooking...successfully...
