We’ve been snowed in for nearly 18 hours now!!!!! There’s at least an inch of snow outside!!!!!!!
The neighbours went out yesterday and haven’t been seen since. I do hope that they’re stuck somewhere and haven’t gone on holiday – that would be really annoying.
Worried about lavatory paper and have been experimenting with a torn up Saga magazine. Feeling nostalgic for Bronco loo roll now.
Attempted catching a pigeon in the forlorn hope of milking it as I don’t like black coffee.
I noticed that Lo, she is a terrible Goddess has been Googling how to cook rump. She thinks I didn’t spot her eyeing me when I was bending down to knit some extra socks directly onto my feet. I’m taking precautions now and have been walking backwards ever since.
If you don’t hear from me again please hand this blog to the police.
Wish us luck. Oooooh, there’s a re-run of Grouting For Beginners on the telly … whoooooooosh.

    Casserole of rump

    6x8oz pieces of rump
    1pint red wine
    2 onions
    6 med carrots
    3oz grated ginger
    5 bay leaves
    1 clove
    2pts stock
    sea salt

    Cook in the oven for at least 2.5 hrs @ 170degs (I’d give it 4hrs, considering the age of the carcass.)

    I think you will be OK. The snow will keep the gas (or the electrons) quite cool so the cooking process will not be very effective.

    I’m concerned that my favourite occupation, sitting, might be a tad tricky though.

    What? A few inches of snow and you’ve ground to a halt DP? Shame on you…

    I’m a weak willied Southern softy trying to live up to expectations – it’s going very well.

    We’re holing up in the shedio until the thaw comes. Hope the roof holds up…

    Good luck with that. You’re very brave.
