So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

I love these things! Posted by Hello

Busy week past. Helped along nicely by a visit from the bold Reidski with lad in tow. Meant drinking mid-week which I don't do any longer. Perhaps it's an age think but when I overindulge during the week I just can't get away with it they way I used to. So, when the wine ran out and I opened the Havana Club, well next morning I felt like shit pretty much unitl lunchtime. Made worse by the fact that everybody at work was on holiday, going on holiday or off sick. Reidski was on fine form though, despite having had a work related prob, which seems to have been overcome to some extent. Following the footie, the young'un gave up with Civilisation 3 and came to join us playing some music. He was most impressed with his dad's bass playing virtuosity from a 15 year old tape I had put onto CD. Then in a short music quiz made a pretty good stab at guessing that Robin Trower was Jim Hendrix - scoff you might but I think it was shit hot for an eleven year old.

We've been glued to Masterchef over the past few weeks and were at a loss last week as it has finished. So to compensate we've been doing it ourselves so to speak. Bloody camera batteries have fizzled out on me otherwise I would have been able to show off my starter of duck breast on black pudding and rhubarb with a salad on the side. Bloody outstanding as was the lamb casserole with roast potatoes and purple sprouting brocolli - get it while you still can.

thewife can cook most things but claims she just can't bake cakes. This weekend she's decided she is going to have another go as it's Lady El's birthday and a cake is forthcoming. Pottering away all afternoon in the kitchen and out she comes with...............two flat sponges. Seems she can't bake cakes after all. You should try her lemon and blueberry loaf though!
