In the past week ....

Those of you who live in the UK will know that we've had some
gloriously sunny weather earlier this week, which has now turned
to cool, wet weather ... almost autumnal. A good job it has rained
as our garden was becoming too dry. So it's now back on with the
longjohns ~ Summer's over. :)

I gave a talk a couple of days ago to my local U3A computer group,
about shopping at Tesco online (and also using a supermarket
comparison site at, which compares prices
at 4 UK supermarkets). Mrs C and I don't shop online for food much,
(my last big online Tesco shop was 3 years ago), but we do order
organic food from Abel and Cole - the two of us get through a
family-sized box of fruit and veg in a week (and shop for more).
We also order eggs, fish and veggie-burgers from A&C as well.
We have to pay more for the food, but the flavour is amazingly
good ... the veg is very fresh and tastes as if it's straight out
of your garden.

Yesterday, our daughter R and her two children Little A and Baby J
came over to see us and spent the best part of the day with us.
So we became children's entertainers and caterers for the day ...
fairly tiring. It's very hard work looking after young children
as many of you will know.

We're watching a couple of episodes of "The Wire" (the 2nd series)
at a time ~ two more episodes left to watch now. It's brilliant.
We're not watching much else on TV at the moment, apart from the
occasional documentary such as Mary Portas' look at charity shops.

Hi Justin! Long time no blog. I've posted details about our baby girl on my site if you're interested.

I used to belong to a csa (community shared agriculture) for many years. We received fresh organic fruits & veggies once a week grown by local mennonite farmers...picked the same day we received it. It was fabulous.
