Is Rudi on board a boat here? I think he might be, in which case I am happy. For I am off on a boat trip later myself. A blind date with someone called Oliver. I am breaking all dating rules by not meeting on neutral ground. What if he is a nutter and he gets me drunk then chucks me overboard? Hmm. I shall text his car registration to Rosalind just in case I don’t make it back to dry land. And the name of his boat. Yes dear readers, I am going on a date with someone who owns both a car AND a boat. Heavens.
Rita came over last night and I made Rudi’s Spaghetti Sauce. It’s a good one to do when you know you will be talking 19 to the dozen and quaffing copious amounts of red wine as you cook. Easy peasy. Rita had a little weep when she got all melancholy about moving house. She has lived in the same house for over 20 years so it is much more of a wrench than my forthcoming decampment. This time next week I will be installed in the Palace of Solitude with NO LANDLORD. I will no longer have to mind my Ps&Qs. I will be the mistress of my own destiny. Bring it on.
Please do post the next installment about the date with oliver, owner of car and boat. I’m enthralled. xx
And does the sauce also have red wine in it? x
Yes my dear! It sure DOES!
You froze on my blog roll at the celery a la shrimp four weeks ago – I thought you were on holiday or something.
But no! You’ve had a swanky revamp. I approve: it’s very swish indeed.
WELCOME Mr C! Yes, it is rather SWISH isn’t it? And I do love the word swish. My designer suggested I switch to WordPress which I have done but there are all kinds of downsides like losing all my followers (boo hoo!) – I may find a way of posting to Blogger at the same time as WordPress which might help though! Hope all is well with you xx
I also lost track of you as my blogroll didn’t list any new updates. I thought you were on sabbatical so it’s been great finally catching up with you and your adventures.
Keep us updated on the dates too. I remember that stage and wondering if the date would be my last–in the sense that I may end up in plastic bags in some alleyway. Gruesome I know. But it’s one of the many things you consider in these circumstances!
I just read a really bad (so bad it’s good) Valentino bio. Just seven cents plus postage from amazon.com–it mentioned that he was a huge glutton and loved his food, sometimes eating three helpings of pasta for breakfast. Obviously it was exaggerated but I’m sure his sauce is delicious.
I switched from blogger to wordpress which means all my followers have lost the link which is a big shame. Not sure how I find them all again – it’s on my list of things to do though!
