Male Multitasking

As usual my eagerly awaited printing inks were found on the doorstep this afternoon, despite no-one having knocked.

I was therefore forced to continue my chicken stock creation from recently roasted bones, applying Becky’s flavoursome method; simultaneously printing 61 more of Karen and Barry’s wedding photographs;

and progressing my reading of ‘The Moonstone’.

Great care was taken to keep both book and prints grease-free.

Tonight’s dinner was slow roasted pork with crunchy crackling; Bramley apple sauce; tender green beans; firm Brussels sprouts , and tasty gravy. As can be seen I had begun my penultimate glass of the Saint-Emilion before the meal, as had Jackie her Hoegaarden.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

    1. Actually I don’t really cook much at all now, Sheree, but there have been times when I have done it all, notably when Jackie was still working. Thanks very much

    1. That got my attention too. lol. If I have even a little bit of sunscreen on, I manage to spread it everywhere. I would not ever try to go from cooking to photo printing to book reading under any circumstances.

  1. Chicken stock is always good to have on hand; I envy your postal system – even if no-one knocked (ours is defunct and we rely on courier services – they phone when they get to the gate); love the fact that you sip wine while you read; and am glad your day was rounded off with such a fine meal.

  2. I’m restarting reading your blog at this post – now that I’m home and feeling a less ill – and there isn’t a flower or animal to see, but I’m sure the next post will fix that…
