Conversions And Curry

This morning I converted the following posts from Classic to Block edits, with the last two being changed to Garden categorisation:

Wayback Machine helped by identifying one missing picture in the Transitional Objects post.

Nick Hayter visited to discuss costings for refurbishing the outside of the house. We will start with one stage.

This afternoon Jackie drove us all over to Westbourne where we met Becky and Ian at Spice Cottage in order for me to settle my losing bet over the England v. France Women’s Six Nations rugby match, the result warranting my paying for the curry meal. My main course was Tandoori King Prawn naga with Special Fried Rice. We all shared peshwari naan and onion bahji; I haven’t registered the other main courses. The men all drank Kingfisher, and the women soft drinks. The service and food was as excellent as always.


  1. It appears the Wayback Machine is so useful! Best of luck with your house external refurbishing and the family meal at Spice Cottage sounds delicious.

  2. WOW. I can’t wait to see the “outside of the house” furnishings. We always love to see renovations and changes people do with their homes. How many “my losing bet” did you lose? If nothing else, I hope you enjoyed the consequences of your betting hopelessness. 😉

    1. I took a knowing risk on the result of the England v France Women’s Six Nations rugby match. France won by just 5 points which was a very close run thing. So it was a win for me anyway 🙂

  3. Wonderful title, Derrick. I saw it in my notifications yesterday afternoon, but I didn’t open it because I was afraid it would make me too hungry. 🙂

    I know we will all be waiting to see what happens with the work on your house.

    1. Thank you so much, Merril. I may not be able to afford all that is needed.

  4. Mmm, your Tandoori King Prawn naga with Special Fried Rice sounds yummy! I wish we had a restaurant here that served that delicious food! Sorry about your losing the bet and having to pay. But it sounds like everyone had a good time.

    1. I was quite happy. I bet against England in the Women’s Six Nations rugby match against France, which was a close run thing.

  5. Conversions and curry…cool!
    Love the nest photo and especially the Owling with Attitude!
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
    PS…Coop and I have both had a rough past week +. Hopefully we are on the upswing now.
