Reading And Conversion

Having this morning finished reading Lawrence Durrell’s “Justine” I later published

This afternoon I converted the following posts from Classic to Block edits, changing categories of the first two to Garden:

This evening we all dined on Jackie’s classic cottage pie and tasty gravy together with well cooked carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank Hacienda Don Hernan Rioja 2019 given to me by Ian last night.


  1. Oooohh, be careful, Jackie! So close to the road, you guys drive on the wrong side of the road. ????????????☺️

    1. Minced beef with a mashed potato topping – including onions and anything else you like. Thanks very much, Dale

      1. Ah… it is what I thought. Shepherd’s Pie, Cottage Pie, same difference, give or take the type of meat, the addition of veg. 🙂

  2. YAY, Jackie! She knows what to do!
    PS…Just for fun…
    “Sleep. Eat. Buy plants.”
    “Do you, Gardener, take this Garden to weed from this day forth?” (HA!)

  3. Jackie and you don’t appear to age. Perhaps it’s all that gardening. 🙂

    We normally only see your garden oasis in the back. Do you hear the traffic sounds?

    1. We do, Merril, but we have double glazing at the front and the back oasis muffles it. Thank you very much

  4. Most appropriate: Brussels sprouts with a Belgian beer! Hoegaarden is actually brewed not too far from where I live. And now I’ve changed the settings I will get notified of your posts Derrick. I was wondering why I hadn’t seen anything from you for a while!

    1. I’m pleased, Denzil. Thank you very much. Jackie has been round the factory

  5. Another good productive day, I admire your hard work.
    I love cottage pie especially when peas and carrots are cooked in the mince mix. For some odd reason I call both types of pie shepherd’s pie.
    It’s breakfast time and now I’m even more hungry.

    1. We have always done the same with the name – blogging keeps me on my toes 🙂 Thanks very mcc, Sue
