This morning we began preparations for the kitchen work beginning on Monday. First, a table in the Utility Room was cleared to receive the electric kettle, toaster, and microwave during the two weeks the Culinary Queen will be deprived of other cooking facilities.
Then began the clearing of the cupboards and packing their contents into boxes Jackie has collected in recent weeks.
The containers were then transported to the Library.
This afternoon, I watched televised Six Nations rugby matches between Ireland and Italy, and between England and Wales.
The Culinary Queen has committed much of her creations to the freezer, but we were able to enjoy a second helping of yesterday’s beef in red wine this evening. I kept back a bottle of Reserve des Tuguets Madiran 2014 and made a start on that.
