06:30 am: all set for another day in paradise
We were both home for most of last night, so we put the time to good use clearing out our main food cupboard. Lots of the food and containers have gone to the great pantry in the sky, or the land fill at Silver stream, as the case may be. Cracked jars, out of date produce, mouldy fruit, duplicates or triples of items, varnish, saint, birthday candles, flasks, cricket bats, wine, wine substitute, we had the lot. And all the stuff at the bottom lightly dusted with flour. Then Viv went off to pick up the boys and everyone eventually went off to bed. In other news, Star Wars tickets go on sale this morning. And Dominick Hide still hasn't arrived. Give him a chance, he only left England on Monday. Today looks all set to be a glorious day, don't forget the solar eclipse at sunrise on Saturday. Be seeing you.

cricket bat?

(Link)
I've never tasted cricket bat with or without a dusting of flour. Is that a dish that is a speciality to NZ then? Does it taste any good? Probably not, if it was still in the food cupboard! We have just got back from ASDA so our cupboards are not as empty as they where after the holidays. We took Viv's mum too, who was telling us that she went to the theatre and church and that she is going to Liverpool tomorrow. It is good to see that the will is there to try and get out and about. It can't be easy but she was looking well. Take it easy with the tidying, you guys need some relaxation time too after the tough times you have been through!

It's quite a long story why Matthew ended up keeping his cricket bat and I'm not sure I can remember all the details but I seem to remember it had something to do with Ian keeping it as surity against a loan!!
Mum seems to be going well and certainly has sounded quite cheerful and busy when I've talked to her which is great. I'm pretty busy too, but I'm reasonably cheerful as well. Don't worry I'm really good at taking it easy, it's staying on task with boring stuff like tidying that's a problem, but we've done quite well and things are looking good!
I'm glad to hear you had a good holiday and look forward to seeing some piccies!

A saint in the cupboard

I must have missed the saint, which one was it? Did we keep him or throw him away?! Or maybe you meant paint?

It might have been St Anthony, patron saint of lost things... *snort*

Yes, I probably meant paint. It's a different sort of person altogether that keeps saints in a cupboard. Though the relics might be confused with the skeletons we all keep in wardrobes.
