Shades, just in case you weren't aware there is an Aldi in Paignton now, up the road from Sainsbury's on the new housing estate there. I know it's a little way from Newton Abbot, but I've been in there a few times now, usually on the way back from eating cake on Berry Head
And, erm, Shades. I've noticed Monday has been and gone...
MF, sorry to hear your little one is unwell, and I hope he's okay. Looking forward to your report.
Yes, I seem to have got used to not working very quickly indeed. It's already been a month now, which is crazy really. I've just been sorting out my finances to a) reduce outgoings a bit and b) make sure I have income coming in, in the most efficient way. Of course I am going to need to cut back, but I'm in a fortunate position where I don't need to rush into my next job.
As a surprise, a friend of mine bought me an Indian Curry cooking class, which was really, really good. Basically, she asked me if I could stay in at her place to receive a parcel whilst she was at work, but she had actually taken the day off and organised this class for me...very sneaky I've never done anything like it before, but she knows I love Indian food so bought it for me as an early birthday present and a surprise. It was only a 2hr lesson, but the person running it was very passionate about her food and that enthusiasm did rub off on me. She showed us her recipe for a simple chicken tikka dish, as well as 2 really good chutneys. It was all made from fresh herbs and spices, as opposed to things from jars, and I have to say it was lovely! I'm going to give it a go myself
