Right, it really is time to get back to healthier eating. I have experimented with the duck eggs and found out what they are good for and what I am not keen on so there are no excuses to keep eating lovely, rich, yummy sweet and savoury goodies.....any excess eggs can be made into cakes and frozen for another time. A time when we are burning off energy in the garden.
Meanwhile.....it was Valentine's day last week. We are old enough to realise that this is just a day for the youngsters and courting these days, all hype and making single unattached feel lonely. We agreed years ago that we are past all that, but despite everything there is always a card and token something. Dave managed to find a pretty card and put words from stock on the front and I had some cards made, not very romantic to give one I already had, but waste not.... He also found a box of Toffifee which I used to like but as he refused to share, I made a chocolate cake. Then of course, to make sure I got a share of gooey cake I had to decorate it with toffifee so he had a share of mine. Following?

I have been having a spot of bother with my little notebook. It has served me well (and I am using it now) but it doesn't have much power and has no battery so needs plugging in all the time, also I have been getting mini shocks, but not sure if they are coming from the notebook or the fleeces. Whatever the cause, we decided to go into the city of Veliko Tarnovo to get a new one with the money built up from my mini pension. And we didn't get a bottom of the range one either, for a change. I don't know how we didn't notice that the keyboard is furnished with the cyrillic alphabet as well as the 'normal' one, but it stands to reason that it would. It will take a bit of getting used to, some of the cyrillic letters are similar to our's, but in a different place as they have different meanings. I know I should know where the letters are by now, but I am still very much a novice in terms of hours spent using a keyboard. The computer is bigger and easier than my little mini so I will soon get used to it.
|A dull day and dirty windscreen (frozen washer) but thought I would take a few pics of the approach to the city, the cliffs are pretty spectacular and so different with the seasons|
We are still in our cold spell, with temperatures well below freezing every night and the odd scattering of snow. Yesterday, when the sun came out we had a visit from a sparrowhawk. Thank goodness we had no chicks about! But what a beautiful bird.
Dave has had a new project. With having all those
