Next week, im taking my Charge, to a Dorothy Wordsworth event,  not sure what to expect. should be good though.    (Dorothy lived with her brother, the poet William Wordsworth and his family, in the Lake District, for most of her adult life. Her energy and intelligence shines through in this exhibition, which celebrates her insight and attention to those details that make everyday life special. This exhibition helps us to understand quite how her influence inspired William Wordsworth’s poetry and also to see that this extraordinary woman deserves recognition in her own right. Wordsworth Museum, Grasmere. Tickets include a guided tour of Dove Cottage and family activities in the school holidays Adult £4.50 – £7.50, family £17.20, under 6s free http://www.wordsworth.org.uk Twitter @wordsworthtrust This exhibition closes 5.30pm (4.30 from Nov 1-Jan 5, closed 24-26 Dec and closed Tuesdays in Dec))

 

Then on the 24th, we are heading off for the day to a One Man and  His Dog sheepdog trial.   This I am looking forward to most of all, the last one I went to had a great outdoor clothing stall.  Really want to treat myself to some cosy jumpers~!

 

 

 

will be updating these events, and re-blogging my foody page  when I next get access to some Broadband service.  thanks guys!

how many of us have done this – please let me be in the majority!

back on a full time carer job, this time im in cumbria,  so a great adaptation to my foody writing, there is such a wealth of good food up here, especially of the dairy variety.  cant say too much, as Im writing an article for a magazine – cant give away too many details.   Wont be under the name you know, but under my Pen name.  It will be about cheese though so check your sunday papers in a few weeks time!  the them we are working on is Autumnal.  So its all berries crackers and cheesy niblets!   

 

im sure after all my emotional trauma I am being rewarded.  Im so busy I just cant stop spinning!    hence the style of todays blog, 

in a few days we are off to italy,  so plenty of food there for us.  then back for end of september.   

life today is a happy life!

No matter how much you want a day off, you will always be in demand when you have a dog!  Was so looking forward to catching up on household chores, (yes really I was, find it relaxes me to tidy up!),  looked at the rain outside, thought hmm could spend the afternoon making batches of soup, or baking cakes,  but no, Mr Woof has decided its walk time.

I tried to ignore him just a but longer hoping Mr Poppy would be home in time to take him, (Urgent case of GolfTeesers occured – he just HAD to be there to help!),  anyway, tried to pretend it is earlier than it is, but Mr Woof has a built in clock.  So much so as a subtle hint he’s dragged in my muddy wellies from the store and promptly dumped them on the new carpet.

So Out I go in a few minutes, I know we will both be soaked,  the house will stink of damp dog, and the machine will be filled with sopping hairy muddy dog towels used to clean up his coat.

Plus points however now out-weigh the negative ones,

Mr Woof loves the rain, so he will be happy,

I needed a hot shower anyway – so will have that when I get back in

Kitchen floor needed a mop

My PJ’s have just been laundered and smell lovely, as does my dressing gown.

Bought some new ‘summer’ slippers, they need road-testing

I have to taste test a Hot-chocolate with Chocolate spoon and write my review for work by the morning anyway 🙂

Looking forward to the hot-chocolate

Todays ‘chores’

OK,  so as a food writers researcher – I really do have to work hard to day, firstly, as soon as our PA arrives so the phones are covered – I have to leave the office and drive over to a farmers market to ‘test some produce’,  have been promised some extra tasty uk tomatoes!

After making notes, taking photographs, obtaining contact details, and have many ‘taste tests’ (all part of the job!)  am then being whisked away to sample a taste menu from a new refurbished Old English style pub.    The new chefs speciality is —— puddings!!!

I have such a hard job, thankfully its Friday so my bloated full tummy can have an early night and a lie in tomorrow before i have to put on the trainers to run off today’s pleasurable s!
