For one brief shining moment I was cold free. It was long enough to celebrate MrsDrWho's birthday. Twice. One at a posh restaurant!! I had:
Miso Glazed Trout ,Autumn roots, slow egg, forbidden rice & xo chicken broth
And we ordered all the sides, the potatoes twice. There were six people so technically it was one side each. But we shared.
Roasted New Potatoes – dried olives & rosemary, aioli
Seasonal Green Vegetables – tossed in garlic & toasted almonds
Autumn Leaves – apple, walnut, parmesan & sage
Miso Roasted Pumpkin – chilli & cashew
Goats Cheese Polenta – slow egg & smoked paprika
The weather has been icy cold and then warm, it was 18*C on the East Coast. But it was so icy here, that it looked as if it had snowed. Peri and Gilly love the cold weather. I am surprised their paws don't freeze, but they run and play and roll on the icy grass.
And now I have a head cold. The kind where you have to breathe through your mouth a lot. I am eating toast and Vegemite and I smell of Vick's Vapour Rub all the time. I do get up and walk The Labradors. If they go for a little walk I can stay in bed all day, happy-ish that they have had some attention.
I heard Lorelai Gilmore woofing in my sleep yesterday and when I woke up later on she had left her toy next to me, she wanted to play. Poor neglected dog. Peri has apparently been looking through the fence with a sad expression and extracting extra biscuits.
And now I am off to bed. Luckily The Labradors are trained to nap. I hope everyone is well and enjoying the weather wherever they are.
