I’ve often thought that the garden room here would make a wonderful exercise studio. So this morning I plugged in my laptop and did some Tai Chi With Nancy. I felt very smug about doing some exercise but when I did the ‘sweeping the skies’ move I noticed a load of cobwebs up in the vaulted ceiling. That quickly killed my feelgood factor and I had to do battle with the Dyson again.
After I finished vacuuming I decided to make a curry from yesterday’s roast lamb. I love lamb curry. While I was cooking the window cleaner arrived. He uses the new fangled system of spraying the windows with purified water. It’s quick but makes everything very wet. I tried my best to move Rick from room to room so he wouldn’t terrorise the guy but somehow he escaped into our bedroom and came face to face with him on the other side of the glass. He did a very good impression of a demented werewolf. Rick, not the window cleaner.
After lunch we watched an episode of Lilyhammer on Netflix (a black comedy based in Norway). We’ve only just discovered it and it’s only available until 21st November. It’s been on there for years and now we’re trying to watch the whole series in a week!
So, the lamb curry turned out really well. Most evenings we listen to some French cafe jazz on the Bluetooth speaker while we’re eating.
“What’s this music, it sounds Moroccan?”
“Bollywood Top Fifty.”
“To go with the curry.”
