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.”

I must say I hate those spray things they do the windows with these days. They tend to leave streaks and I agree with you that they make everywhere wet. I always have to go round all the window sills with a cloth to dry them off after he has gone.ReplyDelete
Very quick though.Delete
Just a heads up...there's 3 seasons to watch before Weds!ReplyDelete
We'll never make it!Delete
Who on earth is Nancy? I am guessing she's your housemaid - or perhaps an elderly neighbour.ReplyDelete
She's the Chinese lady who lives in my laptop.Delete
I like a bit of Bangra with my curry; it makes it taste even better.ReplyDelete
We have sausages tonight, I wonder what music Paul will select.Delete
I once went to a tai-chi evening class. I couldn't follow what to do next because when doing "it" it was impossible to look at the teacher at the same time. Then even when I did get some of it, I couldn't remember what came next! It always looked so easy when I saw the Chinese women doing it in the park from my hotel window in Paris. I gave up after one term.ReplyDelete
I found 'Nancy' on YouTube, it's really just a series of Tai Chi warm up movements. I went to classes once but couldn't get the hang of the sequence thing.Delete
I still do a few of the movements occasionally, but it was the sequence thing that got me, as you say, and the more complicated the movements got, the more important it was to see the teacher but it was impossible unless one could put one's head backwards, underarm, standing on one's head. His one demonstration while we all watched was never enough for me.Delete
