Hi desk hoppers! Happy Wednesday and happy WOYWW!
(If you have no idea what I mean by that, have a look at Julia’s website where all will be explained: http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/)
I have no desk to show you as I am not home. We’re staying at our (cave) house in the country for a couple of days’ rest. That’s not to say I have been sitting still. I recently acquired a cookbook by Paul Hollywood (in the UK well known for being a judge in the TV programme Great British Bake off)
and I made his chocolate brownies (with cranberries) Yumm, scrummy! Very nice indeed. (and not at all difficult).
Remember I mentioned we had so many grapes on our vine? Well, our lovely neighbour Serafino, who pruned it so effectively, told us that we needed to treat it with anti fungal powder. So I went out to buy the stuff, which cost all of 60 euro cents, (the price of a litre of milk). Serafino would do it for us and bring his own equipment. So he arrived the next day, pulled a plastic bag over his head (!).....health and safety you know.... this stuff is toxic.
Then filled his ‘equipment’
and then went round puffing the powder over the grapes.
I just stood there speechless. If I hadn’t photographed it, nobody would believe me. Within minutes he had ‘puffed’ the whole courtyard. Plastic bag was removed and off he went! I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. Never a dull moment here in Spain!
That's it from me today. I'm leaving you with a funny postcard. The 'naughty' old ladies by Inge Look. I love them.
I hope I will be like that when I'm older. A bit like the woman who wears purple with a red hat (a poem by Jenny Joseph... http://www.laterbloomer.com/jenny-joseph/ ).
Have a great week everyone!
