    Another Dumb Question

    During our years on Friday Girl on the Broads we only ever left all the windows ajar and internal doors wedged open throughout the winters. We had absolutely no problems with moisture and never even took the bedding home!

    It would have been Iain's 70th today. I miss my dear old friend deeply.

    Christmas Fare

    We're having a goose tomorrow (my favourite) instead of the usual variations of Beef Wellington or Turkey or Rib of Beef on the Bone. We cooked a shoulder of gammon yesterday and what's left after evening sarnies and cooked brerakfasts will go out on Boxing day! Boxing Day is our "waifs & strays" day from around the village and it's cold cuts, baked potato and Winter salad (red and white cabbage, carrots, onions, sprouts and whatever else we may have. All shredded together with a little mustard powder and icing sugar and sprinkled with cider or white wine vinegar). I normally make that tomorrow morning to let it absorb the vinegar and it's still crunchy the next day. I personally add some mayo to mine but Mary-Jane prefers hers neat! We're trying out three new (to us) gins over the next week but still have the staple Gordons and Bombay Saphire to fall back on. A Very Happy Christmas to you all from misty Norfolk.

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    How I agree with you, Chris! When we bought our 6-month old BMW M-Sport 120D X-drive for 10k below list price I accepted the "run-flat" tyres as a sign of the future................ Coupled with shiny alloy wheels they are a nightmare when parking alongside any sort of kerb as they are so low-profile that you can easily scrape the whells. Also the "Norfolk Potroads" have claimed THREE new tyres in two years, which at almost £200 a go isn't very helpful. "Sue NCC" I hear... That's a joke! But one last thing, coming up to the end of her warranty BMW have given her a free 2 hour check in which they replace anything which isn't perfect. In our case an EG-something costing up to £600 was replaced foc.

    Wintertime Cooking

    When we've baked FB pies in the oven we have never had any problems with soggy pastry. We had one a couple of weeks ago and it was just fine.

    Broadly Speaking ... Almost There :)

    What a delightfull vid, Jean; it very well reminded me of our own long love affair with our Broads.
