It's been a livelier week. Last week we had The Greatest Showman at The Orford Odeon. I was a model of restraint and had a glass of bubbly and popcorn instead of my usual glass of red and a Mars Bar.
I cooked the venison as a pot roast in the slow cooker with herbs from the garden, including myrtle leaves and berries in lieu of juniper. I think it is delicious, though Steve deems it tasteless. I have also slow cooked the quartered quinces and must get around to freezing them today. I think they're delicious too. I wish I was one of those people who don't enjoy their own cooking.
I had a suspicion that scallop pies were on the menu at The Fish Van so Jill and I trotted around to find out.
The other exciting news, from my perspective, is that I just trimmed 6 bushes with the hedgetrimmer. When I have undertaken this in the past, my wrists ache from the vibrations and my arms ache from the weight. But today it was easy peasy, apart from throwing the ball for Jill at the same time. The sessions at the gym must be working.
