13th November 1979

Tuesday 13
Long day at college (that'll be a first!)
Bought my other brothers Crimbo pressy
feel really "fluey"
Sam still hasn't been called (Jury Service)



Gosh I know how Sam felt sitting in court all those years ago with my many years attending court... the wait is impossibly boring.. the adrenalin is pumping then nothing happens day in day out but you go home exhausted, then suddenly you are centre stage in the 'circus' that is British Crown Court... lol



I went for my appointment at the hospital yesterday and boo hoo I have to go back to work on Monday. Well I suppose 2 weeks out of the 4 I have not felt too bad although the pain is still there but lessening thank goodness.

The physioterrorists surely know how to push you through the point of screaming!!

I have so loved being at home for a change. I have cooked loads obviously drawing on the learning I had at college doing food and nutrition.. I even cooked an old favourite dish as a kid.... in fact I have doen it twice due to popular demand from my teen.



The dish is 'Scouse'. Yes the dish that gave my birth city residents their name... Liverpudlians aka Scousers.

Scouse is a very simple dish, with simple ingredients but takes about 5 + hours to cook ever so slowly.. so not convenient for full time working mums & dads.
I will be sending my recipe to populate (hopefully) a space in the Global Cookbook that Fuel My Blog are compiling..... so if you have a local recipe do join in it is a great idea.........

Classic song! Love it! 'Gold!'

Tony Hadley and the boys seem to have eaten all your side bar though....

70steen said...

Diane ~ side bar is looking fine from over here .... must be Mac Vision???

diane said...

OMG! I seem to be hallucinating about Tony Hadley!

This morning I swear the only thing in your side bar was a YouTube video of Spandau Ballet singing 'Gold'.

I'm going for a lie down.....

Is scouse similar to Irish stew?

70steen said...

Diane how bizarre .... I think my blog maybe posessed....

NM ~ I guess it is really ... they are all variations on a theme aren't they. I used to think scouse came from Ireland but apparently its roots are from the Vikings ... Labscause
