Don’t you just love Bank Holidays? Today’s was very traditional in that it was a complete washout. Yesterday was iffy but Easter Monday here in the Calder Valley was awful. Whilst the morning seemed fair to middling the afternoon was one of persistent rain and gloomy light levels that made you think you were in Winter, not Spring. There was no chance of getting out for a decent walk without getting soaked so the pair of us stuck to the indoors until the afternoon when meagre sunshine broke through the storms long enough to allow us to nip out to do some food shopping. Please Sir – can I go back to Asia?
Now it’s late evening and the only solace has been food. I knocked up a stir-fry earlier using some of the leftover Duck from yesterday which has been followed by Dawn’s superb ginger puddings.
I’m looking forward to normal service being resumed tomorrow as I’ve lots of things I want to get done. I’ve never been a great fan of the Easter bank holiday. I was always happiest when I was working across them and earning the money to spend when no-one’s charging premium prices and the kids are back at School! Still, there’s lots of things to look forward to in the next couple of months and my May Diary is packed to say the least. In the meantime, expect a few blogs from here and there as I stretch my legs around the UK on assignment for various clients.
With the weather being so crap today I’ve been limited in what pictures I can take, so today’s another foodie shot. Ginger pudding and cream anyone?
I’ve a small favour to ask…
