Late to the party...Poldark!

I know, its been on TV for ages, yes many friends have loved it, and recommended it, and also yes...a very attractive leading man! But eventually, after all this time, and thanks to Netflix I am now on board the Poldark train!

Whilst searching for something to watch (as often happens) it came up in the 'recommended for you' list, and I happened to be in the mood for a historical drama...I also love Cornwall as we went there for our honeymoon. So I clicked on it and began episode one, instantly loved what I was seeing.

So, if you like them are thinking 'Duh! We could have told you that' in relation to the greatness of this programme, my apologies - now excuse me, I have more to watch!

New blind for the window.

It may sound incredibly dull, but I bought a blind for our kitchen window MONTHS ago and today it finally got fitted, our friend who did it made my day, not only because it will make the room slightly warmer, but when we have the kitchen lights on at night, our big window illuminates the entire row of houses that run along our garden!

So its a happy Saturday thus far, and tonight we can roll the blind down and appreciate it's glory! I hope you are having a good day too out there.

My Pumpkin...

Last spring I found some pumpkin seeds that I had forgotten about, they must have been fairly old but I planted them anyway with the goal of growing at least one...hopefully large enough to carve on Hallowe'en. From all the plants that sprouted, and two failed pumpkins which we lost to damage and slugs (bane of my life) we were left with one...rather rugby-ball shaped pumpkin, goal achieved!

So, I went to it last night, knife in hand ready to create my usual jagged-mouthed face, but when I cut into it the flesh was so think I couldn't do much with it - design wise at least.I had managed to grow a pumpkin dense enough to feed a healthy number of people (if useless for artistic creations). So decision beauty has been turned into soup, and lots of it, the left over flesh is cubed and in the freezer.

Thank you pumpkin, you have / will feed us well!

My Pumpkin...(apple for scale)
