Pinchito spices from Barcelona arrived in the post today from Smitonius . So chicken pinchitos (brochettes ) tonight then .
And lemons from Marcel's aunt's little farm in Corsica brought back via Husband will form a bed of lemon slices for baked mackerel tomorrow night .
Don't you love edible souvenirs !
Then , having spent all last weekend feeling decidedly peaky , and after a fraught week at work .... the boiler and power keep on dying and , even if we could entertain preschoolers in a freezing room , the lack of a telephone makes it illegal ..... I'm ready to PARTY !!
Well , Sonata-style anyway . I'll be sewing this evening , keen to finish this ....
which reminds me of this ( stained glass in a Haarlem cafe )
now I have a good look at it !!
And on Saturday a Collector's Fair beckons .
Have a good weekend ...
