(For local friends, peanut butter Kitkats are back in the shops! - And they are delicious and to be avoided at all costs, of course.)
Hello. It has been a wet and grey day here. I did a little catching up this morning, by popping in to see my friends (the ones with the twins, who are now nearly 9 years old. How did that happen??) That was good. I wandered around the chemist/gift shop for a while, and just generally did the Saturday morning in the village sort of thing. Some fresh vegetables, eggs so I could bake, and then I stopped at Margaret's house (the garden fairy) to drop off some flowers. Her husband went for a cardiac stress test yesterday and ended up having an emergency angiogram and a stent put in to open up a blocked artery. He is one very lucky man indeed.
Cold wet weather is baking weather, isn't it. So I baked one of those blueberry muffin type cakes, and they always work fantastically, and look wonderful. I have made them with every kind of berry and they just never fail, and are always delicious. The link to the post where I linked to the recipe is here. That is the MOST ridiculous sentence I have ever written. But I am sure you will all work out what I mean if you want to make the cake. You really need to make the cake. Now.
It is now Sunday, not Saturday. I wrote all the above yesterday and then Nicky arrived and the conversation was rattling along, and photos were gazed at, and food was consumed and there was laughter involved and then it was midnight and I went to bed.
So I never got round to posting anything at all.
This morning, I had an email from a friend saying that she was having a problem posting a comment here. That she got a weird message and I know that other bloggers have had readers saying that they were getting blank pages and all kinds of hassles, so it is not just me. Can you PLEASE email me at lal50 at btinternet.com if you also have a problem? I think the solution is to switch back to the old blogger interface, but I am not 100% sure. I suspect that those with the new interface (me) have no problems with blogs also using the new interface, because I have not had any problems leaving comments so far. If ever there was a kiss of death, that would be it. We will see.
I will switch back tonight if that is the solution.
Right. Consider this yesterday's post. I will be back later.
