    Quite frankly, I have no idea. But that's what happened one night last winter. It tasted bad and smelled even worse.

    Well, then I'd suggest you cook instead... It's never too early to start. I started cooking for my family when I was about 12.

    I am very well indeed, thank you How are you? How was your day?

    I've enjoyed a quiet morning and then I had a friend over for the whole evening and then I spent time with my parents.

    My day was very nice. A friend unexpectedly invited me out to the kids' indoor play area so we went there and had lunch, then I came back mid afternoon and watched French TV with the Pixie.
    And now I'm working again

    Pfff, no garages... Well, I haven't done much today, but I'm still roughly where I should be, so that's alright. I'm hoping to have time to make some progress tomorrow, with a bit of luck, which would help greatly I've got a funeral to go to at lunchtime though, so I'm gonna have to work around that.

    I trust you'll find time tomorrow for work, fun and what must be done.

    Have you read MK's reply to fans?

    From Merlin's Keep:

    "Thank you so much for the support, along with everyone else who responded on your blog. It is a relief to know there are fans who support the site and hope it remains/returns asap. It is strange that for four years, BBC never once went after the site, or any for that matter, for copyright infringement or posting photos before embargo date - which, at least none of the photos posted last week were under, except 10 from 5004, and we removed those asap when we learnt that. Yet, still we were than told to remove every other S5 image no matter where they came from since all S5 images, according to BBC, are a strict violation of embargo and copyright and cannot be posted. Funny thing is, those images they demanded removed were not even released by BBC. Sadly, another e-mail from BBC ordered us to remove any other Merlin image too, since they are all under copyright. They say fansites must respect the same laws as real magazines and sites do, well then why is BBC giving SFX, Sunday Times, the supposedly embargoed photos to use? Why can’t those at least be posted if fans find the hires versions? We are getting two different stories from different folks who have contacted the site from BBC PR. And none of it is positive. They contacted another site too. They don’t give permission to fansites to post photos. So, we don’t know what will happen. Agencies, studios, shows tend to always look the other way. BBC isn’t in this case.
    It seems a bit ironic that this all happens, and suddenly Shine launches their own Merlin tumblr announcing a fanart contest. Although Merlin’s Keep isn’t the only place with photos, it is (or was) still a huge source notably for the size ones that are good for that sort of thing (art), so why would BBC and Shine want to take that away from fans? If they are so concerned about copyright infringement, why are they telling fans to make photoshop and poster images that are bound to be made with copyrighted photos?"
    Source.

    *smirks and will keep sarcastic comments to herself*

    Yep, I've got one funeral tomorrow and one next week... That's the fun of being part of a choir where pretty much all members are over 65 years of age (the oldest is nearly 85 I believe)..

    Anyway, I've stopped the work for tonight. I hope to have time to do some knitting as well tomorrow (and then I have another project in mind for a fancy dress party the Pixie is invited to at the end of the month. I might order some wool tomorrow or see if one of my local shops has got what I need...)

    Yeah but that's good that those people keep active, that's something.

    Ooh, can't wait to see what fancy dress you sort for her!

    I'm fine, thanks. I've had a very productive early morning, so I'm having a break at the moment. I've got to get to a funeral at lunchtime, and I'll do a bit more work afterwards.

    Can I get you a cup of tea?
