Most of my colleagues nicked off early Friday to the GP. So I nicked off early to go pick up the my out of the blue visitor, the excellent Dr N.
Chat, beer, dinner, chat, walk, swing, chat, sleep.

Me to fruit picking day. Dr N off to his own pursuits. Lovely time in t'country with my mates, except for the irate and rude farmer type.

Brought home 7ish kg damsons, 2ish kg mirabelle plums.

Took 4kg damsons to DrQ. Put 1kg damsons into gin (need bigger jar!), 2kg damsons lightly stewed with 200g sugar, mouled and into freezer. The mirabelles are cleaned up, cut a bit and macerating in half their volume sugar, they smell marvellous. Tomorrow I need to proceed with sauce construction.

Dr N returned during mirabelle prep, assisted, washed up, got fed lunch. More chatting, handsewing and work respectively.
Dr N to taxi and airport, gold skirt and I to town and delightful concert- always delighted by the brandenbergs, bonus French countertenor today. Wowee. Two encores. Dodging GP crowds to get home.

Through all that I may have aquired a cold. Noooo. If so, it needs to depart pronto!

and I'm currently in love with this one. The studio version sound is more polished but this is still lovely. (Umm, I have three albums of this guy's work, he's fab).

If anyone told me years ago that I would end up liking at least some banjo music, I would have called them mad.
