Twas a bit of a grim old winters day today.  We awoke to rain and wind, and later had icy hail and 130km winds.  Ferry boat sailings and flights into our city have all had to be cancelled.  Needless to say that mum and I spent most of the day relaxing with the doors closed.  Mum read her book and watched the tv.

She was most annoyed too, as she watched the final of American Horror and then realised she had two earlier episodes recorded that she had not watched that helped explain the end.  Duh!!!  To make her feel better she made a tasty winters dinner.  Chopped onion, garlic, courgette and bell pepper were tossed in the casserole dish.  Chicken legs and salt and pepper and olive oil added, and cooked for forty minutes.  Then tomato paste and a tin of chopped tomatoes added.  Served with rice, mum said it was one of her tastier dinners, gives lots of leftovers for the next nights dinner and  was very easy to make.  Me - I had a feast and was very happy.

So our heater is roaring, the Antiques Roadshow is on the box.  Mum is going to choose between a rich chocolate or caramel steamed pudding and cream for her pudding.  She has to put the rubbish out and then it will be off to bed for us two girls.

Enjoy your Sunday everybuddy.


  1. ooooO! Mums dinner sounds really nice Poppy..! (Any left)..! :).

    Hottest day of the year, yesterday, over here, and they predict it hotter to-day. Staying very much in the shade....I'm quite tall...6ft 3in. So! I'm closer to the sun than most....HeHe!

    Anyway, you two ladies have a nice warm evening in...! Bless! x

  2. Sounds like spring can't get there soon enough, Poppy!

  3. Yes, dinner sounds yummy and our human figures even she could do something like that.

    Stay snug and warm and dry, you two!

  4. That weather sounds dreadful, Poppy! We hope you and Mum stay warm and dry.

  5. We want your cool, rainy weather, your mum's dinner and your lovely pudding. It's been so bloody hot here that it saps any energy you might have. And making any type of heat in the house makes air conditioning costs go up, up, up! You live in a wonderful place Poppy. Wish we were there.

  6. Brrrr! Those are furry bad winds too.

    Mom says your mum's dinner sounds yummy - must keep the recipe for our winter.

    Stay warm and cozy, Poppy & mum!
