one of the few dry days this month!

It’s been a month of wet – ferocious downpours and foggy days with sea frets that hang in the air. Occasionally there has been some dry sunny winter days sharing wonderful sunsets with us. Our neighbours, the sheep, have been in the field through all weathers and will soon be lambing. To bring a little sunshine into the dark month I made some marmalade, I can’t remember where I first came across the recipe but instead of spending hours slicing the rind into slithers I boil the fruit and then stick it into a processor. The resulting gloop gets added to sugar and it becomes liquid gold that cools to a marvellously set marmalade. Pretty much a pound of gloop to a pound of sugar and the juice and zest of a lemon.

Tonight I will not be celebrating Brexit day by ‘Drinking Rum with Expats’ with Sh!t Theatre at the Drum at the Theatre Royal Plymouth. It feels very appropriate.
