Dinner time...

It's Mother's Day tomorrow and this year's is a bit more special than usual seeing as Mum's been staying with Little Sis & family for the last few weeks so I'm looking forward to seeing her again.

Traditionally, I always treat her to Sunday lunch at a place of her choice and as Mother's Day co-incides with her first day back home I asked her where I should book a table. To my surprise, she asked for a repeat run of Christmas and for me to prepare a Sunday dinner at home so, my place it is.

Over the last few weeks I've been experimenting with a variety of dishes but I finally resorted to a traditional roast beef with the usual trimmings. So far, so good - the beef is cooked, carved and ready to serve tomorrow leaving the morning free to catch up on events of the last few weeks.

The only problem is that having been pottering around in the kitchen for most of the afternoon,when it came preparing something to eat for myself, I really couldn't be bothered. Meat feast pizza and garlic bread supreme it is then...

Cheers Wayne - will do.

By the way, don't be concerned - just because I didn't make it to the Tap today doesn't mean it's been alcohol free!

I've really missed mother too but then I've missed everybody these last few weeks. Looking forward to a big reunion/retox on Friday. Should be a cheap night since I haven't had a drink for weeks. Weekends just aren't the same without drunken Abba sing-alongs.

Hope lunch went well.

I'm being really cheeky now. I know we've only just met and everything, and I don't mean to be forward, but could you perhaps drop into mine for a minute or so. I could really do with your help. It's for a friend, really - honest!
