I had intended to go to St Nicks today and help with some coppicing, but Gill wasn't feeling too brilliant so I decided to stay closer to home and do some work in the garden, chainsawing and compost bin filling, harvesting artichokes, tidying.
I popped round to the bread shop, and after lunch went into town to put in a cheque and find a 'seasonal gift' for the family.
I came back via Richard at Country Fresh, and made a really good nutloaf, with equal amounts of breadcrumbs and grated parsnip. I also put all the dried red and yellow pepper in the liquidiser goblet and reduced it all to dust, sieved it so that I had a bowl full of sweet pepper paprika. Melody came to pick up her Suma order, so I gave her a jar of the paprika as a seasonal present. She gave us a bag of foraged nuts, some jam and chocolates.
The nutloaf was delicious. I zoomed into town after tea as I wanted to attend the York Green Party AGM at the Guildhall. I enjoyed this. Then I visited Anna as she hires out TENS machines and I borrowed one for Gill. However, I'd asked on Freecycle about one and I had an offer there too.
I enjoyed a science programme quite late into the night, and a nice facebook chat with my friend Lisa. She is fun.
