Check out my stream of consciousness

Check out what I had been busy doing this whole day. It’s Saturday and I invited a party of seven people to have a five-course degustation meal. My day started at 10am and got all the food prepared just in time when Baby Kirsty visited at 4.30pm.  That gave me an hour watching a three-year-old…
