FIlatura di Crosa Cincilla

Sorry I have not written for the last 2 days. I have been busy and felt tired.
The Filatura di Crosa rep came on Friday and I ordered some Superior, Zarina and a new yarn call Cincilla. It is rather like fur and is very soft and knits on big needles.

Last night we went out for a meal at Coho with Steve and Lyn.  I had prawn and crab mousse with a raspberry dressing to start with and mussels in white wine and coconut sauce for the main course.  My only complaint would be that I did not get any bread with the mussels!  Stave had Lobster Bisque to start with and then a steak, John had jumbo prawns to start with and then steak also and Lyn had scallops and bacon to start with and then fillet of sea bass.  All vegetables are extra which I think is a bit of a rip off!!  $5 for a portion of peas?!!!

Today I am cooking a chicken curry from scratch – pounding spices and dicing chillies.  We went blackberry picking this morning and so I am making pancakes stuffed with blackberries and ice cream for pudding.

Jackson is almost back to his old self – being naughty and demanding.  I have discovered what was causing the drool on his face each morning!  I noticed that his face was OK when I took him his breakfast but once he had eaten it , one side of his face and the top of his head were wet.  I feed him in his indoor pen so that Slip does not steal the food.  I fed as normal yesterday morning and left him to it. Then I went back in the room to get John a banana.  There was Slip with her tongue through the mesh of the cage trying to lick Jackson’s breakfast up. Jackson’s face was over the bowl and so her tongue was also licking him – hence the wet face!!  This morning I shut her out whilst he was eating – no wet face!! She is a bad dog!

Now I must dash and make the accompaniments for the curry.  Back tomorrow.

  1. It is sooo funny – now- about Slip drooling over Jackson. It’s not funny the worry it has caused.
    Judging by the size of Slip, she could have drowned poor Jackson!
    No wonder Jackson doesnt like being on his ‘own’!
