Manchester Bluebells

001 003 011 012 013 019Hello everyone.  Do you like the headline.  It’s often used, especially in the media.  Honestly.  OK, there are many headlines that start with the word ‘Manchester’ and usually followed with something catchy and really upbeat like…united, city…gangs.

Anyway, my point is we have bluebells too.  Having played at the office all day with flowers, I nipped over to the plot.  And played with flowers some more.   I don’t grow a great deal (wondering whether to add the word ‘yet’) ?  But what I do grow is so pretty.  The tulips? From recollection there was definitely an Angelique and possibly a Black Hero, and a mixed bag of super cheap numbers.

And then dinner. Tofu. The word doesn’t really do it for me.  It has connotations of hippy, tasteless mush.  But this was organic smoked tofu, fried with garlic, ginger and chilli. With English asparagus, broccoli, spring onions, cashews, rice noodles, soy, shaohsing and sesame oil. Oh my word it is the best thing I’ve eaten since… Saturday when I ate here.  Eat well, be happy.  Enjoy your week.

P.S  Montenegro to win Eurovision.
