            Smoking session today.

            Fishmonger managed to get some haddock in specially for me, they're a tad smaller than the usual fish, but can't complain.

            Mentioned to some neighbours who are from Blighty that he'd got some in and they bought up the rest of his stock. They've just dropped it off.

            Just salted the haddock, need to let it cure for an hour or so and then dry to form a pellicule. Then I can smoke it

            In the meantime smoking some cheese (leerdammer and oude meijse), beetroot, aubergine and almonds.

                  Smalls out of the TD and airing upstairs.

                  Shirts out of the WM and into the TD.

                  Cottons into the WM.

                  Off out for a walk since it's sunny.

                  <hiatus for the usual walk>

                  Shirts out of the TD if only to stop the fecker beeping incessantly.

                  Shirts ironed roughly.

                  Shirts now airing upstairs.

                  Lunch: poached tomato and scrambled egg on Morrisons wholemeal sunflower and spelt toast (crust), red corner yog, 0.91 pints of good Glengettie tea.

                  During said walk it was noted that it attempted to put me off by spotting with rain, but I ignored it and it went away.

                  The small river of water descending the hill has gone away since the culvert can cope with the normal level of runoff from the fields.

                  The swarm of bees has been removed from the tree, presumably by the beekeeper.

                  The leat from the res is much calmer today and is no longer overtopping its banks.

                  And finally: the kids are back in skool on Monday.

                      Was going to make fish pie for tea today but think it will wait until Sunday. If I smoke the haddock today it needs a day or two for the flavour to settle.
