Tales from a Fractured Folly: 28th May 2017

It was warm again today and I had a quiet morning pottering in the garden, with the cats in attendance. After lunch I got ready to visit friends and this stupendous dish was my desert (there was chocolate mousse under the cream, and yes the strawberries were chocolate dipped). And this was after an array of tastiness for our main course. I ate too much, and enjoyed every minute.

Tales from a Fractured Folly: 27th May 2017

I had a lovely day at Prescott Hill Climb with friends. We had hoped it would brighten up as they day wore on but it stayed gloomy and cold all day, which was a great shame as it is a lovely place. But we had a good time wandering around and watching, hearing and smelling the cars as they screamed up the windy hill. It was advertised as a celebration of French and Italian cars and they were a great many of them, oldand new.But there were plenty of others too and we spent some time on the hill enjoying their company.

Tales from a Fractured Folly: 26th May 2017

This spell of lovely weather has brought my summer flowers on a treat. I get a huge amount of pleasure from these pots and they make the Folly look cheerful and loved, which it is. This old house is my friend and always has been. It’s a feeling I have never had in any house before, ever. Worth knew and understood what I meant and knew how it made you feel safe and protected.

Tales from a Fractured Folly: 23rd May 2017

This was the wonderful view as we climbed out of the Elan Valley today. I had a great day out with Andy driving round the dams, taking pictures and honing my driving skills. It started off a bit gloomy and even rained a bit, but the cloud eventually lifted and the sun shone. We stopped at Rhayader for a late lunch and then I had a great drive home through some stunning Herefordshire countryside. Now I’m pooped.

Tales from a Fractured Folly: 22nd May 2017

There is a reason for such a huge amount of cat food. If you have recently watched “Trust me I’m a vet” you might remember they said to much fish in your cat’s diet might lead to kidney damage in later life. “Ah-ha” you say, ” I do not give my cat fish often”. But the point they were making was that a lot of food, whatever flavour, has fish added if you look. So I looked and the Felix, which is not cheap, all has “fish and fish derivatives” added and that is what my two love and eat day after day. The two on the right have no fish added, although Gourmet  delicate meats duo does have fish. So less Felix  for my two and more looking at boxes before I buy.
