Yesterday saw red sky in the morning, and in keeping with the old proverb the weather for much of the day was decidedly unpleasant, before it finally picked up in the evening. Also to heighten the contrast, the river was at low tide in the morning and high in the evening.
The Chinese food came about because I had some bacon left for last night’s supper, and also more Chinese leaf lettuce than I could eat at lunch time, so with the additional purchases of chestnuts and soy sauce I made my own version of a bacon and Chinese leaf dish that has been a family favourite for some years.
Last night saw week 2 of Strictly Come Dancing (available on iplayer from just after 9PM). The standard was astonishing – two couples scored 35 out of 40, and the Frankie Bridge – Kevin Clifton pairing achieved a second straight 30.
Enjoy a fine selection of pictures…
