|Anyone fancy a cooking / hosting dilemma?|
at 13:46 23 Jun 2022
No worries if not, but I now accidently have 7 or 8 good food lovers coming over on Saturday to mine and am stumped on what to provide. The limitations of the brief are:
- My main oven is broken - I only have a crap small low powered top oven
- My table only sits 4, so its eat on laps / buffet style
- I can't really cook
- I'll have to cook as much as poss in advance, as I don't want to be in the kitchen much when they're here.
...So all told, simple is king
I only ask as I know this place is crawling with food lovers and bod what can cook innit.

I just realised that me and mrs Ulla have been together for 30 years. Neither of us noticed and when I told her just now, her response was:
"I don't want to think about it"

|Where do snails hide when its sunny?|
at 10:46 7 Jun 2022
When its raining, they fill my garden so much that on a quiet, windless night, I can hear a mass slither. But today's it sunny and they're nowhere to be seen.... Do they have little snail lodgings with copious water somewhere?

|Arsenal women vs Leyton Orient|
at 11:55 8 May 2022
Saw the arsenal women on weds v spurs, and orient vs tranmere yesterday and it made for an interesting comparison.
I'm no football expert, but arsenal's game was much more fun to watch with umpteen goal attempts, slick passing and general action (even a couple of bustups).
Whereas orient game was much faster, more balls down the wings, but far less goal chances and generally pretty dull.
Maybe I'm coloured by the fact 'my'team won on weds but lost yesterday, but given orient cost me 20 and arsenal, 12, I know which was better value for money.
Pretty similar crowd sizes - arsenal's marginally louder.
I have a feeling orient's men would be more skillfully than arsenal's women if they were allowed to play that way, but it would be great to see the two teams play each just to see what happened.
Sorry if this is dull or lacking insight - just sharing my football 3xpeirences of the week!
Edit: reading this back, I see I forgot to refer to Leyton Orient *men*. Forgive me, I'm old and crap.

Think I've broken my thumb, but not in a big way as I can still move it - just can't pinch and it hurts.
Googled it, and the NHS site says go see a dr, but is it really worth it? I thought you just left digits* to heal naturally and I don;t want to be one of those time-wasters who screw over A& Es....
*Feel free Hoppy!
