Off to the Balgove Farm Shop with Andrew this afternoon, so he could pick up his Christmas meat and I could do a little last-minute shopping. I like their vegetables; today I got a stalk of Brussels sprouts with a good head on top. Looking forward to some Brussels tops with my Christmas lunch.

Was also tempted by their cheese; although their selection is much more limited than Mellis’, the quality is way ahead of supermarkets, and it is hard to pass by without buying something. So now I have some Stilton, and a wedge of Black Bomber cheddar. That will keep me going this week.

The person standing in front of me in the checkout queue spent over £240, which strikes me as quite a lot, even at farm shop prices. Hope they have a good Christmas on that!

Tonight’s treat was the recently released Philadelphia cheese spread with Cadbury’s chocolate. Beth and I rather enjoyed it — it was like spreading chocolate cheesecake on our toast. Kate disliked it for the same reason.

Kate is in Kent, and Beth is in Spain. I’m alone this morning, with just a cooked breakfast, a mug of tea, and the Chinese F1 qualifying to watch.

Andrew is coming around for lunch. I’ve got dough rising at the moment, so we’ll have fresh bread. We’ll be having a ploughman’s; double gloucester is today’s cheese of choice, and beetroot pickle to go with it.

Working from home today, I made myself cheesy pasta for lunch. I mean, is there really a better lunch than cheesy pasta?

In Mellis’s, buying cheese for the party tomorrow and to last us through Christmas. Now on to Minick’s to pick up the goose and the ribs of beef.

Cheese and biscuits for lunch. We appear to have a lot of crackers in at the moment, mostly left over from Xmas I guess, so an effort was made to tackle them. There are fewer now than before lunch, but it won’t be our last cracker-based meal. Port Salut and Double Gloucester were my cheeses of choice today, with some pleasant caramelised onion chutney.

Beth is having fun playing Boom Blox today. She’s played it before, but today was the first time she has tried the ‘create’ mode. A lot of fun being had there.

I’m working today; database fettling this morning, and writing a scope of works this afternoon. It all requires a little too much brain power for a Sunday.

Oh, and I have a few spare Dreamwidth invitation codes if anyone wants one.
