    Good afternoon NSD gang, busy clearing up after the St Patrick's Day bash, everyone looking green in the face either due to dodgy skin-staining beer or to a surfeit of shamrock vol au vents. Never mind, a drop of the Ennessdee Towers medicine will sort it!

    (What, Igor? The medicine? Mrs Doyle's concoction of strong tea blended with turnip whiskey and infused with the scent of anchovy....cures colds, clears out the digestive system....And you can creosote your fence with it. Lovely!)

    Should get a couple of NSDs this weekend as I am on night shifts.

    Should.

    Provided I leave OH a list of jobs to do as long as his arm so he has no time to think about spending money.

    Days number 11 and 12/20 now! And five in a row! Chuffed as a chuffed person!

    Won't make it to 6 in a row though as we're off to Edinburgh tomorrow for some shopping and a hot air balloon flight (if it still goes ahead!)

    Small spendy day today.
    Went to 'St Martin's on the field' in London and heard Faure's Requiem as well as some pieces by Bach and Mozart (First time). Tickets were a good price, much cheaper than theatre tickets. Also visited a real ale pub nearby. An enjoyable.

    Oh you are lucky!
    I love Faures Requiem...I've seen it too in concert. :)

    number 5 NSD is now safely tucked in the Cauldron of Doom.

    Now Igor and Chef are huddled at the kitchen table with loads of cookery books, what are they up to now?

    Really, Mrs Doyle? Instead of buying everyone an Easter egg this year they are going to save money by making them?

    Oh look, they've gone out to the shops to buy ingredients....quick, let's have a look at their notes.....

    I see....they have all our names with a suggestion for an egg beside them....Mrs Doyle, yours is going to be chocolate and Earl Grey.......Fabio is getting caramel and Parmesan flavour.........Hubert is getting a piccalilli and banana frosted chocolate truffle egg......

    Oh gawd! I don't envy marmite - I thought my candied coconut, beetroot and Gorgonzola egg was bad enough......

    What pieces by Mozart?

    Ave Verum Corpus was one of the three pieces by Mozart.
    Favourite Bach piece played was Jesu, joy of man's desiring.

    Will find out tomorrow if hubby still has the programme to remind myself of the other pieces.

    Had a small spendy day today. Bought 2 special birthday cards and treated myself to two DVD's ( reduced and both for the same price as hubby's football ticket).
    Also bought hubby a drink - for being such a extra special wonderful hubby over the past month.
