RIP My Queen

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Thursday the 8th of September 2022. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth passed away aged 96. My. Queen

I never met this lady, Although I know a few who did, and they all say how nice she was. For a while she was my commander in chief, and I swore to obey her , her heirs and successors.

I remember when her father died back in 1952 I was in infant school and we were all taken into the school dining room to listen to the announcement on the wireless.

I am pleased I lived through her reign and may she Rest in Peace reunited with that politically incorrect old bugger Philip.

Plum picking time

Plum picking time again, The boss makes jam from things, Plum is on my favourite list as it doesnt have pips. I am supposed to avoid pips and seeds.

The lady who used to live nearby always spelt plum "plumb". Her family were plumbers, so it may explain things. A bum of a plum.

Plum bum Bum Plum.

The Bus ride.

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Thursday, Boss wanted to go somewhere nice and not mooch around home all day.

First thought was a train to Skipton or Lancaster. Looked at the train times and remembered there is a strike so limited service.

Ok, what about the bus to somewhere. Options are Ingleton, Kirkby Lonsdale or Lancaster.

Decided we would go to Kirkby and have a wander round. Bus journey was ok, Got to Kirkby close to lunch time. Decided to eat then shop. Walked into Botanica, A lovely restaurant down a ginnel. Decided on "small plates", Dirty fries and Crispy Beef. Dirty Fries. Dirty Fries, with cheese and bacon


Crispy Beef, with chilli and cashews.

Absolutely fantastic meal, Along with lovely staff. I will be going back ! Botanica Kirkby
