Of course that isn't my reason for being at home a lot this week (as far as I know there have been no instances of the virus in Suffolk........... yet) - it was more to do with the weather, lots of gloomy days and Thursday was just horrible.
Sunday was mostly OK and I got the raspberry/ gooseberry/asparagus bed weeded and another started then Wednesday was fine and I could have got outside to get the weeding finished but it was the day after having to wear a 24 hour blood pressure monitor - which means waking up every hour during the night when the darn thing bleeps and pumps itself up, so I didn't have the energy to do much at all.
This week I had my second 'harvest' from the garden.......... chives, chopped into scrambled egg, not quite as exciting as the rhubarb the week before. I've now had a second lot of rhubarb and moved the old dustbin onto another clump.
I decided not to spend the next few winters worrying about how much rain we have and whether I'll have problems with the septic tank pits not draining properly and hardly daring to put any water down the drains, so called up one of the companies who do replacement sewer systems. I want to get a quote from another company too. It will be a big expense (as in £1,000s) but better to get it sorted and all legal for when it's time for selling.
I didn't need a big shopping trip this week so just popped to my nearest Co-op which is 4 miles away and picked up some fruit. Then I saw this in the fridge reduced price shelf and thought a Green Cheese must be worth a try. It's very tasty - what they call punchy I think.
Since I got it I've been trying to dredge from my memory a children's song about the man in the moon and green cheese - but can't remember what it was.
Many thanks for all the comments yesterday.
