Right, I'm off on a bike on the hunt for more filberts...
It has been a nice sunny day here. I have been outside most of today sawing and sanding . I have finished the shaping of the sword blades and have started to try to make the hilt / hand guard out of aluminium.
Sitting on an over-crowded Pacer train. Reading to Dorking. Hoping the view after Guildford will make up for it. Same drycleaning fluid smell and noise like the diesel engine is having to work too hard. Oh and the sun is in my eyes.
Semi-successful filbert hunting. Favourite spot yielded another pannier full, but two other places that have been fruitful in the past didn't turn up much. But at least I spent an afternoon riding a bike in the lovely summer sunshine.
And I will have a goodly supply of nuts for Christmas - once they've been dried, shelled and roasted.
Soon it's walnut season, and I know a few spots in the hedgerows...
Lovely supper here tonight too...
Salmon in-a-parcel (with parsley, lemon and pepper), bulgur wheat with herbs and lemon, plus steamed cauliflower and broccoli with a creme fraiche and mint dressing.
And Domnach na bhFraochóg! Billberry Sunday
I had to look that up. But yeah.
Not uncommon to be the only vehicle, bicycle, moving on the old bog road while that's going on.
People around here seem pretty ignorant of what can be found in the hedgerows other than the obvious i.e. blackberries and sloes. The latter particularly, what with the trend for gin.
As for me, I'm not going to pass up on something good to eat that only costs me time and a bit of cycling.
Two ahead of you.
I wasn't aware this was a competition...
Half way through a triple pack of Jaffa Cakes as well.
Had a snaccident, @classic33?
Not yet, these were picked up. Now they're gone.
