Silverdrop is in the US for the next three weeks – her annual trip to see her family. She has to be able to lay down when flying, and we can’t afford 2 tickets at more than US $ 3k each.
We miss each other like crazy of course. But the other side of the coin is that it is also a three week holiday for me. Caring for somebody is hard work, and its nice to be able to chill. Does that make sense?
Anyway, I use various tactics to distract myself from the fact that she is not here for us to be sinful together. Here is day 1:-
- Set bread maker to produce a loaf of crusty white bread an hour before estimated wake up time (it’s harder to slice when fresh out of the tin).
- Cut two slices thickly.
- Toast until screaming hot.
- Add butter to taste.
- Apply a good, slightly bitter, orange marmalde. I am using a tart Seville orange one here.
- Return to end of step 5 before you’ve eaten it all and cannot get a piccie.
