Ooooh, what a lovely treat!  Thank you.

I love wandering around fairs.  I have a weakness for bric a brac stalls
and anything with interesting ingredients.  (I have a weakness for
new/unusual spices and I try to cook with them too.) I would buy far too
many things - that float chair will come in handy for both my sore feet and

I had a fairly normal work day with the addition of a very nice coffee, rum
and pecan cake, then was taken out to dinner at a favourite local
restaurant - an excellent Korean BBQ place.

Had calls with family this morning as a 12 hour time difference can make
talking challenging and my parents were worn out by my 5 year old nephew
staying with them in the school holidays.   Lots of books, including the
new edition of Ottolenghi's *Jerusalem, Illuminae* by Amie Kaufman and Jay
Kristoff, plus *Of Mice and Magic* by Ursula Vernon (the second Hamster
Princess book).

I have CDO.  It's like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, only in alphabetical
order as it should be.

Prayer, he suspected as he hoisted himself up and turned for the door, was
putting one foot in front of the other.  Moving all the same.
