You know when you have a prawn cocktail and it's got that dark sprinkly stuff on it? What's that called, please?

I'm doing prawns with avocado tonight and then a chicken supreme with rice. Yummy!!

I went to Tesco this morning to get all the ingredients and to get the pheasant for tomorrow's dinner, and stopped en route because there was a lady sitting on the ground. She said she'd slipped but was very insistent that she was alright, despite me and a taxi driver who'd also stopped asking her if she needed a hand up, and it was all rather odd to be honest. She was gone by the time I got back, anyway. I was back later than I'd expected due to a bint at the petrol station. There was a bit of a queue and she was in front of me, and there were two cars in front of her, one at each pump. The car at the second pump finished first and pulled away, and she then moved forward slightly but before she could get out, the one at the front pump also finished and pulled away. I expected her to drop forwards so I could get to the second pump, but no - she didn't even realise the other car had gone and she just bumbled around, filling her car up and then going into the kiosk to pay, all the time effectively holding up both pumps. I could have been annoyed but in the end I just laughed at her, as did the bloke in the BMW next to me. I especially laughed when I saw her bumper sticker, which said "Cornwall Cornish". Kind of said it all, really!

I mentioned in my earlier post but mum had a phone call to say that my Auntie Margaret died yesterday. She'd had a stroke eight years ago and had never gone home again, poor thing. I hadn't seen her for a long time as we're not really a close family, but I do have fond memories of her from when I was a child. I hope she's at peace with her Peter now, anyway.

The weather's gone wrong again. We've got sub-zero temperatures forecast over the course of the weekend and sleet is forecast for Monday. Yuck!

And that's me up to date, I think. If I don't get a chance to update again this evening, I hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve and that 2010 brings you all health and happiness.
