The Beast of the East

Difficult to imagine that this time last week I was tootling around on a Monday morning only to get up on Wednesday to discover snow had not only fallen but had cut off our village.

This was the normally busy road leaving the village and heading towards Loftus.
The large white mound in the distance was a 10 foot snowdrift.

Heading in the opposite direction towards the Moor Road was just as bad.

This milk tanker was blocking the road - left for 3 days. It was only yesterday, Sunday before it was moved. Endless milk had to be destroyed.

Bing enjoyed the walk but we were careful to clean his paws well on return.

Food Stuff!

I love tomatoes - but they have to be REALLY well cooked, I prefer black bits even.
I LOVE avocado and often have them together with my poached egg.

I am cutting dwn on bread and this is an ABSOLUTELY delicious, healthy alternative.
Beat an egg and add to cauliflower rice. Form this patte's and cook in coconut oil until golden brown.

I am working on a healthy corned beef pie!

February - catching up again.

One of the groups who help us out from time to time are Lockwood View
We are pioneering a project with the council which will see felled trees destined for landfill being dropped off in our village. We have wood turners who will either use any pieces and sell on or sell pieces amonst their friends at the Wood turning Club. Any wood left can be chopped up for logs - the agreement is however that no individual can benefit financially - all proceeds are to go to the Village Hall funds.

The group love company so the arrangement is we, the village hall provide lunch and anybody from the village can join the group for a meal - in this case corned beef pie.

On Tuesday the council are sending a team armed with chain saws and log splitters to chop up the wood the team stacked. 

We celebrated Burns Night - we had a teddy specially made for Guess the name - MacTavish!

A good start to the year - 2017 Jaunuary coffee morning made £126 - 2018 we made £270
Burns Night 2017 we made £130 - 2018 we made £240 so we are all ready £500 on route.

February is q quiet month so the decorator can get on with the hall refurbishment and the new carpets can happen.
