Jam Today


Mrs Tootlepedal noticed this wonderful sunset from last night and I rushed out to capture it if I could.

She has spent most of the day decorating and it bids to be a pretty successful outcome if early impressions are to be trusted.

There will have to be a lot of bookcase and side board shifting though before the whole task is completed.

Because of conflicting medical appointments, Dennis and I did our morning run at different times and different ways round though we did stop to chat just as I was ending and he was beginning the ride.


I picked the few blackcurrants kindly left by the blackbirds and managed to squeeze four pots of jam out of them. Had I left it another day there would have been no jam tomorrow.


Still, four pots is better than none and we still have quite a few from last year’s bumper crop so ‘musn’t grumble’ is the watchword.

  1. You are SO energetic, it makes me tired to read your blog! The jam sounds delicious, I wish I could taste it. What was your medical appointment? Routine I hope.

  2. I forgot to say that the sunset looked spectacular, well done for taking such a good photograph.

  3. Fantastic sunset – well done for capturing it. The weather man said there was going to be a wonderful sunset the other day, so I rushed off to Primrose Hill – nix! there was a strip of grey cloud covering the horizon. However, I bumped into an old friend of mine enjoying a meal at the Russian Cafe, and downed a cappucino before attempting the Primrose Hill climb!
