    You're probably right LB - it could have been Runners.

    A wet 'n' windy "Morning all" today.
    Love the cheeky coffee LB 😉, thought I was seeing things at first.

    Not sure I'd like the curd tart, the thought of the sour milk... green boke face. Eccles cakes, yum 😋.

    Nice crocus pic MU. Some of mine are up but look more like little bullets on skinny stalks, they'll probably all get battered today 😕.
    Lucky you Rebecca, the toadflax looks lovely and cheerful. Purple is my favourite garden colour.
    Threw caution to the wind yesterday and bought a pack of 3 bare root lupins (purple), no doubt the slugs will love them 😩.

    Not sure if it's my tablet or my internet that's dodgy, kept getting "this page is unavailable" yesterday.
    Minor grumble in the grand scheme of things.
    Went and tried to tidy up the growhouse instead. Hole in the roof is getting larger 😬.

    Morning all.
    Liked the winking cuppa LB.  Hope your Bestie if feeling a bit better and up to a good natter.

    Rained during the night but no wind.  Think we may have a wet and windy weekend. A...n has just delivered a new V McDermid book.

    I wonder if you can just do the old trick of adding a little lemon juice to sour the milk. I guess that the recipe evolved - as probably the name curd tart did - by the waste not want not ideas of the time and when the milk separated on souring the curds became useful for baking as well as cheese making.. I do remember my Grandma using sour milk to make scones and they were always delicious.

    Morning Kitty!  Hope the sluggies keep away from your lupins!

    That looks like a lovely old book, Fritillary.  Thanks for sharing 😀

    F'edge, I think it WAS Runners who'd taken up the still practicing, Runners?

    Milk in there's something that should be mandatory these days.  Did you ever manage to 'source' a proper milkman to deliver to you, LB?

    Hello Joyce and Kitty. Kitty I had a bit of that 'page unavailable' stuff late yesterday when I got back from lunch. Just kept trying and eventually got signed in. You and Joyce snuckered in so my last post got a bit out of sequence there. Good job we can all read and understand Rez!

    You can also use cottage cheese if you can’t get curds . Love sour milk scones .

    Yes it was Runners learning the Uke. Not heard her strumming for a while... Maybe Al ate it? 😲
    Batten down the hatches Joyce. That Carol Kirkwood showed a very wild weekend forecast for your area on this mornings Breakfast.

    What a great tip Ruby. I never thought of that but it does make sense. I can feel a home baking bug coming on.
    Hey Joyce  and Kitty - never mind wild up there. Its gale force this side of Manchester. Hope my little car doesn't get blown off track when I head out - which is 5 minutes from now. See you all later.
    Ante - I hope you survived your theatre trip.
