Sunday 22nd March 2020
Spent much of the day out in the garden, inventing new games to play with Erika.
London March 2020
Mother's Day card and some flowers from the garden for Chie.
I finally discovered where the washing line was meant to hook onto! So took advantage of that and the spring sunshine today to do a bumper load of laundry.
Erika, playing one of the new games we invented - blind fishing. You have to close your eyes and catch as many balls / frogs as you can from the paddling pool with a fishing net.
Erika was suspiciously good at it.
Moudly cork. Apparently doesn't affect the wine inside if its only external!
I thought it best to sabrage it to be on the safe side though.
I had been saving the Dermot Sugrue Brendan o' Regan for a Sugrue themed tasting session with friends, but who knows when that might be able to happen now? So I thought I'd just drink the bloody thing.
It was delicious - lots of notes of Japanese food interestingly, from bitter citrus (yuzu?) to seaweed like umami on the palate.
