So, who wants to help ... to rattle on in the cellar?

Right folks

Betty’s in Ilkley is all right. In Harrogate they’re a bit too popular and they know they don’t have to try.

Lookin’ gorgeous, Twellsy.

Bettys didn’t have to try, with me. I was seduced by the place. The contrast between the tea room and the ‘event’ I was being forced to endure was very marked. A couple of years older (and wiser, maybe) saw me attending a conference at Clatterbridge Hospital. After day one, me mate and I decided to bunk off, and spent the day in Chester. Luvverly.

Izz there anything in my armoury that could assuage the grottiness, Carinthia?

I have made a shambolic attempt at deep-fried ‘onion petals’, this evening. Forra start I failed, when cutting them into ‘bird’s wing type items’. So, I pressed on with the separate petals. My batter was tasty (very - go me) but didn’t coat the petals properly and I think that I chose the wrong flour. Gus will probably tell me that’s no wonder (as I used potato starch), but I’d really like to know how to make these to serve to visitors.

Sounds interesting, Soo

I am due to have a blood test this week - I feel that there may be a flare-up coming on, but all will be revealed, no doubt

The Gusly One is indeed our resident expert on flour

I really don’t want you to have a flare-up, Carinthia. The Pernod remains unbroached, so you’d be welcome to the first ovvit, should you be willing to share afterwards?

But, now, I must lie down as I have the dreaded headache. Tomorrow is another day, as they say, and I look forward to it.

Of course, Soo

Medicinal Gin ?

Aroint thee, Carinthial flare-up!

(Well, it works on witches. So I’m told.)

Survived the Finn. Orf to me nest.
