After our afternoon lunch, we were still left with a small casserole dish of chicken curry which will be the launch platform for yet another of my culinary creations. Waste not, want not, could well be today’s motto.
Our guest (and surrogate son) Graham, who was recently transferred to the Midlands branch of his employers, will be staying with us to ‘see the New Year in’ before returning home on Monday. The break will provide an opportunity for him to visit some of his friends in Harrogate. He understands, very well, my sudden energy lapses and, is quite happy to “take us as he finds us”! These days, I find myself quite wary of anyone who lacks this aptitude. It requires so much less effort to be a good host when the guest is reasonably compliant!
