2020-05-29 We walk in Flatts Lane Country Park – Its red hot!

After a Bran Flakes breakfast, using the pineapple rings from yesterday’s Gammon, we though about where to walk.  It was red hot, so we wanted to walk out of the sun if possible.  Our friend Dave Robinson had told us that the council had unblocked Flatts Lane Country Park entrance (its just up the road from where he lives) so we drove there and took a climbing walk up and round to the right, coming back down near the Visitors Centre (still closed, obviously).





When we got home, the postie had dropped off our second charge card for our upcoming Renault Zoe electric car.

For lunch I made soup and sandwiches with out favourite combination Heinz Minestrone and Heinz Vegetable.  Christine cut some gammon for the sandwiches.

For our afternoon snack with tea and coffee, Christine made a home made piping bag after the last one had holes in it.  She whisked some Elmlea Double Light Cream with our electric whisk after last time’s fork / manual whisk faillure.  It looked very attractive and finished off the Banana Loaf Cake Christine had made.

Watching the UK Government’s Coronavirus Daily Bulletin, from next Monday they will allow groups of 6 to meet in gardens as long as they keep social distancing between households.  Unfortunately our family (Christine and I) and Mel’s Family (her, Geoff and 3 kids) exceeds the 6, so I doesn’t help us.  Other parts of the UK are allowing 8 people.

Christine prepared a gammon based salad for dinner.
