Everything & nothing!

Everything & nothing around here. Everything is in full tilt mode for the move to Worthing, the purchase of things for the business & getting the rest of our stuff over from Australia. Looking forward to being one block from this.
Nothing to show on the sewing front, still working on my stripey flannel quilt from fabrics I have had for ever. Photos will come in due course when the light cooperates.

Here is my study buddy trying very hard to get my attention
Here he is watching his favourite TV program. He is a massive David Attenborough fan. I think he recognises the voice LOL
Random fact from my recent food hygiene & safety studies. What causes the most food poisoning per year? RICE!! Yes, rice. Once cooked, make sure it is completely cooled to room temperature before storing in fridge and make sure it is reheated to steaming hot before serving. Apparently there is a bacteria on the outside of the grains that grows exponentially at warm. That's rice off the menu then.

Our street tree in front of the house, nearly naked
Golden carpet starting to go brown.
Off to go and start the boiler again. Looking forward to not having to do that 4 or 5 times a day!!
Loving what I do (even if it IS very stressful at times!!)

  1. What will you be doing in Worthing? Restaurant? B & b

    1. Hi Dianne, I am arranging to buy a coffee cart. Plan to sell at the railway stations & sports fields etc. That is the plan anyway, hopefully will work out. I am doing my all to try. off to the north to buy the van tomorrow. Fingers crossed I can do a great deal.

  2. Oh I knew that about rice being very prone to bacterial growth. That you are never supposed to leave it out. Must be hard in hot Asian countries then!

    1. I know! It answers why you can get a bad tummy after Chinese or Indian food!!

  3. Wow. I had NO idea about how to store and reheat rice. I am about to make some for dinner tonight. This couldn't have come at a better time. And, that picture of your cat watching TV...adorable.

    1. I knew it from chef training back in another lifetime but had pushed it back in the memory banks. Always good to be reminded about this stuff. Diego is adorable, he keeps us very amused & we love him dearly.

Sorry folks but too many spam comments lately so the word verification is going on for a little while. Once I am no longer "BIG" in Russia I will take it off.
