Come on Ketchup

I have summer malaise. 

I fell behind on everything and had one hell of a job to catch up.

We went and saw another house on Friday.  Wow wee.  They used come creative camera work there.  Absolutely in no way workable.  Reversing out of a driveway on to a AMAZINGLY fast road is not something I would want to do every day.  No way uh huh.

It had all the room we needed from the house but the land and the proximity of the neighbours, who actually waved to us from their kitchen window, whilst I was wandering in the lounge, nope not for me. 

As soon as I saw the drive way, well that was it. 

I normally get a bit shouty at the TV when people on Location, Location, Location don't even want to go in to the house.  That was me.  I didn't even want to get out of the car.  it took us over an hour to get there and by the time I got out I was hopping mad at the estate agent who apparently had looked at our NEED list.  It is now turning into a DEMAND list.

Which bit of I want a piece of land that just happens to have a house on it, do they not get.  They are so desperate to sell that they show you stupid houses.  There have only been 7 houses put on the market in the last 5 months that have the land we want.  I am starting to give up and think I need to go back to asking the neighbour to sell us her house.  the problem is I have convinced myself that we need to move.

First world problems I keep telling myself.  Be more grateful.

What else has happened.  Well the hot weather and the rain have made the garden crazy.

What was with those crazy rain down pours yesterday?  Seriously it made holes in the courgette plants.

What is your news?

Picture from here
Rachel Khoo.  A girl after my own heart with her red lipstick, she actually looks strange to me when she is on the TV and doesn't have any lippy.  And her too DIE for dresses.  If she was my friend I would be jealous of her wardrobe...  Who am I kidding I am jealous right now.  Particularly love the red number above!  Gorgeous. 

Her new TV programme is currently airing on the Good Food channel.  I've just watched her make 'Shepherdless Pie'.  Yum, I could have licked the screen.  I will be making this next week. 

Here is the recipe.  Yum Yum.  A Vegetarian feast.

And I have also learnt the word for myself.  Flexitarian. 

There you go, you learn something every day.
