13th June 2008

Ok - so now it's evening, and half an hour from my bedtime. Well, actually, I'm bored, so perhaps I'll go to bed early. I'm flying to England tomorrow, for a week, and I can't seem to settle to do anything this evening. I've been out for fish'n'chips because I can't be bothered to cook; I've planted some of my shrubs that were in pots because no-one will be here to water them if the weather is hot; I've tried to shut the shutters on the end room to save me doing it tomorrow, but the lintel seems to have dropped and they won't shut (better get that seen to when I get back); I've done my packing even thought the plane doesn't leave until 1.30 pm - SO WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW???????????????????

Maybe the sloe gin? Just a touch....

It's so pretty, and it tastes like an old cough mixture my mum used to give me - Zephrol. Anyone remember that? Apparently it contained pseudoephedrine,which may be used illegally to manufacture methamphetamine which is "a highly addictive, powerful stimulant that has potentially harmful effects on the central nervous system. Street names include crystal meth, crystal, ice, burn, pure, p, tina, crank, yaba and meth".

Anyway, I was sad when it vanished from the shops, although I was in my thirties at the time....

However, my sloe gin - made for the first time this year, from French sloes and the cheapest gin available in Netto, is reassuringly like Zephrol. I haven't got a cough, but I reckon if I just take a thimbleful each day - it'll scare any wannabe coughs away...

























They are really small glasses honest...
