Bones is not a pack horse

I have just been into the dreary spires to do some food shopping for my friends who are visiting this weekend. I spent ages choosing some meat and cheese. I crammed the delicious samples into my rucksack along with my books, wine glasses etc, and started heading back to work. As I got to the lift I really felt for the horses and donkeys of this world. They spend their lives carrying much heavier things - I suppose their ergonomics are better equipped for such activities, and walking on all fours may help, but even so!

Because I am an idiot I forgot to buy vegetables. That is what happens when you get distracted by the cheese counter. I wouldn't have been able to carry them anyway.

maybe the tops of the stinging nettles will do as vegetables, they taste like spinach,might save another donkey voyage.

I am eyeing up the vast quantities of garlic mustard in my garden at the moment, which I'm told makes a palatable sauce (though neither particularly garlicky nor especially mustardy).

Have a lovely weekend!
