knocked for six...

... and not in a good way.

The death of a beloved uncle of mine is the main reason for not posting recently.

I am still here, though, and I will be back.

Take care of yourselves in the meantime, and keep me amused with your blogs, too.

a poorly computer... and - coming very soon...

Just got the PC back from computer hospital. The bad news was that the RAM had failed which, apparently, is very rare. The good news was that it was fixable, and I didn't lose any data or anything else of any importance. The other not-so-good news is that my bank account is now rather emptier than it was a few days ago.

But I digress...

I owe you a post on THAT veg box and the amazing chicken, another post on Deal, and probably another one just for good measure. Oh, and I can also tell you about an evening spent at that bastion of old-fashioned Englishness, Simpson's in the Strand. And then I've got some more chocolate to tell you about, too.

But first, I have to go to lunch. Second, I have to cook a huge Indian meal for friends tomorrow - sorry, no pics, won't have time. For the interested, my guru for all things Indian is Madhur Jaffrey, and I'll be making her amazing lamb rogan josh, with tarka dal and a mushroom and pea curry. With naans. And some kind of a tart to follow. Of the edible kind.

And then, finally, I might actually get around to writing a post or two.
