    Ain't that the truth, Dave! No staying power... But particularly they're usually too selfish, so don't get the concept of 'give and take'/compromise, and just cry 'divorce' as soon as the going gets tough or they don't get their own way. Plus, I've been brought up in a family with numerous successful, long-term marriages, so for me it's the norm

    Hope your good lady and you have a nice 50th, and I wish you long and happy/healthy life together, and so many more anniversaries!

    Marco.

    Nope - over here this year and my sister is hosting so, whilst I will of course volunteer to peel spuds and the like, I'm going to be relaxing for a change! I have been put in charge of cocktails, however, which I I will take very seriously...

    We're hosting for New Year, however - two other couples are coming to us from Saturday 28th until Wednesday 1st, which will be a right laugh. There will be walking, golfing, a cinema trip, at least two cocktail bars, three meals out and a day in a local hotel's spa for massages!

    Good stuff, so no being bored rigid then in rural Ireland this time! Personally though, I'd love that, and wouldn't be bored...

    Sounds like a fab time ahead though, so enjoy - and make sure that the Negronis are perfect!

    Some pre cooking today. A pack of stewed shoulder and onion in beef stock, and lean beef steak mince and onion in red wine stock.
    Probably freeze one. Both will need thickened tho

    That looks good. Could do with some peas or a couple of brussels, though.

    A late breakfast we had in a local garden centre today before getting a few last bits of shopping (including 10 cds for a 1 in the charity shop!).

    Not bad for 6.99 including a proper coffee or pot of tea

    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.
