Crocuses, Blackbird and Chinese New Year – of the Snake

1  A whole bunch of crocuses have suddenly opened despite the stormy weather.

3   Happy New Year to my Chinese readers!  We always have a Chinese meal to celebrate, often with friends but tonight just the two of us so instead of a banquet, it was a simple Vegetable and Cashew stir-fry. The lovely Mr S inherited these beautiful and very delicate rice bowls from an Aunt and we love to use them. Over the years we have become quite proficient with chopsticks.

For those who asked, yesterday’s concert was brilliant! The audience were kind, we had fun and we raised £600 for The Poly.
