Well all in all that was a pretty good day. The Witch of Pinkness came over. She cooked, even though my cooker decided to fry it's element just after the pastry parcels were ready to go in.

We watched all the episodes of The Lost Room back to back. I want more! How did it happen in the first place?

The Witch has flown home now leaving me kicking the oven to try and get a part number off the burnt-out element. Broke 2 tiles sliding the cooker back into place (GRRRRR!)... Seems my cooker is a bit of a mystery to the spares websites apart form the one that has the element listed for for £40 RIP-OFF!. I was figuring no more than £20 and that's is a tad on the expensive side.

In the end... Good old ebay to the rescue (after a little lateral thinking on the search parameters) £5.99, now that's more like it.

I've been coughing most of the day. But I do feel I may be over the worst of it.

It was good to see you for the first time in weeks, I bet you had forgotten what I looked like! Thank goodness I had already cooked the better part of the food or else it would have been a take away again! So you get your asparagus parcels next weekend when you come over! Never cooked puff pastry from frozen, I reckon I have to let them thaw first.
The "Lost Room" was like most American serials, they start really well with good ideas etc, but then the money runs out and they have to finish them quick and nothing is resolved properly and it always leaves you feeling cheated or, worse still, it just gets milked for further series that, like "Heroes" gets silly. That should have ended with the first or second series. I gave up on it ages ago.
That said, I hope that "Lost" doesn't go that way.
You didn't cough as much as you have been and you were awake for 14 hours so that is a real improvement.
Let me do the tiles I can get them out without breaking more, I have done it twice in my kitchen. Just find the tiles and a couple of chisels and a size 14 masonary drill.
I don't like the fact that I can't drink when I come over to yours as I have to drive home. Get that bed built!!!! ;-)
