There is a new David Attenborough programme at 6.30pm about the world’s largest dinosaur, who has just been discovered. So this is just a quick blog to let you know that:
1. The Princeton cocktail, comprising gin, port, angostura bitters and an orange slice, is well worth a try. Look:
Was a bit distracted whilst making it and ended up putting wine into the gin, then realising my mistake and adding port. So it’s not perfect. It’s meant to be 2 ounces of gin and 3/4 ounce of port. In fact the gin and port are mixed with wine.
It still looks and tastes wonderful and is a stunning ruby port colour. The dinosaurs like it, as you can see.
2. A bit of the scar on my right side may be infected. Fingers crossed that it isn’t.
3. Have been out with Mum and have purchased bright-coloured Spring clothes.
“It’s good to see some colours,” I say to Mum as we wander around John Lewis, looking for a coral top to match my new striped cardigan.
“Yes, I love that green,” Mum says, pointing at a bright green sweater.
Find the coral vest top, so can now wear my new cardigan. The other stripes are gold, lime green, turquoise and pale orange.
4. The new giant dinosaur is a huge sauropod. They call it a titanosaur. The fluffy monster is not amused and is sleeping through the programme:
We can see fossilised baby titanosaur skin for the first time, as it’s very dry in Patagonia. The babies are tiny compared with the four-times-longer-than-a-London-bus parent. The babies are smaller than a domestic cat.
5. “Good work,” my new spin instructor says to me today, for the First Time! So that’s good. Am improving, getting the hang of it and so on. Here I am this morning:
The attached photo is the world’s most amazing fluffy monster earlier today.
Happy Sunday everyone!
