Pepper being twice as nice.
This book is Called The Leisure Hour
and dates from 1890.
The glasses are from Specsavers
and aren't quite as old...
A Taste of Italy...
My favourite, linguine with pesto, NOMMMMMM!
There were also black olives in there (I love olives)
but they didn't last long enough for me to get a photo of them.
Reminders... I did two for this one as I couldn't
get my head around 'Fill in the Blanks'!
It's hard to go anywhere in England without seeing
reminders of the past. This is a detail from Lichfield Cathedral.
which has been a place of Christian worship for over 1300 years.
...and this is Kenilworth Castle.
First begun in the 1120s, it was here that
Henry V received the insulting 'gift' of tennis balls
from the French that sparked off Agincourt.
It also belonged to Robert Earl of Dudley, Elizabeth I's favourite,
and was later made famous in Sir Walter Scott's Kenilworth.
And yes, both places are not that far from where I live :O)
