It having been cooler and a bit wet the last couple of days, Al had strawberries left over. Too many to throw away really, so I’ve been making jam. Three batches were made and potted this morning and three more are in bowls, covered with sugar, ready for doing tonight or tomorrow afternoon.
The Sage has been calling on friends asking to raid their cupboards for empty jars. The last lot I made, I ended up using glasses, so we’re drinking mostly out of pint pots now.
We’re just off to a 90th birthday party, so I’ll tell you about Don Giovanni later.
Ah, I’ve still got a few minutes.
I went to hear Don Giovanni last night at Snape. Very good. It was a concert performance as there is not room on the stage for a set as well as the orchestra and singers, and no pit, but the splendid singers managed that with aplomb, although it can’t be easy as it meant that they had to stay on stage for the whole 3+ hours. Orchestra great too, very young.
Really must go now, as I need to get petrol on the way.
