I went to the supermarket to get enough provisions so that I won't starve over the weekend. This is a real worry, as my daughter comes to stay, and she doesn't stop eating. However, she doesn't like anything too spicy, so as long as I have something curried left, I'll probably survive.
I've got plenty of lemonade for her to drink, bread and humous (she takes after her dad there), and I never like to run out of pickeld onions (it annoys her mum when she goes home with the smell of those on her breath).
One of Helena's favourite meals is farfalle pasta with green beans and green pesto. However, it's been (bean?) hit and miss lately whether or not I manage to get any green beans. The shelves are stacked high with sweetcorn, and there's never any shortage of artichoke hearts, but common or garden green beans? I am, of course, talking about the tinned variety. I believe they sell them loose, but I prefer the real thing.
I'm getting really worried about this - I mean, where are all the tins going? My best guess is that Gordon Brown likes them, and that they're stocking up his bunker with them. Which can only mean that something bad is going to happen soon. World War 3? Invasion of the Flashy Light Aliens? Or maybe a General Election? Whatever it is, I think I'll stick to ignoring the news and hope I don't notice.
In the meantime, I've got garden peas in brine to look forward to tomorrow.
