Saturday I spent so much on CDs I decided to economise by staying in and eating dim sum ( lovingly handpicked from the Chinese supermarket ) & listening to the aforementioned CDs , (Ry Cooder , Rodrigo Y Gabriela ,Ry Cooder/Manuel Galban & Madredeus since you ask) . and I take that back three things you can never spend to much money on Food , Books , Music ..

Saturday Dim Sum

Sunday morning lying in bed watching Little Miss Sunshine for the third time , It is my feel good film of the decade …. and listening to the Archers omnibus .

I made some brownies for colleague bribery in the week and that was me done ….
