I've never really suffered from it in my lifetime, but since lockdown, I've developed a horrible cycle of just not being able to sleep. I have tried going to bed early and not being able to drift off until silly o'clock then waking up at 4/5 o'clock and not being able to get back to sleep. Cut out caffeine during the afternoons, no booze, walking every day, no stodge yet feel like a zombie most of the day, but bedtime I can't switch off.
Some of us will be going out to get food for ourselves and for others so I thought I would start a thread so that we can share ideas to use up what we may have in our cupboards.
Here is a simple bread and butter pudding. Comforting and very sweet.
- Grease a baking tray with butter. - Slice up enough bread to cover the bottom of the tray so they overlap. - Butter the bread and place in the tray - Whisk together 3 eggs and once mixed well add 1 mug of milk and whisk until foamy - Pour the mixture over the bread in the tray, press down slightly to absorb the liquid and leave for about an hour - Preheat an oven to around gas 5 - Sprinkle some sugar over the bread in the tray, add raisins too if you wish - Place in oven and cook until the custard has set
If you can get those small brioche loaves in Tesco then get one as it is a game-changer for this recipe
Gamlins in Cardiff is closing down. There will now be only one major music store in the city (Professional Music Tech) as Cranes are long gone from Cardiff and Swansea. Sad state of affairs where in the two biggest cities of Wales there is only one big music shop between the 2.
What 10 albums or singles would you hope to be stuck with until you got rescued?
In no order of preference:
Grand Prix - Teenage Fanclub Ege Bamyasi - Can #1 Record - Big Star Figure 8 - Elliott Smith Peng! Stereolab After the goldrush - Neil Young Sumday - Grandaddy Illinois - Sufjan Stevens Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin Finger Style Guitar - Chet Atkins
I could go on but this is what I salvaged from the shipwreck.
He is now desperately trying to justify his actions. Bottom line, he knew she was a climate protester, he was angry that she was 'spoiling' his wealthy, privileged meal and he took action wholly expected from a bully boy misogynist. They all try to say sorry after the violence.
Would he have slammed a well built male and grabbed him by the throat? I think not. The man is a coward. If you or I was seen by a police officer doing this we’d be arrested. The same should apply here regardless if you support the protest or not, it does not give him the freedom to physically assault people.
Smith,who lived alone, said he did not know where to turn as his health deteriorated. “I could only make it to the kitchen to make food once a day. I had no muscles in the back of my leg, which meant I couldn’t stand up at all, , but they were telling me I was fit for work.”RIP😢 pic.twitter.com/r3O1nyfXhA
