A day of food

Got up early this morning.  The valley and hillsides were wreathed in a heavy morning mist.  Went out to pick blackberries.  We’re more-or-less into peak season for them now, and I didn’t have to go far to get a good pick.  Going out so early (unusual for me), I was in competition not only with insects, but quite a lot of snails that seem to like them.

Late morning was the first tasting, as I went to the cheese fair, an event organised by our superb local cheese shop and featuring a lot of their suppliers.  This year some wine, beer and cider producers were also exhibiting.  Combine that with the hot summer weather we’ve had so little of this year, and I should just about be ready to zonk out for the afternoon.

But there’s more.  This evening it’s a meal for Alan’s birthday, at the Royal Inn, one of our best local pubs.  *burp*
