|Ready to tackle the crab|
Saturday we again walked Angus in the woods, we all appreciate the cover, before going to a Saturday market in Arbroath. I couldn’t even summon up the energy to roast the chicken we had, and planned on grabbing a pizza, so how did I get talked into buying a crab? Boiled but not dressed. It only took me an hour of cracking, prodding and poking to extract all the meat! It was worth it though, you get twice as much white meat when you do it yourself, but did make our chilli crab linguine a little more labour intensive than when I just used to buy a dressed crab from the fish market!

We collected my bike from the ‘doctors’ on Saturday too, after B had persuaded him to have another look at the back brake, so Sunday I was persuaded into “a little test ride” 10 minutes I said, we were out two plus hours..... at least it was all pretty flat. We had made it along the disused railway line and through the park and were just looking at the phone to work our way through the streets when a man on a bike shouted if we were ok? I said yes, just not sure quite where we were, and he stopped saying I never cycle past cyclists, even if they say they are ok.

Hector has been on really good form, even running down the stairs when we got back one day, to pin me to the floor lying on my chest and purring. Just as well it was before Angus got back from Doggy Daycare as this is just what ‘Mr. Jealous dog’ is afraid of when a cat comes too close! He would love to know he’d been right all along, those pesky cats just can’t be trusted!
Oscar also has been at the top of his game, not interested in B or a sachet first thing one morning, he was much more interested in what was behind the wicker basket in the hall, so after evicting him I rescued the baby bunny which seemed completely unharmed and put it under the hedge!
