PEACHY SUNLIGHT bathes the streets in honey-scented pools and butterflies and bees bumble in the blossom-scented shade ... yes, it's the end of another global-warming "broiling" London day ... (Though I might add, we do not use the word "broiling" for cooking, as in slapping meat on wires and heating from above until the drizzling rain of pigfat catches light and the smoke alarm goes crazy (well it does in Mother Hubbard's house bc the landlord installed mains-powered industrial "aeroplane toilet standard" alarms all throughout her flat. Flaming pigfat aside; just lighting a Benson and Hedges lets off the alarm in her house.) We call that method of cookery "grilling" and that's what the sun did to London town today.) Grilled us all so thoroughly that by tomorrow the cheery Cockneys will be bikini-striped and burnt like crispy lobsters. Awww! London in the sun! Doncha just love it??!

A big GET WELL SOON to Raymi the Minx's Dad who is in hospital. She hasn't posted since Thursday and nothing but serious illness or worse would ever get between Raymi and her mega-blog.
I send you all my love ...
I must go now and fry my vulgarity burgers. Wondering why they're called that? Well at 5.8% beef -- what else could they be called. Oh! I made a mistake -- they're actually (according to the label) 58% beef. So how does that account for one burger plus one blob of marge in a pan = about 300 mls of liquid pigfat afterwards ..?
Well that's one of life's great conundrums. Or conundra. If you want to be Greko-latinickally etymological about it ...
