I woke up late, rushed to take dog for walk before church. Got back just in time to change into a slightly less scruffy shirt, rushed to church. All the worrying that I'd not done the veg (I've invited a neighbour).
Rushed home from church, looked at the tip that is my home, shrugged shoulders. Took dog for a quick pee stop. Came home peeled veg and stuffed it all in my halogen oven. Rummaged in fridge for what's left of sprouts, peeled and shoved them in saucepan. Lit five million candles, in the hope that it might soften the mess!
Please God make this meal edible, and please don't let me poison my guest.
