Despite all the political drama, mundane life continues

For yesterday's dinner I cooked everything from scratch. I made cottage pie with peas and carrots followed by Welsh cakes. The only problem is that I had to run an extra load in the dishwasher this morning to deal with all the washing up! Also I can report that I opened the first jar of this year's jostaberry jam and it was very nice. Not quite as tart as last year's and not quite as much flavour. This was either because the fruit was riper when picked or because I couldn't make the jam right away so froze the berries for a while. Anyway, it's still nice jam and a variety you can't buy in the shops.
