AFTER breakfast I cut a few chunks of pork off the pork butt that’s been defrosting.

I stick ’em in the fridge for to night’s carnitas then put a rub on the pork butt ready for the smoker tomorrow (Sunday).

It’s a bit of a scuzzy day and I fancied a bike ride. Ilm going out on the bikes with Martyn tomorrow, so I decide on a walk. Margaret drives round the locations of the local noticeboards and I put up posters for the forthcoming community trust AGM…she drives home and I walk.

Seven o’clock comes and I’ve had no calls/contact from UPS. Fucking surprise. That’s four broken arrangements now – and nearly a week since I booked the collection.

I crack open a beer, make the carnitas and we have a chilled night.
