Retro cod and peas dinner
Honestly, I don't know.
But I think that the winds of change are gathering speed. The looting/ opportunistic thieving young (mostly) adults who engaged in criminal behaviours last week fall into a number of "categories" gangs, dissaffected, marginalised, spoilt, angry, resentful, misled, undisciplined, disillusioned, desparate, greedy, ... .
And I think of myself... educator, loyal, professional, adaptable, willing, cooperative, flexible, intelligent, inspiring (no really, other people have said these things)... and grumpy, busy, form filler (they have said those too) ... educator for me the most important - or rather facilitator of people gaining more knowledge and skills through a supportive (and accredited) framework... and feel the slump in morale around me, and the slump in goals for those we are trying to support and it all seems to get more desparate.
But if you can't work the "recipe" out - boil new potatoes (cut into bite sized piece) for about 20 mins, boil cod and parsley sauce accrding to packet instructions, steam asparagus for about 8 minutes, boil frozen peas for about 4 minutes. Cheered me up somewhat!
