OK, so while walking round the supermarket this morning doing my weekly shopping I saw a sign which said "Anitipasti", which made me wonder, is antipasti the opposite of pasti like antimatter is the opposite of matter?

If antipasti and pasti come into contact with each other are both annihilated?

Hello hope everyone is doing well 😊 

I'm OK, if you count being roasted one day and drowned the next thanks to our weird British weather as being OK. 😀

Looks like the weekend is over and a brand new week is upon us.  
I hope you all have a great week! :)

The weekend is not quite over here in the UK, Monday is a Bank Holiday. 😀

So, have you ever started something and then after a short time wished you hadn't?

I have!

This morning I opened one of the kitchen draws and thought "what is all this stuff?", so I promptly started taking everything out. Then I looked at the huge pile of "stuff" on the worktop and thought "why did I do this?".

It took a long time to sort through it all and most of it went in the bin, but it was worth it in the long run as I now have a tidy draw and I know what's in it.

Perhaps I'll do the other draws...

Perhaps.

Oh yes.. I went into the restaurant business. Been wanting to get out of it ever since. 😭

It pays the bills, but it has been a life-consuming venture for the most part. I’m definitely thinking of an exit strategy. Don’t really know what I want to get into after I do leave it though. Not yet anyway. Another tale for another day, perhaps.

Before the dreaded covid19 struck my church ran a community lunch once a week we were a small team and I was one of volunteers in the kitchen. We had around 30 customers each week but because of the way it ran they all came in at the same time and had to be served as quick as possible. With the preparation before serving time and clearing up afterwards we were all shattered when it was all done. And that was only for about half a day so you have my admiration, and sympathy, for doing it all day every day.

hi everyone!  How are we doing today? 

Today I'm a bit sad because the state funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is today. I'll watch the event on TV because I'll see much more of the service and the processions than I would if I went to London or Windsor and I'll also avoid the huge crowds and packed trains.

I started watching the funeral on TV at 10:30am until it finished around 5:00pm.
I'm used to seeing royal and state processions but today's funeral for Queen Elizabeth II was on a scale I had never seen before. There were 4,000 members of the armed services many like the Household Cavalry in their traditional historic uniforms. The Queen's coffin was carried on the state gun-carriage and pulled by 142 sailors. The main procession stretched for a mile and a quarter. The marching bands played a sombre but stirring march which was punctuated by the regular firing of gun salutes in one the parks.
It was certainly a day I'm never going to forget.

While I was out shopping today I looked in the local jeweller's window out of idle curiosity. They had a wristwatch on display with a price tag of £6500, Six Thousand Five Hundred pounds for something to wear on your wrist to tell you the time!!? Some people clearly have more money than sense!!

Actually, I don't think there's anyone in my town wealthy enough to buy it.
