It's the end of November, so this will be the last NaNo journal writing for many of us.

It's also St Andrews Day, and so one of the biggest events in the Scottish Dancing calendar. We had our annual Ball last night, which went pretty smoothly. There were about 85 dancers there - a bit down on numbers from the previous year, but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. There was some great dancing to the live band, who were a local group. I wore my fab tartan skirt which I bought at the St Andrews summer school earlier this year, with it's little matching fabric corsage. I wear it with a black top, but I am on the look out for a green velvet or red silk corset/ bodice type to give alternatives.

This morning, the weather was crisp and clear, so we took the dogs over to Mount Stewart, which has some astonishing trees and formal gardens. I made bacon butties when we got home.

Tonight I am doing a slow-roast pork dish, with a Korean barbecue sauce called Bulgogi.

A Happy St Andrews Day to all my readers - thank you for your company during the month, and have a great December.

Bisous

I don't think Robert Burns got as far as saying that. The cholesterol would have got the best of him halfway through. smiley - winkeye

Or not.

Bulgogi sounds delicious, but I don't think I've ever had it. Korean restaurants are rare in my area.

There's one on Prospect St, Cambridge if that's anywhere near you. Or at least there was about a decade ago. The smells coming out of it would drag you into the place. smiley - drool

I think Paul is in the states?

My recipe was a case of: go to tesco. Buy jar of tesco bulgogoi sauce.

It was...alright, but we've made nicer stuff ourselves. The slow roast pork worked well, though.

Okay, it's y'all's fault. smiley - laugh

I found a photo of the hamlet of Pennsylvania, named by Quakers, complete with its only petrol station. I showed the photo to Elektra.

'Where's that?' she asked.

'Pennsylvania,' I said.

'Where in Pennsylvania?' she wanted to know.

'No, no,' I replied. 'Pennsylvania. In South Gloucestershire. It's near Bristol.'

'Bristol's near Philly,' she said. (It is, it's in Bucks County.)

This went on for quite a while...smiley - headhurts
