Six word Saturday

Which dessert did we each choose?

Chocolate and almond brownie or creme brulé with berry coulis?  Which one do you think Tish would choose?  To protect the innocent I kept my camera in my handbag throughout our meeting, but I really couldn’t resist sharing our dessert.

I had expected to be nervous meeting Tish Farrell, but somehow there wasn’t time for nerves.  Before I knew it I’d scurried down the steps and into her arms.  She and husband Graham had kindly suggested picking us up from our apartment to go out for supper and, after a full-on day, we were almost in danger of being late!

Many of you will know Tish from her writings “on the Edge”.  Wenlock Edge, in lovely Shropshire, to be precise, where she tends her garden and allotment with huge enthusiasm, in the minutes purloined from writing.  With gently self deprecating humour, she shares a slice of her life and a little Monday Magic.  Her skill as a raconteur and respect for our world combine in the telling of The Mysterious Stiperstones.  But when Tish writes about her time spent in Africa the whole page lights up- The Way We Were~More from the Kenya Diary.  It’s a passion shared with her husband.

Because we were a foursome talk was mostly of Much Wenlock and its beautiful surrounds.  Tales of village life were delivered with a twinkle of fun. Conversation was easy.  The food was good.  Graham became an honorary blogger for a little while, and we were enveloped in the warmth of good companionship.  They would make lovely neighbours, and I found the perfect timbered cottage nearby.

Did you guess which sweet Tish had?  I forgot to tell you that we were in The Green Dragon, in Little Stretton, and very nice it was too.  Debbie’s a little short on words for Six Word Saturday this week.  I must have borrowed them!


      1. Extremely busy with our business, translation projects, travel to a new house sit… I even skipped a week blogging. That hasn’t happened since I started Roaming About almost two years ago. 😦 Hopefully, we can get back on a feasible schedule soon…


  1. One of the things I bake most often are brownies and I think mine are lush, but I’d still choose them over brulee. You would probably have eaten just a small piece of either. I’d be nervous meeting Tish, I see her as a very lovely but quite formidable lady!
    Monday hugs darling 🙂


  2. A lovely encounter between two great women (and two equally great spouses!!) and a lovely encounter between tastebuds and desserts. Will you have a dessert-reveal, or just leave us guessing??


    1. I was waiting for you Australian stragglers to catch up before the grand reveal. Tee hee 🙂 🙂 Feeling mischievous today. I think I might make it part of my next 6WS now I come to think of it. What’s a few more words between friends? What’s your guess? And how are you? Hugs from a less hobbling person with a near normal pair of hands 🙂


      1. Australian stragglers? Blame the government. Reception at J’s this weekend was particularly abominable, and besides I was going to 80th birthday lunches and walking along beaches and raking up leaves. Chocolate for you. And I’m so glad you are less hobbling. I like mischievous. Sending you hugs wrapped in glorious sunshine, despite the insults.


  3. I wouldn’t mind either, but often I find chocolate too rich. Depends on what I ate first really. Glad you had a good meet-up with Tish and he who builds sheds out of pallets…. 😉


  4. How wonderful you were able to hook up with Tish – I always enjoy her blog as well as yours Jo. I’ve now met 2 faraway bloggers when I’ve been traveling and both times were truly terrific. It’s a great way to meet people don’t u think? And PS, photos are great – I’d love either one!
