Life has slowed down at work with the new year and I have been very creative recently making short films with the actor Michael Caine as my focus of humour. If you go to Youtube and type in MrFenchyphil you will find them all. They come under the heading of 'Michael Caine's Brief Encounters'. I have filmed nine short films so far, each one different from the other in some quite inventive ways!
Food-wise I haven't been that adventurous lately as my funds are still scarce and I have been the grateful recipient of some lovely food parcels from the Hope Church in Beeston. These are tins and packet items and my thoughts are that they feed me and what I don't spend on food I save money on. I never thought I would be so grateful for a Fray Bentos pie in a tin. Actually it was nice and very easy to warm though in the oven. With the tins of tomatoes I can make up some nice meals with pasta and things from my freezer. I am being very frugal with my spending on meats and fish and veg too but still eating well. Each time eat or drink any of the food items I say a little 'thank you' to the unknown kind people who donated the food to someone struggling like me.
I am still considering what to do with the above item however! The Monty Python Spam song seems to be permanently lodged in my head now! Bloody Vikings!
My hair style (if that's the word) has gone from trampy to shorty all in the name of art in order to get a different look for each of my short films.
Tonight I had the treat of a pork chop with sweet potato mash and green beans and I have raided my freezer to get some frozen lamb's liver out to make a chopped tomatoes and liver stew for my tea tomorrow night.
