I got this sister to pose for me to show you the potatoes. They are similar to our mashed spuds but with so much milk and butter (margarine actually) - it becomes a runny mess. I had to pulverize the cooked spuds with a pestle because we didn't have the equipment out. What a job - I will have very good muscles I think by the time it's all over!
This photo must have been taken early in the day - cause I'm smiling!
Michele Tries here hand at frying meat!
It's only the 2nd day and I am almost dead - I really don't know how I am going to cope with the next 6 weeks. Mind you - yesterday was the longest day (14 hours) because we had to unpack all the kitchen stuff and make a list of what we had. We were supposed to do that first thing in the morning because it would take us 2 hours - however surprisingly (not) they didn't have the key for the trunk. So we didn't get home till after 8 - but I tell you one thing - we slept like babies!
I am just home on a quick break (it is 2.30 in the afternoon) - I just had to get out of there for some sanity time. The ladies assigned today are real Chatty Cathy's and it does get a bit wearying having to try and keep up with the play. I am due back in half an hour but I might just close my eyes for 10 minutes! Until the next time guys...

Hello Cook! I feel for you - such hard work. Time to delegate a bit more I think! I must say those hats are rather fetching - but I think the idea is to cover ALL the hair! Keep smiling!
