Miso Tuna with Stir-Fried Vegetables, let there be lights

I may have mentioned that mon mari is not overly fond of fish.

He likes salmon…. Or, at least, he tolerates salmon. He even likes it fixed simply, grilled being preferred, but other methods are acceptable.

Occasionally, I get to do other fish, cod or tuna or sole. As long as there are absolutely no bones and I do something interesting.

He liked this.

Mon mari added lights to the last room.


Now that the ceiling his done he feels safe putting the lights up.


This is the first time they’ve been out of their boxes since we left the Vendée.

We bought them (yes, they are meant to be a set) to put in the upstairs hall in that house, that had the over-the-top jungle print wallpaper.


They were perfect.

Since this is the last room to be finished, and also the smallest of the 4 bedrooms, we decided it could have the fanciest lights.

They’re a bit over-the-top as well.

We have to have some fun.

He’s working on the floor – just not very rapidly…… We had sunshine today.
