Oh Lucky! You are an affectionate, cuddly dog, and I'm grateful for that. You are also a naughty, boisterous little monster who steals socks, mobile phones and door stops, just to get a little more attention, but still, at least you don't chew them up anymore. And for all your energy, you don't like getting up in the morning, before you, I'd always thought that all dogs were 'morning dogs', always keen to start the day, but no, not you. Which is fine, I'm happy lying in too.

One year old today, or there abouts, based on the vets guess of her age on her first visit the day after Nick found her in the street. Or she found him. My colleague and his partner couldn't offer her a home as he's allergic to cat hair and their dog hates cats. And no one else he called would take her, I said I couldn't, not with the dog I had already taken in off the street. And now, 10 months later, here she is. Jaffa because of her colouring, chocolate brown, biscuit-beige and orange, and because oranges are from Spain, and so is she. Happy birthday Jaffa.

The mole sauce went well with the vegetables, and made dinner very quick and easy, a good thing with the heat.
I wonder if this is authentic, it seemed fairly bland, I've only ever eaten my own interpretation of mole sauce, so wondered what this would be like. I haven't really followed a recipe, just looked at the ingredient list and then made something up based on that, usually with a lot more chilli than this.
