"Window on your World" - me at 5pm

Today the BBC PM programme on Radio4 is asking people to send them images taken at 5pm when the programme comes on air. This is my effort:

Bill's Kitchen and dining-room at 5pm today

Here's what I said in my email to the PM programme:

Hello there
I'm attaching a photograph taken just as the pips were sounding 5pm.

It is taken in the kitchen part of my kitchen dining-room; I have just come through to prepare an early supper as I shall be going to a chamber music concert[*] in a couple of hours. You can see my laptop on the dining-table through the room-divider, where I am logged-on (wi-fi) to my own blog. On the menu tonight is rib-eye steak and a salad, followed by stewed cranberries with pine kernel nuts and cream ... I will probably have a glass of Merlot to go with the steak!

[*] - Postscript: the concert earlier tonight was excellent; a quartet of young musicians (the Navarra String Quartet, comprising two Dutch violinists, one Dutch viola player and one English cellist) gave a very enthusiastic and polished performance of works by Haydn, Mozart and Shostakovich; they are all at an early stage of their professional careers, but I sense that they will have a long and successful future, collectively and individually; they currently study at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
