We went to my Auntie Ann’s yesterday and she gave me this…
Apparently I’d sounded down when I spoke to her on Friday night to say I wasn’t going in for my stem cell transplant on Monday. It’s just as well I didn’t ring her as soon as I got home or she’d have bought the whole of Delamere Forest!
I got one off our neighbour and his ladyfriend last year and it seemed to be doing okay until I shook it to get rid of the faded flowers and the whole top fell off! I think I may have over watered it, which is suprising because I normally maintain a ‘treat ’em mean, keep ’em keen’ plant policy.
We’ll check back in a month to see how the begonia is doing.
I decided two weeks ago that I couldn’t eat a treat unless I made it myself.
This is my chocolate and berry cake.
It actually tasted okay but a bit dry surprisingly.
On the other hand this is my Auntie Eleanor’s parkin which I graciously received today.
And here’s a tip if you ever make or receive parkin. Pop it in the freezer for a while and thaw before consuming and it makes it kind of sticky and even gorgeouser.
When we were looking after Tommy, B came home one morning and informed me that he had bought me a present and it was in the kitchen. I rushed downstairs all excited and look what I got…
Bernard was quick to point out that they are PERFURMED! But let’s face it it takes a lot to cover Eau de Poop.
On the impromptu gift front this has been preceded in the past by two spanners* – which were both the same size – one for each hand so I could work twice as fast!
After having attempted to use them I would like to point out that I don’t know when Bob Martin last scooped a poop himself but it must have belonged to a very miniature animal because I had problems with Tommy’s, goodness knows how you’d get on with a dalmatian. The PERFUMED bags are very fine which is okay for some things but in my book nothing that requires a poop scoop bag should be felt.
* I did actually like the spanners.
