Look at my Begonia

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.

Look at my er… cake???

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.

Look at my Poop Scoop Bags

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.
