Stirring The Spoon

What a day I have had!
Someone was stirring the spoon in a vat of warm mud,
Causing hot air and bubbles....
Meanwhile, I got to finish the other Birthday card.
Plus made a lovely batch of mocha cupcakes.
If you don't mind, I am now off to taste test one!

I'm In The Mood For...

We have a very short season of Asparagus here in the UK.
I read a great recipe using asparagus in the last few days..
Do you think I can find it?
Even looked in the recycle bin for the past couple of day's papers
I know I have 2 out of 3 ingredients..
However I did find another recipe for tonight...
After getting all the nice ingredients for the nice meal tonight.
I really do hope my hubby like asparagus.....

Snail Time

It's Monday again....
The sun is out but..
The temperature had dropped,  the leggings came back on....
Nearly late for my first job, as one of my son's was trying to be a snail.
Nearly late for my coffee and chat at Webb's
Then nearly late for my second job too.
As the afternoon warmed up,the leggings came off, and the sunglasses came on.
At least I wasn't late for the second shift of my first job!

Look What I Found!!

Whoo hoo Sunday once again.
Time to make the most of the lovely sunshine.
We went back to exploring more churches.
I discovered a grave covered up with nettles.
We cleaned away the nettles to reveal a U.S Serviceman.
While looking around we found something in the next field.

CSI Droitwich

I visited Droitwich Library on World Book Day,
To listen to a talk by a retired CSI Officer called Gerry.
We had free coffee and free homemade biscuits.
It was so interesting to hear about all the cases Gerry had been involved in.
Some solved & some not.
I could have sat there all night and listened to his stories.
At the end of the evening we all had a free book of Lynda La Plant & "Prime Suspect"

Play Time!

The time is 2am
I have had enough painkillers to numb everyone's else pain apart from mine!
I had two options:
Go downstairs play on the Internet or
Play with husband.
Husband won.
Wore out husband.
He is fast asleep.
I am still racked with a painful mouth & ear.
Still can't sleep.... 
Now for a play with the Internet...

Smiling Through Gritted Teeth.

The sun is out.
So is my sun glasses, sun cream and floppy sun hat.
Been suffering from pain in mouth today.
Plenty of swilling of salt water, pain killers, and Dental Gel.
I yet another visit to Dentist tomorrow.....
I fear this pain is going to last a good 4 months due to the waiting list at the Dental Hospital.
Due to all this yogurt I am eating
I might be minus a few chins....

Making The Most Off.....

It's Saturday once more.
Making the most of no work and the sunshine.
I had to book another trip to the Dentist for Tuesday.
As in agony from where I had the fillings put in last Tuesday ;/
Had my hair trimmed at the Hairdressers.(That didn't hurt!)
We looked around the charity shops in Droitwich.
I bought something where I can hide my goodies,

No Coconut This Time!

I had another trip to the Dentist.
This time it was to see the Hygienist
Tried her best to give my teeth a good clean...

Licking The Tin

I have been fighting this flu with a smile and a sigh.
 Nearly a week stuck at home with it.
I was sat in the garden, directing  orders to my hubby this morning.
I needed to do something ...
So out came Kenny the Kenwood and a Mary Berry Cookbook.
The end result:
Butterscotch Cake

Saying It With Flowers

I spent the early hours unable to sleep.
So I caught up on loads of television programmes.
Series 3 of Bake Off, I love 1971 etc.
Hubby surprised me with flowers!
Sad news a great favourite from The Dukes Of Hazzard has died.
James Best played the Sheriff in the TV Series.
