GYB info is in the previous post if your looking for that!
You know that adage about measuring twice and cutting only once?
Well, measuring ahead of time might help on occasion too!
I wanted some raised bed planters made and walked into the local wood yard, sort off t he cuff, since I was passing with buggy and granddaughter at the time, to ask what kind of price they would be.
Common sense would have suggested 4' x 18" ish but no,
I asked for 6' x2', thinking maybe, they'd fit anyway.
Common sense might have suggested I wait till I got home to measure the space properly too.
Anyway, no common sense went with me that day, so I ordered and paid for 4 of them.
So imagine my surprise when they delivered these!
LOL 6' x 3' - and I'd asked for 4 of them but not this wide!
So these have sat out back for almost 2 weeks, though the cats have climbed over, round and through them, and have had fun on them at least!
Well, I know all about them! Two thirds the width might well fit but I need a bloody mortgage for the earth to fill them all now!
Looking in a charity shop the other day I turned round to see this!
The fact that it was made from a real cats fur makes my skin crawl.
Some poor animal was skinned to produce this piece of tourist trash.
I finally got round to making some of these egg muffins and will be making them many times more! Even Evie at 20 months likes them.
I saw the idea on Facebook and although I didn't write down the recipe, I managed to recreate them well enough.
Lovely eaten warm and actually just as tasty cold!
I put some chopped up bits of ham, a few fine slithers of leeks and 4 chic peas in each muffin case. Then poured in whisked up, seasoned eggs with a little milk. Baked for 15-20 mins on 200 degrees.
They'd work just as well with a bit of cooked broccoli and a little grated cheese in them too I reckon. Light lunches made easy : )
Nipped into the bank in town the other day and looked briefly out of one window and was quite taken aback by the opposite building. The upper storey isn't occupied by the looks of it, but the combination of bright blue sky, the ramshackled-ness of the building and yet its evident past grandeur, the old street lamp and that enthusiastic buddleia plant atop on the right - just struck me as intriguing.
Talking about the GYB Party, I have been making my way slowly round the blogs on the list and this year I cannot believe how many blogs haven't even done a GYB blog post at all!
They have signed up to take part but then not done a blog post, to take part! A bit sad when you consider how much work goes into organising the event.
Anyway I hope those of you that have taken a stroll round the blogs have enjoyed the jaunt!
