Yes it's Monday again - I can't believe it! First of all apologies to anyone who read that I was moving my blog elsewhere, for various reasons I've had to shelve the idea so please don't abandon me! Anyway here we go...
1. What is your favourite kind of fudge?
I don't actually like fudge! I find it too sweet (my friend Cath loves it, I think her favourite is banana flavoured). Now if it were chocolate... now we're talking! It has to be dark chocolate, and my favourite is called Celtic Free From Luxury Chocolate... Mmmmmmmmm!
2. Is there snow outside your window?
The very short answer to that is no. The forecast for today is a cloudy, chilly day with brisk north-westerly winds, and then rain/drizzle for most of the week. I'll be at work so don't care anyway! I'm not one of those people who moans about the weather, although it seems to be a national pastime in England. I think it stems from when my Mum was terminally ill, all she wanted to do was come home and be able to sit outside in her garden one last time, and she never got to do it. Now I'm just grateful I can go out in whatever weather every day. And I like the rain anyway! :O)
3. What is your favourite meal of the day?
Hmmmm, tough one that, probably breakfast, especially if it involves mushrooms on toast. I just love mushrooms on toast...
4. Do you text on your mobile phone?
Yes! I do it a lot, much more than I make calls. I'm usually in touch with at least one of my friends by text every day. The music I have on my phone to alert me to a text message is Bach's Toccata and Fugue. (I love Bach almost as much as I love chocolate, and mushrooms on toast).
My phone - the front screen tells me the time and what the weather is like
- it doesn't always get it right... We had brilliant sunshine on Friday
and it predicted fog! :O)
5. Waffles or pancakes?
Well, waffles aren't really that common over here, and I think pancakes probably mean something different to me than it would to anyone in the USA. I don't have a sweet tooth and I much prefer toast anyway. Especially if it's crusty, home made bread. And now I'm hungry...
We celebrate pancake day (see above image) in England on Shrove Tuesday (the day before the start of Lent), which is March 8th this year because Easter is so ridiculously late that it comes a week before the May Day Bank Holiday!!!! Will someone please standardise it before we're eating Easter Eggs in June?
