Don't know why, but the idea of the  Prince of Wales fetching his own feathers suddenly seems a lot more interesting than the game of rugby itself. I knowwhich one I'd pay to watch...

My mum's local got pulled down and turned into one of these -- whither I am now bound for Extreme Grocery Action. So technically I am away down the Irwin - not my fault it's not there any more...

Good grief! Didn't spot that, maybe they'd sold out by the time I got to our local branch - whatever next?

my brain has done its usual couple of leaps here.

I remember as a child I always went to stay at my Grandmas house at new year and after midnight her neighbor used to  invite us in for snowballs, how 70's.  Being that I would have been under 10 I am not sure how sensible this was but it could explain a lot!

 

Happy New Year btw

I'm pretty sure that snowballs were dished out to all and sundry - children, teetotal great aunts, etc who Did Not Drink at Christmas for whatever reason: the logic must have gone like this:

1. No sensible drink is yellow

2. No real drink is opaque

3. It's half lemonade anyway, which is for kids

4. And that cherry on top means it's really just a rather liquid trifle, and that's pudding.

 

In the late 70s I was a barmaid at the sort of east Leeds boozer not much give to ****tails - but there was a crusty bottle of parfait amour under the sink for some reason. I was never, ever tempted to take a test swig

 

OH SEE WHERE THE SYSTEM HAS CENSORED MY USE OF A WORD FOR MIXED DRINKS... TEE HEE

(today I have ordered my series 4, so that's two whole reasons to be cheeful - not bad for 2014 so far...)

Ha! A little Googling got me back up to speed... which was a doddle after the phonecall I just had with BT, which led to their grovelling apologies and a £10 compensation credit for a failed attempt to overcharge me £90 on my latest bill (and that's £10 straight into the series 5 piggy bank of course)

War gaming, eh? You're messing with the woman who lost the interactive Battle of Hastings at the Royal Armories three times in a row- not bad, given there were only 2 sides to start with...

we used to go camping in France every summer when we were kids.  One stand out memory for me was going to see the Bayeux Tapestry. Very humbling to look at something so old

The first joke I ever got involving French was Paddington's attempt to navigate the Brown family along a shred of marmelade stuck to his map to a place that translates as "loose chippings"

I bet you've earned huge Brownie points for being a super-mum for that!

On a slightly smaller scale, I'm currently rooting around for pictures for tomorrow's lecture, including:

I just googled punch, no idea what is actually in this version, it must be pineapple juice instead of orange to make it that colour.

If my trivia-ometer serves me well, that leaves another 4 ingredients of that particular brew that should be ashamed of themselves!

Best I can do right now (got back from mother's to find my series 4 waiting on the doormat - so of course I had to give it a bit of a test drive... it might have been a wonky DVD and I might have had to ruturn it before we have a rewatch...) But it'sOK...

No, but this is Sunday dinner:

(Obviously, as a Yorkshirewoman, I'm culturally obliged to mock the dinky Yorkshire pud served WITH the dinner, rather than a proper big one first... ut that's nothing to the mocking I'd give millionaire Mr Hurst. Err...)

chippy tea

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS1KBXo9qMOeH1qJk0w3jnpU4RMJUFB0Z65oSxCbgM1S9SrtXgwiQ

 

why do you Yorkshire folk have pudding before your tea?  Here in Lancashire, and I think the rest of the world, pudding is the course you have at the end

Mmm, in the case of my family, dad would have felt defrauded if the Yorkshire pud had been much smaller than the plate - certainly too big to fit anything else on, so of course everything else came afterwords (and left no room for afters)

Very much like the pasta course first - Italian and Yorkshire matriarchs alike would tell the assembled clan - the more Yorkshire pud/ spaghetti you eat now, the more meat you can have later. And it wqs mostly a bluff.

And you're not telling me that Lancashire folk are  so uncivilizeed that you put custard on your steak and kidney pudding, are you? I am shocked.

 

Tea party

It was a kids tv drama adapted from a book about a prehistoric boy who lived in a cave at the local dump, it was called 'Stig of the Dump' I read the book at primary school and this was the first book I knew to see turn into a tv show circa 1980

Thank you! 

 

THIS is the Stig I grew up with - don't remember if he was a Jackanory story or whether we had it read to us at school, but I know I liked it so much I bought the book - and he was much shaggier the first time round (well it was the Sixties after all):

if you are struggling with a pic try left clicking and search google for this image, it works wonders. i'll help you out this time, it is the character 'Bouncer' from Tracey Beaker, hence the Pearls 'favorite' show remark

always happy to oblige.  what about wolfblood? Have you not got into that?  The joys of having an 8 year old mean you can watch CBBC guilt-free because you are 'spending quality time' snuggling on the sofa.

I liked the first couple of episdes of Wolfblood and meant to keep up with it but didn't for reasons that now escape me. Must try harder!

Here's something that's supposed to be a yummy treat (I think) but makes no sense at all to me... no
