Just another culinary masterpiece - some tomato chilli chickin thingy. Actually cheated big time tonite - credit to a bottled sauce (head hung in shame !!)

WW helped - she chucked some pedigree chum in a dog bowl, luckily the dogs scoffed that..

This afternoon while I was in other parts of town, it seemed like folks have begun to depart for other parts of the world. Some frenzy in the shoppers, but a nice quiet is beginning to come upon us.

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Know what you mean, Wizzard - I can't take a lot of him in one go (so to speak) but I do like it when he acts 'straight'.....rather than the excessive gurning!
Hey PM, think your daughter's bean bag made it to Exmoor....we were driving along and for a while thought it had been snowing -but obviously some lorry shedding those polystyrene bits all along the verges.....
