  • Well I never.....

    ....... Well actually I did!

    Today I reserved a new 2 bedroom house for myself not far from where I was born in sunny West Yorkshire!

    Heathcliffe it's me, it's Spicey I've come home! :lalala:

  • Food for thought.....

    This from the "Universe" today:

    "What if that one person in your life right now that you're not feeling so much love for, Marian, was also the one person in your life right now for whom you could make the greatest difference?"

    Mmmmmm........

  • A tale of the unexpected

    Last week whilst I was staying in Devon I came across the Seaton Labyrinth click here to read all about it I read the information board which explained its origins and then proceeded to walk barefoot around the grassy walkway. Later that day I texted my daughters to tell them what I'd been doing. One said "What's a labyrinth" and the other said "Are you alright Mum, have you been eating magic mushrooms?"

    Fast forward to Sunday when I arrived at Keggy's house for a few days. Keggy suggested we went out for a late sandwich lunch at Audleys Wood hotel which was absolutely perfect. As we walked back to her car I told Keggy all about the labyrinth and then we drove out to a remote Hampshire village that she wanted to show me. We parked beside the village pond and watched a family of ducklings sleeping in the sunshine. Then Keggy showed me this defunct telephone box (look closely at the interior).

    Immediately my eyes alighted on this book ......

    How spooky was that?

    I am now in the process of reading the book.

  • Spicing things up a bit ......

    My life has been a bit 'peculiar' of late so I'm going to have a bit of a change. On Monday I am going to travel down to Devon to visit my friend and once time employer where I'll be returning the lamb costume I borrowed for Babes in the Wood (ages ago I know!!!)

    Then I am travelling on to Middleton-on-Sea on Saturday where I will be crashing out for one night with another friend I met in the good old SPICE days.

    To add to the excitement I'm even getting time to spend with my blog buddy Keggy. No doubt we will put the world to rights BIG TIME! :>>

    Right better get some washing out on the line and think about packing but first I'll have to crawl under my bed in search of Shaun! :crazy:

    :wave: Byeeeeeee.......

    Sports Day 2

  • As a cucumber!!!!

    As you may have read from my previous post, Aimee is off to London tomorrow for a casting interview for Junior Masterchef. Talk about being cool .... this is a message from her mum:

    'Dress rehearsal' went well. She seems quite relaxed about it all – I think she’s looking forward to a girly day out more than anything

    She basically said if they don’t put her through it’s their loss – how old is she again?

    I'll let you know how she gets on ...... :yes:

  • Junior Masterchef

    Aimee (my 12 year old granddaughter) has applied to go on Junior Masterchef. Following her application form both she and her mum were subjected to telephone interviews. Aimee is one of 25 out of 700 to go through to the next stage. This from the person who interviewed Aimee:

    Dear Aimee

    We were very impressed with your audition and we are pleased to invite you to attend our casting day.

    I can confirm that your appointment is on Saturday 21st June at 13:40. We ask that you please arrive 15 minutes before.

    The address is:

    Shine Soho, Suite 1.1, Moray House, 23-31 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 7PA - please see map attached for directions and local parking facilities.

    The audition will last approximately 15-20 minutes and there will be 2 people from the Junior MasterChef team in the room during you audition. We will be filming the audition for our purposes (we will not use this footage for use on the TV or show it outside of the Junior MasterChef team) and you may choose if you would like your parent or guardian to join you in the audition.

    Please bring a dish with you that you love to cook and that you think is delicious so that we can taste it.

    You only need to bring one dish which you will need to prepare/cook in advance

    It does not need to be a big portion and it can be sweet or savoury but it must be something we can eat cold and will travel well

    There are no heating or cooking facilities at the venue so please remember to bear this in mind – we will take into account when tasting your food that it is cold and you have travelled with it
    It would be great to see you present the dish on plate so please bear this in mind when planning the dish

    Plates, knives, cutlery and a chopping board will be provided (PLEASE DO NOT BRING THESE WITH YOU)

    Absolutely no fish, seafood or shellfish raw or cooked

    I asked her mum what she's decided to make and this is her reply:

    She is going for South African Bobotie, yellow rice and tomato and onion salad – as it’s got lots of flavour and will travel well.

    She said it would also be a good dish because she could talk about how she first had it 4 years ago during World Cup from SA and that she also loves sweet / savoury dishes (it’s got sultanas and mango chutney in the bobotie and sugar in the rice)

    So she’s thought it all through bless her!

    Train booked – we get into Euston at 12.15, she’ll be finished by 2.15 and we get train home at 17.30. So gives us a couple of hours to go and get something to eat. Exciting!

  • This I like........

    It's like all of the bad stuff, Marian, is just training so that you can fly higher into the light, on magic wings, over the rainbow, on a white unicorn, with your best friends, and live happily-ever-after.

  • Makes sense to me .......

    If you have to ask for "signs," let this need of yours be a "sign" that you should make haste very s-l-o-w-l-y.
