    Oh no, the badgers are back.

    They have tunnelled under the back fence again. I've dropped a big rock into the hole but I will have to do something more permanent when I am fit.

    Ah, "boing" eh Tips?


    Hello all, I apologise for being unable to attend the festivities and sausage-munching of yesterday.
    Sad, because I love a good banger.
    Badgers too, Fruity?


    And I thought we had wildlife ............ there are loads of badgers hereabouts. Roe deer too. Fortunately for me, NOT in MY garden.

    Well, it has been a glorious spring day here, albeit non too warm.
    If the forecasts are even near correct (admittedly it would be unusual) that will make it a pleasant day for shopping with my beloved and son tomorrow.

    No, not the wire trolley dash - don't need that yet.
    More a few treat-type-things for beloved since it will soon be Mothering Sunday, plus no doubt a "spoil" for son.
    Oh and eats too.
    I will say "Hello" to Clee for you Fruity.


    Because of driving on the morrow, no drinky-poos for me this evening.
    But if my writing is slurred tomorrow on here, you'll know why.

    Thanks for the timely reminder, too.

    Have a most splendiferous evening all.
    Mine will be spent watching Amazon TV & unwinding.
    (Consider me currently as wound as Tip's pic.)
    Laters.

    The Last Username have a fantastic day out.
    Glad you remembered Zebedee, it was all that talk of Spring. Also the reminder of the clocks- Spring forward.

    The Magic Roundabout was always one of my favourite TV programmes. Now as a reminder of those happy times we have a set of four MR plates depicting different characters.

    One of my nicknames was Mr Rusty because of my hair colour and large bald area.

    Josephine may make an appearance laterer.

    How are things up your end, or should I say, down your way?

    I've written down some recipes from the latest Mary Berry TV series to try out on the family. I now have three different pizza recipes, all using a different type of flour. I have no idea if it will alter the taste, but I intend to do a controlled experiment to find out.

    Norf, Souf, Easter and Wester all too much after wine!
    Now Pizza that sounds good.
    So many, with so many different types of cheese.
    Now look, I am back onto cheese again.

    Well for the control experiment I am going to have to use the same type of cheese for each one. However, once I have done that I will be trying lots of different ones.

    I have come across a place that does buffalo milk products on the road we take to Darset. The definitely do buffalo milk ice cream and I'm pretty sure they have a caf! and shop, so will have to see if they do buffalo cheese. I'm also going to try soft goats cheese which is supposed to be similar.

    I really like Goats cheese.
    I also tried some really nice cheese in Lisbon.
    Home- made pizza is far superior to shop bought.
    Do you also make the bases?
