    Oh, all right then .....




    If you insist .....





    My heart was afluttering yesterday because I spent a wonderful day with my oldest three granddaughters, six and four, who I don't get to see as often as I would like.






    And just in case a certain dog lady thinks I can't add up, I have four year old twin granddaughters and a six year old.

    I had frogs legs and snails in a French lesson at school many years ago and both were OK all you can taste on French food is garlic.

    Snails are like a less chewy version of mussels but covered in garlic

    After not being able to sleep and doing competitions most of the night, then getting rudely awoken by a fake phone call. I have a small win from yesterday to report, of some wax melts for my warmer.

    I also came across some competitions that may be use to those trying to get certain letters.

    The newt may be able to give guidance ....
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    The French use lots of wine in their cooking in my experience! Possibly not echo falls but still, think of the wine and you'll be fine let us know what you choose, i'm intrigued to know how you find it!

    I seem to be on a Ralph Lauren spree at the moment, had a message today that i'd won a wallet to go with the belt that I won a few days ago. I can't manipulate it to fit into any of my spare alphabet letters though unfortunately have updated my total though!
