    Oh dear,I'm feeling a bit queasy now....

    Igor served us some top notch Olde Fartinge Bishope last night to wash down his deviled pilchard kedgeree cobbler on a bed of kale.



    The Cauldron of Doom....where is it indeed?

    I'll have a word with Inspector Swindle.Maybe we should get The Narglehounds on it too?

    I'm still a bit miffed about someone giving them a whiff of my 18 hour girdle though when they were tasked with finding Igor's missing unmentionionables.... It was not funny.

    I have my suspicions.

    Yesterday was the last day of term (and the day I handed in my last ever uni essay)! Went out with a friend to a restaurant to celebrate. £14.50 spent.

    Today was NSD 5/12.

    Had SUCH a lazy day - literally didn't leave the house.

    I have 30p of my food budget left so will take out £30 next week to see how that goes. I still have loads of the fish left in the freezer so I think all I'll need to buy next week is vegetables.

    No,I meant the indignity of someone thinking that my beloved 18 hour girdle smells anything like Igor's stinky (sorry folks) unmentionables.
