I knew you were laughing , you cheeky girl and further more I have to agree with you entirely. Fortunately I can laugh at myself too and I know when I am getting too intense. This is one of those times that I take things too seriously. For the record, I absolutely love your sense of humour, and I love you too.xxxxx

You is one funny lady Patricia, of course I,m talking to you, what would I miss if I didn,t, a load of laughs that's for sure .xxxx

Two posts - oh you little Jewel - just when I thought my sensa-umer had just gone a tad too far that is comforting - at the moment - I would love to tell you a funny - but the opening episode of Dexter is on and he's wearing a pink shirt and arguing with Deb - his sister - ooh I love the guy - and his sister - she's a cop - yikes her language !!! But being she is a senior police-woman and has just seen her baby brother killing a serial killer - to make sure he is punished - she has problems

This thread has everything - even fitness workouts now! I feel another book coming on... With that Hula Hoop, i think Pixie is more than qualified :)

My contribution, avoid rowing; I never was sporty so I chose it at school on the basis that I'd be sitting down all the time, bobbing up and down on the water, taking in the sun and scenery. I lost count of the number of times i died, mentally and physically!

Anyway, must get an early night - Mrs Johnson's Caramel Flapjack weekend! who knows, this could be the first steps towards 'The Great British Bake Off 2014'!!

Diamond I should have thought you had realized that you really ARE yourself - you are now able to see that there is no one else BUT you that is better suited to the job.

I know, but sometimes I feel as if I,m just pretending. I think it comes from trying to be all things to all people, I forget just who I am inside, a bit of a mess some days, Wonder Woman the next.....thanks

Cheers Pixie, I,m fine really.. I think my creative urges are blossoming again and I need to do something to satisfy them,it will soon be time to get out on the garden again which will be good, but I want to make something, just haven,t decided what yet....sewing, or painting or crafts,I,m looking for inspiration, I think I,d like to do a collage for my bedroom, or sew some new curtains for it, I,ll get there.xxxx

Alot of it goes over my head but I saw a must have...take a look at Pip wilson artist. it's on his own website. There is ONE pic on there that just got me...Garden roses...smashing! I am shocked to say I didn't pay anything like that price! Yippee!

Hi Diamond, I think getting started is the hardest thing. I did a watercolour course a couple of years ago and would love to get back into it especially whilst I have the time at home just now, you're right it's just finding the inspiration. Good luck xx

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Mar 2013 16:12:13 GMT
@Diamond, you should definitely get stuck into a project, it always makes me feel better. Gives you a positive focus and a personal boost when it starts coming together :)

I caught Pneumonia last Christmas and was stuck indoors for over a month, so started Knitting and I love it now xx

I have also just started learning Piano and its brilliant fun! Just trawl YouTube for videos of your hobbies and you'll soon get g'eed up xx

Ps. I hope Retro hasn't poisoned himself this weekend :/

Or got "Over exposed"! Lol!x....hope he wins!

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Mar 2013 22:04:25 GMT
So do I, especially considering he was going to do your caramel flapjacks. Haha, that would be a bit of a bummer.

just to reassure you, I am still alive, but I bought all the ingredients today, so might not be for much longer!

Get cracking, I want to know how they turned out. I love anything with toffee, bannoffi pie is one of my favourites, made sticky toffee pudding last weekend,was delush, that,s a new word. A cross between delicious and ever so slightly tipsy.xxxx

Well done Ed - stay well and enjoy the food
Sticky Toffee Pudding - I think that is one for me to make please can you direct me to the recipe you use - I have probably got the book, will also see if I have the recipe already - my guests love to eat - and they should be getting details of the flights soon

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Mar 2013 09:41:34 GMT
LOLs @ Pixie and Diamond... Over exposed and dead... Wouldn't be a great advert for my book!
Yay to Retro, just for being alive :)
@Pattie, your guests will never want to leave, sticky toffee pudding is MMMM MMMM Delicious

Have a Delush day peepsicles xx

It,s a Delia Patricia' I,m not sure which book but I think it,s the winter cooking one.....last weekend I did the James Martin version from his book desserts!! You can find both recipes online...BBC good food is always a good source for recipes, if you can,t find them I will check it our for you. They are both really easy to do, loaded with calories but absolutely wonderful. James uses golden syrup and black treacle in his, Delia just adds a little coffee essence "camp" ,James has a stronger flavour, I can,t decide which one I like best.xx

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Mar 2013 10:08:26 GMT
Depends which bit,s he,s overexposing Debs, !!!!lol.xxxx

Posted on 4 Mar 2013 10:24:56 GMT
Eeek !! Camp Cooking not in Chateau Patti - we have Lakeland - but my neighbour is a trifle camp. I may be almost sure - that I have James and Delia's Books - will look up
Diamond - I am told Kate Moss takes a poor photo - underdeveloped and over-exposed

I remember there was a coffee shortage when I was about 8 and the carol singers from church came around and mother made them coffee out of "Camp" coffee.

She did not try the coffee she had made till after they had gone. No doubt the presence of the Vicar saved any remarks about the coffee. It was horrible. She had put miles too much in.

My eldery friend, sadly no longer with us, loved it poured over icecream with muscavado sugar....eeeekkk!
She said they got used to it when coffee was hard to come by.

Oh wow, thanks for the memory, sister used to sprinkle instant coffee powder mixed with cinnamon over vanilla or choc icecream. Go gently...heckuva pick-me-up, though, particularly if you use a gold-type blend.
