Ninja Glad

Yesterday, when we were relaxing with a cuppa and rubbish tv
there was a very quiet rustling at the front door.
Another bag of homemade scones had been surreptitiously left on the door knob
Who had been a calling?
Yes another ninja esque visit by Auntie Glad

  5. A fiery Gran with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver (hair). It's Aunty Gladys!

  7. Aunty Glad methinks.
    We get the same in France, in which case it would be Mme André leaving a basket of haricots verts or walnuts.

  9. Bang goes your diet then John! It must be difficult to keep the weight off when everyone in the village wants to fatten you up!

  21. Oh aren’t you two lucky chaps, scones delivered at your door. All I have is the Crazy Cat Lady and believe I don’t want her delivering anything at my door.

  22. She's so fast, so sly, so on the fly. Want to be just like Auntie Glad when I grow up!

  23. We all love Auntie Glad - does she know that she's the star of Blogland? Because she is.

  24. I just hope you are going to scoop up Auntie Gladys and take her with you to the next WW meeting... mitigating circumstances... as to why you still have a backside the size of Winifred's. You can then take Winifred the following week to illustrate the point... as it were!?!

  35. This is unbelievably off topic...but I couldn't find the original post.
    We had the Emmy Awards here tonight...Behind the Candelabra won best miniseries/movie and Michael Douglas won best leading actor in a drama.
    Anywho, when I heard this it made me think of you and your review...just thought I'd let you know. :) Nighty night.
