Change Of Subject ( Inc Bake Off Spoilers)


I was saddened to see the funny Northerner Sandy leave the Bake Off tonight. With the best Yorkshire one liners and a smile like a split melon she was a breath of fresh air and will be missed.
Of the survivors I kinda like Nadiya ( she pulls more strange faces than Phyllis Diller) Paul ( it's the goatee) and Tamal ( how cute is he?)
Sad to see that Ian is being set up to be the hated school swot!

On a different note, I will now give a begrudging pat on the back to our local fox. Last night he must of found Bingley's body hidden away under the hawthorn for after my usual morning search, I found the tell tale signs of a trail of turkey feathers leading from the field through the riding stable fields.
For a fox to be able to lift a fully grown, dead weight turkey stag is a feat in itself, to carry it a considerable distance is a real testament to hunger.
Recycling at it's best!
To end with, I shall tell you the subject of tomorrow's post.......
It centres around a potentially disastrous accident...when Winnie Knocked George into the River Elwy then proceeded to fall into the water herself.
My nerves are fucking shot to ribbons

  7. Good Lord, that is one thing that used to freak me out walking Kane along the water. That I would have a dog fall in and have to rescue it was enough to keep me closer to dry land. Hope everyone is ok.
    And I think if you are hungry enough you could move a mountain. Deb

  9. The fox may have had help. At least there is no more wondering, John. Yes, recycling the natural way. (Still sad)

  12. Omg! John too much excitement. Can you also remember to post about the results of the international blogger photo competition. I think there are some of us who would love to see the results . I still fondly remember Rachel's spectacular tits from last year ......

    1. The Trelawnyd elders have never recovered and hence the delay in the result for this year and having seen my red onions and shrivelled pepper entry they are once again in recovery. Isn't that true John?

  14. Looking forward to the next installment, assuming it's got a happy ending of course. I can't believe you've only got 860 odd followers. You're my absolute favourite blogger.

  20. I watched 'Bake Off' with my two grandsons (7 and 9). When it was announced that it was Sandy who was leaving a huge cheer went up from the boys. They obviously didn't see her as you did.

  21. Never a dull moment!

  22. How did you get 20 followers in 2 days? 880 now. (sorry for the change of the subject)/

  23. Has Bingley died? I musthave missed a post somewhere John.
    We often leave out hens who die and usually (unless they are too scraggy to bother with) a fox comes and takes them overnight.

    Yes, I was sorry to see Sandy go but the competition is fiercer as time goes on. Her Pontefract cake brulee sounded andlooked horrible and her top layer of cheesecake couldn't be put on because the middle layer was not set enough - so I do think it was probably the right choice.

  24. I'm glad you told us about Bingley, John. I'm sure I'm not the only one needed closure on his final outcome. We'll miss the old boy. Can't wait for details on the river ruckus!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's nice to know Bingley's final fate, but I hope the death itself was peaceful for him, I should imagine it was. RIP Bingley you were liked and respected by folk all over the world, not many a turkey can say that.

  26. Oh my God!! What was Winnie thinking? I would've shit my pants. I can't swim a lick. That had to be scary for you John. Although I have to admit, its pretty funny now. I'm glad she's ok

    ReplyDelete
  27. At least you had closure about Bingley. Even if he went light as chickens do, it was still probably a great meal for the fox, especially if she has pups. I know when I've thrown gifts over the fence from the cats that crows, turkeys, skunks, and who knows what else have been glad to have a meal.
