Iced Fancies


I got home after work around 8.20 am
I am off for a sleep but thought I'd share my first surreal 
village moment of the day.
Thanks to the person who treated the sheep to an early morning treat before 
I returned to Trelawnyd.
As I pulled up I saw Irene and Sylvia happily munching their way through 
two iced fingers.

  4. Finger Buns!! With fondant icing!
    Out here we call them finger buns and finding any with fondant icing is very hard. These days they're all soft icing sprinkled with coconut. I prefer the fondant and the buns must be eaten cut in half lengthways and spread with real butter.

  5. John, when I saw the photograph I thought your obsession had gone from Scotch eggs to Iced fancies! What relief - it is Irene and Sylvia.

  7. if Irene and Sylvia leap over the gate and run away up the lane heading for Sunny Rhyl, you will know that the iced buns were laced with cocaine.

  10. I had iced fingers this morning too! That's what you get walking the dogs when it's minus 4 and you've got holes in your gloves.

  12. That sounds good to me but I wonder if it's something you mind your sheep having.

  13. I don't believe I have heard of iced fingers, and was wondering if we have anything of the sort. Which made me think of bear claws (not at all the same, but a sweet pastry nonetheless) and that made me think of bears and that ... Well, never mind.

  14. Even the sheep are loved in the Village

  15. People often take stale bread to feed the ducks on the pond, not usually iced fancies to feed the sheep at the Ukrainian village!

  16. We had iced fingers for school break, but we called them greased rats!

  17. Gosh don't tell the sheep in our field that yours get iced fingers .... they'll be up the A55 before you can say 'breaded treats'......

  18. Wow. I wish someone would give me a iced treat! :)

  19. Do you ever worry that the animals might be given something that would harm them, John? How strange to think that a grass-eating animal would enjoy iced fingers!
    Maybe I should take a few up on to the Moor next time I walk up there.

  20. Do you ever have your sheep sheared John?

  22. I might have been tempted to make them share!

  23. Well, that's better than human fingers, isn't it? Unless the iced fingers were....

  24. Ooh childhood memories, M&S pink iced buns with raspberry jam inside. In packs of six. Hell, I was a greedy child!
