Beetroot


I've had a nice birthday.
The Prof bought me a polar bear light which I rather like and we went to twin sister Janet's home  for a lovely ( if potentially calorific ) twin based birthday tea!
I was pretty good after I ate a scotch egg ( oh be still my beating heart) By scoffing a load of cooked beetroot to fill myself up.
Tomorrow my urine will be purple!
Thank you all for your cards, gifts, phone calls and best wishes...as Larry Grayson used to mouth at the end of The Generation Game I will say..." I love you all" 
Ps I have been asked by bloggers what I eventually looked like when the face mask was finally removed
Here is my selfie

    1. I too was astonished (at first) at the resemblance. 'Gladiator' or 'Robin Hood'? Needless question. We want to see J.G. in Roman skirt with leather straps. Ooooooh!

  14. So I was told there was a selfie of the after effects of the "treatment". I looked in the post and couldn't find it. Bit slow today, birthdays can do that. Is that your selfie? How does the chorus go?
    "O No John! No John! No John! No! ".

  17. LOL - we should have expected as much :)

  18. if you want to be bad you should try Hugh Fernlay Whittingstall's beetroot and chocolate cake. It's wicked. (The polar bear is cool.)

  19. The bear light I can cope with - I thought the beauty mask too away wrinkles, not increased facial hair, I'd better take mine back pronto!

  20. Can we have a real selfie please ? Your skin is far softer & younger looking than Mr C's and I bet looking even better after The Mask !

    1. You sound surprised, Rachel. Instead of speculating upfront why this may be so, I'd rather ask you first: "Why?".

  22. That's amazing! Where do I get the face mask?

  23. Your eyes look rather baggy in the after photograph! :)

  24. The new you looks haughty and ill-tempered. I preferred the old you - like a favourite old jacket - frayed at the edges, a couple of buttons missing but still serviceable.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, please! We all know you look a hell of a lot better than THAT old guy! Beetroot! Blech! One of my most hated foods. Sorry.

  26. The Prof has wonderful taste (in men, obviously) in lighting!
    We bought a Polar Bear for our grandsons room, but in white, and we also got him the Grey Fox.
    Maybe the Prof needs to get the fox for you, now that you're officially a silver fox!
    Pleased to hear you had a great day! X
