You need bigger balls!


I'm  now sat at the kitchen table with a large coffee. According to radio 2 research has " proven" that drinking three cups of coffee in a 24 hour period is good for you. I drink one massive cup of coffee in the morning, so I'm doing something right!
One of cockerel bachelors has been attacking a couple of the more timid  neighbours. Nothing serious given his size but it was slightly upsetting for the slightly built Mandy who was actually sharing a few crusts of bread with them at the time.
"Stand you ground, stamp your foot at him, face him and flap your arms like wings" I told her as she gave me a rather dubious look. " He has to know you are a tough bitch with balls bigger than his" 
It seems to have worked as Mandy has been " flapping her arms" like a good un everytime she passes the group as they sunbathe by the field gate.
Back to my coffee.
The sun is shining today too which is lovely. I can catch up with jobs after the torrential rain of yesterday.
My job list is growing as my 500 ml coffee cup empties

Bath dogs,
Order coal and logs, book car service, more phone calls....Flower Show jobs
Paint old Trevor's side fence ( he's paying me!)
Finalise garden entries for Flower Show
Deliver remaining schedules, and sell raffle tickets to the East side of village,
Make turkey meatballs and a tomato sauce from scratch for supper
Write a letter to the village conservation group
But for now......before I start.......I shall sit quietly at the kitchen table with the sun streaming through the window.
And I will drink my coffee

  2. I have three, sometimes FOUR MUGfuls of coffee every day. (Instant, alas. Can't be bothered with all this faffing around with filters etc). I'm going to live to 120 at least. Bear that in mind.

  7. You don't need to make turkey meatballs, just ask for some from your local turkey farmer. The gobblers are a lot more passive when they have had their balls removed.

    1. I am sitting in my conservatory with a brute of a dehumidifier drying the cellar. My kitchen is ruined after the seal on my hot water tap blew... In the middle of the night.... I discovered it on Sunday morning.

  11. That bit about the coffee was on our news as well...I wonder how much the coffee industry paid for that bit of promo. I'm willing to believe it though because I do love my coffee.

  17. Just a few months ago our news was....
    Coffee will cause you heart problems.
    Like it will stop and you will die.
    Now they say I can drink it and be wonderful.
    Good news for me. I never stopped anyway.
    I recently learned cold brewing coffee.
    Great stuff in this insane heat we've
    been experiencing.

  23. That celeriac looks like the robot from "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

    I drink exactly 3 cups of coffee each day! Who knew I was being so good to myself? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well I drink at least 6 cups a day .... so it must be doubly good for me 😁

  25. Before I read the caption, I thought the beetroot rat was a gift from Albert.
    I gave up coffee due to GERD. A pot of tea for me is now the morning ritual.

  26. The beetroot rat looks more like a used tampon to my eye LOL
