It's a damp and rainy Good Friday here.
As a treat we are having fish and chips for tea
We bought some designer cutlery yesterday which will replace the eclectic mixture of ikea crap and 1940s bone handled hand-me-downs we have been using for years....
We both decided that we felt very grown up having proper tableware!
The dish is another wedding gift to ourselves
AnyhowI've often been accused of portraying village life in an unrealistic and somewhat saccharine way. Perhaps I am guilty as charged .
But I don't really think so.
A few late wedding gifts are perhaps a case in point.
|They could be twins|
village proved to be a big hit with a certain dog in the cottage and when I was on the phone to another Trelawnyd-ite , who was in dire need of some phone TLC a somewhat strange but typical message "
appeared " magically on the answerphone
It was as economical as it was clear
" Auntie Glad here..........SCONES,"
I dutifully called in with a pocket full of goose eggs for her, half an hour later, only to find her laughing at the fact that she had forgotten to add sugar to the scone mix.
" They are not my best specimens" she quipped " so, Ive added a jar of raspberry jam to compensate"
When I got home, I found a handwriiten card hidden away amongst the goodies
Life in a village can be lovely if you meet the right people!
