Five (5) Things: Monday 11th February

So far the thing of writing down 5 "moments" (dread word) from every day is working out OK for me. I don't know about you, mind. Anyway, here are today's:


  1. Eat North Staffordshire Pancakes for breakfast and marvel again at their chewy brilliance. If you do not know of them, they are like a cross between a crumpet and a pancake and sourdough bread and probably better for you than bread as made of oats etc. Recipe here. You should try them. 
  2. Wonder about fancy dress themes and am pretty sure everyone is doing Downton Abbey. For those that can take it, you get to wear nice dresses, dangly earrings, black tie, tweed, etc. For those that can't, you go as Mrs Patmore.
  3. A dog comes into office. I talk to dog, stroke it, pat it, play with its ears etc then realise Chairman is talking to me/looking at me/standing next to me etc whilst I am making "I love you" faces  at dog.
  4. Am secretly proud of massive scab I have on left hand from burning self on oven yesterday. Looks like have been in a fight with a hamster holding a tiny lightsabre made of internally illuminated super-hot metal. Make a lot of expansive hand gestures but no-one notices.
  5. Spots. Why spots? WHY?

I am a big fan of this five things a day thing. Yours in particular, of course, as you are an undeniable genius. But also just the idea in general, to the extent that I am considering stealing it. Like a big stealy thing. Yes.

YOU MUST! But remember: that means you are my ACCOMPLICE in stealing from OPRAH WINFREY'S FRIEND. That's right.

I too have been enjoying five things and thank you for the recipe.

The spots. Could they be from the oaty pancakes? I hope not, because they sound FABULOUS and I am planning on stealing the recipe*, and I am really too old and haggard for spots.
(*In as much as you can steal something that lives on the internet)

Do you have time to pooh?

No, but I have specially capacious plastic underpants which catch the worst of it.
