Quite an evening...

A couple of months ago I posted about a crowd blocking the road who wouldn't let me get past in the car and my dilemma as to the most appropriate way to proceed. Well, I keep hearing one of them in the neighbourhood and I've suspected since that he has been watching the house.

Thankfully, I've finally managed to get a picture of him in action and I'm prepared to use it as evidence if it gets that far. You can can see the picture here - let me know if you think you recognise him. Click here to read the original post.


Onto more serious (?!) matters, I've had a lovely bit of crumpet tonight. "About time too Seany" I hear the cries, but they would be wrong; I'm not on the brink of relinquishing my much treasured singledom.

In my humble opinion, one of the best morning goods available is the crumpet, or pikelet, or whatever you want to call it, but either way, they look like this:



What makes these particularly special to me is that I made them myself this evening, with no help from the magic white box I hasten to add. To my absolute amazement they look (and taste) like real ones although you haven't seen the experimental forerunners that didn't quite make it to the photo shoot...

I'm impressed. I hope you filled up all those holes with obscene amounts of the black sticky stuff.

I do like a bit of crumpet with my Marmite - oooer missus...

V impressive, but marmite on crumpets? yeughh! I like mine with lashings of runny butter.

Watch out for that fella, by the way. I think's called Mal and he's quite 'ard. ( It's the sun, it's doing funny things to me)

Truth to tell, I like mine absolutely drowned in both!

As for "Mal", I'm ashamed to admit that made me chuckle. Is he as 'ard as his French cousin in Cannes?

(Definitely time to get out of the sun)
