Eat Your Heart Out Miranda!

C – was wondering what you are up to today, are you in town rummaging through those sale rails?

S – Sorry for late response but have been changing over the house after the Christmas Holiday and forgot to take my phone.

C – everyone seems to be incommunicado today. Maybe it’s the big clear up after Christmas. All those jobs we need to get done before going back to work on Monday. Not a great thought. I never fell like I am back to normal until the kids go back to school. Have just had a debate with Pheoboe who is moaning again about me spending too much time blogging. She says that I am like Tilly from the comedy show Miranda!!! I have never watched it so had to ask for an example. The response came rather kirtly, that when I use the word “incommunicado” I sound like her when she says “delicoso” which is supposed to mean delicious. What do you think.

S – Yes I think I can see the similarity!!

C – Well I can’t. I see myself much more like the talented, successful and funny Miranda but definitely not the silly side kick. Did you hear Miranda on Desert Island Discs this week, very amusing?

C – by the way exciting news I have discovered the sender of the Christmas Hamper?

S – apogolies but cannot find a picture for todays blog as internet down and useless husband has taken to his bed with man flu.

C – typical, if you want a job doing, do it your bloody self as you can never rely on a man!!

The Wine Wankers

seppelt original sparkling shiraz and dominos pizza wine blog great nice best wine online wine wankersI still clearly remember the first time I actually enjoyed sparkling shiraz.  It’s one of those moments etched into the crevices of my mind.  I probably remember it so well not only because of the enjoyment I had but also because I was humbled.  My approach to the subject of sparkling shiraz had been both arrogant and ignorant and I got pounded by the experience.

C – By popular demand from one of our loyal followers we have been asked to pass on some of our handy cleaning tips, a bit like Aggie and Kim. I have often been heard to crow that “I have the equivalent of a first class honours degree in cleaning”, sadly due to the amount of time I have spent doing it. Today’s cleaning tip is how to clean your windows perfectly. Purchase any window cleaning product, shake well and apply evenly to glass. Scrunch up newspaper and rub off all the window cleaner thoroughly. Stand back and admire your handiwork; smudge free windows every time. A quality news paper such as The Times or The Telegraph always achieves better results!!! Watch this blog for more cleaning tips. Please let us know if you find them useful.

We have been neglecting the cultural side of life lately, largely due to the demands on our time since entering the “Blogging World”. One of the ladies I “do for” suggested a visit to town to see War Horse. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it whole heartily, it kept us on the edge of our seats all evening; a great production all round –
