Lilli the dog like the children doesn't eat anything green - unless it's sweets. She loves carrots and apples and bananas... but if you give her a grape or an olive or a piece of cucumber you'll find it behind the sofa or on the floor of my study, her favourite place to eat.
Yes, you. I'm talking to you missy... I don't like olives under my desk.
Actually she's not ignoring me, she simply doesn't understand English. Lilli only understand Italian, after all it's me and her all day long... I have to talk to someone, it would be weird if were talking to myself, right?
I've been trying to bake blueberry muffins following this book:
Unsuccessfully. I was warned that some recipes might be a bit iffy... but I'm not writing it off yet... I'm planning a cupcakes stand off soon... 'high-noon cupcakes style', on one side of the street The Hummingbird Bakery on the other The Primrose Bakery. Watch this space. Flour will be spilled.
And my other piece of news... Mr M relented and put together his birthday present (last year's one...), we now have
this. Five little stripey things (and in my case five more mouths to feed as nobody else EVER remembers)
But you know what... who knew that something as quiet as fish could be such company... I'm absolutely loving it.
