Sweet Eggs

When it comes to cooking dinner I only really have a few dishes; Thai curry (haven't made one of these for ages as my version of a Thai curry takes about 2 hours to make and 2 hours is something I just don't have these days); Fajitas (technically, this is cheating, as I buy the Old El Paso kits); Sausage Surprise (this is a fairly 'loose' dish. The surprise is basically whatever veg and sauces and herbs there are lying around; and, last but not least, omelette.

Last night I decided to make omelette for me and mum. It was a very tasty cheese and ham omelette which was very much enjoyed by mum and myself. But, even when you're the ripe old age of 27 there are still lessons to be learned:

I asked mum if she wanted some bread buttered. She said aye. I asked her did she want plain white bread. She said she'd take a bit of wheaten. I buttered her wheaten and left some dinner in for Pearlie. When I sat down at the table mum said:

By the way, that wasn't wheaten bread, it was treacle bread.

What mad cat baker thought it was a good idea to cunningly disguise some treacle bread as an innocent wheaten soda farl? Aw well, mum wasn't bothered. She said it tasted 'interesting'.

I was talking about omelette today ad discussing how simple yet good a dish it is. Funny,.

Dude - I can't believe you've not been to the cinema for years and years. You must take your own sweets as I reckon kids with grimy little hands touch all the sweets and that grosses me out. Oh god my OCD is ot of control I won't open the bathroom door at work without a wee paper towel so I don't actually have to touch the handle.
Weird? Me? Noooooo.

CONGRATULATIONS on being an Auntie to a real life person. You will be a grea Auntie Hannah.

Miss you!

Aw, dude, yr not weird. For one, cinema sweets are ridiculously over-priced, and two, as you say, kids grubby little snotty mitts, all over them.....ewwww! Also, the fact you can't just skin up anytime you want to, and feeling like you're an inconvenience when you go to the loo. The last film I remember seeing at the 'ma was 'The 6th Sense' with you and your moms!!! That was, perhaps, ten years ago!!!
