And now for something completely different. Let’s mix it up a bit on The Waffle. We can’t go getting stuck in a rut. So here are some statements about me that even my close friends may not be aware of.. all are strange but true. The Waffle does not lie.
1 I was once offered a job by someone on a bus. I took the job.
2 I find making pastry and soufflés quite easy but jam quite difficult.
3 I quite enjoy ironing if I have plenty of time, a cup of coffee and the radio.
4 I find signs advertising events that have already passed extremely annoying.
5 I have a phobia of dogs and driving.
6 When I did my Pitmans typing exam to my horror I typed “Fail” instead of “Gail” at the top of the page. I had to go back and correct it with the old fashioned corrector key.
7 I am remarkably good at balancing on one leg. I think it may be because I have quite big feet.
8 I used to think hats didn’t suit me, now I have several of them and I love their quirkiness.
9 As a young child I used to specialise in putting honey in my hair. I believe I was also quite adept at tipping full bowls of cereal and milk over my head. Such fun!
10 I have been described as “quietly assertive”, “quaint”, “pernickety”, “a peculiar creature”, “thorough”, “too nice”, “efficient”, “a nice lady” and (my favourite) “delightful!”.
Well I hope you enjoyed the above. We must all remember to have a little laugh at ourselves every now and again. As I go to heat up an M & S chicken in red wine with rosti potatoes and petits pois, I leave you with the sunny pics from Windsor today. You’ve been delightful! Xx
I love this gate all the more because it doesn’t actually go anywhere… (I guess it used to???). I’ve never tried going through it.. maybe it is a window to another world? (Anyone else watching His Dark Materials?).
