• My favourite neighbour in our little street was the victim of an armed hijack & house robbery on Monday. Luckily she was not physically hurt.
• My husband is away on business this week. I’m always unsettled when he’s not here, but more so now because of the aforementioned robbers.
• I’m sleeping in shifts; deep sleep in the early evening and site patrols in the late hours. With a cricket bat, in case. When I can’t get back to sleep, I practice cookie decorating. This baffled our security company at 2am this morning and they came to investigate. I made them coffee and gave them slices of chocolate bread.
• If a recipe specifies two layer pans, don’t try and be clever and use a loaf pan instead. You’ll end up with a humped loaf and your Facebook friends will have loads of fun out of it:
Cindy: My loaf cake looks a bit like a camel.
Melanie: Animal or cigarette?
Cindy: Animal, big hump in the middle, Chelsea thinks it’s awesome, like chocolate bread ;p
Liane: I’ll eat it blind folded if that’ll help 😀
Linda: One hump or two? ;-P
Cindy: One … is that a Dromedaris?
Linda: One of JVR’s ships?? Must have been some hump! 🙂
Cindy: Haha, which one has two humps? Does a Llama have a hump?
Linda: The dromedary has one hump. The lama does not have a hump, but spits like a Redneck.
Cindy: Ah, Googled it; the Dromedary has one hump.
Linda: That’s what I said… Look down… 🙂
Cindy: What’s a Redneck, like from the farms and new in the city?
Linda: Like from the South in the USA.. Like from.. You know you’re a redneck when your sister is also your mother, etc.
Cindy: Oh … Gomers!
Linda: Bwhahahahaha! Yep, those ones.
Brenda: My cousin Larry said his cousin Larry and other brother Larry love camel loafing.
Linda: As long as it is loafing and not toeing, it should be fine. *giggle*
Colleen: HAHAHAHAHA!! You lot are hysterical. And this all because a loaf has one lump and not toe…I mean TWO???
Brenda: I think they actually meant humping. Too much moonshine, methinks.
And, as my dear friend Charlie says, so it goes … happy hump day, everyone …
