Egg dilemma?

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 19:07

I agree with Nut.  If they smell OK they're ok.  Omelettes, scrambled, pancakes, Victoria Sponge, fruit cake ............ shall I continue?

The only caveat is your Missus.  Make sure the eggs are cooked through or used in cakes if she's going to eat them.

Dd, one of our labs 'ate through a doorway', removing the architrave and door lining!  It was separation anxiety - a radio left on quietly on a talking channel, and my smelly old coat as a bed worked wonders.   Good luck - he'll be worth a bit of work

OH wants to know what I want for my birthday (end of Jan) - decision made - I shall give him a list of a few varieties of snowdrops I'd like and he'll order them 'in the green'   Perfick!!!

The birds have finished squabbling over the raisins and are all snuggling up in the neighbours' laurel and pyracantha hedges.
