The Gingernut Cover-up ?

Posted: 03/02/2016 at 13:23

Two things. Your gingerbread cake was delicious Obelixx - I esp. liked the fresh ginger in it but it was a bit of a faff to make - so many bowls and plates! However, it was well worth the making!

Second thing - Tesco's here has stopped selling McVities ginger nuts after a few weeks of being unavailable! Quelle horreur! What are we going to do now???





What type of trees to plant a long a driveway

Only problem is that 50m is a lot of trees and a lot of windfalls and apples and a lot of work clearing up! I would go for something non fruiting.

Fishing for sympathy!

Belated Happy Birthday and best wishes for your recovery! Hope there is still some birthday cake left!

Any chance of the recipe Obelixx for the sticky gingerbread? Sounds wonderful!

My neighbours are moving as well. They have been here for 8 years and are fantastic neighbours. The ones I had before them were the neighbours from hell - I am sure I would have had a nervous breakdown with them if they had not moved. I am dreading the change so can sympathise with Pansy.

Happy New Year everyone. And a plague to those cold viruses that abound and last forever!


Top bird - if you have never read it, try to get a hold of Muriel Gray's 'The First Fifty: Munro bagging without a beard' - it is hilarious!

Christmas Present Fail

The older I get the more I enjoy presents I can eat (chocolates), ones that die (flowers) and ones I can use up (candles, bath stuff etc). I don't have much space for 'stuff' (nor patience).
