    What on earth is thunder and lightening ice cream?

    1. Delicious is what it is!
      It's honeycomb and liquid caramel toffee through it! Yummy!

  4. This is a delicious time wasting thing to do! I'm always up for wasting a bit of time! Not that I can do this as I'm not someone with a blog, but it's fun to read others' answers!

  5. OK Rachel ... just a few then ...
    1. Potatoes - new ones, tiny ones, like marbles, boiled with butter and real mint sprinkled on top.
    2. Craft - don't 'do' craft but some might say I'm crafy, har, har! If writing is a craft, then writing.
    3. Skirt or trousers - I love to wear a dress occasionally, but trousers for comfort (and they can be smart, too!)
    4. Favourite room - our sitting room, especially at night, with the lamps on.
    5. Carpet - hard flooring is for the kitchen and bathroom. I aim for comfort.
    6. Books read more than once - The Cazalet Chronicles by Elizabeth Jane Howard. They are my favourite novels of the 20th century.
    7. Hair - always short, pixie crop at times.
    8. Detested school dinner - took a packed lunch.
    9. Favourite ice cream - stem ginger.
    10. Least favourite veg - beetroot.

  6. PS I meant "boiled, with butter ..." The comma makes all the difference to the meaning. I didn't mean I boil them with butter, har, har!

  7. Oh gawd Rachel....that sounds absolutely gorgeous. Never heard of it before.

    Hey Margaret.......thanks for joining in.....that's fab.

  8. Sheila: Fun to read your answers.

    Margaret: I suspect we are about the same age because I also hated school dinners. Those were the days when the dinner ladies would make you sit there until you cleaned your plate. I will not eat mashed potatoes to this day due to that rule. After I told mum what had happened I was allowed to go home or take a packed lunch. Oh and I love beetroot which many people here in the Midwest USA find rather odd.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
It is much appreciated.
