A Right Little Burger!!!

Andy was specifically told that this year I do not want my freezers packed out with shop bought barbecue meats....you know the kind that come in snotty looking marinades that taste of nothing but Chinese Five Spice. Well granted he hasn't bought any of those...yet....but he has filled almost a whole shelf with trays of ruddy burgers that we neither want nor need as I make my own so that I know what goes into them.
Guess what he is getting for his tea tonight....lol.

Today was going to be another faffing about day but I have come down this morning to find a bowl full of greasy pots he has left soaking in the sink.....he obviously did himself a breakfast when he came in at some ungodly hour this morning.....and there is a puddle of spilt milk in front of the fridge freezer which will need to be scrubbed up before it goes sour and stinks the kitchen out.
I may well be serving time for murder before the day is out....I could really do with the holiday...lol.

I hadn't seen the rat for a few days so was hoping that the poison had done it's job but Andy saw him again yesterday. A different type of poison has been purchased so we'll see how we go with this one.

The herb table is filling out rapidly and is looking really good apart from the parsley which seems to been attacked by the little known Rubicus Tasticus beetle. She's a little monkey when it comes to fresh parsley and mint...lol.

Right....I shall go and scrub this floor and then get on with the serious business of faffing.....with a bit of pootling thrown in for good measure.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

  5. Men! Mum used to say they make the place look untidy just being in the house and I know what she means lol

    I'm not a burger fan but thomas has taken a liking to them so if I eat one it's one of a handful of meals where we all eat the same. Xx

    1. I agree wholeheartedly with your Mum Suzanne.

      Just don't get why Andy buys burgers when he knows I always have meat in that I can use to make them....grrrrrrrr!!!

  6. It's not burgers that are the problem here it's chips.Actually it's chips,wedges and waffles.The OH doesn't get that potato based products are not essential for every dinner. Worse still is a pack is never finished before another of the same is opened.Oven baked potato products are just not making their way to my plate!

    Hope ratty moves on soon one way or another.xx

    1. Give me a good old fashioned plate of proper homemade chips Chris....I reckon the nearest those products have come to a real potato is waving at the potato field as they pass by on the delivery van...lol-x-

  7. Hello Sheila, Have you been on Jill's blog Land of the Big Sky as she was having trouble with rats and seems to have got rid of them after a lot of trial and error.
    My main occupation these days is faffing and pootling, lol.

  8. I just love all of these words that you add to your posts!! I don't know what some of them mean but they still make me laugh!! I try to imagine your accent and I wonder if I'd have a difficult time understanding you. Lol!! I remember visiting Ireland years ago and meeting my husband's uncle and not understanding a bloody word he said. Met up with him a week later and understood most of what he said. I guess you train your ear to those things. I just love it!!! xo

  9. By the way, I have a question for you. What kind of meal is the "tea time" that you write about? Is that like our lunch time here in the states? : )
