When my mother phones, and asks me if I've been up to anything, would be nice if she'd allow me to say more than one brief sentence before spending the next half hour talking about every single thing that has happened to her the previous few days.

@RolloTreadway This is EXACTLY what my mother does. Even if I try to say something, she talks over me. Is it a general mother thing, do you think?

@purplepadma @RolloTreadway I’m not sure if that’s better or worse.

You know how December is all about mince pies, and the run-up to Easter is all about hot cross buns?

There should be a special baked treat for every month in the year. Why isn't there? Why am I not enjoying a delicious April Cake or Spring Bun or whatever?

@sheepnik @RolloTreadway Lardy cake for June please, because that’s when we used to go on holiday to Devon and eat it.

@helenclayton @sheepnik @RolloTreadway February is my birthday month, so may a nominate a much-missed French favourite of mine - flan.

@helenclayton @sheepnik @RolloTreadway aw, thank you. Clafoutis is lovely too, what month is cherry month?

@thebaywindowgirl@toot.community avatar

@helenclayton @sheepnik @RolloTreadway I don’t think so. Any summery suggestions? Maybe something involving fudge ?

@helenclayton It was very entertaining. The sheeps kept trying to eat the verge grass rather than head along the road in an orderly fashion.

Does anyone know of a generally accepted gender neutral alternative to saying ‘man-made’ please? Ta.

@thebaywindowgirl@toot.community avatar

@Wen that was my first thought, but it’s in the context of manufactured goods, so not quite a fit.

I'm sorry, I know I've picked this song for various hashtags on a fairly regular basis - but if the #TuneTuesday theme is songs that give you #goosebumps, then I can't possibly overlook it. It's a piece that gives me goosebumps upon goosebumps.

The Unthanks - Mount the Air (live, with the eleven-piece band they were touring with at the time)

@Wen @RolloTreadway @DavidTanner We’ve seen them in various permutations, from a minimal acoustic set through to a chamber orchestra, and they’ve never been less than absolutely breathtaking.

I spent most of my walk today complimenting sheep on the excellence of their lambs

Do you know what I’m going to do? No, you don’t, so I’m going to tell you. I’m going to take a bath, then I’m going to put on my brand new pyjamas which are very soft and a pleasing cerise colour, and take a nap in bed. I’ll skip the pub tonight.

@thebaywindowgirl@toot.community avatar

@purplepadma This sounds like a most excellent plan, which could only be improved by the addition of snacks.

thebaywindowgirl,
@thebaywindowgirl@toot.community avatar

@purplepadma We have more mini eggs at work than we can possibly use, and I have their expiry date noted in my diary 🤣

Quite apart from the utter ludicrousness of frothing about a scone recipe, wtf is going on in the picture on the right? That dough is cookie thickness, there’s no way it’s going to rise into a decent scone.

I have personally toasted getting on for 100 toasties today, and I smell of cheese.

I was accompanied on my walk by Willow, who belongs to our neighbours. We flushed several pheasants, spotted some deer, and both got rather muddy because, yes, it’s raining again.

Time to start cooking dinner. Frankly I am not in the mood and would rather eat crisps.

@purplepadma Could you not just eat the crisps?
