Clare wouldn't dare, end up with her hand speared to the table with a fork otherwise ;D

That would be especially cheeky too since I made them! :P

Oh, of course... Shrove Tuesday! Took me a while to figure it out. Pancake Tuesday is no big deal over here,  for some reason.

It was my new Spanish partner's first pancake day, wasn't too keen on the traditional lemon and sugar but preferred the local honey on them and said they went down a treat.   :)

Not keen on lemon and sugar myself, prefer lemon and honey :) Also had sliced banana and Nutella in some too :D

Favourite though is to wrap a whole Mars bar up in a pancake and microwave for 30 seconds - goes all gooey and fudgey inside :thumbsup:

Yuk. Sugar.... you folk over there love it, don't ya?!

I certainly do, MAJOR sugar junkie I'm afraid  :-[

Yep, Lemon and Honey are my favourite topping as well, save Sugar for Tea.

You can't beat top grade maple syrup on pancakes, it's
probably dearer than Morgans Spiced. Now THAT would
go well over a  pancake. :beers:

Currents - that's a bit dangerous !

Well I had a bit of ebay gladness..
Saturday I decided to attempt to relay the track leading up to the yet still unfinished bridge sections. No track gauge searched but its hiding with my watch that I put down somewhere in August.
Searched ebay, found a guy in France selling for 2.49 including postage. Arrived first post Tuesday  :claphappy: :claphappy:
Plus this morning got back from shopping to find a box from Uncle Hatton more goodies. Had to have a beer to cebrelate.
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

I didn't go to the pub this evening so I spent the beer money on a couple of BR Blue books. I figured that getting a modelling magazine is hit and miss for the prototype stuff I really want to read, and a book is only the cost of a few magazines...

Just 4 more unpainted siphons to finish off the "dodgy lima purchases"
I seem to have offered to do a conversion guide for these at the behest  of "Chris in Prague". Just got to bring the new delivery of wood inside the house and do other non railway tasks first... Why???? oh thats right Mrs "H".

I also bought 2 of the new Oxford releases the Royal Navy coach and the Ambulance oh and Mrs "H" selection from Oxford the coach and the panda car.

Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

 :claphappy: Had a phone row with messers Lotto about 4 weeks ago because for some unknown (even to them) my small Lotto account had been frozen. Since then though they have awarded me 3 25 prizes at the rate of 1 a week. :claphappy: I hope they are going to keep that up all year  ;D
