Scary breakfasts and desperate measures



I have not long returned from a super day out, a meet-up with people I would never have known if it were not for blogs!  I met up with Penny of 'The Hen House' and Ann of Johnny Jumps Up, along with Penny's lovely daughter Jess.   We travelled to Winchester for a visit to the Christmas Market, which I have to say was a little disappointing.  Just as well that the company and conversation more than made up for it!  Hopefully we will get together again soon!

As I have to go out again shortly, this has to be a super-fast post.  So I will share with you the tortured faces of my breakfast...


This was what I was met with every morning recently, from a particular batch of bananas!  I'm glad to say that just as I was reaching the point where I could no longer face such gloom-laden visages, a new bunch of bananas landed in the fruit bowl,  and my breakfast have since been guilt-free!


And the note recently left on our kitchen worktop by some house-elves...


PS The house-elves say you may copy this notice if it is of any use to you and you are not fortunate enough to have your own elves to put such a thing up...

  1. Sadly, my magic chamber has no door, just a wet hollow. I fear that if I copy your notice my cupboard would fill with dirty dishes until the last mug screamed...but thanks for the thought...said the mug! xx

    1. It WAS getting to the point where I felt I needed not to look at the slices before popping them in my mouth!

  3. Poor bananas!!

    I was sorry to miss out on meeting up with you girls today, but I was just feeling too grotty. However, I'm glad I didn't bust a gut to get there to do Christmas shopping, sounds like I'd have come away empty handed :(

    You have very polite house elves!
