  1. I like your choice in windshirts? The Kaza is fab.

  2. Yeah it's cool.
    What about Kings of Leon, macaroni cheese or pink trainers? :o)

  3. Kings of Leon I can take or leave.

    Macaroni cheese of course is a staple, I make it with spinach through it and like to sprinkle some grated cheese on top after it comes out the oven, pop it under the grill till the cheese melts and serve with several glasses of Medoc. See; no buckfast ;o)

    Not sure about pink ones but I run up mountains in red sneakers with orange bits on, does that count?

  4. Red 'sneakers'!!! Coooooool...

    Nope don't do spinach but melted cheese on top is a must. yum!

    I've just had another thing I LIKE - midnight feast, Ambrosia creamed rice. (a wee mini microwave pot - yum!).

    Are you on a weird shift being up this late!? I'm allowed, i'm on holiday! yay!!!

  5. I'm back dayshift in the morning but I've just come off'f nightshift so I'm struggling to get to sleep.

    I wish I was on holiday but as usual when the factory shut's for holiday's they expect us maintenance engineer types to go in and carry out the bigger jobs we dont normally have time for. :o( mind you, I get day's in lieu and overtime so I'm not complaining too much.


Thank you for reading. Leave a comment! I read them all x
