Let's hope I don't need my Le Creuset today! But I'm wearing it, just in case!!
I have a real 'ahhhhh factor' story here about my boy ( who was perfectly behaved in school ).
Yesterday, in his apprentice role, he accompanied his colleague on a call out to an elderly Rusdian lady's house. They've been before to sort out printers and emails etc. Anyway, while his colleague was fixing whatever it was she'd called them out for, she was talking to Mr 18 about her husband who had died. She was telling him how he was a musician and had written songs for her.
Mr 18, off his own back, sorted out some software and some computer thingy wotsits which enabled her, for the first time, since he died, to hear her husband singing to her.

Wasn't that just the nicest thing to do for someone! He was made up though because she gave him a tenner! His first tip! He's spending it tonight, on a trip to the cinema with his mates.
Right, my trip to Sainsrobbers was fruitful. If you count the strawberries on the half price cake I bought!
I also bought half price packs of good quality cooked meats - stashed in the freezer for salads and packed lunches. And the haul of the trip...
A great big whopping chunk of prime Aberdeen Angus scotch beef! Down £18.99 to £10.99 ! I snaffled it up and it's currently nestling in the freezer next to the free range Bronze turkey I got for £6 the other week. It will either be slow roasted at Easter or I may leave it till Summer to cook it on the BBQ! I'll get 4 meals easily out of it it's so big! Bargain!
Breakfast today is a marmite butty. Recipe and the ode I wrote to it, above! I might get my class to write some food poems today just for a giggle. I'll get them to make them funny!
Right, I'm going to do a little knitting as I wait for the shower. I'll show you next time. Hope your Friday is marvellous !
Lots of love from

Awwww, what a lovely thing for him to do, I can't imagine how happy the lady must be now.ReplyDelete
It really gave me a lump in my throat when he told me! XDelete
You do make me laugh! Fantastic bargain on the beef.ReplyDelete
I was very pleased with my buy!Delete
Sound lad there. An Ode to Marmite, oh yes, bring it on. I like the stronger stuff, nice and "roof of the mouth burning" thick. Yes and it has to be thick cut white bread and butter.ReplyDelete
I once asked my sister to make me a marmite butty as I was running late for college. She made it how you like it. I nearly spat it out I. The middle of a crowded common room! Too much of a good thing!!!! XxDelete
That's lovely of Mr 18 to do that. Initiative and kindness, the boy's a definite catch for some young lady out there! Great bargain from Sainsburys. Ooh I'm a 'love it' girl re. the marmite. Haven't had it for ages, now I'm going to have to go out and buy some. Not long now before you've got a full 9 days off. Being at home is lovely but there's never that Friday feeling or end of term feeling that I used to love so much. Or for that matter any more end of term nights out :( xxReplyDelete
Aww do you never go see your old work chums. I bet they miss you massively on end of term outings XDelete
I know!! Proud Mama XDelete
What a lovely thing for your son to do....bless him.ReplyDelete
OMG.....something you and I don't agree on....Marmite....yuck.
I used to live in the town where they make it....just down the road from the factory actually. The smell was gross and any washing I used to put out on boiling up day used to come in with a nasty yellow tinge to it. Enough to put you off it for life-x-
Could you buy it cheap direct from the factory? Yellow marmitey washing! How mad!Delete
Lovely thing to do, your shopping skills are recorded, let us know when the BBQ is.ReplyDelete
It'll be on that one, hot, sunny, non rainy day in Summer. Probably about the 27th April!!!Delete
Marmite on toast - my favourite breakfast. You must post your poem - it was too small for me to make out.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful son.
I will post it larger for you next post XDelete
Hope you had a good day with your group! Your son is wonderful isn't he! All due to his great Mum of course!! Happy Valentines! xxReplyDelete
*Takes a bow* Happy V Day back atcha XDelete
Love the Marmite shape of your poem. Nice touch! xxReplyDelete
