Pressies for a new blog

George decided he liked what he is now calling 'his' blog. So while I was salivating over the world foods aisle in Sainsburys, the other half took him off to buy me pressies. 

Apparently, the below* is to save me from constantly wiping wet hands on the back of my jeans, which according to George is a particularly annoying habit, and from burning my hands on the oven using our old threadbare teatowels to rescue burning dishes get yummy dinners out.

*also proving I need a new knife, preferably one with a complete tip

However, I was a little more excited about the present that just happened to find its way into the shopping trolley. No idea how. Must be a mystery admirer.

Guess what this is for...?
A NEW NOTEBOOK!! Just for me and my recipes and constant lists of new kitchen-y gadgets and fings wot I need! All I need now is a new pen to go with it and I'll be the happiest girl alive.

Don't blame me, please. I may be a foodie but I can't help being the daughter of a an English teacher.

    1. Totally agree. I'm rather hoping a certain someone might get the hint and buy me a pen to go with it...!

  3. Gosh: the pressure of being viewed by English teachers!
    'Recipes devised from leftovers' sounds like a topic for further exploration, and perfect for students.

    1. Hausfrau - quite! I love the recipe topic suggestion - I actually wrote a cookbook for my sister when she went off to university four years ago. I'll have to delve back into it!
