Fame in name only

This week’s provocative question from Fandango is this:

If you could, would you want to be famous if it meant sacrificing your personal life and privacy? Why or why not?

Today is Wednesday 30th November

The last day of the month, and December starts tomorrow.

The day is chilly and grey, but at least it’s not raining. No sign of the sun but washing had to be done so it was up to the launderette today to get it dry. It looks like their prices have been increased again as it is costing more for less time.
Roll on Summer!

This picture shows a large passenger airplane on the ground surrounded by over grown trees.

The foragers were excited with their find.
They attached twines and vines to the wings and nose, dragging the plane into the small clearing in the heart of the forest.
The craft was empty, totally devoid of life, the passengers and crew long gone.
The trees would provide a canopy of protection from anyone flying overhead.
No-one would think to look for it here.
And even if they did, by the time it was stripped of everything of value or use, there would be little left, another unexplained vanishing in what some call The Bermuda Triangle.

Toy Boy

When he pointed that out, she’d said she was an ordinary Jane Dow, not some pop star with oodles of money to have a tuck here, there and everywhere. Continue reading

5 Ways You Enjoy French Bread

Dr Tanya is our host for the 5 Things Tuesday challenge, You can join in here

Hubby and I both love garlic bread, though he can’t eat it anymore because it’s too hard for him, even dunked in soup.
When we used to treat ourselves to a pizza, garlic bread was always included, but it never survived getting out of the car park as we used to eat it as soon as we got back to the car. Always best hot!

Today is Tuesday 29th November

I am getting to know every lump, bump and dip in the road personally on the journey to A&E. Hubby woke up with horrendous pain in his stomach again and I got him there at 9am having caught the rush hour for the last half hour of our journey.
After the last three visits, it’s pointless hanging around, so I came straight home. The liver we had so been looking forward to for lunch had been put in the freezer for another day so I hope it will be OK. I bought a baguette roll and will have bacon and mushrooms in it.
