Egg Head

For a change, we had boiled eggs for breakfast (no toast soldiers as we don’t have a toaster, but bread and butter was OK).
Actually, Maggie had been poorly in the night and eggs have always settled her tummy.
We don’t have any egg cups, so Hubby improvised by cutting down the egg carton.

It made me think of my childhood, and the novelty Noddy egg cup I had, his blue felt hat complete with little bell on the end kept the egg warm until I came downstairs to eat it.

3 egg cups

These guys were the nearest image I could find to my Noddy, but here are a selection of others which I found amusing.

egg trainAs a kid, the yellow yolk put me off fried eggs, but if Mum boiled, poached or scrambled them, I’d clear my plate. (These days I love to dip a sausage or chip in a runny egg yolk!)
When the shell was empty, I’d turn it upside down and put a hole in the bottom.
This was to stop the witches using the shells as boats to chase the water fairies.
Oh the innocence of childhood fantasy.

Two eggs were having a bath together when one said to the other,
‘It’s getting awfully hot in here.’
The other said
‘Enjoy it while it lasts. When they take you out, they smash your head in!’

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. The only egg cups I have are for Easter – and those are purely decorative. Though if I saw some of these ones, I’m not sure I could pass them up.

    • Oh some were hilarious (and rude!). I’m hoping there will be a set of Minions available (can’t wait for the DVD release, I’m still a big kid) in which case GIMME!
