Calculators are dead good to add hard sums up with, but I’ve just learnt how to make words on mine – how BRILLIANT is that?
I can spell BIBLE and BLOB …..
……. and GIGGLES and HELLO. There are lots of other words you can make too – but I don’t do rude ones.

Just when you think that life can’t get any better something happens and you realise that it can and does ……
It ticks all my foodie boxes, and look what’s coming next, Marmite cheese spread ……. I can't wait to spread it on my floury bap. I intend to badger the village Tesco Express until they get some on their shelves.
I love Marmite cashews, but they are quite expensive and I have to save hard to buy a packet and so far I have only found them in Sainsbury’s.
I am also partial to Marmite rice cakes and crisps. However, I can take or leave Marmite breadsticks. I wonder if I could get a job as a taster at the Marmite factory?

Tristan made a suprise visit to Wolverhampton yesterday, he said he had to pick up some new studs for his rugby boots and as he was passing, he offered to assist me while I am helping out in the Reprographics Department – but he was a bit of a hindrance really ….
I found him hiding under the toner shelf ……. first I spotted his head poking out …..
and then Molly’s head popped out too ......
They were trying to make me jump and had planned to leap out and yell "BOO" if I hadn't spotted Tristan first – what are they like? However, I did have to shoo them out after, as I had paperclips and elastic bands to count out and share amongst the staff, I didn't want to start an international incident if they weren't in pigeon holes by the end of the day!

It was a good job Angela Rippon and a full camera crew weren’t behind me me when I went up into the attic, because they would have found absolutely nothing to take to auction!
It was quite a struggle to get up there.
And after all my struggling to get up the ladder all I found was an old computer steering wheel thing
An old empty trunk and a child's wicker chair.
No objets d’arts anywhere.
Angela would have been so disappointed, the BBC would have wasted TV license payers money and I have no money to take my family to Alton Towers! As Doris Day has been known to say or sing "Kay Sir Ra Sir Ra" .......

Today I am lost in my thoughts.
I like marmite on my toast in the morning, but I also a mug of Bovril at Wolves on a match day ……… but which is better?
Hi Angie - to answer your question ..... vegemite - ugggghhhhhhhh - I find it has a strange glutinous texture and there is something about the flavour, I bought it once just to try - yewwwwwy -

Tristan has gone back to Wales as he has heavy rugby commitments, but he likes to keep in touch with Cyril by postcard.
Cyril isn’t very good with joined up writing, if he used as much concentration on his reading and writing as he does on Jeremy Kyle there would be no need for him to ask me to help him read it.
Tristan has very good writing because he is posh and applies himself
Cyril hasn’t been to the seaside yet, perhaps in the summer ….. he is hoping that one day Jeremy Kyle will do a seaside special!

I am feeling a tiny bit nauseous at the moment as I have just drunk five mugs of hot chocolate – but I have had so much fun …..
I found this BRILLIANT set of stencils that puts lovely patterns on your hot chocolate or coffee – I’m not sure about putting them on a cup of tea though ….
I’ve put a swirl, hearts, stars and musical notes on my drinks – the musical one made me hum “I’m drinking up my hot chocolate” in my head, to the tune of White Christmas

Yesterday I was so full of the wonder of my piece of volcano (and pumice stone), that I forgot to mention my other Icelandic gift from the Young Ladies at school. …….
They also bought me a big bag of Icelandic toffees, how BRILLIANT is that?
I have to admit, I did check the packet for dust and ash, but as it was a sealed bag, there was no real risk of volcanic contamination.
I have shared them out between all my friends so they too can enjoy a flavour of Iceland…….
…… which is mainly liquorice.

I have been a little tense over the Easter holidays because some of the Young Ladies at school have been to Iceland as part of their Geographic studies, mum said she had included for terrorist activity in the risk assessment but had underplayed the possibility of a volcanic eruption !
But, they have returned safely ……. and look what they have bought back for me…….. some lava from the volcano, (I won’t even attempt to name it). I am filled with such awe and wonder, this has got to be the best present I have ever received.
I just can’t stop looking at it, I am so lucky……. but I hope the removal of this small and seemingly insignificant piece of rock hasn’t in away accelerated or exasperated the events of the past week or so.
...... And it may be my overactive imagination but I am convinced it’s still a little bit warm………
