    It's Pancake Day tomorrow! Is anyone else going to have pancakes? I think I'll have some with sugar and lemon, definitely the greatest pancake topping.

    Is Shrove Tuseday 'Pancake Day' just a British thing, by the way?

    I have all the ingreds ready for pancakes after school.
    Will make the mix (eggs, flour and milk) before I walk up to school, so it can 'rest' in a cool place for a while.

    I found my waffle iron a while ago so will use this as once she is back home there will be pancakes on menu there too.

    waffle iron is dipped into the mixture and put into the thin layer of hot oil, removing iron asap. It isn't one that mix is poured into.

    The next problem will be to ask the g'daughter (and self) what is to be given up for Lent...

    A very old church in my local town has a "Pancake Bell" This rings for half an hour before midday to tell the wives to get their pancakes cooking as the men are on their way home for lunch.
    Volunteers do the ringing, it is the only time it is rung (I think - will check).

    That ringing of the bell is a great tradition! Bet there aren't many wives at home nowadays, let alone any that'd start cooking for hubby's lunch!

    I agree with Victoria - lemon and sugar. mmmm!

    Pancake Day is a Christian festival - Shrove Tuesday. It's the last day before Lent begins, and pancakes were a way of using up all the good things - milk, eggs, flour - that you were supposed to give up until Easter Sunday when Lent ends. So it's not English, it's probably in every Christian country.
    Lemon & sugar. Mmmmmmm......

    Ah, Christian. So the schools won't be having pancakes then (or do they?) All the Christian festivals seem to have been ignored in favour of 'new cultural experiences'.

    My pancakes were lovely - and the rats had some too. They love 'em!

    What do chickens like to eat best? Maud is very miserable and peers sadly at any food I poke through the fence to try to cheer her up. I just tried chickweed, which she used to love eating, and she wasn't interested.

    (It's because she and the other bantams next door aren't allowed to fly out of their pen any more. She's not ill. She should be OK when she gets used to her new home.)

    They were ruining my neighbour's vegetable patch, naughty hens.
    Lula has tried flying up at the netting over the pen several times to see if she can get through it. She and Cindy refuse to go in the shed they're now supposed to sleep in and are sleeping in the hedge instead. Maud just looks sad all day and wanders miserably into the shed at bedtime.

    I was listening to Radio 2 yesterday afternoon and they were talking of guinea-fowls and said that thye are the perfect birds to keep in the garden because they do not destry your plants and are very good guard-dogs too.
    Also, they are monogomous so a husband and wife guinea-fowl would be happy forever.

    When my niece was little she said "hossisull" instead of hospital. One evening I was babysitting and taught her how to say it. We were both really proud. The following morning when she got up, I said "tell mommy and daddy what you learnt to do last night" and she jumped up and shouted at the top of her voice ... "HOSSISULL"! Oh well, you win some you lose some.

    Ambulance and binoculars I struggle with because they are fairly similar...they become amb-leeeee-ance and bincock-leeee-ars...celery becomes ceraly for some reason :confused:

    I use a lot of odd words anyway; emu for email, peter for cushion (Peter Cushion/Cushing, see), michaelwave for microwave, frugal for funeral...sooner or later they get absorbed into family use.

    As it is a wet day lets do another random question of the day ummmm.....oh I know... What kind of hobby do you have ?? Thats not including Hencam as that is a must do !!
    I do loads of stuff as you will probably have guessed, but mostly in the winter or wet days when I can not get outside. Cross stitch, knitting, Sewing, making cards, and making a general nuisance of myself ha ha

    I am really faddy when it comes to hobbies. I can crochet a bit though havn't done any for years, knit - haven't done any since the baby blanket nearly 2 years ago! - and a bit of sewing, just things like hammocks for the rats. In fact, I'll post a picture of what I made - its very appropriate for hencam! There are 3 hammocks and a cube (close up at the bottom). They were from teatowels I got from BHS and fleece from Ikea. The rats have almost destroyed the inside of the cube on their first use - I need to do repairs before they have it again!

    oh kate they are real nice, and would have cost a lot of money if you had bought them from the shop ready made. It is amazing what you can come up with if you put your mind up to it. I can crochet as well but havent done any for a while. I love art and craft type stuff and will have a go at most things.

    Great work Kate well done indeed. You could make and sell if you had the time and inclination they are really lovely.

    I do lots of paper craft folks, I make my own cards and love doing craft stuff with grand daughter, it is lovely to spend that time together and it is such a rewarding passtime.
    Here are some of the Geisha cards I designed and made and I also do an assorted selection and I sell these locally.

    Geisha card 4

    They are beautiful cards T/Mum, I remake many of my Christmas cards and always have loads over so I give these to a cancer charity to sell locally. I also make them for family birthdays and such. The cats love all the paper cutting, sticking and such so I have to try and do it when they go to bed or are partaking of the air in the summerhouse ha ha

    Lovely cards TM and a great thing to do with your granddaughter. I'm too lazy to make them to sell, and they take me such a long time I'd never make money v time spent! I have a friend in the US who has about 50 rats so gets through loads of hammocks and I'd love to make some and send to her, but postage is so expensive its ridiculous! Still, if I'm inclined I might do it one day.
