Sunday Musings #86

I hate when I think I’m buying organic vegetables and when I get home I discover they’re just regular donuts.

– Robin McCauley Lynch


I just found this hilarious!

I don’t actually buy organic vegetables, or even any vegetables, very often, apart from the staple carrot, which I eat raw. And I’m not that keen on donuts either; they’re too greasy.

But I certainly appreciate the sentiment in the above quote. After all, however many healthy foods I buy, it’s still chocolate that I want to eat!


post script: WP glitch. Has anyone else noticed a problem trying to comment on posts in the WP Reader? I read the post and go to comment, only to find there is no comment box. Clicking on the comment icon takes you to the bottom of the post – where there is still no comment box. 

Any suggestions, or is this just me?


I Love You!

Chocolate Egg

Cadbury creme eggs were always a favourite at Easter time and I ate more than my fair share of them growing up in the UK. Of course, they are much smaller now than they used to be and, in my opinion, not quite as yummy.

You used to be able to buy these here in SA, many years ago. Then they disappeared for decades. Amazingly, last week I found one small box of them just sitting there in a local store. I haven’t been back since, so have no idea if there are any left. And I only bought three!

However, my favourite cream eggs ever, I used to buy at a Transport Cafe, when I was a kid living in the north of England. They were half a chocolate egg with the most delicious white cream inside. They stopped making them while I was still a kid, which was such a pity, as they were affordable to us. But I still remember them fondly.

Do you have a favourite chocolate egg?


Sunday Musings #85

I just stepped on a cornflake. Now I’m a cereal killer.

Just a little nonsense for a sleepy Sunday!

I love a play on words and the unexpected. Though I can’t remember the last time I actually ate cornflakes!


I also love that Autocorrect is prompting me to change ‘cereal’ to ‘serial’, confirming what I always suspected; computers have no sense of humour!

I’m glad I don’t have to hunt my own food; I don’t even know where sandwiches live.

– Anon


Since I love sandwiches, I enjoyed this quote.

And why is it that often the things you love are bad for you? I mean specifically – bread. Sadly, I have to limit bread to a treat maybe once a week.


The Midnight Loquat Run – Again!

You Little Monkey

You Little Monkey

Really Little Monkey?

You desperately want to go outside?

It’s 2 o’clock in the morning! I want to sleep!

Oh all right. Off you go. Be quick.

And just maybe tomorrow you won’t eat quite so many loquats. Leave some for Sparky the squirrel.

I’m tired of this Midnight Loquat Run; also known as Eat, Sleep, Poop!
