Well, tonight as I was cooking tea (peppered steak, mashed potato, veg and gravy for those who might wish to know).
Anyway, there I was peeling the potatoes. The last of the bag
Now these potatoes came straight out of the ground (yes KNOW they all do - I was brought up in the country doncha know :) and were still covered in mud.
So, before peeling them I gave them a bit of a scrub.
One of those suckers shot straight out of my hand (like a bar of soap through the air) and clocked the cat (who, at the time, was busy eating a sock in the washing basket) on the head!
Bear (he of little brain) went down like ........... well,kind of like a sack of spuds really .....
Seriously, I may not be a huge fan of that
Actually, it's hard to tell if any real damage has been done.
Sure he is just sitting in the kitchen staring intently at the dogs water bowl.
But to be honest, he spends quite a lot of his time staring gormlessly at stuff anyway ....
Hmm, I shall go and poke him just to set your minds at rest .....
I was planning a bit of a ranty post - I don't think I've done one of those for a while but it kind of got over taken by the potato/cat story and I'm feeling slightly less ranty now.
I did have a bit of a ranty bender yesterday though. I did something I've been wanting to do for a while but not had the courage to.
I defriended all those people on FB that are there because either they asked me to be their friend right at the beginning (even though I don't know them) and I was desperate not to look like a billy no mates.
I still don't know them, never comment on their posts or they on mine and so, they are GONE.
I also defriended a couple of people who I'm not really sure ARE my friends or have my best interests at heart.
Now I tend not to post anything very inflammatory on FB but even so, there are some people who don't need to know my business or who might want to share it with others when I'd really they rather didn't.
HOW paranoid do I sound?? (Well, if they stopped talking about me I might not be ;)
So, 11 people got the chop but I also added a new friend and somehow, I think my new friend is probably worth more than the eleven I culled.
I was wondering which blog to link to today and then I came across this post by Carmen at A Life Less Ordinary.
Read her quick before she blows herself up or something (no really, she MIGHT!)
