the spoils of a childhood spoilt

although i have not yet turned 21 – roll on tuesday! aheh – i have garnered a wonderful haul of presents. adding to the ones from my lovely university buddies, my parents have now furnished me with my Special 21st Birthday Watch, which is pretty bling, the complete delia's how to cook [rick – we shall be eating well next term; apparently you can stuff brioche with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon without invoking the apocalypse], and a powder blue hangbag shaped like a watering can [golly, really, is all one can say to that, and it's not as cool as the one i wanted, but it makes me look horticultural and that's a first].


being in the house has its drawbacks. the toilets are a different height, so every bathroom visit is scored by a single yelp as i half-fall onto the bowl. bedtime is much earlier, the house is shut up and silent by ten and i am left to wander it like a ghost. most annoyingly, sunday dinner is delicious but does not come with the requisite five helpings of stuffing. ah well. the internet is speedy and the computers are virus-free, it's warm and clean and we have big tvs with satellite, and joy, coleslaw in the fridge. and cake. time for cake!

  1. Go Delia! I think we'll have to have a crack (crack hehe) at her meatballs. I need some of that tomatoey, garlicy, meaty goodness. I think we should start stuffing things more regularly, it sounds like fun.

  3. Apparently Delia was quite the fox when she was younger.

    And she owns Norwich football club.

    There ends my knowledge.

  4. Fun stuff…I am a total failure on sending things due to weird work hours. I have a card but it is not yet stamped…you will get it…I promise.


    Sounds like fun being home…*tries not to be jealous*

  5. she also knows a lot – and by that, i mean FAR TOO FUCKING MUCH - about eggs.

  6. Before she came along I didn't know that there was so much to know, fascinating stuff.

  7. She sure does know a lot about eggs. I know what you mean about the silence of house at 10pm being odd. Also our house is particularly small so I have to tip toe everywhere and try and stop the doors from creaking to their hearts' content.

    However my home has no Sunday dinner (stuffing is so yummy), no speedy internet (or indeed, internet at all at the mo), no satellite, HAS a bare fridge and HAS a virus riddled computer…hmm, home actually not that great!
