Rrrrow~! Just got this little cutie from the local cats protection charity shop.  The ladies in there are very sweet though their whole conversations consist of complaining and they weren’t very helpful in telling me how to adopt a cat.

MMMum’s homemade custard, I would happily eat a giant bowl of custard with just a ginger biscuit melting away in there.  Soooooo goooood, we had custard and traffic light tart at junior school.

When I have children I’m going to make it all the time, i might not serve it in formed prison style plastic trays though…

Ooo, I remember one day going back for seconds and being greeted by my mum across the counter, she worked at my school for  few weeks as a dinner lady and then moved to another one.  She was there long enough to remind the ladies that I / we could have seconds mains but not the pud.
