Yum. I look at that picture (above photo) and my taste buds start going. :p
Oh, I’m trying to eat healthier with more fruit and veg but I can’t afford to do it often.
My weight has so ballooned since the injury I have palpitations I may squash all 7 dogs in a single sitting-down manoeuvre. Goodness.
You’d think that living out in the ‘sticks’ (where I hail from; Norfolk, England), I’d be scavenging from the nearby fields. Alas, I fear the bollocking* from an angry-faced farmer as the wheels of my mobility scooter get stuck in the mud…
This was last night’s dinner. I managed to cook it after driving Mum home from the doctors. We waited almost TWO HOURS because the dumb doctors messed up her prescription. Oscar Dandelion had come along – as he is apt to do – and, so, made a new friend inside the pharmacy. An elderly gentleman who gently patted his head and told me the story of the shitz-stew he’d inherited from his mother. Unfortunately, the little dog isn’t so mobile these days – a bit like me and his human dad; except, I don’t believe dogs use walking sticks. Even disabled ones.
Now, I have that odd picture in my mind.
(No. I am not on any strange new pain-pills).
Photos below: 1) my dinner; 2) John’s. Mum had the coconut chicken stir fry from the night before.
Disclaimer: I do not take responsibility for (perhaps) not cooking as well as Jamana’s Helen.
He was in love with Oscar, he couldn’t stop petting and talking nicely to him. I said to him, “We’ve got 6 of those at home – and a Jack Russell!” He didn’t know what to say.
We stood near the pharmacy counter; him leaning heavily, awkwardly, on his walking cane; me, with well-behaved Oscar in my arms. He told me he’d had small dogs all his life. I looked at him and thought, this could be me in 30 years time. Except with boobs and lipstick. And more than one dog waiting for me at home.
*bollocking = a term we use here for being yelled at.
