There are seven wonders of the world aren’t there? Well I reckon the humble delivery driver should be one too! My theory is, not that they delivery any shaped parcel within specified time frames (like that ever happens anyway), but the fact that you can wait in for hours, and they don’t turn up. Then you pop out for five minutes and bang they turn up within a few minutes of you going out. This happened to us yesterday, we popped down town to look after our grandchildren while my daughter had her eye test done. We’d been gone in total about an hour or so, and when we got home we had FOUR parcels to collect. The thing was that because they are ‘Royal Mail Tracked’ they cannot be re-delivered and HAD to be collected. So once again another trip to town is required. So do delivery drivers have sensors or radars that alert them to people going out? Our delivery drivers are generally good, but this isn’t the first time this has happened.
Boy or boy has it been cold the last two days. Both mornings I had a look on our garden thermometer and saw it said -5 c, now while that is positively warm to people who live in -30 and lower to me it is freezing (literally). The scientists suggest we have to get used to this ‘extreme weather’ as it is a result of global warming. The thing is that in the time era of my youth, we didn’t know anything about global warming so didn’t know we had anything to change.
Finally here’s a tasty recipe I fancy trying:
Strawberry and cream cobbler
1 stick melted butter
1 egg beaten lightly
1 cup whole milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tspn salt
Punnet strawberries capped, and chopped into medium size pieces
4oz cream cheese cut into small cubes
preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter and pour into a 9 x13 baking dish.
Mix all dry ingredients, then add milk and egg to the dry ingredients to make batter.
Pour into baking dish on top of melted butter.
Then place strawberries into batter and space them out in batter. then add cubed cream cheese.
Bake for 45 minutes or till brown.
