I was rudely woken up at 3.30am the other night with a bang and a crash. Suky blearily opened her eyes to see why I was switching on lamps and leaping out of bed at such an ungodly hour and then put her head back down and resumed her snoring.
It's a good job she did as in the living room there were little bits of glass everywhere and my lovely family photo collage was upside down on the floor. I picked everything up, rinsed out Suky's water bowl which was nearby and then started hoovering up all the little bits. Housework at 3.30am … eugh, it's bad enough during the day!
The next morning I took the photos in the mount out of the frame and tried to remove the broken glass so I could take it to the framers in Garstang to get some new glass fitted, no joy!! The glass was very firmly glued between two strips of wood and not risking to cut myself and still not get anywhere I took the decision to wrap the whole thing up carefully and put it into the big bin outside.
How annoying a frame that just cannot in anyway be repaired, what a waste of resources!!
So I have kept the original frame paper for a size guide and will look out for a replacement in the local charity shops. A rude awakening and a recycling disappointment.
I was slightly cheered up though when I was shopping in Aldi for my Challenge next week and found these for just £1.19 a pack. Of course I had to buy a box to try for my tea.
I cooked two as they seemed quite small in the box … but they grew and grew in the oven, so next time I know that one will be perfect for an easy lunch. They are pretty tasty, not quite as good as the Greggs ones, but almost.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
