Ok here we go round Ten of Alphabet Thursday
Thank you to Jenny Matlock for this inspirational blog.

23rd May 2015
Dear Reader  
I have been atrocious at blogging recently and to be honest I am struggling with a theme for this round the problem I have is that I have been asked not to blog about my grandsons well no photographs at least.
So what should I do then?
I want to be followed so I have to be consistent as well as entertaining to you the reader. 
Wow I have just had a thought (rare I know), how about I share with you week by week people or things that are important in my life?
Well I guess I wont know your opinion on this until I actually start posting .
I am having no theme nothing cheesy I promise , ok maybe I cant promise that. I will deliver this and that from my life.
Faith ,Family and Friends.
I hope you enjoy this eclectic mix of my life

Anyway here goes I have an amazing 2 year old grandson called Arthur William .He is a bundle of mischief . He is Adored by All who meet him As I am sure you would if you met him .
He has an older brother who I will introduce at H .
Arthur is tall at 18 months he was predicted to be over 6ft tall no one is surprised by this thou as his father is 6ft 4 and Aunt 6ft 2 in fact no one on this side of the family is less than 5ft 6 1/2
I know this post is short on colour but I don't have any photos to share sorry .
I promise I will do better next week.
Must go want to read as many posts as I can
Have a great week

Curry Chat and Crisps

I have a friend who I have known for a good few years ,we met when her daughter Olivia joined Rainbows , Rainbows is the youngest section of the girl guiding movement in England 
At the time I was the unit leader
Tiffany and I got on well and she was the lady that I entrusted my daughters wedding dress adjustments to .
We lost touch for a number of years albeit for intermittent Facebook contact  This all changed when Tiffany moved back into her home on the same road that I live on.
Last nights activities came about when I discovered that Tif was a great Curry maker I asked her to teach me I provided the meat and dessert well half the dessert
The following photographs shows our evening .

I arrived to an organised layout of ingredients  looked like the set for a cookery show

Serious stuff first, what I omitted was the mug of tea I had first Honest
Tricky stuff my first instruction was to stir the onions ,wine in hand this was passed
Tiffany then did something totally alien to me She followed a recipe
Next came the careful addition of spices, I was not trusted for this part so I carried on drinking  
Next the greenery wow the fragrance entering my nose was amazing
Oh heck now I had to add the tomatoes whilst stirring and trying to drink my wine that was getting warm and warm Rose is never good
The Chef needed to have a quick look and again the fragrance wafted through the room
The last part was to add the Coriander
Rice Cooked best plates and bowls out
Look at the rich colour (color for my American readers)
Finally on the plate
The Chef and Sous Chef ready to tuck in
Well I would like to say thank you to Tiffany and whilst having lots of fun I have genuinely got the bug for making my own curry My Turn next

100 words aboutfreedom


France in tears flowing like the River Seine lost freedom

Realities hit throwing the hardest punch where it hurts in the heart of freedom

Eyes not seeing the atrocities on their way cunningly planned to destroy their freedom

Eiffel Tower standing tall observing from above the carnage bellow stealing the countries freedom

Despair landing with a thud in buildings and roads again denying freedom

Over the time and future wounds will heal buildings be  repaired but no healing for loss of freedom

Mourning replacing laughter freedom gone like a loved one murdered slain in the name of faith. Freedom

This is my contribution to 100 word challenge for grown ups . I have not added any pictures because simple black on white is more respectful.
