Before we get on to the main attraction, I’d like to self- certify myself as a domestic goddess. This weekend I’ve cleaned the fridge*, black leaded the hob grate and the log burner and baked 2 cakes, it would have been three cakes but I had to nip out and save the world.
Here he is, Spud the dog, toasting his toes and tum in front of the Aga (so much for being the all weather dog, had he become, like the rest of his litter, a working dog, he’d have had no such luxuries.
He’d be living outside in a kennel.
* the oldest ‘best before’ item found in the back of the fridge? Margarine August 2010, and no, I didn’t use it in the cakes, I’ve put it out for the birds.
