Bert and I also had a difference of opinion about egg donations. We like to give eggs to our friends yet I also like to be able to make an omelette or a cake using free range eggs. I was delighted to find, on returning from picking Martha up from the school bus, that my new Magimix replacement bowl had arrived in the post. Far less delighted to find that, in my absence, Bert had given away all the eggs. So, no point in keeping those leftovers for a Spanish omelette and out the window goes any plans for a cake. We had the same discussion a week previously but when I speak I hear sounds coming out of my mouth something like this,
Bert, I'd like you to make sure that there are always six eggs in the egg rack. More than that then give them away to your heart's content.
He hears this,
Drone, drone, drone, blah-blah-blah, yadda-yadda-yadda.
So that was the past few days, minding dogs, arguing about eggs, bit of gardening. I sure do lead an exciting life.
