Ah Buggar...


See how nice dinner looks on the new plates, and simple fritata and salad, but on these plates it almost looks restaurant quality (ok, well, that's a stretch, but it does look good)...

Onto other things though...

I stuffed up... We've been trying to organise a small hamper for Rach, who had her little girl a couple of weeks ago. What with one thing and another, illness and well, life, it took a little longer than we thought. One thing we needed to sort was getting my esky back from Jen's (I'd totally forgotten to get it from her after Sienna was born a year ago, and she had been meaning to give it back all this time, but well, I didn't even know she had it and so it never came up in conversation as a reminder, LOL)... Anyway, Jen dropped the esky around a couple of days ago and at the same time brought a half dozen cookies with her for me, from the batch she'd baked that morning and was meaning to bring more around for Rach when we knew for sure when we were taking everything to Rach's.

Well, I totally misunderstood. Thought the cookies were for Rach, put them up nice and safe away from the boys and then packed them in the esky today. Of course, the cookies were just a taste for me (Jen, being aware that I'm trying to lose weight) and not nearly the amount she would have passed on for Rach, argh! So, now, poor Jen is embarrassed about that, and I'm embarrassed about making her feel embarrassed... Gawd, I really need to listen more carefully when people talk - I was obviously distracted by my own thoughts...

Oh no poor Jen, I am sure she won't hold it against you. Gosh and here I am thinking, I hoped they froze it as I made the pasta the morning Jayne picked it up lol I am sure Rach wont even think twice about it though she seemed rather rapted and overwhelmed at getting the hamper:D BTW I just love the square plates I eye them off everytime we are in Rg's work that and a million other things hahaha

Argh! It was my fault anyway Sif - I mean, if someone brings round an esky, and some biccies, you would expect to put two and two together LOL! I need to make myself clearer next time LOL! Don't feel bad at all!!!

And I can't believe I had your esky for *a year*. I never used it, so forgot I had it LOL!

I agree with Dave, I reckon food looks better on a white plate. More appetising. We got blue plates for our wedding (10yrs ago - argh!) and the food never looked as yummy. Your dinner set is really nice!

ROFL, it was all one big misunderstanding, and then last night I was, oh no, you poor thing, you bring me biscuits and I didn't even say thankyou, and THEN I just put them up on a shelf without even looking at them!

I can't believe I didn't even realise I didn't have the esky, I thought *I* had it all that time...
