Hello Everyone and happy new week to you. Thank you for your visit and for any comments as well. Always great to hear from you.
Every Inchie Monday has 'seagull' as the theme this week and there are thousands of them where I live.
My inchies banner so far--mainly for Elizabeth who loves to see the inchies and encouraged me to update the banner. Here it is on the floor of my craft room
Adding this to Moo Mania and More--just in time for their Banners Challenge
Time for a new theme at Tag Tuesday and this time the theme 'Back to School' was chosen by Our lovely Michele.
This tag means a lot to me as it was the first time I had gone to a school in the real sense of the word. The city where I was born and lived had been badly bombed so we were moved to a new steel house on the outskirts of the city. No schools, no shops, no anything just houses. When I first reached school age we were all ages being taught together in the a community hall, then we were selected to go by bus to a far away school but that didn't last long. My mum and dad decided that education was more important than a modern house so we moved back into the city to live in my grandma and granddad's house and I finally got to go to 'my school'
Elizabeth and Bluebeard are inviting everyone to join them as always for T Day where every Tuesday you can join some of the most friendly bloggers in Blogland with a drinks related post.
Here I am having a 'quickie' meal in York. It consisted of a choice of meat/meats, vegetables and gravy all in a large Yorkshire pudding with a drink in a cardboard cup. The drink was coke. I had turkey so got cranberry sauce on the side. The place in York is called The Hog Roast. Not posh at all but they are popular so usually very busy.
Yorkshire pudding has become all sorts of weird things over the years but when I was child we had it at Sunday lunch and it was eaten on it's own before the main course. It was made in the roasting tin after the meat had been taken out. Everyone got a square of the delicious pudding with lots of thick meaty gravy. My gran used to get up at 5 am on Sunday just to mix and beat the batter to make sure it would rise enough when she poured it into the meat tin for Sunday Lunch. My daughter makes wonderful Yorkshire pudding and I buy Auntie Bessie's frozen ones :0) That means I didn't teach her everything she knows even though she says I did.
Happy T Day everyone
Love Chrissie xx
