Ten on Tuesday - bacon and logs

I will blog today, I will blog today...I will least I'll try. Maybe not all the way to ten but some is better than none! I've had lots of wonderful ideas for ten, only I have not written them down as I trusted my wonderful memory...

 1. For years I could not see the point of sausages or baked beans and merely tolerated bacon. However I have long since seen the error of my ways and now think all three are vital for happiness and general well-being especially as part of the culinary delight that is English breakfast.

2. On Saturday morning we did our duty and supported the local butcher by purchasing some bacon and sausages and had a proper breakfast. Even attempted making hash browns...Yummee.

 3. Fry up is a bit like fish pie, both taste absolutely delicious but sometimes you wonder if the number of pans you need to wash up afterwards is worth the effort...until you remember the existence of dishwasher and sun shines again ;)

 4. When I was growing up we had chores. The house was divided into different 'zones' and each one of us had a certain zone as their responsibility for that week. I think the washing up one was always my least favourite yet somehow filling the dishwasher was never as much chore as having to wash something up.

 5. The alarm is set to radio four but we usually turn it off very quickly (to stop me getting too excited about any of my education related hobby horses that early in the morning!) however young sir seems to think it is some sort of a morning treat to come and cuddle next to us, turn the radio back on and listen to it. He will have a shock the day he discovers other kids are allowed to watch ceebeebies...

 6. Punctuality is becoming my middle name. One month of school behind and we have been on time every morning. I wish my own teachers could see me now!

 7. We have a woodshed. Built by my amazing and ever so handy hubby.

8. We also have a cubic meter of logs to burn, stacked by my own fair hands yesterday. All 200 of them. And I only got two splinters in the process. There was a reason why the log delivery man had thick leather gloves on! My choice was between my cycling gloves (that arrived earlier that morning and were nice and shiny) or mittens. I went for the mittens...

9. Politicians tickle my sense of humour quite often (or annoy me immensely - it's either one or the other really, depending on what they are talking about!) Anyway, I found Ed Miliband's proposed vocational baccalaureate this morning quite amusing considering it was his party that was so keen for everyone to go to university to start with.

10. We are making Christmas presents for each other with my siblings this year. Wonderful idea.    Apart from I don't know what to make...ideas anyone?
