Who to tag? I'm trying to find out who hasn't already been tagged and who hasn't already done this meme. Apologies if I make a mistake, you're under no obligation to do it, or do it again! I blame 'Baby Brain'!



  1. I completely relate to the favourite fruit list, to improve on any pudding though it's best to remove the fruit before eating...Thanks for the tag! MH

  2. I wish I could speak another language too. Oh well. Maybe my girls will!

  3. I will get round to this at some point this week! Thanks for the tag!

  4. AMM, My O level French only gets me so far!

    Dancinfairy, looking forward to reading it!

  5. I like the first thing you're looking forward too...my son is STILL obsessed with looking in bins!!

  6. Clarey, If I say 'leave the bin alone' once a day, I say it a hundred times!! x

  7. The trick to a perfect yorkshire pudding is to A) but a little bit of water in the mixture, and b) get the pan and the oil as hot as possible before you pore the mixture in.

  8. Hi there Dan, thanks for the advice. When it gets a bit cooler I'll cook a roast dinner and attempt a yorkshire pud!
