I ought to take offence but who can be bothered?
MY first grandchild has arrived. Would you like to see a picture? I’ve got plenty if you have an hour or two to spare. She is already a great beauty and shows signs of genius. We’re all agreed on that.
She was born by C-section which wasn’t part of the plan but it’s all turned out happily so thank you to the wonderful hospital staff. By rights, after such an emotional few days, I should be deeply offended by Kate Hudson. Answering one of those celebrity questionnaires in Cosmopolitan which asked “What’s the laziest thing you’ve ever done?, the actress answered “Have a C-section”.
Big mistake. You can imagine all the witches on social media taking her to task for daring to make a joke about such a serious matter. Well, I did my damnedest to be deeply offended on my daughter-in-law’s behalf but, sorry, it’s not happening. It was a joke, and even if it wasn’t why should I care what someone I don’t know thinks about anything?
I have too many important granny duties to perform to give a hoot… It’s New York Fashion Week! It’s the Michael Kors show! I don’t know why Nicole Kidman has Naomi Watts in a head lock. Keep smiling Naomi. She’ll put you down in a moment. NEW fangled fusion cooking can’t compete with old favourite comfort foods such as prawn cocktail, spag bol and chicken Kiev says a survey by the BBC Good Food Guide. The top-rated pudding is trifle which appears in 45 per cent of homes at least once a year.
Honestly, is there anyone who can resist trifle? Those layers of soaked sponge, wobbling jelly, tart fruit fragments, sweet sloppy silky custard and cream whipped light as air. Glacé cherries on top, hundreds and thousands – the full works. One of the greatest pleasures in the world has to be leftover trifle for breakfast. Yet I can’t remember the last time anyone made this supreme pud in a TV cookery programme.
