Another dull grey day and I had so many little items to annoy keep me from boredom.
The wheels on my vacuum cleaner needed de-squeaking.
Shower head needed scouring. Well that one was easy, once disconnected an hour in a bucket of water with vinegar and it scoured itself.
Bake some fresh wheaten bread. While the oven was on and only half full, a Lemon Drizzle Cake was just the thing to fill the oven and take the empty look off my tins. Bet you are sorry not to call for coffee that day!
Time for a break, a rest and to check the blogs! I also needed to sort out the printer/scanner. Why? Well, my racist printer took a dislike to yellow and red. Perhaps it had a touch of the January Blues! The ink levels said black 60% and coloured 60%. I did all the usual things like checking the print head nozzles and cleaning the print head. Nothing for it but change the Cartridge. Thankfully it is once again working well.
Now thinking I earned my rest for an hour or three what do I find? That young whipper snapper Hayles with the hole in her head nose over at Coffee Helps has tagged me for a meme. It’s going the rounds like a Norovirus! Grandad was at it first then K8, I was trying to keep well under the Radar on this one since the the only thing I can draw is a chair – and not far across the floor either!
Well the bread was not ready so I thought I would have a go at this here meme.
Here’s how it works.
This random article title is the name of your band.
The last four words of the very last quote is the name of your album.
The third picture on this page is your cover.
Ok, fingers crossed and here we go! So we have a title.
Now on to stage 2. Last quote and only the last four words, pity since quotes two or three sound better, but I have to play by the rules!
Finally the third picture on the page! What in *##*#* am I to do with that?
What I am told of course! And here it is: Dah Daaa!
So what do you think? Don’t say rubbish or my tender ego will shatter. 😉
Now go buy it and make me a fortune!
So who will I annoy today? Let me see….
No point in having a daughter if not to annoy her so Elly, and Chrisb who is always game and Ian who nobody tags, and I’m jealous ’cause he is back fresh and well from his holiday.
I don’t get tagged because clergy are like chaplains in war, they are non-combatants so don’t get shot at.
I also haven’t a clue what a meme is in this context (I thought memes were to do with genetics) and I have no idea how to draw a nice picture like yours! Is there a programme for these things?
My Remington is not as up to date as Grandad’s and the ribbon only does red or black – and sometimes the red doesn’t work because the Shift Lock is a bit loose from the time I threw the typewriter out the window at an election canvasser.
Ian, it is easy peasy! Follow the three links.
No.1 gives you the title of the Group
No.2 gives you the name of the album.
No.3 gives you a readymade picture for the CD
Stir them all together and Bingo you are in business!
NEVER visit Ian – he throws typewriters!
NEVER visit Grandad – he shoots everyone!
Think I’ll stay home.
Yes, but where do I stir them altogether? That’s the problem.
I am not good at technical things, I still haven’t worked out how to connect my Dansette to the Internet and was very alarmed to see yesterday that the Athlone frequency on my wireless will no longer work from March. I have not been able to find Luxembourg for a while, perhaps it’s the damp weather, and will now have to listen to Hilversum every morning – Bols, anyone?
I clicked on all those things and they just stayed where they were – am I supposed to copy them somewhere – I have my tube of Gloy beside me as I am currently cutting out things to stick in our parish magazine. Mr Armstrong Jones seems a very nice chap from a magazine I saw at the doctor’s waiting room.
Ian this reminds me of when I was a little girl doing homework! If I had trouble with a maths question I would ask mammy for help. “Read me the question” she would say. I would read the question and quick as lightening she came back with “The answer is XXX, but don’t ask me how I got it!
I still have glue on my fingers from all the cutting and pasting!
I just caught myself staring like a zombie at your CD cover – how did you make that excellent print?! Great job, missus!
K8 there is more to Grannymar than meets the eye!
How do you get Super Glue off a Monitor?
Grannymar – good on ye! After THAT meme, I was more than happy to be on compassionate leave 🙂
p.s. I fancy the recipe for that lemon drizzle cake! 😀
Steph, Elly and Ian came up thrumps with their versions and I am sure Chrisb will in her own good time.
So you want cake as well!!!! 😉 The Lemon Drizzle Cake is easy and will post it one of these days.
Maybe I will post a recipe once a week. What do you think? Since I have them all on computer it should be easy enough.
I’ll pop over and have a look now. No visitors staying tonight so I’m freeeeee!
Weekly recipe sounds great 😀
Feet up Steph while you have the chance!
Great job and recipe, GM.
Like Ian, I would be frightened to death of the meme creatures.
Thank you WWW Might start a weekly foodie post.
Why wasn’t I invited to coffee and Lemon Drizzle cake? 🙂 Wow..This looks like a fun meme. I may do it just for the heck of it. 🙂 Great meme, Grannymar.
Very good Grannymar! I am hoping you might share your bread recipe? Am trying to convert from white flour to wholewheat and would love all the help I can get! I thought I was subscribed, but apparently it was to your old site… so apologies if you’ve already posted it!
JD ~ your coming to Ireland in April right? Might have Lemon Drizzle cake then. Have to look after a real Toyboy! 😉
I look forward to seeing the meme at the hands of a proffessional! 😀
Deborah ~ The soup was the first recipe I ever posted. With the response I think I’ll do it once a week.
