Worry ye not - in Paul's safe hands

Yep, I've been left home alone to fend for myself while Debbie has gone to Nottingham for a couple of days. And you know what that means - the blog is mine so stand by your cholesterol! I know you all get worried when Debbie doesn't blog and I've had an email from Carol (super-knitter) checking up on me already...

What can possibly go wrong? I have my list of jobs to do: feed the chickens - done (there was some blueberry and strawberry plants that seem to have magically grown in pots outside the back door, the chickens really liked them).

What next, oh yes one of my favourite jobs - breakfast!

"You know where the Special K and Fruit 'n' Fibre is Paul for your breakfast?"

"Yes Dear, in the cupboard" - and that's exactly where it's going to stay!

So to all the hungry folks out there, I'd like you to be safe in the knowledge that I am (just) able to feed myself. Voila, the scene is set:

and there's more. Could this mere morsel sustain a high octane man? I think not. The pierce de resistance and proof of male skill and dexterity is yet to follow:now we're cooking on gas - well electric actually, but you follow me right?

Enter stage right the main event...

But wait, what is that noise I hear? Could it be the patter of 'tiny' feet and the sound of engines starting to rev and sat navs being programmed for Barnacre Alpacas in Northumberland?

Those sounds must stop now. Messrs Patou-man, Bearman and Rawlins - turn those engines off now and go back to your weekend duties and be happy and content in the knowledge that...............................
You're too late and I'm full. Take care all and enjoy the sunshine!

Nice looking breakfast Paul, I assume it was followed by a pub lunch, then a boozy evening whilst waiting for the Vindaloo?

Absolutely no knitting done what so ever Carol - the stapler is broke for starters.

Cooker cleaned and washing up all done!

Good work Paul, I'm a great believer in preperation, preperation, preperation, and you can't go far on an empty fuel tank, important with the list of chores you must have had (ironing excepted)!
