You couldn't make it up...



I met a very interesting man this weekend, we talked, laughed and really connected. He asked me for my blog address as he wanted to read me. I didn't give him it. I was being on my very best behaviour and was trying to be the cool, witty, collected and sophisticated version of me that I can, on occasion, pull off. You know the one that you show to people you want to impress. The blog version of me tends to show me at my least glamorous self.

And as if to prove my point...

This morning I was greeted by this sight within my fridge. A Whittards of Chelsea carrier bag containing 2 tubs of Flora Light with a note stapled to it, reading " I am butter, Please love me xxx"

Welcome to the randomness that is my life, enjoy, smile and be grateful it's not yours !!

Forget the Flora Light, life's just not worth that terrible taste. Go for the butter so much better. Yes I know it's not good for you but a little in moderation can't do a great deal of harm can it. After all who has ever heard of Flora Light on crumpets?...Now butter on crumpets you're talking.....

The joy of butter especially on hot toast....far better than the low fat rubbish

Butter is much healthier than low fat tripe with all its hydrogenated trans fats that KILL!

I am intigued about the man. Will you be seeing him again? And how lucky he will be to get to know you, warts and all, if he gets the chance!

Hope your Easter break is going well. We're aving a fab time.

Mannanan - ok you've sold me, hot buttered crumpets, yummy !

Sue - he didn't get near the house so def not him !

mr-stu - I agree, I'm going to go buy some butter, I'll just have to run more !

mob - if I let a prospective date read this blog, would it be a natural selection process I wonder ? and c'mon mobsy, everyone who reads this knows how bad I am at relationships !

Lisa - come on , it's me, I love how all my blog buddies think I can do the man stuff !

NB - I think not, you know how dysfunctional my relationships seem to get
