How much is that fishy in the window. The one with the waggly fins....

Today, as it was still really cold outside, we went and looked at fish in a fish shop. The fish shop (not the one that sells chips) is probably the warmest place within 3 miles of our house, so itseemed like a good choice. The following photos aren't great cos I was avoiding using a flash (didn't want to be told off for scaring the fish).
And here is a fish

And here's another one, which you can't see very well, but it's the greenish brown blob with horns. And yes it does have little horns on its head. It looks rather alien-like.

And here's another fuzzy picture of a fish. I think he's smiling. Or perhaps blowing me fishy kisses?


And here's another interesting creature:



And today I made bread in the microwave. Yes I said MICROWAVE.

Ok, so I know that in the 'handbook for Earth mothers' microwaves are something akin to feeding your kids pot noodles in public. As for making bread in the microwave??!! Well that's scuppered my chances of ever getting promoted to even part-way Earth mother (and no doubt it would get me banished from the WI for the next 20 years)

Well don't knock it till you try it. And no I haven't actually tried it yet. I mean, I made it, but I haven't tasted it yet. Dh will try it for breakfast before he goes to work and if he survives then the rest of us might try it. Will let you know what it's like. If it's any good, I'll post the recipe. Only for non Earth mothers you understand...
