Decisions Decisions Decisions

Early afternoon here in ‘The Shires’ and we have all debunked to the garden! A bit of a chilly mist this morning, reminiscent of those found on cold December days. The blanket of cloud gone now and the warmth of the spring sun can be felt on our faces. A simple lunch of toasted artisan (sun dried tomato) loaf and charcuterie was had, the very essence of spring and summer eating!

I had excavated the bottom of the chest freezer this morning and pulled out a 1kg box of King Prawns. I then realised that they were best before August 2017! I defrosted them and part cooked them, but then felt awkward about my choice not to have just binned them. They have sat there all of this time suspended, little blue icicles, but were they safe to eat? I asked a few people on Twitter what they thought and it was a resounding ‘Don’t Do It’, except for one lovely ladies vote of confidence – thank you for your optimism dear heart!!! But I ultimately decided to go with the majority on this occasion. If not for me, then for the lives of the children I thought.

Anyhow, I finally shaved this morning and I am starting to look a little like my new iPhones emoji! I was playing with two possible looks! My first option was that rather 70’s looking ‘Gringo’ moustache style (can I still say that) or secondly, the Jazz beard – timeless in appearance! I went for the latter!

  1. Andi, you made a good decision on not eating the prawns!
    I told my hubby to shave this morning as a beard is not his best look. ( poor dear did sigh!)
    I am going to try my hand at cutting his hair later in the day, poor dear may regret his decision to give me an okay! LOL
    Wishing you and your family a lovely day. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, I think I was a tad silly to even consider it Margie. I’m loving the jazz beard though I will have to add some colour as my salt and pepper is not really a look for me! Your Hubby is very trusting – I know he has every reason to be Margie. Just be careful he doesn’t end up with a Mohawk!

      Children are finally up to be – time to relax now…

      Have a lovely day Margie.
