Mother's Day .......... CANCELLED !!! ..........


It's Mothering Sunday today .....



Our children and grandchildren were coming over .....


I bought loads of food ..... cooked chickens. As it's Mother's Day and I have to do the cooking, I thought I would cook things to have cold so that it all could be made in advance so that I wasn't spending Mother's Day in the kitchen !!! Amongst other things, I thought that I would make .....




..... Coronation Chicken ..... 
a good old standby ... a throwback from the seventies but, tastes great and everyone seems to love it.

..... BUT .....

Our granddaughter, via our son, has got chicken pox and, our daughter is pregnant so doesn't want to come within an inch of anyone with chickenpox or has been near anyone with chickenpox so Mothers Day is cancelled !!! These things happen and it's fine but ...

..... Our fridge is heaving .....



I cut the meat from the chickens and froze most of it ... kept some back to eat ... and made chicken soup from the carcass ..... I have been a proper little Nigella in the kitchen !!! 



Mothers Day is postponed until all signs of chicken pox are gone ..... we will be sick of the sight of chicken by Wednesday !!!!!

  2. POX on the CHICKEN!!!!!! Wow that's too bad for such a special day Jackie. Put your feet up, relax and enjoy a nice glass of wine - chickens in all their coronation glory can wait. Hope the family are chicken pox free soon, and that the pregnancy goes well - exciting!

    I'll miss our Mother's Day here in May - will be in England (yeah!) - my bunch here will most likely be relieved they don't have to do anything!

    Sending hugs - Mary

  4. Oh dear, but better safe than sorry. Over here we had Mother's Day a week early. For some reason Lady Magnon thought is was a week ago, so I Emailed the children reminding them to Skype; which they did. Only one knew that we had the wrong date.

  25. Hi,i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MR ANTHONY. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for only money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000 daily. ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address anthonbradley646@gmail.com
