After months of looking for a new dog i finally found one at a dogs shelter that was in the back of beyond with a place name i can't pronounce due to it being typically welsh and having to drench everyone in dribble when you say its name "Foelgastell" or "Cefineithin" it was in between those 2 villages, at least it wasn't at that train station that everyone knows "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" which means "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave". So you'll pleased to know that the dog i chose was called "LLogachwinpochtaligwynchariaddarbimddinhelenllinosgagagagagachoochooblurspotingdip" which translated is "Quiz" but being as i got writers cramp filling out the vets form her name is now "Petra" and settled in straight away, i will add a picture here once she will sit long enough in front of the pin hole camera i have, state of the art in my house LOL.

My cooking skills are going from strength to strength every sunday, last sunday i decided to make a essence of chocolate sponge with vanilla buttercream filling and a solid choclate topping, OOOOH! adventurous i know and wait for it Chocolate covered marshmallows and chocolate covered chili peppers, boy are they hot but taste good.
My god the cake was so good but when i ate the chili first it was sweet then hot then it kept on going from sweet to hot so it was a weird eating experience but nice, I tried a chili by itself while making it, oh my god, it burnt my lips, mouth and even went up to the inside of my nose and was burning that, never eaten anything so hot in my life but all good chefs taste their own food LOL
