Wah Wah Wah

Yesterday was my 50th.  I don't like a fuss at birthdays, but none of my four children had said 'Happy Birthday' to me by mid-afternoon.  I was hurt.  Me who does everything for those children (the narrative ran), who loves them with my heart and soul, who doesn't ask for fancy presents, Oh Misery Me Oh Wah Wah Wah.  I quite got into it.  And I couldn't (or wouldn't) snap out of it.  Perhaps lady-hormones were fuelling this malaise, but I didn't like that idea muddying the waters; I wanted the pure pain of being forgotten, a mere servant shuffling around the edges of their lives, Wah Wah Wah-de-Wah.. 

Lucky for me they pulled the stops out hug-wise in the evening and turned things around for martyr mum. Our Too Too Moo take-away was convivial enough, and the day was topped off in the usual way - making ice cream for you lovely people, which is a great therapy, yum yum.  


New On This Week:

Butter Popcorn
Deliciously creamy buttery popcorn ice cream, the flavour is exactly popcorn, no bits - never made this before and I'm really pleased with it.

Fresh Ginger
Ginger infused and squeezed into syrup and cream. An old fave.

Fruits of the Forest Pavlova
A deep fruity ice cream of raspberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant with chunks of meringue in there.
