In the local market town there is a garden shop which I get my bird seed from. I like it because it’s super cheap. Even cheaper then the Pound Shop. I especially like going in the shop during October. That’s when they give away the out of date flower seeds. Just 9 months ago I walked out of the shop with a bag of bird seed and pockets stuffed full with flower seeds. This little beauty cost me the price of feeding the birds for three months. A bargain and us Yorkshire Folk like those.

That’s my Dad, he is a muppet.”

That what Hawklad as a toddler thought of me. He sternly mentioned this to someone at the local zoo after his Dad had one of those moments…… Now wind forward to the present.

What on earth is that…”

If you think I’m trying that you are clearly madder than you look….

The muppet force still runs strong in you Dad….”

If you try to feed that to the birds then I will need to call the Bird Protection Society. “

Clearly he wasn’t impressed with my latest piece of baking art.

Trust me, that was the good side. It was a shocker. It had the soft, airy and bouncy feel of Reinforced Tungsten. Understandably even the birds refused to eat it. I wonder if the builders across the road would like to use it as foundation material. I’m not sure that thing is ever going to break down. Like I’m not sure Im ever going to grow out of my muppet stage….

  1. I don’t think you are a muppet? But I’m not really sure what that definition is over there

    I think you are a fun and loving dad – so if that’s a muppet … then yes.

    You always have beautiful flowers – impressive – I couldn’t keep them alive if was me. I am the plant grim reaper 😮😳 ugh – I wish though!! I will live vicariously through your flowers lol ✌️

  2. It looks good! It made me laugh as it reminded me of a scene in a movie where the mom had baked a loaf of bread, and in a depressed mood, the son tossed the bread into a lake and killed a duck. Yours must be that kind of loaf!

  3. Supposed to be bread or cake? Either one it works for me. Did you bake it in a funny shaped tin…don’t know how you achieved the sort of knob end. I’ve seen way worse and it’s the effort that counts. Muppets are a good thing.

  4. Muppets are wonderful creatures and I love them all. Be very proud of your Muppet Status!
    Your bread looks good🤷🏼‍♀️ maybe instead of foundation it can double as a Super Sponge for the area that likes to flood in the rains??💌

  5. Have hope. It may be an apocryphal Mark Twain quote but i held it as an article of faith when my intellectual capabilities were challenged by my teenage children…
    ‘When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.’
