Part of the Treating Mum series. Yes, I know showing love with food is stereotypical, but I learned it from her

Moules Marinaire for dinner with locally baked bread and oven chips.
A glass of white wine for her, fizzy water for me. I cooked and Dads and I did the washing up /clearing away. It was a treat for me too, although none of the ingredients are expensive - just something we haven't had in a long, long time. The mussels on Monday put us both in the mood.

Tomorrow morning I tackle the ironing (groan - I hate it and shop with an eye to never having to iron anything!) My sister offered my BIL's services - he does all the ironing in their house. But I'd feel like a heel if I accepted - I live here for a peppercorn rent after all. And Law brought round a really flamboyant Autumn bouquet of flowers that I am enjoying immensely.

And & Dec are on Jonathan Ross tonight, so I'm going to Sky + it and watch it tomorrow as I iron. Should cheer me enough to get through it.

When signing office birthday cards, I always like to sign it early, and include a note from the birthday person to his or her self. For example:

Dear Maggie: Happy Birthday to the most awesome person I've ever known. You get better every single day, and the world LOVES you. Your friend, Maggie.

Other people, if they read the messages when they sign are like WTF? Also, if the person to whom the card is addressed reads it (test time) they wonder when they wrote THAT.

Also, the sound of someone munching chips like they've never eaten chips in their life, is a most annoying sound.

Not the pumpkins!

About two weeks ago, I bought the last can of cooked pumpkin on the shelf at the local grocery store to use in some cupcakes Mrs. glatt was making for a pot luck. On the phone today, Mrs. glatt mentioned that she had been to 3 different grocery stores in town looking for canned pumpkin to use in another recipe. All the shelves were bare. We joked about that for a bit. Who's buying all the pumpkin? Is there a big pumpkin pie contest going on in town? Were they recalled, or something?

So I got on Google, and to my surprise found out that there is a nation wide pumpkin shortage!

Thanksgiving is going to be canceled this year. No pumpkin pie.

We're lousy with actual pumpkins, but it's awfully hard to get canned innards.

Apparently the jack o lantern kind isn't the same as the baking kind.

Post whore time.

At dinner in the glatt household, we sometimes play a game where we will state 4 things that happened to us that day, and one of the four is false. Then everyone guesses what the false thing is. It's a good way to get the kids to open up about their days.

Yesterday my four things were:

1. I saw a woman swinging from a trapeze.

2. I saw a polo game being played in the street by a bunch of guys on bikes.

3. I saw a woman wearing a dress that made her look like a peacock.

4. I saw 4 of those big helicopters with the dual props on top fly by in a loose formation.

Which one is false?

And isn't it crazy that three of them are actually true?

You would think that, but really the helicopters one was false. Crazy huh?

Were they really in a "tight" formation?
