    Doing a bit of agreeing with Tek today (see traffic lights thread)
    It is indeed easier, although I do let her take my work shirts home for ironing.

    How nice of you :D

    I spend 5 nights a week at my GFs and 2 at my own place, unless anything comes up. That way we still get space to do whatever we need, but see each other a lot. She has 2 kids so a bit impractical for her to stay at mine, and I like my own space sometimes! Her house isn't big enough for all my toys either...

    Mine comes over to Stafford two evenings in the week and stops over at weekends. Like you I do need my space and, at only 54, I'm too young to settle down. :D

    Mrs Catabatic don't live here anymore but we still see each other frequently, trying to out do one another on the catering stakes. Can't live together, can't live apart !!

    Are you staying in Builth? Presumably taking a trundle up the Rhayader Dams. Love that road from Newtown through Llandrindod Wells.

    2 (3), 4, 6, 8, who do we appreciate ... BANANA CAKE!

    2 eggs
    (3) bananas
    4oz butter
    6oz muscovado sugar
    8oz SR flour

    Cream butter and sugar, add beaten eggs 'n' bananas(crushed), fold in flour.

    Place in loaf tin and bake in lowish (170 (why is there no degrees key on a standard keyboard) norm, 150 (why is there no degrees key on a standard keyboard) fan) oven for 1hr 15 to 1hr 30 (check with skewer as per*) mins.

    Great for over-ripe bananas - mix in blueberries/chocolate chips/raisins(soaked in apple juice or rum as appropriate) if fancied after folding in flour.

    Yum.

    *For those not in know - if skewer comes out clean it's done - if tis coated in cake-mix tis not - put it back in for another five, then another etc till done.

    Last night I got 4 skin on chicken breasts, stuffed them with chilli cheese and wrapped them in smoked streaky bacon. Rubbed in a little coarse salt, ground pepper and a bit of paprika. Then decided I didn't fancy them, and put them in the freezer instead.

    Yup, figured thats 4 meals worth of meat now. Mind you, my freezer is rammed with food. Got enough for several BBQs, despite firing it up twice this weekend.
