    Twonk is super twonk tonight, who wants meat-based ready meals? I ask you.

    Lets hope he over stretches himself and has to go bankrupt, sending Bapper running to Ifty/Rob/Paul/Rhys.

    On second thoughts Paul would be perfick, really send Fag-ash over the edge!

    He really is dim. Surely the big thing now will be completely vegetarian ready meals? Given that Fridge farm do organic veggies, why don't they do something about marketing their lovely horse-free grub? Even if it was on a tiny scale in the shop, like "fridge farm recipes plus veg etc" in special packs.
    It's got to be worth a shot, eh?

    Someone may have answered this before - however, what percentage of the humungous mortgage that their parents took out in their late fifties do SLT and Hellin pay, if anything at all? If not, why not and why should they have any say in a fundamentally important decision for Plague Farm such as that proposed by SLT?

    My money's on Cardinal Schonborn in the Pontiff Derby. Joe and the Cider Clubbers should be running a book.
    BTW my household is probably one of the few that's recently started buying meat based ready meals... broken ankle makes haute cuisine tiring and tricky. I'd be grateful for a bit of horsemeat in them, they seem to mostly gravy IMO. Surely Shula's horses are organic and could be a supply source for SLT?

    I feel for you, lets hope the ankle heals very quickly, unless Twonk will deliver some of his "tasty" pork based Organic/Non-Organic ready meals.

    Filled with jus NOT gravy.........who could even suggest such a thing!

    Well TB I have a broken ankle too.

    I was fitted with a sort of divers boot thingy at the Jimmy Saville memorial home and house of correction.

    But I still cook.

    Get thee to the kitchen!

    Wynkyn, I'm still in a cast, which is becoming increasingly uncomfortable as Boot Day approaches (11 days and counting). Daytime cuisine is OK-ish but the ready meals come into their own in the evening when knackered - NB horse reference - and if on my own. They are disgusting but edible if accompanied with fresh veg. Sadly, I have been unable to locate a supplier of Tarm Archer Ready Meals.
    I'm a trimalleolar fracture, what are you?

    I do apologise TB.

    I feel your pain/fustration. Not so easy with a cast I admit the bloody crutch was a bit of a problem too.

    I can understand ready meals in that context. I made curry - pies and such sitting on a stool. And that was both messy and knackering.

    I would watch out for the Twonkmiesters pork balls in slime being passed off as upper crust Shergar burgers in burgandy jus though. The unspeakable little git.

    A word of advise about the boot thingy - it came as a surprise to me the base/sole is curved and feels very odd to "walk" with for a couple of days.

    "I'm a trimalleolar fracture, what are you?"

    What am I. Do you know I don't know? A couple of torn ligaments and a broken bone on the outside of the ankle. (Not skiing)

    I will ask on Monday (sad day) when having a reassesment at the Jimmy Saville house of correction

    I wish you well

    Ouch! Ligament damage is narsty! I suspect you're a malleolar fracture. I feel I am much superior, being 'tri.'
    (And no apology needed, I tend to laziness normally, so the ankle is the perfect reason to defer many things).
    Yes, the boot.... I'm not anticipating being able to skip about straight away. Especially since I didn't before the accident.
    I fell while walking a dog in the snow - but someone asked me if I did it ski-ing (I live in Hampstead, they're all at it) and not sure what got into me, but I said "yes, in France." Suddenly a whole virtual life opened up.... like TA....

    Not even an ice related issue. I was in Cuba 34 deg C and crossing a road with large pot holes .....I know I know....

    I can attest to the stories of the Cuban health service though.

    Picked up out of the road by locals and Mrs w de w
    Taken to the visitors medical centre
    Examined. Ambulanced to hospital
    X-Ray, diagnosis, plaster
    Ambulance back to medical centre.
    Issued with pain killers and crutch (they only had one)
    Taken to where we were staying

    Total time? 1 hour 45 mins!

    Are you an MD?

    Not an MD, just read my discharge notes and Googled. Also cross examined a nice junior doctor who showed me post op X-rays.
    My NHS timetable (Cuba wins hands down):
    4.30pm fall over
    5.30 hauled across ice on improvised sledge to ambulance
    5.45 admitted to A&E
    7.00 decision that surgery is needed
    2.00am!!!! they find a bed
    3 days later!!!! they operate. Hospital in melt down, turning admissions away by then, so quite lucky really. Lovely nursing staff coping with daft workload - I have written to Mr Cameron.
    I hope you fell at the end of your holiday!

    Not sure we should be having this conversation TB.

    But what the hell..

    Boot fitted at Jimmy Saville house of correction and centre of excellence. Guaranteed appointment. Joined about 80 others with appointments to find that they didn't have an appointment system. After a few hours a near riot ensued. The Matron was summoned and 4 hours after appointed time I was seen by spinal surgeon who had been dragged in after the end of his shift in the theatre that started 11 hours earlier: he was almost incoherent with fatigue. Sent to fractue X-ray. Closed! .......sent to A&E X-ray queue in freezing corridor...

    Enough

    Anyway I hear Capt Birds Eye pies may contain Neddy. At least it's not Birds Eyes! Ohhh.....
