Madras Curry Fudge and Hedgehogs


It is one of those days again when I sit down to write my daily diary entry and realize that I have an empty brain and I really am now writing on the hoof (can you write on the hoof? I don’t know but I think I am). Last night after writing about what ever it was, (I cant remember, it was yesterday) I went outside to find a hedgehog (oooo yes yesterday was the beast of May . . . . . I remember), the hedgehog seemed a little out of it so it was moved to a location just out of the rain (yes rain?) and given a bowl of cat food, much to the disgust of the cats. Although there was little they could do about it as the hedgehog was rather spiky as hedgehogs are. Anyway this morning the bowl was empty and the hedgehog had gone and its OK because despite the fact that Mr Jones says it was abducted by aliens, I for one think it is rather unlikely, hedgehogs learnt how to avoid alien abduction when mankind was still grunting and poking a pointy stick in an open fire with a bit of meat (no not a hedgehog but maybe a sausage) on the end of it (and no I don’t mean yesterday when it was sunny but way back when).




While on the subject of food I tried Madras Curry Fudge today, it was a strange taste and very spicy hot, which for fudge is a bit weird to say the least. It is one of those things that messes with the mind and confuses it, and I still don’t know whether I liked it or not only that I don’t think I could eat much of it in one go without exploding.  It was on the chocolate stall of the new market in our tiny little village so next week I am going to try the Marmite Fudge. I could have tried it today but I had just eaten the Madras Curry Fudge and I am not sure my taste buds would have been able to cope with both.

Sadly there is little else to say about my day I did have to leap out of the way of a large concrete block which I tried to throw on top of my head but missed and the weather has been grey and cooler.

Ooooo and as I type the man way over the hill is having an awesome fire in his field and is so excited abut it he is running about waving his arms and pointing at the sky and stuff. Mr Jones says its aliens trying to flush out hedgehogs (I think he is going mad)……

  1. I love coming here as I know I can get a good chuckle. I don;t mean it unkindly, but it's the wonderful way you write.

    1. Well part of the aim of my diary is too amuse people as well as keep a daily account of what I do. My theory is if I write a diary I should write an interesting one, although I have a feeling only I may be able to say what I actually did on any given day...

  2. What do you mean, you THINK Mr Jones is going mad??
    As much as I love marmite, I'm not sure I'd want to taste it in fudge form, though I am a tad curious to how it might taste...apart from of marmite and fudge, of course. :)

    1. Ah yes Miss Lily I do get your drift but I blame that nice Mr Steven Spielberg, what with the injunctions, setting the dogs on me and switching on the electric fence when I am waving my manuscript at him from the advantage point of the top of his electric fence. Although my manuscript did burst into flames, luckily I have loads of copies so he will be seeing me again soon .

      Sorry Miss Lily a distraction. . . . Fudge, I will tell you about the Marmite fudge next Friday when the chocolate man comes to the village market. He is not made of Chocolate Miss Lily, I know what you were thinking and it is best not to go there, A man who tastes of chocolate would be terrible, it would be like a curse.

      Oooo have you read Mr Garry's blog (klahanie) below I see him as another potential RATs member. I will add his blog to my favourites list below.

  3. Madras Curry Fudge seems like something I'd like to chew over.

    You keep being surreal, or unsurreal, or whatever it is you do. And speaking of hedgehogs. We need an official Hedgehog Day. Seems only fair. If a hedgehog sees its shadow on the first day of summer, we will get another six weeks of winter.

    A good weekend to you, kind sir.

    Gary :)

    1. Sorry I never get to your blog as much as I should do but as you know I am not a great reader and enjoy writing much more, even if I am not that good at it.

      The Madras Curry Fudge was very spicy and very sweet, I will buy some next week and take photo. It is certainly something I have never seen before.... I just hope he brings some along next week now.

      Hope all is well with you..
