Why I don’t drink ‘Lemon Water’ in the Mornings

I've seen a lot of posts on Facebook lately about how we should all be drinking Lemon Water in the mornings.

That is, instead of a cup of tea, then another cup of tea, then a cup of coffee, and then maybe another cup of coffee, we should pour hot water on a slice of lemon and drink that.

No.

A Blue String Pudding Recipe for my Clangers Diet

Blue String Pudding (Cordon Bleu, anyone? 🙂 ) is the Clangers' favourite food, along with soup from the Soup Dragon, so of course I'd have to make some for my Clangers Diet this week!

Yes that's right: once again I'm deliberately making a lunch I hope I won't want to eat!

So, where to start? I cooked some spaghetti with peas, and added a few drops of blue food colouring:
