Garfield would be ashamed of me

You would not believe the time and effort it has taken me to get that 7 second video up on the previous post.

Thanks for the suggestion, Furtheron. It seems lots of people were having the COM surrogate and Runtdl (or something) errors way back in January 2007 with Vista. Whatever it is and does, it means I can't upload videos at the moment. I had to resort to saving the film onto a stick, taking that upstairs to Younger Son's room and using his (my old) computer to upload it. And was it worth it? Well, I think it's quite fun. For 7 seconds.

Last Saturday Tim, a friend, said to Husband, 'I hear Elder Son's coming down next weekend.'
'Is he?' said Husband.
On Sunday, Carol said to me, 'Elder Son's down next weekend, isn't he?'
'Is he?' I said,

Elder son and Carol's son are best friends and were in Birmingham university together. If I ever wanted to know what Elder Son was doing, I'd ask Carol. Her son communicated with her.

So, yes, Elder Son and Daughter-in-law are down, although we're not seeing much of them as it's more of a friends' gathering than them coming down to see the parents. But they're having lunch with us tomorrow before they go back to London.

I decided I'd make a lasagne today ready so I can just pop it in the oven when I get back from church tomorrow. In Sainsburys I mentally checked off my list: mince, vegetables, cheese, Dolmio extra spicy sauce. Yes, I had everything I needed. Have you spotted my mistake yet?

My sauce was merrily bubbling on the stove when it struck me.

Lasagne usually works better when it has pasta sheets in it.

Well, you got me Liz! I just assumed you already had the pasta part! lol

Oh Liz! What did you do? I have to admit that lasagne is a staple here when people come for a meal - I can make it in a large tray to suit large appetites. But it does mean I have to remember to have enough stuff in the cupboard!

I'm glad you got that video posted after all - it's rather fun.

I couldn't think what was missing, either! Hope you had a handy 'open all hours' shop.

Being a lasagne tragic, yes, I did notice the lack of lasagne sheets, but thought you probably had some. So, what did you do?

Just tell everyone that it is low carb lasagne!

jams o donnell said...

Haha. Not necessarily.. Consider it a low carb lasagne!

So, some people have sons who communicate? Unknown in our family.

Glad you were able to add the video to your last post--your "squeaking" sounds just like me when I encounter such heights. You were one brave lady!

How did the lasagna turn out?:)

Liz said...

Thanks all. As you say, lasagne is the sort of thing that is normally in the pantry so I didn't think to check. Luckily there is a handy local shop. It's just annoying having to stop cooking and go out.

But it was fine in the end. I meant to take a photo but it was eaten before I remembered.
