hotter than the sun

Most days something unexpected lands in my inbox but whether I find it to be a good read, worth bookmarking, junk or intriguing enough to click on a link varies enormously.  This week ‘getting your child out the door in the morning‘ was a good read, compare car insurance  was bookmarked for another day and a request for bank details for an account I don’t have was immediately junked.  And the intriguing link?  Well that was to this great infographic about chilli peppers.  Did you know there is a scale for measuring the heat of a chilli pepper?  Or that the seeds are not the hottest part of the chilli?  Definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in growing your own chillies or need to know how to put out the fire (mouth/skin/eyes) when a chilli turns out to be hotter than expected.

    hi there, I don’t have much to say on twitter – I barely make the time for my beloved blog. So thank you for your kind comments but subscribing by email or via rss feed to the blog is the best option for keeping up with my rambles

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
