Monday Morning Magical Mayhem and Marmalade

By NDODS    
"Good morning ePZ , hope everyone has had a great weekend?" Today's image was created sometime ago when the weather was a little inclement. Some of you know my secrets, and some of you think you do... So I shall pop straight into thanking you all so very much for the abundance of wonderful comments following yesterdays upload 'Sodden News'. Never in my sodden dreams did I think it would prove to be so very popular.

An extra large THANK YOU to the following for presenting me with they're so very welcomed UA's: pmeswani (Prashant), andylea (Andy), PhillipMinnis (Phillip), morpheous (Hugh), Humblebee (Carol), Nonur (Nezih), ChristineD (Christine) and lost but by no means least the wonderful Crissb (Cris).

I hope that you all have a great start to the week, and that it continues to be even better.

Regards as always Nathan

Not a great fan of toast and marmalade for breakfast Nathan.
It does not taste very nice when I put it in my dippy fried egg when having my fry up !!
I will stick to my buttered roll.(Or is it a ''bap'' where you come from ?)
Good shot.

Looks yummy, reminds me of the days when my late mother used to make her own marmalade, and always had enough jars to last the year round Smile. A fine result of some obviously very hard work, Nathan. Carol

No, no, no Nathan. It is Autumn so you now have to start getting the porrige made. And none of this English rubbish with sugar on it. Good old salt and water - and then I throw on a handful of blueberries - yum.
Excellent piece of work, you are a whiz at these types of images now. Moira

This is much more than a "bread and butter" type of manipulated image Nathan, I'd go as far to say this is definitely my cup of tea. You are the toast of epz tonight my friend, anyone who does not think so must be a couple of cornflakes short of a bowl!Grin
