Recipe for meltdown...

Take the following:

1 very large helping of emotional 41 yr old female who feels very bogged down with life.
1 very large helping of arrogant, up himself husband
1 statement from female of 'just popping to the garden centre to find some Christmas Ornaments to photograph'
1 large helping of 'don't be so selfish, we'll come with you'.
1 massive argument that evolved from wanting half an hour to myself, not forgetting to add in belittling remarks.
1 very large helping of extremely low self esteem.

Mix it all together very vigorously. Bake it at a very high tempertature, but whilst it's baking get husband to throw in very large helpings of emotional blackmail and extra large helpings of guilt.

After half an hour you will find that you have the biggest meltdown for a long time. Don't forget to let afore mentioned husband keep poking meltdown for the rest of the day just to make sure you keep it fresh!


  1. Keep adding guilt - fresh, dried or pureed - you can never have too much guilt in these recipes

  2. There must be something in the air!Things are fraught here too. We must get together soon. you so deserve some time to yourself. Lots of love and a big hug xxx

  3. Oh and not forgetting - the sickly topping always added by the husband the following day.. carry on as if nothing happened.


    Kim... you know the score too LOL

    Julie - YES we must! Hope things get better there soon too.

  4. soak in lashings and lashings of choclate and wine.

  5. Love you recipe! Is it the time of year for fraught wives. Or should that be husbands?
