Pancakes and birthday cake for breakfast! That's the kind of thing we have in the evening. I don't think my kids would ever have got out of bed early enough to ever have gone out for breakfast.

LOL!
Sleepyheads, huh?

Well, little man showed up at my door when I was having coffee.
I am in coma when I wake up.
We got to the restaurant at 11am, so it was technically brunch!

He had a huge stack of chocolate chips pancakes, and he got an ice cream sundae, as a present from the restaurant!
He was too full for cake when we got home!

He got his Herman -the tortoise- and it has been an amazing hit!
He really loves it!
Fed him, put him in water, put him on the floor to walk, let the dogs sniff him, asked thousands of questions.
He made a list of the things he needs to do to take care of him.
Really sweet!
I took dozens of pictures!!

I wish I could post some here!

I think your pancakes are like Scottish ones where as English pancakes are more like French crepes. In France there is a supermarket chain called Leclerc. They are prolific, they even do hardware and funerals. My nearest one is in Lesparre 12 miles away and they did ready made chilled crepes flavoured with rum, cognac and other stuff. I stopped in there on my way back from Bordeaux yesterday to find they had discontinued them. I may start a riot. They have them for less here.

That sounds delicious!

Over here the mixture is made of "pancake flour" which is a wheat flour that is not like baking flour.
Then either water or milk, and an egg.
Then they are fried in butter or oil, till they poof up, then you flip them and cook on the other side.
You can add fruit or chocolate chips into the batter.
And I guess you could flavor it also with the yummy things you mentioned.
Here we also get multi-flavored syrups to put on them.
One can get sugar-free syrup too. (I'm diabetic and I know you are too!)
We put a dollop of butter on the top one, and then pour the syrup.
I put butter on all of mine.

Fernando always gets chocolate chip pancakes and he does not put syrup on them.

I do not get them often, for I have a wheat allergy.
Every once in a while I'll do it, and suffer through the itchiness!

I hear that it has been really hot over there, on you all's side of the pond!

I hope you are able to stay cool,
somehow,
for I know that most locations do not have air conditioning!

It is 100F degrees (37.7 C) over here today, and even with the air conditioners on, we feel uncomfortable.

It has been like sitting in a sauna. My veranda got to 40c. The only cold thing around is the beer in the bar. Even the cold water in the tap is warm. As soon as the supermarket opened at 17h00, I went and stood next to the chilled cabinets. Keeping hydrated has been an issue.

Oh my goodness!
I know what you mean!
It's hotter over there than here!
I take it you are in France...?
Gets hot out there where you are!

Today Malcolm is installing a doggie door on the door to my back garden.
So dogs can go in and out to pee and stuff.

I am excited!
I often leave the back door open, so the Corgi clan can go out, but it is not always the safest thing to do.
Although my neighborhood is not dangerous ... but...

In the past there was a forest behind my house, and the trees and underbrush were so thick, that you could not see through it, not have access to my fence.

Now ... they cut down the forest.
And there are 3 houses built right behind my back garden fence.
Their fences touch my fence.

So, we will have a real door to close and a little door for dogs, that will stay open!

Today I have a new critter friend.

As some of you know, I have a frog friend, that lives under the front bush of my house.
I put water out for him on a flat dish, and my daughter named him Fred.

Well, Fred has a friend.
It is a small white salamander.
She discovered the water dish.
And she hides under the lip of the plate.

We have named her Sally!

I wish I could take pictures and post them.
But the critters are shy, and if I linger too long in the walkway, they hop away and hide.

It's not generally known that the doggie door was invented by Sir Isaac Newton. For such a high powered brain he was a little disappointing though, installing a separate door for his cat! Glad to see your tiny but interesting residents are still about.
