Why is there a hanger on my bookcase?

It's on the second from top shelf leaning casually against some library books but what on earth is it doing there? Our home sometimes resembles a bricka-brack shop with things turning up in odd odd places but this is a typical modern London flat ie has absolutely no storage. Our wardrobe has become less of a place to store clothes and more of a suitable dumping ground for anything that simply can not fit anywhere else - on top of it resides the cats' moving box, a moses basket, a baby bath, a kid's microscope from Intel, x number of empty product boxes...... My dream is to one day have our own home with enough storage that my husband doesn't sleep at night waiting for the wardrobe to keel over on top of him.
Ah yes, he's home. Came back the bearer of gifts - a digger/tractor for FB which went immediately into the sandpit in the kitchen (no backgarden, boy loves playing in sand) and two very delicious, very stylish bars of chocolate from a Belgium chocolatier. I should make them last I know I should but...
The return of the man meant no more slobbing about in pyjamas, no more ordering takeaway and sadly the dishes had to be done. So tonight I faced the wrath of the cooker and made dinner and it was delicious. Came from Apples For Jam which I love. First time I made this recipe (penne with prawns and tomatoes) and will definately not be the last.
right I am off to eat my chocolate, have a good evening.

Well, hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I must say that I think the more space you have the more stuff you have. We have a basement that I keep de-cluttering and it just mysteriously fills up again. I would bet Mrs. S left the hanger there....

Daysgoby has my vote, I want that recipe too. Just been to My Float's blog where she is talking about weight, and all this diet talk makes me hungry! :)

The chocolate was very yummy, and there's still half of it left. Though if I don't want to run foul of the midwife on Saturday I should save it (they weigh you here during pregnancy and if you gain more than 1oz more than you should wow betide you! and i gain weight at the drop of a hat, and like My Float it doesn't come off easy - her post was so so sad. I cried for her).
Recipe will follow later after FB's had his haircut.
