Ah Bunny, for mash get Smash. Do you remember Yeoman? I still see some people buying dried potato in Lidl.

They peel them with their little knives, boil them for 20 of their minutes and then they smash them all to bits   (something like that anyway) - loved that ad.

Right folks - time to get ready for bed now so will say Nos Da (can't go up the Horseshoe Pass here as I live in a bungalow).

Where's Geoff when you need a YouTube link? I liked Yeoman better,

Did anyone watch Martha and Mary?

Excellent Bjay. Nighty night.

I did, sort of predictable, Brenda Blethyn her usual self, but I liked it.

I watched Martha and Mary - a real tear jerker. So I've arrived again when everyone is going to bed and our clocks here are an hour ahead.

Geoff mentioned tewits so I looked them up and it said peewits so I still don't have a clue. Sometimes I think I've lived here so long I don't understand English any more.

Yes Glyn, I watched Martha and Mary which is why I've been away and missed all the Yorkie chat. I really enjoyed it.

Derek, I have had a wormery for quite a few years now; if you have a burning question or two I may be able to help.

Liz to follow that conversation you need to have the yorkshire dictionary link that Geoff gave

Liz, a Peewit is also known as a Lapwing or Green Plover. A wading bird that likes mudflats and arable land.

Maybe being gardeners we are green plovers

If you haven't the time...keep until really bored

I know what a real peewit is, I looked up tewit on Geoff's yorkshire dictionary and it said peewit but I thought it was more slang, not the bird. Now I can't remember why he mentioned tewits, need to go to bed - got to get up early to go to son tomorrow, 4 hour drive. Goodnight.

Oh, sorry, Liz.   I wasn't in on the yorkie chat so am now as mystified as you.

Time for bed here too.
