Being of a curvier persuasion, I find that an adult version of the old schoolboy favourite the elastic 'S' belt absolutely invaluable to wear with jeans  I have several ... you can buy them on Ebay.

Ma never understood vodka  ... After all, it was made from potatoes and looked like water how could it be alcoholic???

  My son brought some of 'the good stuff' back from a trip to his Russian in-laws for his grandpa and his grandma wanted to try some,  then she went out to the garden to get the washing in ... And wasn't seen again for quite a while ... Eventually she was found ... On the sun lounger in the garden shed ... Snoring!!! 

She had a similar theory about the calvados she was introduced to at my cousins wedding

New jeans aren't simple Clari ... They used to be ... Levi 501s used to fit fine ... They don't any more 

Is this a lemon plant ?

Pardon me for trying to help ... I thought that as you'd bought something labelled a lemon tree seed you might just want to grow a lemon tree ... seems a reasonable supposition .... I'll remember not to offer any help next time your name pops up

Well, whatever it is and wherever you got it from, it's not a lemon tree ... for future reference, lemon trees have glossy leaves.  

As has been said, pop some lemon pips in a pot.  You'll get some lemon seedlings for free.

You can do the same with oranges and grapefruit ... my conservatory used to be full of beautifully scented citrus when my children were young as they were continually popping citrus seeds into pots. 

Anyone got any ideas.
