Looks like fairy waved a wand and it's all gone. 

I'm off to fetch the wedding cake and additional pork pies for the evening finger buffet. The caterers have been warned that out lot can consume an awful lot of food, especially when someone else is paying.

Pat, can you smuggle a bottle of Penfolds port. The eec wont allow it to be sold here, because its not made in Portugal.

Plant ID please

Euphorbia lathyris or caper spurge. Wear gloves to handle as the sap can cause scarring if you get it on your skinand the skin is then exposed to light.
