Maybe we can get Gareth Malone to form us into a choir then we can get a no. 1 single and make loadsamoney that way.

I like that word, cyberetically. But I expect someone will borrow it soon. I heard podium being used  as a verb (she will podium) on the radio not long after we had invented it on here.

I agree with Kate, chocolate is only for sharing when bought by someone else. Cake can be shared.

Geoff, you guessed it -am avoiding both smelly work mate and the stalker.

Just about to go out now - will get me coat!

Don't worry Becks, neither had I until a few years ago and OH went veggie and started experimenting with all sorts of recipes - he'd never been near the kitchen much before that but now we share cooking 50/50 so I'm not complaining.

You can only immunise the wild animals that you can catch, that's the problem. As Pam's already said, it would surely be better to concentrate on developing a vaccine for the cattle.

I used to work for a witch - or maybe she was just a poisoned dwarf. Was never sure.

Geoff, I am in training - have walked up and down the stairs at least 3 times so far today. Might need cake now.

You're right Geoff, its an emotive issue, partly because badgers are lovely wild creatures. Would be different if it was something like rats causing this problem. And its possible to vaccinate the badgers against TB.

Lovely sunny morning here, so I'm hoping it stays like this until lunchtime. It was a bit chilly last night though, and OH suggested putting the heating on but I told him to man up a bit - then later wished the heating was on! I did put the leccy blanket on in bed for a short while. I started watching Shawshank Redemption last night - a film I could watch over and over - but it went on past my bedtime.

Flo, do you have a broomstick?

Becks, fried green tomatoes are actually rather nice - its what I will be doing with mine, as there's not a red one in sight. There's actually a recipe somewhere, I think you coat them with polenta (but cornflour would probably do). I don't have enough to make chutney or jam.

Jean, have a cup of tea and slice of cake, then you won't mind so much about the soaking. And congratulate yourself on the free plants!

Yes the terrors are lovely, but exhausting. We flopped on the sofa when they'd gone, with a cup of tea and M&S cake! Even Alfie was exhausted, he's never had two small people he could run around all day with before.

Becks, glad you enjoyed the holiday! thought you might in the end, probably because you didn't expect you would!

Kate, I hope you had a big box of tissues on hand for My Sister's Keeper! Am sure you can picture me on the plane!!

I had a lovely weekend with the little terrors - they came and helped me dig up potatoes and pick beans, courgettes and a cabbage at the plot, we went for a long walk on the heath and went to the miniature railway. In between, they managed to knock a glass of beer down the wall, climb onto and into the chicken house, get stung by a wasp, hit each other with bamboo canes, and invite themselves into the house opposite to play with the little boy there.

A fun time was had by all!
