Well, here we are, 200 posts on and much the wiser for it.
Anyway, I came here today to let you know that the holiday has been slightly postponed, owing to WhyNotSmile having temporarily found a form of gainful employment, which cannot be passed up. But the delay is only temporary, and the holiday will take place next week. There is still time to sign up for a postcard.
In other news, you'll be pleased to hear I have added broccoli to the garden; this came last week after a phone call from my friend Philip which went like this:
Philip: Hello! Can I come and visit you tonight?
Me: yeah, ok.
Philip: I'm going to cycle. I'll leave at 6.30, so I'll be there about 7.30
Me: OK, see you then.
Now Philip lives in Bangor and I live in Belfast, so when 7.30 came and went, I wasn't too concerned, but then 8.00 came and went, and at 8.15 I started to worry and tried texting (I don't really know why - either he'd be cycling and not hear it, or he'd lying in a ditch unconscious and not hear it). By 8.30 I had given him up for roadkill, and then a few minutes later he came cycling down my street, muttering things about how it was a bit further than he'd thought, and with a broccoli plant over the handlebars.
I've been assured that I can eat the leaves of teh broccoli plant, but I'm not sure I want to, so I am eagerly awaiting it growing some broccoli.
