That's what I thought at the time and we had 3 of them, all different. I'm very good with plants, I have green fingers, but I didn't give a rats a**e about those.

Watching my daughter go nuts at the local dog show, having her ice-creamy nose licked by a cow, terrorising the tractor salesmen (photos to come, I can't resist) and eating terrible terrible salty sugary food laced with E numbers and 40 ways to get cancer and ACDC (or whatever the abbreviation is).

Oh and walking it all off ... apart from the ACDC

I have a 1st Edition 'Oliver Twist' which I was offered £2500 for in 1997. I don't think I'd ever sell it though......
