More of an embarrassed smile

Tried to do a nice thing today, for a rough sleeper I had a chat with on my way into the shops.

Got a couple of extra things, milk, fresh juice and a couple of pork pies which he'd told me he likes. He wasn't there when I came out, so I left the bags with the things in next to his blanket roll.

I was unpacking my shopping back home and came across a bag with a couple of pork pies in it. The bag with a couple of cucumbers in it was missing.

If he was in New Zealand he could sell 'em for a gold bar.

.... Think it's just as good - the act is the thing. Besides which PP's are very bad for us. Eat healthy as Sugarmooma says...

..Aahhh...
Nice drop of lovely rain here this morning on E Algarve - still not enough to answer the drought - ground just soaks it up on the spot.

I became a Great Aunt yesterday Caoimhe Mary was born in Australia, to my English nephew and his Irish girlfriend. I hope one day I get to meet her.

Anyone want to guess phonetically how you say that? That poor child is going to have a hard time with substitute teachers

I suspect she'll be going by her middle name quite a bit.

I'd hazard a guess at it being pronounced 'Kee-va' based on girls I knew back home who had similarly spelt (though different) names.

Not sure many 6 year olds want to be called Mary, we shall see.
