I sort of knew the day wouldn't take the usual course ...
How many people do you know that lay in bed on a Sunday morning discussing the finer points of their mothers boiling the veg for 20 minutes? The addition of adding a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda to the cabbage pan was also touched on. However that subject was scotched because coming from a more upwardly mobile family it wasn't the done thing in our house!
On our walk the next subject for discussion was the proliferation of plastic bags of dog poo hanging in trees and bushes. In fairness that subject was debated by us yesterday seeing a couple in the village field with two dogs, go to the bother of harvesting the excrement only to disappear down a track, returning with empty hands!?! Sawing a lady in half yes, disappearing dog poo ..... NO!

Oh the joys of having an active brain ... just wish the bod was as busy ... the sofa summons ... zzz
