I think Spike Milligan said that! One of the goons anyway.

I have so many flies in my house at the moment. They particularly love the warmth of the laptop screen. This lap top doesn't have a mouse but a little 'nipple' in the middle. While manipulating this nipple earlier I mistook a fly for the cursor thingy! Doh!

We've had guests this weekend and as I had brought some tequila from France I went on a quest on Friday to find some triple sec to make margaritas. Triple sec in Ipswich? Not a chance! This is a triple sec desert. I nearly got depressed about it but in my quest to find it I entered a specialist independent wine merchants and had an extremely long and entertaining conversation with the male wine merchant! (which cheered me up)

Then, later that day as I was walking through Ipswich I noticed that the Corn Exchange now houses an art gallery and a permanent craft exhibition. I went in and emerged over an hour later, no longer at all depressed that triple sec is unavailable north of the M25! I had such an interesting chat with the guy who runs the Suffolk Craft Society who'd just moved into his new job from the Cotswolds. The two of us bemoaned the lack of a Waitrose, and I felt I'd met a kindred spirit!

So, two nice men in one day! I'm a lucky laydee!

I made do with Cointreau by the way. (which worked very well indeed)

A lucky laydee indeed.

Glad you weren't gone for long.

Can you imagine if you were looking for Peruvian Corn beer?
At least a dozen, you know!

Margaritas ..... one of my daughter "Roxy's" favorite drinks.

It's funny - Dons and I found ourselves missing Waitrose like crazy when we moved out of London but now it doesn't seem to matter. These things wear off after a while - the thing I'd miss most now if I moved out of this area would be Hockings ice cream - made from real Devon cream and to die for - mmmmmmmmm.

I'm not sure that I miss Waitrose specifically, but I do miss England, well the whole of northern Europe actually and especially some of the important people in it - and lettuce.
Too depressed to email you RW, despite the daily tennis dose, but don't disappear off this blog as it's priceless. BJ
