End of the Week Snippets

Best Veggie News - my favourite living-the-good-life celeb, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, is bringing out a vegetable cookery book in September. I knew he'd start making his way over from the dark side one day!

Best Financial News of the Week - we have secured a very low interest rate life time tracker mortgage for when our current deal comes to an end in a couple of months and, bizarrely, a £20,000 overdraft which our financial advisor was highly excited about. Said he'd never seen anything like it in his life. I said, 'What does it mean?' and he said, 'Cheap holidays and cars for the rest of your life.'

Best Laugh of the Week - Mrs Pumphrey chasing Mrs Slocombe around the garden in hot pursuit of a damson from the tree. I nearly wet myself.

Best Chips of the Week - lunch out on Thursday at the Stile Bridge Inn. Yuuuuummmmmm!!!!

Best Handyman of the Week - Andy, putting pictures on the walls in the Big Picture Re-Jiggle. Apparently, we have VERY HARD walls. And picture nails aren't what they used to be. There was hardly any swearing. Well done, Andy!

Best Celebrity Transformation of the Week - Joint Winners: Pauline Quirke for her 7 and a half stone weight loss and Hugh F-W for a very tidy hair cut that makes him look ten years younger.

Best Comedy of the Week - Rerun of Miranda on BBC 2 and Rob Brydon and Frank Skinner singing 'Don't Cry Daddy,' together.

Best Radio of the Week - The Diaries of William Holland 'Paupers and Pig Killers' on Radio 4 Extra, and Clive Anderson hosting a show live from the Edinburgh Festival

Best Fur Ball of the Week - Pandora Kitten, Tuesday, 11.30 a.m

Best Sudden-Jump-in-a-Startled-Fashion of the Week - Tybalt, Thursday mid-day, for no apparent reason at all.

Best We're-Awake Moment of the Week - Andy setting off the smoke alarm by grilling extra fat fish fingers on Thursday. Actually, that's what might have set Tybalt off.

Best Walk of the Week- this morning, 1 hour, brisk, around the edge of the park, 9,000 steps in one fell swoop- result! What does this mean? This means I can spend the rest of the day writing or sewing or watching a film on the telly. Which is just as well as it looks like rain again.

Happy Bank Holiday!
