    Ooh it's so exciting and I'm in Lane ONE!

    Am off now to try out shaping my old bones into an F figure for when we're lining up. (bit like the Lightning Bolt and the M Farrah, 'cept I'm fitter than they are). Then it's an anonymous phone call to the papers to drop hints about "understandings in chandling circles" ...

      Yeah well I did had a great time, until I came home to find that my dream of olympic glory has gone up in smoke! Dear John has burned my tea light!!!
      Bet Andy Murray didn't have to deal with these pressures when he won an Olympic gold.........Back to the pigging drawing board!

      Aaaarrggg!!!

        Oh Mr McKay! I realise this is not the correct response but THANK YOU for the best laugh I've had all week! I've had what's known in technical terms as a "challenging week" and your post has cheered me up enormously! My best wishes to Mr Isabel for his swift recovery ...

        Bring on the substitute! Good luck with No 2.

          You know what? There is a name for people who get gratification from the misfortune of others...I just can't think of it just now (sore head ++++)
          I'll pass on your good wishes to John when he returns from A&E

                  It was indeed! I remember the episode well. That Rose was an absolute hoot!
                  I learnt the word from an old boss of mine who was half German. He also taught me the German word for when you eat something slightly iffy and spend the next few hours wishing you hadn't. Cannot remember what the word is right now, but it translates as something like "falls right through". Yum!

                  But on a far more bearable note, you cannot submit your first ever hand made candle for this compo!
                  Nobody should not witness in person their first ever lighting!

                  Long trip from Shropshire (where my sister happens to live) to the sunny south coast, so I'd suggest making more than one so you can have that first burn feeling AND submit one for the Tealight Olympics.

                      Still laughing. Quick trip through to Murrayfield to watch the rugby yesterday helped enormously. Wayhayyyyyyyyyy!
