Comments: How much?

Hmmm, just thinking, we've also had 2 dishwashers die at Easter too. Something funny going on here...

1) I trust you have a good exit strategy in place for those vegetable plastic bags
2) All-in-one printers never seem to quite live up to the mark
3) Are they going to take away your old fridge for you?
4) Better not drink too much scrumpy - don't forget the toilet's broken!

(1) I shall take them back to Lidl's next time I go. Last time the WI in this county ran a 'leave the packaging at the till' campaign (rather like the action in Bristol in the link you kindly left the other day), I was still working for the LEA and couldn't join them in case of 'problems'.

(2) Oh, I don't know, 55,000 copies form the last one, and 46,000 from the one before isn't too shabby, surely?

(3) Yes - for free - I must have been editing the post to add this bit as you were reading.

(4) Only the cloakroom one luckily, but, point taken... we're drinking small glasses, not pints (it must be 10 years since we last made scrumpy - although that was accidentally - and I still remember the after-effects...).

I can’t remember when I last drank scrumpy or even cider. Enjoy BW.
Is there something about Easter that doesn’t like you?

I can't believe no one has said the obvious.

Wait three days and it'll come back to life!

delcatto - reminds me of a line that I heard on a R4 comedy programme earlier in the week... but this only works this year...

"He is risen!"
"April Fool!"

Google tells me that the last time Easter Sunday and All Fools' Day coincided was in 1956.

The thought of making scrumpy accidentally made me laugh out loud!
Am I alone in wishing that emojis had not replaced emoticons?

You *can* still use emoticons of course - if you haven't forgotten how to construct them... a reminder, for those who need it...

1956...the year of Suez. I wonder what we will get this year by way of stupid foreign adventures?
