The Cottage has been tidy for a week
It has also been very quiet
It will be nice to have the old duffer back with me today

  3. I trust that Chris will have brought you back something Australian like a small jar of "Vegemite", a plastic boomerang or an old INXS CD but certainly NOT a "jolly swagman"!

    2. Or maybe a busman's hat? Like a conductor's cap!

  4. Will you be teaching him how to 'hover'?

  5. As an orstraylian, I hope he doesn't bring you any vegemite. It is foul - and owned by the Americans these days. Our tackiest souvenir is a kangaroo scrotum coin purse. Truly gross.

  21. You might just be old enough to remember the 'Bisto Kids' - because that's what the photo reminds me of, or at least your own smile of contentment.
