Anon, that's exactly the kind of erudition we need around here, frankly. But you are not allowed to be Anon - we will mix you up with so many others of that name. Pseudonyms are fine. And so?
Numero 7 - Mandy Smith. It's not .. is it?
I fear so. Et je suis un rock star.
Oh, I didn't mean to be Anon, just couldn't work out how to do a name as I don't have a blogger account thingy (It's Diane Mc wot was pout with Mrs H on Monday night)
That should have been 'out' bang goes my typing after half a bottle of Rose d'Anjou
Diane Mc wot & a Rose D'Anjou, as I live and breathe...'Pout with' is good. Very Bardot x
Yeah, not really Balearic though, is it? More sixteen, sitting on Brixham harbour in the setting summer sun wearing espedrilles and RayBan Wayfarers because Paul Weller looks cool in them...
