Laden with goodies from Matta's in Bold Street, also a brown turkey fig for the garden, some damn good wine, acquired (cough) Michael Wood (In Search of Shakespeare) on our telly and my copy of Doc2 DVD The Invasion (with added Lethbridge-Stewart!) has arrived.

Can a person's cup runneth with more joy than this? Well, yeas, probably. I mean, I could win the £51 mill on  the Euro-lottery. any number of wonderful things might happen but for now, I am content. This is uncommon enough to be worthy of a post. ::nods thoughtfully::

PS: There are an awful lot of Spaniards dressed in red and white and flags proclaiming allegiance to something called 'Atlético' wandering the streets of my former home city. Is there, perchance, a match on...?

I'm dying to know (nosy old moo) if you're going to plant your fig in an old doctor's bag, a la Alan Titchmarsh? I'm sure I recall his advice on the subject, summat about distressing the roots possibly, and god knows, being planted in a doctor's bag would distress me... I digress *g* Glad you've had such a good day - did you slip any cute wandering Spaniards into your luggage?

I had the male half of the partnership in tow so ops for abducting stray Castillans were unforthcoming I'm afraid.

A Doctor's bag huh? That's a new one. Never in my life have I heard of that before. The only advice I've ever come across is to plant it with a dead sheep but that seems unbecoming behaviour for a vegetarian. I assume it's about root restriction, doctor's bags being robust and not likely to rot in a hurry. Let a fig's roots roam and it'll crack your walls whilst hurrying to the top, put out a ton of nice foliage - perfect Biblical coverings the naked people in your life - but produce precious little fruit. You have to restrain the eager little buggers if you're to hold them in check and get tons of tasty figs, but personally, I think planting it in a big plastic pot will have the same effect with less effort. I mean, hanging out in darkened car parks in a balaclava, boot polish on the face, to wrest a doctor's bag from him seems both tricky and unfair - I mean, it's his bag, bought and - one would assume - paid for with his hard earned £££. Isn't that sort of tantamount to... stealing?

A dead sheep? That's a new one on me... where on earth would you get one, and wouldn't it make the figs taste lamby? ::worries::

Now, maybe a dead politician...
