June 2006


jam of the day is strawberry

i had a business lunch with someone yesterday in a very posh restaurant, but they were 50 minutes late and i only had an hour for lunch so i didn’t eat (the cranberry juice is nice though). During my waiting time i did study the menu quite well and noticed you could get broad beans with jam on. which was a nice idea.

small blue hippo

hippos aren’t native to britain. especially not the blue ones.

the mystery moth

lynda sent me this mystery moth which she had in her house and couldn’t identify. is it a mothetore – the mythical mothical creature, half moth, half goat ?

sonning scarecrows

on Monday we went to see the scarecrows in Sonning on Thames which is a cool annual thing they do each year.
here are just a few of the 70-odd scarecrows people had made
Pirates of the Caribean
Rolf Harris
Sonning Zoo
Oh dear – i thought this one was a car crash which seemed a bit in appropriate. it was actually making a point about the queues through the village to get across the bridge (but of course!)
Alan Titchmarsh and their local MP (in the background)
Esther’s favourite was Winnie the Pooh playing pooh sticks in someone’s garden
Dobie (from Harry Potter)
i loved this Mighty Boosh one featured Milky Jo (and Old Greg out of shot)

what ?
it’s a fresh Banksy from Tottenham Court Road
