Pinched from Hester

We've only just got our power back on after a day without electricity for 'essential maintenance', so I must apologise for not posting first thing this morning.  When we did have power we had no internet, now I'm back with full electric and on my 'hamster powered' internet (exceptionally slow) so as I have no idea what to post about this late in the day I've cheated and pinched Hesters post idea.  She pinched it too, we're a cheeky lot us Bloggers, I saw it somewhere else but I can't remember where....sorry!
