Blue Peter - pas devant les enfants!


The Sock has been more than a little shocked by the latest revelations from Blue Peter! Whilst the Sock was busy making her Blue Peter advent crown* out of coathangers and toilet rolls, Val Singleton and Peter Purves were romping away behind the scenes! So many scandals are now attached to the BBC's flagship children's TV programme it is in danger of sinking! (Although here at The Sea.. we did all vote for the cat to be called Socks!)

So it is with no little amusement that the Sock has just realised that geeza Chris Collins' main accomplishment is to be the Blue Peter Gardener!! In line with the so-called 'curse of Blue Peter' - revelations about Chris will almost certainly follow. In the meantime, however, Collins is keeping the dear sweet little children amused at RHS Hampton Court show with the first ever RHS Scarecrow Competition.

As you can see Team Sock have been busy with their knitting needles again and produced a darling little Diarmuid scarecrow. Those of you who prefer their scarecrows on the scary side can clic below - but don't show the children....

* Note that had original instructions made it clear that one should use baubles and not candles in the advent crown it would have saved the Sock a lot of money in fire damage.

incredible revelations! That website just sucked me in, I went on it and woke up four hours later terribly anxious about whether Amy Winehouse has got too thin. And what about this shocker

Fantastic isn't it! I could have so easily missed the Wayne Rooney story because it was in the News section and I always go straight to the TV section for the Corrie spoilers. Doh!

You've got to admire anyone who can light a cigarette in a swimming pool.

Never mind all that - will you knit me one of those Diarmuid scarecrows please? It's so cute! And I don't even like Diarmuid!

I have got a good revelation about Chris Collins. I went to a party and his wife told me that he used to run the biggest British bar in Tokyo.

She said that he was really good at getting all the shy Japanese businessmen to do conga line dances around the bar. It was one of those stories where you just think how fun it sounds and you wish you had a barman like that. He has got irrepressible energy.

The Diarmuid scarecrow bears a striking resemblance to the former Watch with Mother star, Andy Pandy. Now who could be his Teddy and Loobyloo I wonder?

In a past life I taught "shy" Japanese businessmen. One glass of rouge and they would do anything - even Morris dancing!

(Keep posting the puppy pics, emma. They're very doggist here!)
