Postcard from Oz

Greetings Chaps and Chappesses!

The Socks are now staying at the charming little seaside town of Apollo Bay! Unfortunately the weather is somewhat worse than a wet weekend in Clitheroe so we are having to lie in our enormous bed with panoramic views encompassing the whole bay and hills and watch daytime TV! Doesn't look like the Sock will be wearing her swimming cozzie too much this holiday!

We have seen more kangaroos, kookaburras, parrots, giant lizards, fairy penguins and a snake etc. than you could shake a didgeridoo at. Spent 3 days at a wilderness retreat 30 miles into the bush with our own mob of kangaroos for company. The Sock should say this was a luxury wilderness retreat - we don't do camping! Ha ha!

We noticed a garden centre yesterday which was called "The Quasimodo Garden Centre" complete with large and hideous plastic hunchback swinging from the sign. The Australians are so imaginative!

Lots of love to everyone

Arabella

PS. Have not been able to find ANYWHERE that sells TUC biscuits.

The Australian Guide to Organic Gardening

The Socks were lying in their kingsize bed with views directly over the harbour to Sydney Opera House watching breakfast TV when on came someone called the Lazy Gardener to do a slot about organic gardening.

"So what is organic gardening?" questioned the manicured blonde presenter.

"Well organic gardening is when you cut down on the chemicals......... a bit"

answered the Lazy Gardener.

Ask Arabella

Dear Ms Sock

In the wake of the Wossell Bwand and Jonathan Wuss scandal the BBC appears to have tightened up their policy on smut.

This includes the deletion of a post on their Gardening Message Boards previously entitled

"Who's been pinching my fat balls?"

not everyone knew the answer to this was squizzles.

Can we hope that this same policy will make Bill Oddie disappear from our screens when he next mentions blue tits?

Yours
K Humble

Arabella says: I am sorry there is no-one here to answer your question at the moment, the Sock is out of the country.
