The OED has removed the feature due to misuse - how very sad.

That ship is enormous! I am surprised that your dock can accommodate it. I would have fallen for those mugs too. I look forward to seeing how the money pit is improved.

I find it difficult to imagine the scale of those walls so will duck out, being slightly cowed by anything enormous. Ages since I had a Rocky Road, was that a very big slice?

Your garden is looking beautiful. I wish you luck with the cat problem, I have heard that citrus aroma helps to keep them away but I don't know if it truly does.

I would have had some hog roast, I think; donuts don't smell good to me. I'd have enjoyed some wine though. Aren't owls incredible?

You seem to have cornered the market in Starlings! That's a great idea for re-distributing books.

You seem to finish shawls as fast as I finish socks - how do you manage that? I do admire this shawl, it looks very elegant.

There now, I prefer Cherry Conserve - each to his own. That bread looks fab.

Your beach finds are rather good. That dog must be a bit dense I think. The little found fish is very sweet.

Imagine having a room in your home large enough to accomomdate that carpet! Beautiful though.

I have never eaten Millionaires Shortbread, it always looks as if my teeth would start to ache the minute I bit into it.

I hope the exhibition goes off well. I like your skirts, that is the style that I favour.

All of your pictures are good, interesting too. I do love to paddle, so I am quite jealous of you.

The flood damage was extreme, I hope that it is not so bad this coming winter. The thistle has a beautiful colour, I would like a sweater in that shade. Your dinner looks good and the flavour of the gravy sounds as if it was excellent. My car is 16 years old... :-(

You look very happy in your work, I probably would not... Your little tree is a Elder isn't it? Lovely blossom in Spring then fruits to make wine and syrup with.

I am always amazed at the difference a little steaming or other blocking can do for a knitted piece. I like the colour of the first one. Well done Malcolm!

I have never seen a Harry Potter film so have nothing to compare the mill with. It is very unusual though isn't it? The last water mill I went to was in Suffolk, that was an interesting tour and, I went right to the top floor although my knees were trembling.

I do love a good rainstorm. We had one earlier when I was leaving a supermarket, such fun to walk fast whilst getting soaked.
