Just sitting at the tea-table tonight and we were discussing some of the revelations from 2011, nothing heavy mind. So what revelations did we discover this year?

1. Kale crisps - very moreish

2. Pumpkin seeds toasted with a little oil and salt are really tasty and such a waste to throw them away. Eaten in the shells when fresh and shelled the next day as a snack whilst chatting.

3. Black Futsu squash is divine, closely followed by buttercup (not butternut) squashcheers and easy to growwelldonewelldone

If you work out the worst possible scenario when in a crisis, it never comes to pass and that then becomes a great comfort in other crises.

It is extremely difficult to win the lottery but you should still buy a ticket every week - gives a glimmer of hope and you never know!

Bantams are very poor egg layers - best stock with more productive breeds

Anything can happen - for footy followers, this weekend's results prove that ok and F's racing-mad mum backed an 18/1 winner named Christmas Pudding or Plum Pudding yesterday - at age 92 big_hug

Never knowingly underfed

If you have a good sort out it in January, it will take you at least a year to recall where you have put everything.

I always loved the childrens quotes from a book I read, for me the best ones were:-

Don't let your mum brush your hair when she is mad at your sister

You can't hide broccoli in a glass of milk

 Are we having fun yet? I am!
