Just a quick hello from rural Somerset. I am a housewife with two lovely children and an avid keeper of ducks! Strange combination I know! I'm also very interested in country crafts and obsessed with growing and studying herbs. Hoping to make some new friends and get loads of tips!

Well done Yvonne, think I prefer that to your nickname. Always thought that the least appealing part of a monkey's anatomy was his a--e. Also, with luck Seth and MOS won't unleash too much although they are probably already laying their plans.

 

Great to have you onboard.
