I'm not very brave today. I got 3 blisters and one has since popped. It's because I did a silly thing today and cut up a pine tree into smaller pieces. Pine trees are not good to play with, when they're dry as the resin tends to "burn" on hot days. So don't mind me if I'm doing the sooky la-la in the corner of MoM HQ. It's so much fun trying to type at the moment My pine tree died, hence the chopping-down of poor tree by hubby and my green bin won't take large pieces.

Only if you bid for it by sticking up your (wounded) mitt and shouting "Dibs I that one!" Then it'll come by every night, bash you on the bonce and pour resin in your ear.
