Behold the magic pie! so called because as you remove it from the nondescript brown cardboard box it just seems to grow and grow and look impossible to return to the box ( I am thinking I've mentioned this before)
It was a gift from regular visitors Bob and Pat from Leicester mmmmmmmm
I was dealing with some departing guests the other morning and saw an elderly man standing by the garden wall, he had a shifty look round and then proceeded to tear a large piece of the rockery plant of the wall top and deposit it into a carrier bag!! The cheek of it!
Of course I let him know he had been spotted I think word is SHEEPISH
I was given this object by longstanding guests Derek and Vicky they said they had wondered what to buy the man who has everything ( it can not be they are talking about).
What is it you ask, well you will have to guess, suggestions on a postcard as they say.
