Ooh, is that after Paul's five-star recommendation? Mr Col did "kind-of" enjoy it as well.

I have been purchasing "Easter gifts" for the offspring as they are no longer so chocolate-focused as in younger years -

DVDs of Twilight: Breaking Dawn and Sherlock Series Two - so something for everyone there!

I'm not fussy.

Another freebie. Via the sheer brilliance of the Internet and a local Freecycle forum a total stranger just gave Mrs JM two free tickets to see Orbital in Glasgow this Saturday. Someone can't go - so he gave the tickets away. Suchiehall Street on Saturday night. Must remember to leave my tools off my belt; at home.

Considering your steady stream of pics over on the nature thread, Amner, I could see this one really appealing to you. I'll be very curious to hear your thoughts.
