Ah Roger, I'll see your "Wheels on the bus" and raise you "London Bridge is falling down."

This was played on a plastic disk which slotted into a toy train which trundled over the carpet as it played.

Sounded (not sung) like "London bridge is falling down  - choo choo - choo choo" and so on, and on.

My oldest son loved it, there were other disks but London bridge was THE one for him.

I shamefully admit to hiding the batteries, sorry Gavin.

Oh God it's for sale on Fleabay.

Batteries can be replaced. I'd have reached for the sledgehammer.

Gee thanks Tarqs, only took me 40 years to get rid of the earworm, still, you got to admit it's catchy.

The best thing to come from taking the cooking classes was a renewed interest in cooking.

I never had confidence cooking fish for example, now I do. No more boxes of chipped into shape and battered fish pieces for us.

I made a Pavlova at home - another thing that is really easy to do but looks like an occasion.

Normally I would have put the pumpkin seeds out for the birds but this time I slow roasted them and boy are they tasty.

Yesterday I picked up a package of frozen spinach with the idea of challenging myself to make something great with it.

You get the idea - turning a chore into a hobby :-) I challenge you guys to make something different this week.

Good for you for including the pickle which was celebrated this week on national pickle day

Thankfully people are in a pickle on different days of the year - spreading out the chaos.
