Goodie goodie goodie....don't tell me you used the weight-watchers' book to stand on to get to the cookie jar.....
Chris: Hehehe - I bet a lot of people have done just that thing Astrid!

I note that Ginnie and Astrid can already view your next day's photo, presumably in their early evening. That's confusing, because they're behind us in time yet they can view the day's posting earlier in the day.....
As for the two pictured, I'm well on my way there if I don't stop munching these Cadbury's Fingers on Special Offer..... chomp chomp
Chris: Yes Penny - Astrid & Ginnie are in America at the moment, hence being able to comment early. I suggest you put those bisccuits away and GO TO BED!
Indeed. I wonder what it was.
Chris: Intriguing isn't it..
good candid shot Chris....petersmile
Chris: Thank you kindly Peter
Oh! I wonder what she got?
Chris: We will never know I'm afraid Elizabeth..

Haha- a funny picture! The ladies could be sisters or twins like yourself and Bill!
Chris: Bill & I are not twins, we merely share a name, a hobby and a sense of the ridiculous
She found a slug in her sandwich by the look on her face

The surprise is that the bench has not collapsed wink I'm pleased the lady on the right has covered her knees.
Chris: This is a Phillips Super-Strength Bench, for persons of a certain disposition

I like this picture as a study of people Tiff. The barrier makes just that, a sense that we are the other side of something.
Chris: The other side of their lives, privacy and the river Avon too Chad

That stoic look - so used to receiving gifts.
Chris: Maybe it's just what she didn't want..
Next thing you know she will want to trade, offering her peanut butter and jelly for the surprise.
Chris: That is a possibility Mary

The calfs of the lady on the right are more voluminous than Alan Rolfe's big walker calfs!
Chris: Err..yes Philine!

That is why I avoid the salad ones, Dear...sometimes there is a half-caterpillar surprise awaiting...
Chris: Or, if she is lucky, a nice slippery slug..
Great candid, Chris!
Chris: I am obliged to you Tom
you were totally on the ball when you captured this shot Chris, great timing smile
Chris: Thank you Ayush
Far too engrossed to notice you Chris. It looks like an exiting moment
Chris: It certainly does Janet!
'Is that your tenth? This bench might not be big enough for both of us!'
Chris: To say the least it was under a certain amount of strain..

I hope she was pleased with it
Chris: So do I, whatever it was..
You don't get those in a sausage sandwich
Chris: Definitely not!
Is this where the expression 'big girls blouse' came from!
