According to Not the Nine O'Clock News, the aftertaste kinda lingers...
The memory kinda lingers iirc.

(I occasionally sing the “if I had a bomb and a plane to drop it from, I’d drop it on you, world leaders” and of course a verse or two from “I like trucking and I like to truck” Ah, they don’t write them like that any more). wink

I suggest you Google red breasted British birds.

'The most common explanation of the name is that Maynard hoped that the sweets would distract drinkers from alcohol, so he called them wine gums and labelled each one with a drink name.'
That worked well, then!

Every day is a school day, I didn’t know that either, but I did know why they are called “Red”, when they are more “Orange”, apparently .

On your recommendation I’ve done just that and to be honest was bitterly disappointed.

“I took the dress back but they didn’t have one in the right size so I bought four camping chairs”

On the bird theme...

We heard a Cuckoo the other day and I was trying to spot it in the trees, pointed out what I thought it might be and she said "that can't be it, it's way too big". I explained they are about the size of a long Collard Dove and again "no they're not, they are tiny". Confused, I asked her why she thought that...apparently it's because they must be small as the ones in clocks are always the same size and they are tiny.... And that's why I love her!

In a slightly dim moment last night, I had forgotten what a poultice was when it was raised in conversation.

Me - 'What's a poultice again?'

Her - 'A poultice!'

Well that's helpful; next time she asks what something is I'll just repeat the question back to her

I have just come in from shopping for tonight’s dinner
The kitchen smelt strange…
I opened the oven,… two wooden chopping boards singed at the edges were roasting away at 200C.
On enquiring why these boards were in the oven, apparently it was to dry them,…but she’d forgotten and gone off to do smothering else.

I singed a pair of jeans trying to dry them off in the oven once. Not my proudest moment.
