I hope you enjoyed your lunch today - I think you are 6-8 hours ahead of me, so you should be sitting down with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit about now. Remember the nursery rhyme "With a roly poly, gammon (or in this case, bacon) and spinach, hey ho says Anthony Rolley."? Please let me know whether you enjoyed it or not.
