Do you remember the children's story about Chicken Licken? She found a grain of wheat in the farmyard and asked each animal in turn would they help her plant it...and they said said 'Not I !' eventually, after going through the planting and watering etc on her own 'cos no-one else would help, the day came when she made a loaf of delicious fresh crusty bread...and asked the other farmyard animals if they would like some...and they all said 'Yes !'

When I'm up to my armpits in vicious stinging nettles and inadvertenly stepping in cow poo and getting my fingers pricked by thorns while I'm picking Blackberries and Himself sits in the car looking bored and slightly cross...and then I pick out the insects and weigh out the sugar and syphon it off and clean the demi-johns and fill the bottles...and ask him....would he like to try some of the Blackberry wine? And he answers...yes please...don't mind if I do....I shall follow Chicken Lickens lead and run away with the bottle laughing like a drain...
