    LOL Fairy, of course not image I just thought it was quite comical as I've never used it before and can't believe the reaction from my hounds image

    Petrol......urghhhhhhhh, when I was pregnant my hubbie had to fill the car up because to the smell made me feel so ill!

    I let my Choisya grow over the path because I love the spicy, savoury smell when I brush past.
