    Nope, that's attributable to 'Bumps' aka The lovely PumpkinBecki. Mine aren't nearly so polite

    My others are things like 'Chuff it!' 'Chuffin' 'eck/ell...' etc

    I am however, responsible for the origination of the typo 'Christmad' for which I seek no apology, as it is wholly appropriate and, in fact, now a commonly used alternative.

    Blowaway - a temporary greenhouse consisting of a polythene cover over a tubular metal frame - often resembling a tent, known for its susceptibility to winds.

    Gardener's Rest is actually the home of the most convivial virtual pub on the interweb. It has the most Glorious pint of the Black stuff imaginable and a space specially reserved for me. . Well I'm always first in and last out. . It is also the home of the most popular barmaidAttachment 58014.
