"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    What a great story about Felix. Only the British!

    I'm not sure if there will be many takers for the parking space in Hyde Park at that sort of price. I think you'd have to be bonkers to leave your Mercedes parked out there if you didn't want to get it nicked, regardless of CCTV cameras in the area.

    The future is ours-state agents! ;)

    The Daily Mail revealed the startling price of land in London with a story that a parking space behind Hyde Park Gardens has gone up for sale for £350,000 – almost twice the price of the average UK home.
    The spot measures just 19.5ft x 8ft and has 88 years left on the lease. Flats in the area can sell for more than £10million.
    The estate agents described it as: “A rare opportunity to purchase a private parking space for one car, located behind the prestigious Hyde Park Gardens and ideally located for the transport links of the M1 and March Arch underground line.”

    Custard creams are one of my least favourite but maybe this is just because they're so sweet @Bubbly. I think another reason why Bourbon biscuits are so popular in the UK is also because they are one of the cheapest brands.

    @mheredge it means that Brits aren't extravagant. :)

    It's not me @gomaa, it's Amatsu. :)

    If you want a sickly sweet English biscuit, try Jammy Dodgers.

    Ugh Jammy Dodgers @Lynne! How awful.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge what is so awful about Jammy Dodgers?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,060 mod
    They are so sweet and sickly @Bubbly. They are used to shut up whining kids.

    @mheredge I don't like so sweet and sticky biscuits and chocolates. :)
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,060 mod
    I was very naughty and had some tiny chocolate chip biscuits with my tea last night @Bubbly. But maybe because they were so small in size or because they weren't too sweet, they were rather good.

    @mheredge small memorable moments! You must have enjoyed it. :)
