My lovely neighbour Joy went to an orchard yesterday, and brought me back 8 kg of Golden Queen peaches. I love Golden Queens. They're the biz. I'm gonna get all hausfrau and bottle them.
When she handed the box of peaches over the fence, Joy said "Here you go love! These'll have you shitting through the eye of a needle!"
Then, when we were chatting about her reaction to something that happened in her family, she said "I was halfway between a shit and a shiver!"
Later, Simon was talking about something going very fast, and he said "It was like shit off a shiny shovel"
Sorry about all the bad language, but those three expressions made me laugh like you wouldn't believe, and I just had to share. And I figured that with all the bottling fruit/sewing cushion covers/quilting talk that's been going on lately, we could do with a little wickedness around here. I wouldn't want you to think I'm toooooooo wholesome.
