  1. Accent: London with some Brummie? What’s Brummie? And can you send me the recipe for the Alsation onion tart??

  2. Fragonard in Grasse is a great experience and that room at the end where you can mix and match is something special. We have some of thsoe magical blue bottles around the place here. And I just love the alsace lorraine onion tart. If I’m ever in that area I seek it out. Delish.

    Glad you’re feelin’ a bit brighter, too.


  3. Patti – Brummie is a Birmingham accent, it has a nasal twang. Not the most appealing accent, but I lived there for 10 years, so it was bound to rub off. And I’ll gladly send the recipe.

    Rashbre – I didn’t get blue bottles – mine are gold metal. I think I’ve been cheated!

  4. I expect your gold bottles are posher than the blue ones. Actually, I just checked their web site and they don’t seem to do the blue any more 😦 I can remember it was to do with the sunlight not affecting the perfume).

    Seeing your singing post – you might be interested to join the next daft (not weird) rashbre scheme? if so ping me to
