April Fools Day

Well, Easter has been and gone. We had the Boy Wonder to stay, and true to form he spent the entire time with his head buried in his laptop playing Warhammer! I do worry about that boy, but it would appear he is typical of boys his age (15) so I suppose I shouldn't really. We had the usual surfeit of Easter Eggs (I think I had 3 altogether!)and Caiti came with her partner for lunch.

We had roast chicken, roast vegetables, stuffing and yorkshire pudding. At this point I should tell you I didn't cook it, as Hubby does all the cooking in our house as he's such a great cook. The day he moved in I handed the kitchen over to him and have never looked back since :-) Anyway we enjoyed our lunch and then sat in the lounge chatting about the forthcoming arrival (Jonah is due on the 4th April so anyday now!. I had been hoping he would put in an appearance either yesterday (my birthday)or today (April Fools Day!)but so far no sign.

Talking of April Fools Day, I saw the BBC's spoof this morning. Apparently a colony of flying penguins have been found in Antarctica! It was very well done, the film clips showing all these penguins flying was brilliantly done. I can't help wondering how many people it fooled. I always remember the famous Swiss Spaghetti Tree Harvest they did a number of years ago and how many people thought that was for real. There was another one in our local Metro newspaper, this was about a new BMW car that had electric shock technology installed that gave any dog that cocked its leg against the wheels a 200 volt shock! (I don't think so!)There was even a diagram purporting to show how the system works with a detailed technical description. Someone had obviously spent quite some time coming up with this (I cant help wondering if they had a personal reason for this particular choice of subject :-).
