  1. You really should learn to spin….posh yarn spinning fibres? Yes please. It’ll also effectively double your stash and take your life expectancy to 412 🙂

  2. You’d love my breakfast room at the moment – I’ve got a tank full of 30 ‘baby’ giant african land snails (they’re only 2-3 inches long at the moment) that I’m babysitting for the pre-school until someone takes them off our hands – want one?! Free to a good home …

  3. I would love another snail, mine is at least five years old and that is at the end of his natural life span. His name is Gary and he is very handsome, and not slimey, just slightly sticky.
