She is currently pretending to be a launderer treading cloth. Awesome!

She's just a little bit bonkers (in a good way)

The 3D map is really good.

DH says the laser scanner thing is about 30 grand's worth and the images take up a memory drive the size of Pluto.

I must be thick because I don't understand what was written on the wall in the brothel, she made out like it was obvious but dh and I both looked at each other confused (and I briefly did Latin at school blush!)

It said 'I fucked'.

Really enjoyed that programme. Such enthusiasm.

I'm guessing the bbc want the programme to be shown in schools wink
