it does, and one of our new cupboards in our kitchen smells distinctly of it - of course it is now lovingly referred to as the 'gis' cupboard by dh

ANYONES rice pudding is better than that. Even Neil out of the Young Ones

those ambrosia cows have a lot to asnwer for!!

smoggie Thu 15-Feb-07 22:31:17

quadrophenia - I'd noticed the pollen smell too, tends to be in v grassy riverbanks/woods etc. Eughh

lulumama - unfortunately it's in the cupboard with the glasses so is opened quite often...needless to say our quaint nickname is never used in public!! I dread to think what some apprentice joiner was potentially up to whist making it. God, please no, make it a sheer coincidence and it's just the natural aroma of the wood.

I knew a bloke who drank a lot of coffee.

And in one drunken moment, his girlfriend told me that he tasted like coffee.

All of him.

I nearly boaked my chai tea!

BuffysMum Thu 15-Feb-07 22:33:12

bellarosa Thu 15-Feb-07 22:33:27

donnie Thu 15-Feb-07 22:33:52
