APRIL FOOLS I did a couple before noon ...harmless texting fun.

The problem is there are so many weird things going on; its diffult to spot the jokers.

But we all need a good laugh. (That said you do have to be careful with practical jokes.)

Dimblebys spaggeti growing on trees was memorable.

Told OH I was pregnant - he nearly passed out! (DS is 7 only 7 months!)

Will think of a few more for when he gets home...!

I assume that the piece on 'binaural radio' on Today was a rather weak attempt at a fool (yes, stereo works fine on my car radio, thanks) - totally blown by being followed by the Witter Thought for the Day being about April Fools day. Hmm. And then there was Graham Seed's attempted takeover of More or Less.

Yes, Rob brydon is funny; and good with voices. For my sins, I did tell
someone that "Gabby Logan had entered a nunnery in a Dior frock. She said '. For once I feel free. But it cost a fortune"

I hope she appreciates the joke. If she doesn,t, well its been nice knowing you.

One paper said Blue Peter is being axed, I though it was a bit obvious.

I wrote that it was my birthday on the whiteboard, under the date. Got quite a few happy birthdays before someone sussed my birthday is actually near X's and he was not born on April Fool's Day.

I am really Hmm about this one like is it/isn't it:

On the letters page of my local paper today, someone has written in to say that, on account of their having done such a good job on a similar project in their capital city, the Government of Moldova has been asked refurbish a notoriously nasty bus station in this county!

Well, it really could be true because the local council are loony enough to try anything!
