Years ago when we converted an oast house, there was a massive brick wall that had to be demolished. We cleaned up all the bricks and saved them for the renovation work.

Lo, the terrible Goddess, Tiggz, Penfold and I got very bored and to amuse ourselves decided to give all the bricks different names.

I was reminded of this when I did a small job in the garden yesterday.

I would like to introduce you to Marvin, his half brother Alphonso, Sister Magnolia, Gerontious, Diatribe the 1st, Steptoe and son, Alfred the Less, Sharon, Uncle Cornucopia, Davy, the Thompson Twins and King Ell.

They have all fulfilled their destiny now by providing a base for the dustbins.


(You missed out Adrian – but there again, I can totally see why you’d want to. LO,TG Ed)
