Who has come to live in the garden with the senior under-gardeners and the Spice Girls?
All will be revealed in 2010 in the next episode of Purple Podded Peas ;-)
In the meantime, Cliff and I are getting ready to see in the New Year and the Blue Moon at a Murder Mystery supper (the dessert is cooking - it's Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's Chestnut and Chocolate Truffle Cake - yum yum), the studio assistants are curled up asleep somewhere warm and we wish you all a very very happy New Year - Hurrah!
See you in the New Year
