cheap at all but secateur-wise, the best pairs (I have two) I've ever
had. They have household as well as garden things.

Thanks for all of the ideas. Many of them are really tempting, esp. the
hollidays.
My auntie gave me the answer. A Lambretta scooter. Reykha has always wanted
one of he own.
Well I have 3. One which is complete (sx200 mine), and 2(Li150) which I am
slowly getting spares for.
I am in the process of buying her a GP200 in her favourite colour, red.
Just under 2000 and am waiting for DVLA to confirm ownership and milage.
I am pretty confident since it is presently owned by a fellow bike club
member.
I will have that bike here, as soon as I have the word from the DVLA.

Thanks to all.

Glad youv'e found an answer.
Though I thought that a Lambretta was what French sheep wore on their heads.

'o's, other wise it doesn't work the 'ose pipe or panty 'ose, the

And the first bit is wrong as well should be "for' khandles" as in
handles for forks.

in Italy too.


Notes for travellers. If an Italian is wearing either a biretta
or a beretta, he should be addressed as monsignor.

I thought a Ford was a shallow place in a river or stream.
I also thought that a Hillman was not an imp.
Viva meant alive.

Looking at that site I recognised the step ladder which Monty used
when pruning his HIGH hedge on Friday night!

I noticed that ladder, and was wondering if I should get one of
that design. Currently I work rather too close to the top of my
existing steps for some pruning tasks, and caravan roof cleaning.

Clearly I don't want one that is too big, but since the safe
standing height is 2 or 3 steps from the top (what do they put
the other steps there for?) I'm not sure if I would be any better
off, and could end up with an expensive white elephant that was
unwieldy and difficult to store.

The extra steps are to hang your basket, bucket, tin of paint etc. from
or for those wanting them for suicide.
