...The Sparkly One announced.
"A blue one."
Well, obviously. The pink ones were just too...girly.

Joy of joys! I had the fabulous "Bubble and Squeak Cake" for lunch at The Old Spotted Cow.

Every all-day breakfast should be this good.

I just hadn't realised this was the final match of the series.
