Like my father before me I have a weakness for toffees. Unable to keep to just one I never keep them in the house. However in an effort to sabotage my manly figure my cousin bought me some for Christmas. Here is evidence of the shameful result, a whole bag in one sitting!

Here are the first few lines.
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there,of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
Do look up the rest or buy Mike Scots CD.

I was thinking all this while painting this peaceful picture! Is that a happy dog I see in it?
