Class

P1020771 (2)Earlier in the week I was, for my sins, a panelist at a “Gardener’s Question Time” event in a local garden centre.  I was joined by two others whose joint CV’s were extensive and involved phrases such as RHS examiner, lifetime in horticulture, university lecturer, supplier of vegetables to supermarkets, explorer and astronaut*.   Luckily neither of them professed cartwheeling expertise so it was just as well that I could fill this gapping hole in the knowledge base.  It was a bizarre event, one might say an out of body experience, but for all that not unpleasant.  On the whole the audience were a jolly crew with an assortment of questions, some of which I even knew the answer to.  Unfortunately none were queries concerning acrobatics of any sort, although I did have the subject covered.  You will be pleased to know that I brought a little class to the proceedings by telling my knickers in the seaweed story.  Not even the astronaut could trump that!
