  1. Catchy tune! Is that a child’s tree house on the left, or does it serve some other purpose?

    • It’s an adult’s tree-house with comfortable chairs, I am told!

  2. What a beautiful place to laze in!

    • It looks very appealing. My houseboy and the driver spent long and happy hours chatting there..

  3. That reminds me I must do my tax return.

    • I did mine on-line last week – in fact, I did three year’s worth of them – the Inland Revenue suddenly seem to have rediscovered me! And I’ve been issued with a new tax code, almost identical to the last one.

    I wish I could have bananas hanging under the eaves, what a treat. I suspect that you have varieties other than the Cavendish that we get here. They are not ripened properly now either…

    I don’t have to pay tax any more, isn’t that wonderful?

    Thank you for the link to the Kinks, a favourite band in my youth.

    • Many, many varieties of banana. (Good grief, I’m beginning to sound like Betty Marsden in Round the Horne!) Bananas to eat as fruit, and to cook in curries.

      Congratulations on being declared a tax haven!

      My single claim to fame as a youth was that I went to the same school as Ray Davies. Well, sort of.. He had been there some years earlier, and his school formed part of amalgamated Comprehensive which I attended.
