I was sold last night

For £33.

Or to be more accurate, £33.33 pence recurring.

There was an auction last night in Linden in aid of Mutende Children's Village, and two friends and I offered to do a Ground Force-style garden make-over. Those of you who know anything about me will know that I'm not good at growing things but I am very good at destructive gardening. Give me a patch of land to clear and I'll be in my element. Fortunately the two friends are good at the planning and planting bits so it should turn out all right.

And we were sold for £100. And worth every penny I'm sure. If only for my Charlie Dimmock impersonation ...

I'm a great believer in human trafficking...especially when it's for a good cause. Well done, Liz, and I'm sure the garden will be beautiful.

How much do you think you would get for your other half?

You're a brave woman putting yourself up for sale! I didn't realize you had a talent for clearing land for planting a garden--I would have put in a bid for you, too!
