For Little Boots and I it was a weekend of simple pleasures.

 Making popcorn to accompany a favourite old movie, pricking out some seedlings, making a small cold frame from a load of old wood and junk, and just general noodling.

All in all it was very satisfying and a paen to these cash strapped times.

Until the whacking great HD TV and tardis-sized fridge-freezer turned up – purchased by virtue of a modest legacy.

I know which I preferred.

But I am being a Luddite I know – after all if you haven’t seen Adrian Chiles’ nose-hair you haven’t lived.
