I'm not sure if my comment came through but son't want to bother you with a repeat, Zoe. It is just so funny - especially as, among her cleaning products, my mother left her Omo on the scullery windowsill when I was little. I'm wondering if she had a secret life......?

Loved the ladle pic, Zoe with cook ladling into Bert. I have heard of older women using OMO in sentences about other ladies but it was in the days when my mam and mother in law s-p-e-l-t some things out, lol... I think OMO always had connotations, maybe it was a music hall/variety joke...

LOL, Jenni! Assuming she didn't have a secret life, I hope she was blisfully unaware of what the neighbours were likely saying about her! ;)  Unfortunatley I didn't get a comment through from you but thank you for trying and for commenting here - I don't know why the comment boxes on blogs are so unreliable.

Thanks, Jeanette! The music hall theory sounds like a good one to me and you did make me laugh about the spelling things out loud - so true of my mother and her friends/relatives too!

This has been a great tale,Zoe. The photos are superb- not to mention the characters! Still can't post comments on your blog but have so enjoyed reading the goings on at Agar Hall.

Thanks Anita. I love Corny's van too and by total coincidence, I've just identified the maker of it today!  I would have posted photos here but I still can't upload them so, if anyone is interested, I've done little blog about it here:

What a brilliant discovery Zoe! I like your excellent Korbi repair as well.

I commented on both blog entries, but the comments seem to have vanished into the ether :/
