I love your favorite smells. Mmm, grilled onions are heaven. And, I am in total agreement on your bon mots about Ms. Materfamilias. Ooh,and I must know what you get at M&S? I don't even know what that is or what they serve. I am curious.

Aw shucks! you're so nice about me (and LBR's agreeing, even though we talked behind her back about the Birks ;-))
This meme was worth waiting for -- it's been such fun to read all the varied responses to it, and I love seeing which ones we have in common (I forgot about grilled onions -- how could I!). My osmanthus is blooming right now and as I walk by the next few weeks I'll have an extra sniff or two thinking of my internet friend in London . . .
