About a week ago, I happened to listen to part of a telephone conversation between the Mhinisteir and one of his Churchwardens. I say listen and not eavesdrop because the Mhinisteir was using the phone in the bedroom and as I was already tucked in bed, I couldn’t move!
Halfway through the conversation, the Mhinisteir uttered the words SWEET PEAS. The Mhinisteir hasn’t a clue about anything horticultural. I am no better but I knew that Sweet peas aren’t petit pois!!!
Unfortunately for the Mhinisteir the penny only dropped the next day when the Churchwarden’s husband brought around the Sweet pea seedlings for us to plant in our garden!!!!
