Good morning everyone!  I hope you're enjoying the long Jubilee weekend.  I have a confession to  make - I'm cheating on my blog today.  I'm actually writing this post on Sunday evening (while watching the Gary Barlow programme on TV) and, fingers crossed, Blogger will publish it for me at 8am on Monday so I can have a lie-in.  Woo!

Did you guess the theme of Friday's blog?  It was, of course, Reservoir Dogs.  And now on to today's blog and it's literally bananas!  Enjoy!
