It's a Warm 'n Norman!

...........sorry! when we were first married we lived in a terrace house in Leeds and we had a 90 year old next door neighbour called Norman......a lovely old chap :) On a warm day he would sit on the wall outside his house. Anyway my parents lived around the corner from us in those days and my dad used to greet Norman with 'It's A Warm 'n Norman' on a hot day. Well ever since then (which is 32 yrs ago) everybody in the family has said 'It's A Warm 'n Norman' on a hot day.......we use the term frequently when abroad lol. It's funny how these things stick. I have been sitting in the garden for the last hour.....sod the rest of the house work it's too nice to be indoors. Had a couple of Malibu and cokes too......can't you tell lol!
