Isn’t it beautiful?

Isn’t it lovely? It would be perfect for the allotment (is it too early to hint for birthday presents if it’s in May?). It’s waterproof and you can connect your MP3 player. Just imagine beavering away in the shed chitting potatoes on a Saturday morning listening to Jonathan Ross, or transplanting courgettes to Chill on a Sunday afternoon. Or how about just lying back amongst the weeds on a warm spring evening listening to the Now Show or I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue? That would be great. Sigh. I wish these things weren’t so expensive.
