Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
Thank you to Mr Steele for letting me know about 'Cheese Logs' (what wood lice are know as in Berkshire! A little research over our BBQ later, did you know...
in Cornwall wood lice are known as 'Gramersow' (news to me!), in Kent they are called 'Monkey-Peas', they are 'Chiggy/Chucky Pigs' in Devon and in Austrailia they are called 'Butchy Boys'! Who knew there was so much to say about wood lice... They say you learn something new every day!
Best wishes and happy chocolate eating,
