  1. I read about this in last weeks Radio Times and have been wondering what object I'd choose!
    I won't listen to all the programmes just the ones that are of specific interest. Flighty xx

  2. I've been thinking about what object I'd choose too. I don't think I own anything that would be exciting or interesting enough.
