Matron Strikes Gold!


I was out digging in the garden over the weekend when I struk gold!  Who would have thought it?  There I was minding my own business, weeding my suburban allotment in West London when...

Lo and behold I caught something glinting in my dark London clay soil!  So, gold pan in hand (I just found one in the potting shed..) I headed for the water butt to do some more panning.  Nugget after nugget they just kept coming. 
I'd better not tell anyone, look what happend in the Klondike... there was a gold rush!

We're often reading about someone in the U.K. finding/digging up some 'Roman' treasure, so nothing would surprise me. Too bad it was an April Fool's joke!!
