I'm on Jamie's Bandwagon

I missed the episode but in Jamie Oliver's recent 30 minute dinners TV series, he plopped a jasmine tea bomb into hot water as a decoration. My brother saw it though and when he found a box of them in a local Chinese store, he bought a couple for himself and one for me. They're cute little things, a ball shape, about the size of a two pence coin. When you put them into hot water they slowly unfurl to reveal a string of jasmine flowers.

As for the layout, this is my interpretation for this week's sketch by Kirsty. It was a clean and elegantly simple design which meant it was really easy to convert.

That is a wonderful LO and now I've got to find a Jasmine Tea Bomb. With all the Chinese friends I have and all the Jasmine tea I drink you'd think I'd already know about them. What have you done to me!!
