Mmm... hibi.Whilst standing in Sainsbury's on Friday night, wondering how Lisa was going to fit all those Chelsea Buns in the freezer, I happened to notice a bottle of Simply Hibi. Yes, Simply Hibi. It's an infusion of Hibiscus flowers and grape juice which, according to the website, is "for busy, health conscious people". Which is obviously me to a T. Naturally I bought a bottle, and have spent the past few days enjoying its "natural goodness and deliciously unique flavour", which I'd describe as a cross between cough medicine and anti-freeze.

I'd have given up by now, but I refuse to throw away anything remotely edible, and I presumed there was no other use for the stuff. How wrong I was. I saw an advert last night for new 'Herbal Essences Deep Nourishment & Shine Shampoo', the main selling point of which appears to be that it's infused with... Hibiscus. Apparently it "gently moisturises your hair from root to tip [which in my case is not very far] to restore its shine, leaving you and your hair feeling replenished, revived and reinvigorated. Yes, not just my hair, but me too. Frankly Clairol are making bolder health claims than the Simply Hibi people. I'm taking my bottle out of the fridge and putting it straight in the shower.

Anyhoo, flower power aside, the good news is that fans of romantic fiction finally have something to get their teeth into, because I've finished updating my Lisa page. It's a triumph of style over substance, and before you ask, yes, I did have permission to say all of that. Well, most of it. To be honest she hasn't read it yet, but I'm sure she won't mind.
