For today's letter P we have:
noun - a thick savoury and usually pureed soup made from split yellow and/or green peas
origin - first written account is in 1711 when it was referred to as pease soup
pea-souper - a thick fog, sometimes containing poisonous gases
origin - 1800s London when people spoke about the thick fog in the city
Charts about peas include:
Pea Souper by Heritage Crafts
Sweet Pea Posy by Heritage Crafts
La Soupe by Thea Gouverneur
(I tried but couldn't find a chart specifically for pea soup)
My personal Ps include:
premature - Toby was born six weeks premature weighing just 4lb 11oz. He was in Special Care for 17 days before being allowed home. It was tough visiting him for only a few hours each day then leaving without him but I knew he was getting the best care possible.
Planet Rock - the ONLY radio station we have on in our house - and it's on nearly all the time!
Pepsi Max - I have to have my fizzy caffeine fix every day! I gave up fizzy drinks for Lent this year. I know Lent is about sacrifice and will power but never again will I go without my Pepsi!!! ;)
My P finish represents the birth of my premature son who was almost as small as the picture portrays:

I had a love-hate relationship with this project - the threads misbehaved, I kept misreading the chart and it all came out a bit drab-looking. But I've grown to like it over the years.
Tomorrow's Q might make you feel a bit peckish!
