Oops,  past the curfew.  Aaaaaaaaaah!

Morning all. OH up early to drive to Glasgow, so of course I'm awake too. I might get another doze in a bit.

Morning all  My parcel arrived yesterday - warm jumpers now in chest of drawers

The sun's been coming up in a red-gold sky with lots of pink fluffies around - rain is forecast for later so as I've got the day off I'll use it to visit my parents and possibly pop a bit further south to see son and daughter-in-law.  Then when the weather picks up (as they've promised it will) I'll have tomorrow and the weekend to play in the garden 

Hope your back's better soon Stacey!

Talking of parcels .... My burncoose one arrived yesterday - and you were right Verdun, i was not disappointed. Lovely big healthy plants. Very excited by my new thalictrum hewitts double - was captivated by it both at Sussex Prairies and Wisley a week later. (And won't mention the WS for fear of being accused of gloating - lets see if i can keep them alive first).

On a train (again) - but earlier than usual so this is a seriously miserable hardened commuter one. Wonder what they would think if they knew i was talking gardening, rather than landing that next big deal!

Your commuting reminds me when I was a long distance commuter. Fares were reasonable, only £16 per month from Southampton to Waterloo!, fast trains , a seat, and tea and toast from the buffet car for the equivalent of 6p. Working on your laptop was confined to reading a newspaper!  Long time ago, and yes trains had been invented.

Tea and toast ! Now that does sound civilised!
19/09/2013 at 07:47

Oooh, tea and toast on the train - I remember travelling down south on the Brighton Belle to pick up a bridesmaid - we went First Class for a treat and had scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast as it was the week before we were getting married - in 1970!!!

Snap, I got married in 1970, but never travelled on the Brighton Belle. Nearest I got was watching the Bournemouth Belle steaming past the level crossing near my home. Used to stand on the footbridge and run through the steam. Happy days...

You're all very nostalgic this morning! 

I remember when it was all just fields...

Stop, stop - all i've got today is a brunch bar that tastes like cardboard

We lived in a very nice cave, it had wall paintings.

19/09/2013 at 07:56

We had running water Woody - down the walls...

fidget- hubby will need his brolly for Glasgow today- better for tomorrow though.

As I drove to work yesterday I could smell bacon sarnies - I've got the day off today - shall I make bacon sarnies for brekkie?  How many and who wants a slice of grilled tomato in theirs?

19/09/2013 at 08:00

I've had toast Dove- can you rustle me one up for lunch later? 

I'll send the tomatoes if you like- still got loads ripening away.

19/09/2013 at 08:04

I'm for a bacon sarnie please Dove 

Chicky, I like to listen to Famous Five stories when on a packed commuter train. It makes me chuckle to myself as fellow passangers are all so grumpy looking. Maybe I'm not so normal . . . 

19/09/2013 at 08:21

 Plenty of tomatoes here 

Bacon's under the grill .... 

19/09/2013 at 08:27

keep some for me- off to work in the lovely rain..

19/09/2013 at 08:31

I mustn't eat too much for brekkie as I am off to luncheon club with friends. Excited as it's my first time

19/09/2013 at 08:45

OK, just coffee for you then WW
