have you got a big chart on the wall and are you crossing out the days Dove?
As for helping you out - I think Tootles is just a bit closer to you than we are - but we're happy to come and supervise - we could bring sandwiches and cake - we owe you a lunch
i think you may be right about relative distance Dove, though I've never been really sure where Kesteven is. I thought it might be another of those invented places like Uttlesford, which I'd never heard of til I worked there.
Bring the sandwiches and cake any time you like. I've still got Cyclamen coum in a pot waiting for you. Which reminds me, the first of the Cyclamen hederifloium are out, I'd better weed round them before they get too advanced and I knock the heads off. I won't make the mistake of running the hover mower over them again though. Did that many years ago before I realised how far they were above ground level. One of the biggest got a shave. Didn't kill it, flowered round the edges for a couple of years and is OK now
