Have a great time all of you, dont forget the photos.

Oh that's a shame   but quite understand.  Camera batteries have been charged.

So the rest of know where we're meeting and when?  You and I have mobile numbers Nut, and I have Panda's and she has mine so I think we're sorted 

If this weather carries on it'll be sun hats, sunscreen and ice creams all round  - it was 26.4C in the shade here today.  

Panda - I think we may have our top down tomorrow morning

Top down Dove

Have a brill day please save KEF some icecream she loves it.

Is Fidget coming? I have hers if she is  And I know what she looks like 

Ooo, top down! Guess Mr Dove isn't coming 

19/05/2014 at 20:08

We're still on. Plants sorted.

Do you want a baby tree paeony Panda? Won't flower for a few years but worth waiting for

Have a lovely day everyone. I really would be there like a shot to meet you all if it were easier to get to xx
19/05/2014 at 20:10

Where are you BB? Can you find somewhere near you?

19/05/2014 at 20:13

Have a lovely time everyone, wish I lived nearer.

Lots of pics please

Sadly Mr Dove has to work as one of his colleagues is on annual leave

Nut we live in Lincolnshire - north of the county. To get to Bressingham I would have to drive to Newark, which is 40 - 45 mins, then the train journey involved going to Peterborough, changing for Cambridge, changing for Diss. It varied according to the time of day, but on average took 3 hours. So that would be seven and a half hours travelling, plus leaving all childcare duties to Mr. Bee, who has to go to a parish council meeting tomorrow night, which for someone with M.E. (chronic fatigue syndrome) would have been too much to cope with!! And, tomorrow night teenage son will be packing to go to Germany for a week on the school exchange, (leaves Weds morning). However, I am seriously toying with the idea of going to the GW Live exhibition on the Friday, so if anyone else is up for coffee or something in Birmingham, I think it takes me about 1.5 - 2 hours to drive there - so just about do-able.

Sorry BB, still too far for me  but have a lovely time 

19/05/2014 at 20:42

Why don't you start a thread for a GW meetup BB?

I can't be there.  Got a big wildlife count to do starting Friday PM.

We need a mid Lincs garden to do a meet up.

You could've got a train from Peterborough to Norwich then I could've picked you up BB   but it would still have been a long journey for you.... and I quite understand about the ME - daughter had it through her teens and twenties following glandular fever - totally mucked up her education and much of what should've been a brilliant time of her life.

Just looked that up Dove, but from Newark, the only conceivable train would be 2 hours and 57 minutes, so still nearly 3 hours, although if I went at another time of the day it would be two and a half hours. I will indeed do a 'blind date' for coffee thread when I finally get around to buying my ticket. Was considering going on the train, but car probably better if I wanted to buy some plants.

One day maybe ...................... 

19/05/2014 at 23:05

If it's not too late, yes please Nut 

Bee, 3 hours is nothing! I've met up with Forkers in Nottingham and I live in Essex! But then I am totes bonkers  I also don't have LO's!

20/05/2014 at 06:33

Perhaps we could arrange a Lincolnshire meet sometime - we could stay at MIL's in S. Lincs which would mean we were halfway there already - I'm quite keen on seeing the walled gardens at Normanby Hall - where else is there to choose from in your direction? 


Anyway, we digress - for today the forecast has changed a bit and they're talking about the possibility of thundery showers this afternoon - I'm not going to allow it and will get Fg to wave her wand (however, I shall bring a waterproof jacket as everytime I do that it's never needed).  More important will be sunscreen, floppy hats and money for icecream   oh, and fully charged cameras 

See you soon Panda - you know where and when 

20/05/2014 at 06:58

Have a great day, guys! Don't forget the photos!
