People have been talking about it on other threads, like Resurrected and Hello Forkers.


I thought it was rather slow, lots of "bonking", for want of a better word, in broom cupboards and alleyways, between a middle aged couple, married but not to each other.

Welcome back, Lily P, glad you had a good visit and the first smile  I hadn't read back when I posted earlier.


Have been booking ferry tickets for our visit in May. Got in a muddle as the little calendar on the website was too high up so it  didn't show the month, but I saw it was Sunday 30th so clicked, thinking April - but July has a Sunday 30th too  then didn't notice when I read it through. Had to ring them to change it.


We will be going to Norfolk, then the Malvern Spring Show with our friends there, who I met some years ago on the forum!

It's partially shaded by the greenhouse so it doesn't get sun in the middle of the day. But when the weather gets very hot the Sweet Peas don't survive, so they have a short flowering season here. But I would miss the scent if I didn't grow them.

Morning all. Thank you for the good wishes.


Thanks too for the rugby warning LB. Now I know when not to ring my sons! Both brought up in France, but they cheer for England. They say the French are too cocky when they win!


They aren't young bonkers in ATY Muddle-Up, they are middle aged, she says she has a body like a jelly baby.

Morning all. -7°


My sons, 39 and 33, never use their land lines and I get told off when I ring on them (cheaper for me than ringing a mobile) as they disturb their small children when they are sleeping. Even my French bank won't accept my land line. If I make an online payment the bank rings me on my mobile, but there isn't a signal here so it gets complicated.

aym, the seeds of Sweet Peas I find germinate well are Kings Seeds, but a Sweet Pea expert who used to post here liked Eagle Seeds.

Dove is right, they are Dill flowers. I sowed Dill in the veg garden some years ago and now it just pops up. As it's light and airy I leave it among the veg. I use the leaves for cooking then let it flower. The only problem is the cut flowers drop pollen! The white similar ones are Ammi Majus.
