Who's afraid of varginia creeper

It's hard to kill. It will probably grow new shoots if you cut off the old branches. I can't get rid of mine.

I live in France too. There are lots of houses covered with it here. I would get a local builder to have a look at it, he could tell you whether your house is being damaged by it.

Dove, I feel a bit guilty saying I was rather disappointed. I've seen paintings in various galleries before, including New York, which I loved. This exhibition was mostly rather crude drawings and paintings that looked unfinished. But there are other lovely painting by other artists in the gallery.

Sad about the bad news here and the old man, but glad about Liri's OH.

We've just had a lovely day in Cambridge, took the Park and Ride - which wasn't as good as the Park and Ride to Norwich. The ticket machines were complicated and the loos were shut, but we got there. Went to a wonderful music shop. OH plays the piano a lot when we are in France and he really misses it when we are at the cottage so he decided to buy a keyboard. Found just what he wanted and I paid some of it for his birthday present in February.

We had lunch in Côte as we'd liked the one in Norwich. The set menu is really good value.

In the afternoon we went to the Fitzwilliam Museum and wandered around the art gallery part. There was a Degas exhibition on, mostly drawings.

Or someone with horses. I used to use one to weigh the horses hay nets.

I hope that's good news, Punkdoc. Is it a well heart, a getting better heart or a still ill heart?

So you went to see the Rembrandt exhibition too, Dove. Did you enjoy it?

We are having a Christmas dinner at a local pub tonight, they are doing them through December.

It will be great to have your Rangemaster back in your kitchen, Obelixx.

We went to Wickes and I found that our kitchen in the cottage did come from them, but they are in a mess at the moment as they are re-doing their display area with kitchens and bathrooms and the place was full of noise and builders behind a walled off area. We just bought a white shelf for one wall of the small utility room and we will order a small wall cupboard for another wall another time when the kitchen person isn't having a day off.

Strictly is back!

I hope the TOE is OK, Punkdoc, and all goes as smoothly as possible.
