Plant ID please

Actually I looked up the Latin name by Googling Belle de Nuit! I live in France and friends have them as pot plants.

FG, if you have enough bubbly you will be on a cloud anyway and won't notice how many steps!

Daughter has now said I mustn't give up our room as I need to sleep. Have 5 hour drive on Monday to help Son 1 with LOs while they move into new house. They will arrange it a different way.

But they are family! Not the same as PGs. By the way, did you see what I wrote about B&B rules?

That pool looks horrific. I hate heights. I would have thought you'd need several glasses of champagne before climbing the Shard!

Busy weekend. All the family will be here from tomorrow. We'll have to sleep in son 2's room and Son 2 and family will have to sleep in our room as they have 2 babies in cots, 13 months between them. Our room is bigger and one cot will be in our ensuite! 10 adults and 9 little ones in all. Good thing there are 7 bedrooms in this old farmhouse.

If you "Google" Agapanthus Big Blue there are various sites about it, such as this one

I rarely water my Rosemary, they like to be quite dry.

Sorry Verdun, I got the scones back to front for Devon and Cornwall! Wikipaedia says there should be butter as well! OH would rather have Dove's cheese scones.

I'm glad you are a happy Womble

DD, we have slept in quite a few B&Bs. They all have rules, often printed in the information book in the bedroom or in reception. Rules are - clients must be out of the house by 10.30am or 11am and must not come back before 4 - 5pm. In the Daily Telegraph book about running a B&B it says that clients must realise that B&B owners often have other part time jobs, at least they have to have spare time without clients for cleaning, shopping, cooking, gardening - therefore clients should go out sightseeing during the day. I have stayed in B&Bs that forbid the use of the pool before 5pm as they or their families want to use it.

A B&B is not a hotel. It is the owner's home.
