Dove, I really agree with what you said. I used to have a smallholding too, not as varied as yours, chickens, ducks, Jersey cows. But we were sentimental about the ducks! Couldn't eat them, but they laid eggs, especially the Khaki Campbells, and I sold them. The girl calves went to market or were sold privately and the boys to the local butcher who had a licence. He was very good, I don't think the calves (not really calves by then, I kept them for over a year) knew anything about their fate. I think they had happy lives.

hi all from Worcestershire

Your house and garden look lovely, but too far away for me. I think this is genuine and it must be quite upsetting to sell your lovely house and everything. It's not at all like the kitchen ads we get here.

Oh Andy, what a shock, hope you get better quickly. Hope Matty's back gets better soon too.

I haven't swept a single leaf yet. Poured with rain for 3 weeks, now I'm visiting family and friends in England, going home tomorrow and weather forecast is wet again.

Went to Tunbridge Wells yesterday, lunched with friends in a beamy old pub. Don't have pubs in France. Went to a food fair today then lunch in another pub with OH's daughter, SIL and grandchildren and old auntie (95).

Morning all.

Went to "KIng Lear" at Chichester theatre last night. At least seven people died, mostly murdered, gloomy. They did a thunderstorm with real rain and huge claps of thunder, actors were soaked.

Going to Tunbridge Wells today, lunching with friends.

Have a good day everyone.

It was a nice day today, went shopping for C pressies for OH's daughter and grandchildren.

Was hoping to meet potty gardener at GC, but I wasn't able to give her any notice and didn't manage to contact her.

Tomorrow we are going to the Weald and Downland Museum where the Tudor Monastery Farm was filmed. Then we are going to look round Chichester, then see King Lear at the theatre.

Busy day today seeing family and old friends. Really strange, haven't seen my brother for over a year and he went to Portugal for work, we drove through a town in East Sussex where our mother lived (she died 19 months ago) and there was my brother on the pavement! So we went to a pub for lunch and to catch up on our news.

Hope all is well Stacey and you enjoyed the Chinese meal. We had Chinese tonight with OH's daughter and SIL.

Got Christmas smileys at last. Didn't have them in France yesterday morning.

Hello all. I'm in England now, but OH has a horrid cold, he's in bed having a snooze. We were in the Arnedale shopping centre in Eastbourne at 11am. There was a row of old soldiers with flags and the Mayor and his wife were there and a soldier played the Last Post. We had the 2 mins silence and I found it very moving. I thought of those who lost their loved ones in the war, like my grandmother who lost a fiancé and a brother. But years later she met my grandfather.

But I was surprised by shoppers who pushed past the silent crowd as though nothing was happening.
