Lyn, France, at least, Dordogne is warm in summer but colder than England in winter. It has been -8° a few times already.

Don't worry, DD, you are a good cook. Charlie's room will look great, I've seen the websites for your B&B, looks just the sort of place I try to choose when we go away. Your bedrooms are lovely.

I was reading the thread that sthindngrower posted about a privet hedge and so looked at previous posts and found this one. This is a question I'd asked some time ago as I have several very old climbing roses. So thank you to Dove for posting that video which has shown me exactly what to do. I'd been told to do that and removed some old wood but lacked the courage to do it properly.

Hello Flumpy. Thanks for rescuing the Marmite, Panda.

I think everything I don't like has already been put in room 101!

Oh, has anyone mentioned men who spit phlegm on the pavement?  Or don't they do it in the UK?

Lyn's Birthday on 12th is the same day as my adorable granddaughter and OH's aunt, who will be 97.

Morning all. Gloomy -2°.

Haven't taken down decorations yet, busy yesterday. Hope to do it today. Then must do some HW.

Like Edd, I prefer the white one. Ginagibbs, there are 2 tastes if you do it like Dove - leaves like spinach, stems separately with butter or hollandaise sauce.

Love Marmite, have it for breakfast nearly everyday.

I think among the most awful are those crooks who send letters to elderly people telling them they will win thousands of pounds if they send a cheque for £15 or so to enter the prize draw. I know an elderly lady who got so many she spent all morning writing cheques and spent all her pension.

Lyn, I used to live in Smarden, north of Tenterden. Daughter went to piano lessons in Tenterden. Didn't know Ashford is humble-tumble, Wintersong. It was quite small then, before the motorway and the tunnel. I used to shop there and sold Jersey calves in the market. 2 of my children were born there.

Crikey, this thread was only started yesterday and is already on page 6! Must be a lot of things that people don't like, I haven't read past page 1 yet.

I don't like bindweed and brambles and people who stand and chat in the narrowest places in the supermarket so you can't get past. I'm sure there are lots of other things, I'll have to see what you've all put. But some of the TV shows you don't like, like reality TV and cookery, I do like - but not all of them.
