Glad Chicky and punkdoc had good times.

We went to Bodium Castle and took the steam train to Tenterden, where we had a lovely lunch.

SG Lily, my sister recently moved from Surrey, is now near the Ashdown Forest.

Morning all.

Going out with OH's daughter, SIL and their 2 LOs today. Little boy loves steam trains so may go on one.

Thank you Fidget and RB. Those are the peppermint creams that OH remembers, but forgot the name. I'll try Tesco for the Garibaldis. Simple pleasures are important when you're 97 and in a nursing home.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Bumping up for Mrs. Garden.

 Had lovely lunch out with OH's friends.

Just been to Sainsbury's to get Garibaldi biscuits and peppermint creams for OH's 97 year old auntie, but there weren't any. Does anyone know if they are still made and where to get them from please?

Morning all. Going to lunch with friends of OH who I haven't met before.

When we left France it was 24°, didn't think to bring a coat. Freezing here with the wind. Bought a fleece in a sale yesterday.

Glad it went well for you and Ma today, Dove.

Congratulations Fidget, great news.

Just back from meal in pub with brother, sister and BIL. My sister moved into new house last year, never been interested in gardening, was asking my advice on what to plant in the new pots her OH bought her. She has planted some bulbs, 3 clematis and some hollyhocks. Never known her plant anything. She works full time, said she was too busy.

Hope your back is OK tomorrow DD.
