Collected car from garage, it was a support moteur, which I think is an engine mount. The car has been vibrating a bit, it was serviced recently and I told them, but no change so I had its tyres balanced and was told there wasn't much problem, but it still vibrated.

Then on the way home (403kms) yesterday the vibrations were much worse and there was a low deep sort of noise. Garage man said the engine mount had broken and the engine had actually slipped down and I was lucky to get home. Well, why didn't they take any notice when I first thought something was going wrong?

I did acro branching with my daughter and friends a few years ago. I was absolutely terrified. There were 10 levels of difficulty. I only managed the first 2!

Now preparing for charity BBQ here on Sunday. Went shopping for it this morning. Lots of clearing up, cleaning and preparation to do. Place is a tip!

Well done Wonky!

Morning all. Got back from son's (helping with house move and 2 little granddaughters) yesterday.

New house, lovely, mix of old farmhouse and barn conversion, but still lots of work to do on it, 5 hours drive away. 3 hours country  roads, got fed up with following queues of caravans and camping cars, 2 hours motorway. Car has got noisy, think exhaust needs looking at, going to garage soon.

Haven't read back yet, except this page. Is Wonky moving? I hope Pat is OK.

Lily P, Matty is OK, but has been busy and her new rescue dog has been a bit of a handful because of her nerves, but is settling down now.

Looks lovely, Artjak. Is it this one? 

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Thick long branches won't work as cuttings. You need small thin pieces of new growth with a growing tip on them, cut just below a leaf node. Don't feed until after they have taken. It may work just by putting the shoots in a glass of water. Then pot into compost when roots appear.

Bit fed up but always a silver lining......
