I am very close to you Peanuts (near Farnham) and I lose mine nearly every year.  Took some cuttings about a month ago, which seem to have taken, and about to do some more today.  Well worth the effort though

"Can we stay in the car til the end of the chapter" has a very familiar ring to it

Welcome back LilyP - sounds like a wonderful (if exhausting) time.

And lovely to see you DD - hope this is the start of a new, positive and much calmer era for you.  Stephen Fry reading HP reminds me of every holiday we have ever taken that involves a car.  One particular one, in California, we finished 23 hours of the halfblood prince, and had to visit a Barnes and Noble to buy the Deathly Hallows ......the american version is read by an Englishman (who's name escapes me) but not Mr Fry took a bit of getting used to

Last night's excursion was uneventful, so we were in bed and πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ by 2.30.  Just been woken by littlest chicklet returning from Reading .....tired, dirty and very happy.  She has now gone off to a) wash her hair and b) sleep.  Her belongings are in quarantine outside the front door

we have buzzards (similarly mobbed by crows) here too - love to hear their cries.  Occasionally see them perched in a far off tree, but never in the ground.

Weeding for me today, and trussing up my raspberries so that my early morning breakfast pick has less of an amazon feel about it

Hiya Pat

Still awake here . Managed to find Notting Hill on a movie channel, so just finished watching that.  One of those films I normally only stumble in on when its halfway through, so nice to see it from the beginning.

Another hour to go before I head out a few more chapters of the book should see me right.  Don't expect any postings from me at the crack of dawn tomoz

Washout of a day here - so curled up on the sofa and read instead.  Lark Rise to Candleford .....excellent if anyone is looking for a gentle read.

Volunteered to pick Chicklet up from a club at 2am will be looking for someone to talk to on here later .....need to have something to stop me dropping off in front of the TV.

Great job on the tap Dewdrops - bet it lasts a good deal longer than the hozelock bits it is connected to.
