Great photos DD - sounds like you all had fun

Thanks for littlest Chicklet's birthday wishes.  The big day is actually today, but she is at work, and Chicklet has to set off back to Nottingham late we made yesterday the day of celebrations  

Lovely sunshine here today - think we'll go for a walk.  Then Chicklet and I are going to sample the coffee shop where the birthday girl will be slaving away.

Have a good day folks - make the most of the lull before the next storm sweeps in

Sounds like a stressful journey Fidget, but glad you made it ok.  Enjoy your honeymoon under the sea. Let us know if you find any octopus's gardens

......sorry Hosta - I'm sure that apostrophe is in the wrong place....I've tried it every which way and none look right.  Maybe it would work better with octopi ....but I'm pretty sure that's not right either.  

And on that little grammatical conundrum, I will bid you all night night

Leadfarmer - I went to this when he came to Camberley last year - it was a great evening. He tells a really good story, and comes over really naturally.  Hope you enjoy it

Morning peeps

So glad that Mighty Atom is being Mighty Dove. I have a group of Magnet which is outshining the others at the moment.

Rotten feeling Pdoc ...hope you are a bit better today

No gardening this weekend, too busy with Chicklets (), but next weekend will be the start of my 2016 season.....must buy some seed compost, and the great tidy up will begin.  Will use the "how to eat an elephant" method
