Morning all

Got back from my Peaks weekend late last night ...... so much to catch up on here, I don't know where to start.  So glad the wedding went well OL - wonderful pics - you all looked so lovely

Molly-in-a-bucket, and all my other plant gifts, made it home safely (many,many thanks fidget and nut).  Caused quite a lot of amusement that i had taken a watering can on my weekend away.  Had a really great weekend - lots of walking and lots of new friends made - seems eons ago that i was last at work.  Think i might have forgotten exactly how to mine that salt.......

Congratulations AWB - lovely news   Is she a sister for the 1st granddaughter, or a cousin?  Either way, i feel a nice airy tree will be in order (Although best make it robust enough fo her to climb in the tomboy years!)

Glastonbury's not til next weekend - Pdoc is letting the excitement slowly climb .

One more day at work this week - then 1st Barnsdale, and then the Peak District are calling me ....
