Just seen the news - hope our Sheffield forumites aren't near enough to be affected by the smoke.  We sometimes get heath fires round here, and the smoke spreads for miles - have had the girls kept in at school before now.  Take care up there

Morning all

Can't remember what colour Dixon of Dock Green wore - telly was black and white then.

mizzly drizzly here again.  Went out for a long walk with littlest chicklet yesterday evening, came back at dusk, and who was there to greet us on the footpath but Brock the Badger - looked at us for a few seconds and then trundled off.  Made us very happy.  Closely followed by 2 deer and a fox, we felt like we were on safari.

Love it too.  It shows on BBC2 in England on Sunday morning - just after the repeat of Gardeners World.  I record it and then sit down for a treat on Sunday evening
