Morning all And especially Spike

Not sure about this Indian Summer - we have been in permanent cloud here for the past few days

Hope Dove's new laptop is sorted out soon ..... we miss you

Steve - boiled fruitcakes are easy, store well and are not fussy about a reliable oven.  I have a recipe passed down from my grandmother, but its not in my head.  Let me know if you can't find one on the internet and I'll send it over.  Its mostly butter, mixed fruit and some flour cooked in a saucepan, then baked for a couple of hours on a very low heat.

 Glad Dad is home Fidget - even if that means new challenges.  And glad you are home too Lesley - been away a while.

Something has been eating my chillies and toms...

We have mice eating peppers, chillis and aubergines - but seem to leave the tomatoes alone.  However we do have climbing slugs, which are partial to red toms

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
