Local geography now duly improved  and you are absolutely right on the Sleaford front

Hubby is ok thanks - we are just a bit edgy after the chest pains/hospital dash at the weekend (well he is edgy, I am trying not to be, but not sure I will be getting too many Oscar nominations for my performance) .  Good news is that we heard today that the second op has been brought forward a week - so only 2 and a bit more weeks to wait.  Thinking positive thoughts, and hope we will be well on the road to recovery by the time you return with your golden tan

New Allotmemt- help with designing needed

Hi Charlotte - if you want some entertaining reading, but with lots of practical allotment tips sprinkled throughout, I can recommend Kay Sexton's books - Minding my peas and cucumbers, and the allotment diaries.  They inspired me, and made me laugh along the way.  They also have a really good explanation of crop rotation (as opposed to rotovationwhich might help you in future years.  Good luck with it all.

Morning all

Used to love cross stitch Yvie .... Is yours a Christmas design?  Or is Christmas just a handy deadline?

Got back from hospital yesterday evening, reassured that all is well.  Only 3 and a bit more weeks to get thru til the last op.  Might need to adapt an advent calendar (with chocolates) to get me through.

Much wind overnight here too ....will go and have a wander in a bit to see if anything moved.

In our thoughts

Love my iPad mini Pdoc ....perfect for forum viewing. You'll wonder how you ever managed without one

Another adventure with OH yesterday - they rushed him into hospital yesterday afternoon and kept him in overnight (wanted to do a 1am blood test).  It seems all is well and he gets to come home later.  Think my adrenalin levels are now on empty
