Oh dear Nut - glad the party was good to make it worth the discomfort.  

OH and i once walked into a place like that after a family party - it was so horrendous ( filthy shower tray, complete with someone elses hair left as a souvenir .... Shudder) that we walked straight back out and slept on our relatives floor (under the dining room table!!).  That was in North Norfolk - hope it wasn't the same place!!

Mrs G - hugs and crossed fingers.

Similar here with acorns - plus have lost count of the times i have nearly jumped through the roof as they land on my car with the sound of a bullet.

Successful days shopping plus lots of laughs

No gardening

Trip to Bluewater to get a head start on festive shopping - meet with my sisters this weekend every year so we can get our "joint" presents together.  Not normally too busy yet, and there will be cake!

Yes please Mrs G - any with hazelnuts in??

glad you're feeling better enough to get outside Ggirl.

have decided there are good bits to autumn after all - fire is lit, snuggled under a blanket on the sofa with a good book (Curious Gardener by Anna Pavord is turning out to be very enjoyable!) , glass of wine, and Mrs G's chocs ..... And an iPad means i don't even have to leave the sofa to talk to you all.  What's not to like !!

Gourmet lunch Woody!

Had a great day out in the garden - got all my plants planted (they are now being naturally watered in)- and made a real dent in the weeding too.  One more day at it and i think i will be "clean" for the winter.  Managed to time my taxi driver duties so they coincided with the midday downpour, so didn't miss valuable garden time.  All very productive

any ideas for climbers up a fence?the fence runs east to west
