Dove - rather a lot of slugs in our grass, and i am shortsighted without my contacts in will stick with the wet slippers.  Hope arm (and other bruises) showing signs of improvement - new splint sounds good.  Jealous of West Acre trip - it is a lovely atmospheric garden.  I'll be taking Chicklet to York for the day on Sat - going by train, so will wave at you all as we fly by Peterborough
