Morning to Dove too - you snuck in whilst I was typing.....and retyping ..... first attempt wafted into the ether somewhere

Morning MrsG.  Your son has a great Mum behind him.  You are right that you should not have to become a self taught lawyer/medic/teacher .... Hope you navigate the new ways - and it ends up being a better system.  

Hope Mr KEF's back is better this morning - back pain is horrible

Lizzie - so sad.  The poor old thing was shown kindness in her last days - .that counts for lots.

work today, then my uncle arrives this evening for a weekend stay.  He is an enthusiastic 80 something gardener, so a trip to Wisley is definitely on the cards

Hiya Stacey - great to see you posting, and so pleased you are making progress.  Bless your LO's cotton sox - a real gardener in the making.  Many ((hugs)) on their way.

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Bekkie .....just snuck in there before the clock strikes twelve

Glad you enjoyed your quiz Lizzie  And great to hear everything is starting so well for OL and Mr OL (hopefully your isolation from the news has shielded you from the footie results too).

it is so dark here in the mornings now - but clocks back this weekend, so we'll get some light back for a few more weeks.  Shame we have to lose it in the evening to compensate.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Matty - thinking of you and sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. ((Hugs))

Lily - certainly a roller coaster for your friend - hope things settle happily for her soon.

OL - we are sharing your smiles too.

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Toast is brilliant - the toblerone description made me laugh til I cried

Time Travellers Wife - started reading it being slightly irritated by such a ridiculous concept - ended it by blubbing on a train because they all seemed so real, and it was all so tragic.

i think the common theme is my propensity to weep

LPilly - you could buy them, but think they are now all sold - which means £millions raised for forces charities.  Here is another pic - sun not out this time, but more of an impression of how many there are


Monty don new series

Have seen both programmes so far, and am LOVING it .  So inspiring to see people doing things themselves (don't like the makeover programmes when an army of strangers come in and take over) - and great to see Monty rolling his sleeves up .... he comes across as such a genuine guy - not "star" like at all.

And loved both of tonights outcomes .....roses and wildlife ponds .....priceless (well ££££'s actually, but you know what I mean).
