Night all I'm in a hotel room in Stevenage, feeling very lonely with noone to talk to, so its been lovely catching up on your days' news

Great photos Liri - really hope you find somewhere that you are happy with for Mum soon.

Will be thinking of you on Monday Panda - make the most of your last few days of freedom.  Is the cooker fitted yet?

Glad the christening went well Lizzie - sad reason for the England visit, but hope you enjoy the other bits of it.  You'll have to dodge the showers though

What are you supposed to be writing Jo?  Do we have an author in our midst??

Right - time to try out those pillows - see you in the morning folks

So glad Josh sorted you out Wonky .....most of the British Gas guys are absolute gems  Great that you now have water too

fingers crossed for the scan todayHosta -its been a long time coming,but hopefully they will now get to the root of the problem.

Off to Cambridge later with work ....might catch you later if the wi fi is any good.  Driving in this rain is not going to be a lot of fun

Morning all

glad Wonky will be waking up in her new home - sounds like you are nearly there now.  Bit of a marathon weekend, but will be worth it when you are all settled and the garden is just outside your back door

expecting the weather to change today - too dark to see what's happening out there at the moment, but can't hear the rain yet.  Hopefully it will blow itself out this week and we'll get another fine weekend.  After all, there is a Forker wedding to look forward to

best get a wiggle on .....

Which Agapanthus?

Time for planting bulb lasagne

Don't the whites just lift it to another level Fairy. Its really looking good out there.  Good to see you, and your Garden, Mrs G - its lovely, and hope you are keeping well too.

Lemon queen is such a fantastic plant Yvie - doesn't it just make you smile.  As do the butterflies Bob .....never tire of seeing them - especially the colourful ones. 

Have really enjoyed all this sunny weather - hopefully my meters are charged enough to get through a rainy week to come

Maintenance only anyone?

Have enough trouble with the one I've got Hosta .....couldn't face finding a new one

Maintenance only anyone?

If I ever get to "maintenance only" I’d have to find a new hobby ....but its not likely to happen any time soon

I'm like you Liz - always leave planting my tullip bulbs til November.  I think the other ones will be fine if they are planted then too - i have planted (forgotten) bulbs in December before now and they all came up fine - daffs, scilla and chinodoxa

I'm flolloped too Dove. Long bike ride, even wore Mr Chicky out. But very pretty North Hampshire countryside - the hedgerows are just laden with all sorts of berries.  No way am I planting any plants today - theres always next weekend.

And when it comes to bumping off Rob in the Archers .....can I join the queue please
