Trouble on't trains ..... Means more time to stand admiring the yellow thing in the sky, which has made a welcome appearance here too. Should have brought my factor 50 with me. Enjoy your gardens - those who are free to get out there.

Lyn - you may regret the daffs late spring, but think of the smiles they will give you early in the season.  Verd - glad you are now superfast.  Like lyn, we are end of the line, rural, etc,etc, due an upgrade about 2022 

London day today - will catch up with you all on the train later.

Thanks all for your good wishes

Just in from a lovely dinner out with Mr C - new restaurant round the corner, very nice indeed.

Snoodle ...bless

Hoping the weather cheers up soon - its making me feel a bit like KEF..  Hope tomorrow is a better day Yvie.  DD - liquidambers are luuuuuuuverrlly - its leaves should be on the turn very soon.

Glad you now have options for Mum, Verd.  Hard decision, but feel sure you'll get to what is right for her.

The sun will be shining tomorrow .....its our wedding anniversary, and it very rarely fails to make an appearance to mark the occasion.  20 years ....gosh, how did that happen.....feels like yesterday (well, maybe not that recent, but you know what I mean)
