Lizzie - what a dreadful day.  Hope they both pull through - what difficult times for their family and friends.

Lily - hope this is the first step on the road to better times for your friend and her daughter.

Monty don new series

Just finished watching them all - thought it was a really great series.  Only one I didn't like was the model village episode - but all the others turned out really well - and all down to the hard graft of the owners ....that was the really inspirational thing for me.  If you get out there, work hard, and take on as much advice as you can get, anything is possible

Hope to see Lyn back very soon

Topbird - sounds like we live in very similar places - idyllic most of the time, but the first to lose services.  We got so fed up with power cuts everytime the wind blew that we invested in our own generator.

Morning all - late start here - day off, as have a funeral to go to.

Lily - the NT place is Waggoners Wells - one of the first National Trust sites ever acquired.  Its a lovely spot.  We normally link it in with a trot round Ludshott Common which is next door, but had uncle with us yesterday, so kept the walk short and on the flat.

Fingers crossed the camera repair works Fidget - thats expensive kit
