Yes, cuteness in spades, Lily.

Enjoy your visit (I'm sure you will).....at least you'll be seeing some sunshine today.

I think I covered that point several times on the other thread, DD.

IMHO, best to sow both spring & autumn, this way you will have a continuation of flowers from mid-May into the autumn.

Dordogne Damsel - Because it was getting rather bulky (almost 60 pages) the thread you posted was closed (at my request) earlier this year........this is the current one I started as a replacement.


Just to keep things tidy.

For a long time this thread as been a place for posting music related YouTube links.....hope no one minds me extending it just a tad to show this gorgeous little girl.


Like a ray of sunshine on this dull, grey, wet,  bank holiday Monday.

Not so worried then, Lily?

How much....

I agree, SV....the Megane is a great car. I would just add that I wasn't wildly keen on the design of the rear ends of a few year's ago, not sure if they're still the same.


How much....

Pleased you found the link of interest, SV......certainly the Imp has a chequered passed, along with the rest of the dying British car industry at the time. Being slightly mechanically minded, I did manage to keep mine running....just as well as with a young family to support, I was broke most of the time.

For me, the Imp's major failing was its  aluminium engine, which was prone to overheating and being of aluminium construction. The cylinder-head was prone to distortion....which involved having it skimmed.

Experiencing these Imp problems in the late sixties and the fiasco of a Morris Marina in the late seventies, disillusioned, I bought my first French car (a Renault 15, I think) and to cut a long story short, I have never bought a British car since the Marina, in fact all my cars since have been French.

I've recently bought a new Peugeot 2008 SUV crossover.   

How much....

As above, my first house cost £1,795.....financed with a 25 year mortgage = repayments of £2 .10s per month. This was an 80% mortgage (had to sell me motorbike to raise deposit) and as FG says, interest rates were around 15%.

Not sure how much I was earning at the time, but I do recall I was giving my OH £5 per week housekeeping money.

"We also bought a nice new bungalow (they don`t have bungalows in Australia)..for £4,000"

Perhaps I should start another thread...'how much did you pay for your first house?' 

Mine was £1,795 for a new, 3 bedroom semi-detached.

How much....

I would say there are few hereabouts with a few miles on the clock.
