Enjoy Houghton BL - haven't been there since we went with a dear friend to see this fabulous exhibition  .  Sadly it was the last time we saw dear Carol - very soon afterwards she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour and passed away shortly after that    Count your blessings folks ... 

Hosta ... I know what  'spare hostas' are ... even you have some ... sometimes ... they're the ones you give to us and to Wonky

Hurrah!  Bushman's found us ((hugs)) but you're looking in the wrong place if you're looking for normality

Oh Bushman ((hugs))  we've moved to the September thread - hope you find us - probably won't find any normality there tho' 

Things I don't get

Not really BBQ - but molasses and brown sugar (I use muscovado), mustard, cloves and salt pork or bacon with beans and onions, cooked in the slow cooker all day - perfect to come in to after a late autumn day in the garden.  I sometimes tip a can of chopped tomatoes in as well, and a slosh of Worcestershire sauce.  A jacket potato or two cooked in the bonfire and you have bliss on a plate.

You'll find it on the blanket chest in the front bedroom - it's the pale blue chambray one - thanks ... very good of you ... I'll make the coffee .................
