Right, hotels for overnight stops to and from Cornwall all booked up.  Cheap and cheerful Travelodge on the way down - something a bit more comfortable (a Gt Western)  on the way back so we don't undo all the good the holiday is going to do

Sounds like a job for Trading Standards - tomato plants sent out now will be 'unfit for purpose'. 

I'm surprised they're still solvent   I think it's a company that needs looking into ...

Hmm, hot toast buttered, water in pan simmering - now he's on a tricky bit of a painting - can I slow lunch down a bit?  Just as well I hadn't put the eggs in isn't it


Nope, not in recliner yet today Fairy - a bit overcast at the moment ... maybe later

I agree with Liriodendron about the jam keeping. 

Right, time to make lunch ...

We're back from our walk around the marshes - two more tubs full of wild blackberries We've seen so many wild flowers, dragonflies, damselflies, fish, birds, ducks etc, as well as hearing (but not seeing) woodpeckers all around us.  Such a lovely walk and so unspoilt - a few dog walkers and some cattle grazing in the distance.  Now I shall flollop with a coffee for half an hour before making poached eggs on toast for lunch.

My ex and his father used to have Oxo and bread for breakfast  

I quite like a mug of hot Oxo (only 10 calories) or Bovril on a cold day - you used to be able to get it in Purdy's coffee bar in Ipswich in the 60s- some people had it made with hot milk!

The farm shop stocks frozen croissants and Danish pastries - they're very popular with the people who run B&Bs - when OH is cleaning the freezer/refreshing the stock there's always some left that are just too close to their sell by date to put back ... staff perks

They're ready now folks!

 Help yourselves ........
