Given Fidget's love of sea-life etc, can we get Hosta to do a bit of a detour and drop by here and bring a big carry-out?  

Go on Hosta - you know you want to - just look at the Rum menu!!!

Lesley, I didn't get the toaster - I bought so much meat and veg on the market that there was no way I could manage a toaster on the bus as well - I'll have to go to John Lewis it the car - they have their own car park - or I could get them to deliver it to Waitrose down the road.  We're doing the occasional slice of toast under the grill fror the time being.

Hosta give  ((hugs)) to your lovely OH from us - I think knees must have a design fault - can we send them back and get a refund from the Great Knee Designer in the Sky

Back from shopping - just going to make a sausage and bean casserole - some for our freezer and some for Wonky's - see you later ...

Just heard from Wonky - sounds as if I'm likely to be needed there tomorrow to supervise workmen as she doesn't believe it's all going to be done today and Lovely Hub has to return to work tomorrow!  Well, I did offer didn't I?

Better get my wotsit in gear today then ... things to do ... see you later folks!

Good morning all   I've had a lay-in !!!

Wonky ((hugs))  see you soon.

Pat - glad the results were good and you can stop feeling anxious and just concentrate on getting really well ((hugs))

Appropriate wishes and ((hugs)) to the rest of you - I need more coffee before I can retain information from previous pages

Clematis Wesselton

Hopefully it's only the leaves that have suffered.  I think I'd leave it and see what happens in the spring.  If it forms lots of nice healthy buds all over the plant then all is well - if the buds are only on the lower part of the plant then I'd cut back to good buds.  But that's only me going by my instinct ... I'm not an expert. 

Hopefully Richard Hodson will see this post and give more authoritative advice - he has a clematis nursery. 


Do I understand that you think that gardener's are allowed to take summer holidays?

Just had a quick phone call from Wonky as she arrived home - she said the plumber's van was still in her driveway - not sure whether that's good or bad.  She'll text me later to let me know what progress has been made.  She's definitely looking forward to Fidget's Hen Party - think she needs an excuse to get sozzled without a hangover!

Yay!!!  I'm coming and I'm bringing Wonky!!!  I'll bring home made sloe gin and raspberry vodka and I'm pretty sure Wonky will bring some of that honey brandy she was talking about - shall I bring a cake as well?  Which one would you like?
