So where's my coffee Hosta - whoever's up first has to make it?

Good morning all

You see, even if I don't have to get up early, I do   Had to struggle to stay awake for Bake-Off   and had to have coffee to manage to stay awake for the last of Dr Foster - anyone else watched that?

I love tripe and stuffed heart - still make it now sometimes just for me - OH not keen.  I'm not keen on Syrup of Figs though, but we were dosed with it regularly.

The thorny bush is blackberry brambles.  That's what's growing around the edges of the yard too.  You need to treat it with SBK Brushwood Killer.  That should kill off the rest of the weeds etc that you have there too.

It'll be great to clear that lot and start with a clean sheet to make a garden for your family.  If there's any advice we can give please don't hesitate to ask

I will Hosta

Just heard from Wonky - more work has been done and I'm not needed until later in the afternoon as the plumber and electrician won't be there until later (just as well they need me for a little while as I've done some cooking for them) ... anyway I don't have to get up too early tomorrow morning. 

Does anyone know what this is please

I'll go with Abelia x grandiflora - not sure which one though, thought Francis Mason had yellower leaves?
