If people could send some positive thoughts to Wonky and her lovely hub - it's a bit grim there at the moment - the emergency gas engineer will be with them before 10.15 tonight!!!

And the kitchen sink unit and new cupboards have not been fitted as promised

it took the plumber half the day finding out why there wasn't any water - a fault in the mains supply to the whole building must've happened last night.  What rotten luck!

Just had text from Wonky - she's on hold to British Gas - no water and no gas!!!  Not good!!!   Think it'll have to be the chippy again tonight bless them.

Maybe I should get a bit more usage out of the one I wore for Wonky's wedding?

If it rains several of you could shelter underneath it!!!

Hi Amanda, I'm from Suffolk but now we're up in Norfolk. 

We saw a beautiful hornet in Norfolk yesterday when we had lunch by the river.

Foxglove Seedlings

They look like foxglove seedlings to me. 

I'd let them grow away now, then they'll die down.  When they reappear in the spring plant them where you want them and enjoy

I've got several varieties of Clematis alpina on my tall northfacing fence and they've all been very successful - they're much more tolerant of colder shadier conditions than most clematis
