Hello Forkers . November 2017

In case Wonky checks in I thought I'd better report that not only are my Amaryllis Papilio bulbs potted up (and made pretty with some moss from the lawn) but two puddings are steaming on the hob, and I didn't forget the silver thrupenny bits

I'm happy to paddle and swim in the Atlantic ... and the North Sea ... much prefer it to a swimming pool.  

British Gas Homecare will come on Wednesday morning and they'll do the service at the same time.  

Now to return to the pudding making ..........

Think I need to phone the British Gas people ... the boiler dripped about three tqblespoons of water onto the worktop yesterday evening .... it's never done that before   It's got it's annual service due in January, but I don't want it conking out before then!!!

Thank you, Dove. When we are next in Norwich I'll try Maplins, I know where it is, I just didn't know where to buy one. Any chance of seeing you?

See original post

 Let me know when you're coming and if I'm free I'll hop on a bus and meet you 

Jessops is another good idea   There's one in Chapelfield.

The road at the bottom of the rise is usually gritted cos it's a bus route ... But I didn't hear the gritters go past last evening and I usually notice them ... Maybe because today is Sunday and the buses don't start until later. 

BL are you coming into Norwich on this visit?  You can usually get suitable replacement chargers from Maplins on Castle Meadow.
