Oooh that's gorgeous Lesley - we had a very dull start to the day, but now we have blue skies and white fluffies

I'm just trying out my new knee support as I'm playing tennis later this morning - it's not the most comfortable feeling in the world, but if it stops my knee bending the wrong way ...

We hope not too Dove - have a 6am start to get to Heathrow for 9 for a meeting.
Don't really need to be de-icing the car before we face rush hour on the M25.

Thought I'd left all that stuff behind me a while ago - but every now and again it comes back to bite you on the btm

Hope Topbird's safely on her way without having had to do any scraping.  At least there's no chance of any snow around here

Plenty up in Fairy-land I expect

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Snow in Tas?  Cousins will be getting the sleds out instead of the boards

Panda - that's really great to hear - so very pleased for you ((hugs))

Good to hear from you Hosta - glad you got there ok and that you're having a lovely time - presumably you're both well-oiled  and stretched out horizontally by some water with a glass at your elbow

Fingers crossed for Wonky's Wendy's Wish (bit of a tongue twister).  I'd not seen it in flower until fairly recently, or I'd have snagged some cuttings.  I aim to get some next year - Wonky, be warned - Dove's coming to your garden in the summer with a sharp knife and a poly bag

Yes, Verdun's about

Hannah is Spanish, her ancestors probably lived in the mountains, living on scrub and cold winds!  ....

That's probably my problem too - from a long line of 'good do-ers' - put on weight walking past the cake shop
