From what I can see on the photo I'd agree with Hosta

I thought Pansyface had said the new font is fine (see Nora's new thread).  

I've been flicking back and forth between Andy and Djokovic - and now the weather has gone and added to the tension.  Can't help feeling sorry for Novak - he really does look out of sorts 

The new i***ing board cover has arrived and has been fitted to the board, along with a new 'felt' pad underlay sort of a thing.  Now they've been put away while the 'adjust' to each other.  

There's no i****ing taking place here today - I had to grab the washing off the ine about an hour ago just in time to beat a deluge, and it's all been folded and put away - that'll have to do.  

Time for knitting now ............ 

Does anyone know what this is please

Himalayan balsam 

Having lived next door to it, and suffered from it's invasive nature, if I were you I'd get rid of it while you have the upper hand.

That sounds like a fantastic plan DD  - the best of luck to you and Charlie and 'more power to your elbow'.

Don't get me wrong folks -I've only had the ironing board  out twice since Christmas, and once was to iron our funeral outfits - the problem is that unlike warm winter clothes that you can get away with just folding, light cotton summer clothes need flattening if you're going to wear them in public 

This morning has gone well so far - a line full of washing, feeders full of goldfinches and tits and two batches of pastry chilling in the fridge - I'm going to make a sausage and egg pie and a quiche lorraine and possibly a smoked salmon and asparagus tart too, just as soon as I've finished this

Not sure if you deserve this or not Pdoc 

My grandfather and great uncle were at the Somme - I have my gt uncle's little pocket bible that he took with him, with his pencilled names of the villages/battlefronts - Ypres, Arras, Lens, Vimy and Mons and notes he made. They both returned home but were damaged in one way or another and died quite young, before I was born.

Apple tree problems

Hang some bird feeders in your apple trees - the tits will get used to having their lunch there
