  I'm in East Anglia and I'm not moaning really (sorry) ... it's warm so things are growing, and we're getting a bit more rain than usual so I'm not having to use the hose as the waterbutts are continually being topped up ... we've got more slugs than usual   but the nematodes are arriving today ......... 


And I got loads of washing dry yesterday

Looks like you're another victim of the dreaded 'Auto-correct' Aym   -  scraping off some of the Cambrian Layer would be a bit excessive and not very helpful 


What I'm sure Aym tried to say is the 'cambium layer' - the layer between the 'bark' and the 'wood'.

Have given up now Pansy  ... drinking coffee and finding jobs to do ... I've got the dentist this afternoon so that's a few hours 'wasted' so I might as well get ahead now ..........

Morning folks  
No, my bodyclock hasn't woken me up - the phone did   it was the automated alarm system at the farm shop where OH works - he's a key holder - I couldn't let him cycle up there on his own to see what had triggered the alarm so I pulled some clothes on and we drove up there ... no sign of any intruders or anything ................. but of course we're both WIDE AWAKE now ...


there was a beautiful sunrise tho'
