Hello folks Lovely day in London meeting friends, lunch out and lots of nattering etc.  Train, tube and buses fine.  Got back to Norwich which was gridlocked 'cos they've decided to dig three major routes up at once   Cabs couldn't get to the station, cab drivers fuming - when I got home the meter in the cab said £15 but the cab driver would only let me pay £11 'cos that's what it would normally cost.  We have nice cab drivers in Norwich

Yvie ((hugs)) so sorry to hear about your mum - speak to PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) every hospital has one - they should support you in tackling this!  Hope your eye, someone's arm and everything else is better soon ((hugs)).

BL - hope poorly horse is better soon.

Hello David K

Hello Verdun and Hosta and Jo ......... anyone I've missed??? 

Where's Panda?  did I dream it or is she away?

... i'm of to Mallig for a week about the same time Doves of to Cornwall. No climbing just walks and seafood and perhaps the odd pint/malt whisky 

That's the sort of week we have planned - maybe some sitting quietly soaking in the scenery, maybe some drawing ........ otherwise walking, seafood and a tipple or two.

Have a good holiday when it comes - in case I'm so excited about mine to send wishes then

Laurels are tough as old boots and have survived wasps before.  I'm sure it'll be fine

Good morning all

Enjoy Aarhus Fidget - I visited Denmark years ago and loved it - son visited a couple of years ago and loved it too, said it was the most civilised place he'd ever been (and he's travelled quite a bit) but socialising was eyewateringly expensive. 

I'm off to London for the day, dressed, tickets checked and money in purse.  Now I have an hour to drink coffee before I catch the bus to the station.
