Well done Chicky

I wouldn't rely too much on Old Speckled Hen for carb content - OH can put away prodigious amounts, and he's built like a particularly skinny whippet

Where's your carbs???

Hosta!!!  If you don't eat properly there'll be no more


That's the way to handle him Fg

I've coped on my own - OH was at Chelsea for a year doing his Masters and I was living and working here (in a rather scuzzy street - I've never dialled 999 so many times in my life!!!) 

Every six weeks we'd meet up for a weekend - either he'd get the train back here or I'd get the National Express to London.  As I said, I coped ........ but it wasn't very nice.  It was then I got into the habit of having Radio 4/World Service on all night. 

Being with OH is bdooly amazing   but I'd rather be on my own than with the wrong person.  That's not good at all

It's virtually compulsory viewing Hosta - and if you need an excuse you can say you're watching it on my behalf - I'm a girl, I ought to watch that sort of thing, but I have the wrong shaped feet to wear things like that so they're no more than 'sculpture' to me and I need an early night anyway

And as for our trip to Cornwall, now you're in the know   I'll expect you to start crocheting lots of bunting to decorate the road to the west country for us

GWRS - it's just a day trip, meeting up with some friends

Bizzie - lovely seeing your horses

Island beds - are they a bit twee or retro?

Oh, I thought you were nearer - Bressingham is on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and halfway between Wonky and here

Hurrah!!!  The car is fixed - it was the 'coil spring' and it's been replaced and for a very reasonable charge.  They've checked the car over for me as we're driving down to Cornwall in a couple of weeks and they can't find anything to worry about

I'll pick it up on Thursday morning 'cos I've got a day out in London tomorrow

DD ((hugs))  a lovely lad like Charlie doesn't need the sort of rellies who would ignore his birthday 'cos of a spat with his mum - he'll grow up into a lovely young man without them

Verdun - that path is going to be beautiful

Rb ((hugs))

No, the cross pollination would have happened in the previous generation. Nothing you've done

Dying Beech Tree

I think you should take advice from a professional arboriculturist.  That's a big tree and it could do damage if it fell.
