Get a taxi!  There's no way I'd risk walking 5 miles on unlit rural roads in the rain (and I'm a country girl)  visibility will be poor and drivers don't expect to see walkers after dark and at that time they'll be in a hurry to get home.

I did all mine last week   ..... then succumbed to three bags of Tet a Tete for a fiver at The Range this morning

It was just the two of us last Christmas - we had grilled lobster (a whole one each) and lamb's lettuce with vinaigrette followed by a pavlova - absolute bliss!

Scale insects don't really move - they fix themselves to the plant and stay there under their 'shell', sucking the sap.  They're a bit like limpets on a rock.

Lot of good sense there Dove. I think we have said it before, but if you and I ruled the world, everything would be fine. You up for it?

Love chilli and bitter dark chocolate.

My coffee must be very strong, like my women.
