The whinging and amount of detail of their children's lives on the blog is concerning

Sounds like a job for Trading Standards - tomato plants sent out now will be 'unfit for purpose'. 

I'm surprised they're still solvent   I think it's a company that needs looking into ...

Hmm, hot toast buttered, water in pan simmering - now he's on a tricky bit of a painting - can I slow lunch down a bit?  Just as well I hadn't put the eggs in isn't it


Nope, not in recliner yet today Fairy - a bit overcast at the moment ... maybe later

I agree with Liriodendron about the jam keeping. 

Right, time to make lunch ...

We're back from our walk around the marshes - two more tubs full of wild blackberries We've seen so many wild flowers, dragonflies, damselflies, fish, birds, ducks etc, as well as hearing (but not seeing) woodpeckers all around us.  Such a lovely walk and so unspoilt - a few dog walkers and some cattle grazing in the distance.  Now I shall flollop with a coffee for half an hour before making poached eggs on toast for lunch.

My ex and his father used to have Oxo and bread for breakfast  

I quite like a mug of hot Oxo (only 10 calories) or Bovril on a cold day - you used to be able to get it in Purdy's coffee bar in Ipswich in the 60s- some people had it made with hot milk!

The farm shop stocks frozen croissants and Danish pastries - they're very popular with the people who run B&Bs - when OH is cleaning the freezer/refreshing the stock there's always some left that are just too close to their sell by date to put back ... staff perks

They're ready now folks!

 Help yourselves ........

What rights do I have or what can I do?

One good think however, there won't be any birds nesting in the tree at the moment, although they may use it as a night roost.  And any apples left damaged on the ground will start to soften and decay, and the blackbirds and thrushes (and night-visiting hedgehogs) will love those. 

Are there hedgehogs around your way Chris?  Do you know this website? Its full of tips and hints on how to encourage them

Morning Snoodle   the problem is always other people's cats - those you own (or who own you) are always lovely and quite bearable, whatever they do   By the way, we must organise a get together - I have some plants here for you and we're going away mid Sept - don't want to leave them to get crisp in the heatwave we've booked for that week
