A lovely afternoon here too Nut - not that we've had time to be outside - busy sorting and boxing up books so that the builders can move the bookshelves and decorate in the sitting room and dining room this week - but we remarked on how lovely the ashtrees looked with the sunlight on their branches this afternoon

Curiouser and curiouser

Can you get in touch with the Peak District National Park people, or maybe the clever people at Kew and see if they have an explanation?

RB - plenty left - better grab a portion before I pack it away in the freezer.  It's a good one

KEF - hope OH is feeling better soon

I shall say goodnight now - OH wants to make popcorn!!!

Why did you put it in a container?  You killed it

There are lots of different types of worms in the soil, different colours, different sizes

You say you tried doing what I suggested but had no luck - then you go on to say tthat 'the worms are back now'.  It sounds as if what I suggested worked.  You just needed to be patient.

Leave the worms alone to do what they need to do in your soil - don't put them in containers

Oh Lizzie ((hugs)) I'm so very sorry to hear that - as you say, all you can do is make him as comfortable as possible and let him know he's loved and then make things easy for him.  Thinking of you and sending love xx

DOVE.  Sorry it was t me who asked what you were cooking, can't remember who, but I'm up for a portion if you have any spare.  Love Mousakka. 

Sorry Rb, it was Susan who asked - senior moment here!  Just as well I made enough for a platoon if not for a whole army
