Think we'll head for Cromer - plenty of cafes and places to dawdle in during the showers - it's raining at the moment.

I'm quite used to going to the seaside in the rain - growing up on a farm we had to make the most of good summer weather for harvesting so trips to the seaside usually happened in bad weather - I've an eternal image of Ma in raincoat and headscarf marching along Southwold seafront with corgi on lead singing Ye Fishermen of England into the teeth of a gale!

Well done Lily! I've lost a few pounds too! So the ice cream is going on Verdun's hips

Anyone good with tricky seeds

I've been finding little Verbena bon. seedlings in the veg patch - presumably from the garden compost where I composted the 'prunings' from the border. I pot them up and give them a bit of tlc.

I bet if I tried to grow them from seed they'd be much less co-operative
