Well done Panda - £100 for a cake sale - that's good going!

Back from a stomp across the marshes with OH - warm and sunny - lots of robins singing away in the gorse bushes  on the edge of the marshes - several nice dogs with their owners. Couldln't go too far as it was quite boggy off the main tracks but I suppose that's in the nature of marshes    I spotted lots of places where I can snaffle some greenery for Christmas decorations without actually 'stealing'.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Oh!  Fidget - that's awful!!!  Think that Complaints Procedure has to be activated - a chronology of events is the best way to start.

I was taken to the ballet (Swan Lake) for the first time when I was about 8 years old - wonderful village schoolmistress filled her Morris Minor with children and took us to Ipswich about 12 miles away - we'd learned about the storyline before we went - I was transfixed - loved it!!!

Chuckling here! 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Just had a wander around the garden in crocs and dressing gown - more jobs identified - winter prune the goosegogs and more wires needed for the espalier pear.

I shall have to make a list .... on a piece of paper rather than in my head

MrsG - I think Verdun's garden has 'layered extensions' like the Three Dimensional Chess that Spock and Captain Kirk play

I always wanted one, now I've got one, I can see it from the sofa, it's covered in blooms and I'm chuffed to bits with it

And when I was a child one of my favourite books was about a pony called Freckles

Panda   Label them as 'DIY'  icing.  Like M&S used to sell Christmas cakes  with the marzipan but no icing so people could 'customise' them.  You could probably charge more for them that way

We're still getting worker bumble bees in the garden - I was watching one busily visiting the flowers on the Clematis cirrhosa Freckles just two days ago
