No Dove. Freeze the excess to have in your porridge in winter, or on pavlova, or mixed with apple in pie,or easily makes jam,or coulis for ice cream.

Freezer full of raspberries, runner beans and tomato sauce (thank goodness the courgettes didn't to too well this year).  Raspberries eaten with muesli every morning, shelves groaning with jars full of jam ..........

Just thought Wonky - take one of those Berocca things I left you - full of Vit C - should help fight a cold

Bless you both Wonky!  As I've said - if there's anything I can do just shout - if your Lovely Hub thinks there's anything I can do tell him to call me - although I have dentist appt this morning - but I'm free tomorrow - however I don't want to just turn up and get in the way.  So looking forward to seeing you when you're settled - it's going to be so lovely
