There was a massive bang rattling our doors just after I arrived home from the physio today - now we know what it was !

My great grandfather was a village baker, like the ones we saw last night thank goodness - life then wasn't easy but it wasn't as hard as the life being shown this evening.

My family were the Rules, mentioned in the extract of Kelly's Directory for 1900 shown here 

Wooly aphid

Hopefully your apple trees will be visited by flocks of long tailed tits this winter - they just love woolly aphids - I love watching them flying together from tree to tree feasting on them.

Soak that knuckle in warm water Wonky ((hugs)) it'll help the pyracantha prickle work up to the surface.  

You are up to date with your tetanus jabs aren't you?  If not get yourself along to the GP tout de suite and get the Practice Nurse to sort you out! 

Pork chops and fennel delicious - now I'm flolloping on the sofa (what, again? I hear you exclaim) with my knitting, in front of Victorian Bakers - my paternal Gt Grandpapa was a Victorian Baker.

I it's just the plants attempt to produce one more flower before the winter arrives. 

Help-any ideas what this plant is

It's a Chaenomales japonica Aka Japanese quince.  You can use them in cooking to replace the culinary quince.

Fidget, did you see my earlier post?  Deed Poll is easy - DIY online - you don't need solicitors.  Been there and dunnit   Got a certificate to prove it 

I'm back from the physio - she's pleased with the progress - so am I - the improvement since the Cupping procedure has been amazing.  She did more cupping and I will go to tennis next Wednesday morning and have a physio appointment immediately following that.  It 's my last NHS freebie.  

I found a nice silk scarf from East for my friend's birthday  and a bead necklace for myself    Couldn't resist it.  

Also got some lovely pork chops and fennel from the market
