Looks like a plan!!!    Too early to make arrangements yet, but what sort of time of year should we aim for - those beds look as if they'll be good in the late summer ...

Just make things clear that he can only plan things for 'his time'  - you may well have planned things for your time, and next time you will not change your plans to fit in with him, unless something has happened over which he has no control.


Smile nicely but start as you mean to go on.  ((hugs))

Lots and lots of ((hugs)) DD ... as you said, forewarned is forearmed.  


Also, keep a diary (times, dates, arrangements kept and broken)  -  it may be handy in the future.  It's a shame, but best be prepared - these things sometimes get worse before they get better.

Loved seeing those huge new borders at Kew.  I remember walking along that long broad walk years ago, me pushing Wonky in a pushchair and with a 5 year old holding Daddy's hand, wishing there was something other than trees and grass to talk to the children about - we're from a very rural area where they saw a lot of trees and grass.  


Then a few weeks ago OH was in London and met up with a friend of a friend who said that his girlfriend was working on these fantastic new beds at Kew, and told OH lots about them.  He came back and told me and I've been impatient to see them ... I think we need to organise a Forkers Visit to Kew next summer ... anyone else up for it?

P'doc   I once got rid of cold callers at the door by clutching my stomach and mumbling "I've got Noro-virus"  it was absolutely true, and got rid of the earnest religious lads very quickly.  


  I might try it again
