No idea what will come after them - mice, jays?  ... Pat lives in Australia too, so does Ginger ... they might know.

I pick hazel nuts when the green leafy calyx surrounding the nut is beginning to turn colour at the tips - much later than that and the squirrels have got them.  Then if you've enough not to eat them all there and then, you need to dry them in the sun.

Good morning Pdoc

The rain woke me earlier so I put the radio on for a while and went back to sleep, but now I'm awake again so I've come downstairs to chat with you ... but I'm not going to do paperwork today - did more than enough the other day and there's plenty more to do, but not at the weekend

Are your unmentionables mentionable again?   

Glad you're ok B'man. I don't think I'll get a walk tomorrow unless it's a low level one  

Around ten thousand with no leccy now. We take all that for granted here - not so funny when you're on an exposed island. I felt so sorry for the poor girl reporting from Saltcoats on tv this morning... although that's a place that could benefit from being battered by hurricane force winds.  It's a s***hole   

Unmentionables have been washed again and are draped on a rack around the radiator in the study. 

I find it hard not to expect power cuts since living here - I'm used to being out in the middle of nowhere when every storm meant several hours minimum without power. 

Runner up fee will buy the Murray baby a nice new pram - even at current ridiculous prices, I expect
