Pdoc, you should get Verdun to do your haggling - he enjoys it - you can pay him in donuts

We have one of these in the kitchen

 I changed the batteries today - now it seems to be selecting which bird's song to play quite randomly, as if it's on shuffle   So now we'll know it's "o'clock" but we won't know which LOL

daffodil bulbs

Pentillie - yes I saw the feature on Pentillie Duke and am so excited - when I was a child on the farm we had a patch of Narcissus pseudonarcissus on the edge of the spinney next to the veg garden, and amonst them was a clump very similar to the Pentillie Duke - the farm was sold 30+ years ago and I've been trying to find a daffodil like it for ages  -  there's even a thread on here somewhere!

Lesley, I should think we have the equivalent of 6 floor to ceiling book cases of books - we've got rid of some.  Many are art books, also critical theory, philosophy etc, poetry and plays, fiction, cookery, craft and of course, gardening  - we have three and a half floor to ceiling bookcases in the living room, some in the studio and some in the bedrooms.

I never got into Broadchurch - sounds as if it was just as well

Sadly, a lesson not learned!

You have to get rid of that rodent!  Mice have been known to eat through electrical wires - it could do serious damage to your car - expensive damage!  Have you any idea how much it costs to have the electrical loom replaced - even part of it !!!

It's a small world - my parents are from Bedfordshire and I was born there - on a farm near Flitwick which was a small village back then

Bedfordshire is certainly milder than Derbyshire in my experience at least
