Don't think Prontalgine is available under that name in the UK.  It's a brand name for Co-codamol which can be bought over the counter in low strengths only in the UK - you need a GP prescription for the stronger stuff - which is what Wonky had the other day

Pat, the media and marketing people have come up with the theory that today is the most depressing day of the year when most people are most miserable - Huh!  not in this house it ain't  ....... we're gearing up for Burn's night and haggis here, swiftly followed by the most importand day in the year ............ My Birthday!!!

Good morning all  G'day Pat and Ginger if you're around

So glad that Wonky's on the mend - at least I can understand what she's saying on the phone - there was one day that all she could do was mumble and I had to tell her to text me!    DD, hope yours is better soon .... I remember when I had a similar infection - I'd have rather gone through six labours than go through that again!

Temp down to -0.4C in the sheltered back garden last night, but above freezing now ... just

We've not got many birds visiting the feeders at the moment - I think they're missing the ash tree we felled.  It'll be better when we get some shrubs in to replace it.

.... Looked up that brasserie Dove. Sounds normal to me because it's French!

Absolutely - it seems to me to be the glamorous sister of Chartiers in Paris.  The food was superb, amazing value and faultless service

Popped out earlier and put a bit more insulation around the sides of the little greenhouse.  Although the temp in the back garden went up to + 3C, the ice on the pond and birdbath hasn't melted. 

Feet have been up and the knitting is growing

Which Lavender ?

Just remember that the French types (the ones with the 'bunny ears') are not as hardy as the English varieties

Always a good idea to improve drainage by digging in some grit before planting

Which Magnolia?

As long as your soil doesn't contain too much lime, I'd go for this one
