Hi Victoria - they're tough as old boots - they can be covered with a couple of feet of snow and come through unscathed.  Don't worry about them - just look forward to enjoying them. 

You've done absolutely nothing wrong

Lola (the car) has big fog lights and a big hooter!  If the worst comes to the worst, OH can walk in front in a Hi Vis jacket swinging a lantern and waving a red flag   We'll be taking it easy as we're going to stop off at a pub on the way for Sunday lunch

Thanks Fg - kind of you   Something must have happened at 5am - I woke then too!

No tea thanks, not really a tea drinker - I'll make more coffee

Good morning all   Soggy and misty here - we're off to MIL's today for a few days so will be AWOL.  If we get a dry day I'd be grateful if someone  could mow the lawns while we're gone -

I would always choose to drill into the mortar rather than the brick.  The mortar isn't as hard so is easier to drill into, but more important, it's easier to repair if something goes wong.

Not much done in the garden today - it was wet and miserable - I've been wanting to dig out and enlarge the Little Wilderness but my wrist is still a bit dodgy and I've got a long drive tomorrow so I just wandered around a bit and looked at things.  The broad beans are up and looking good

I've spent a lot of time surfing the net and looking at holiday cottages for next Sept.

David   my involvement with performing arts/film/tv in the past probably makes me less concerned than some with 'time travel' as practised on tv.  I expect tv entertainment programmes to have an element of 'staging'.

..... Enjoy the dancing.....and footie if you watch it.

As a lifelong follower of Ipswich Town, that's not as easy as it once was

I don't see it as pretence   it's a show recorded on Saturday and screened on Sunday.  Gardener's World is presumably filmed sometime in the week before it's screened on the Friday evening - very few programmes are actually live.
