LilyP - pain is incredibly stressful and tiring - treat yourself gently.  Hope you get some relief very soon.

Hazel - we love St Ives - I first holidayed there when I was twenty and now OH and I try to go most years.  It can get a bit busy in the school hols and it's virtually impossible to drive in the town in the old part of the town because the streets are so narrow, but the light is wonderful and the ambience so relaxed. 

If you're staying elsewhere in Cornwall the best way to visit St Ives is to leave your car at the car park at Lelant Saltings just along the coast and take the scenic coastal train service around the fringe of Carbis Bay to St Ives - it works like a Park & Ride.  Fantastic and no parking problems

That looks better Hazel

Mmmm supper was yummy - inspired by last night's Masterchef we had steamed plaice fillets with a creamy mushroom sauce, creamy mashed potatoes and fine green beans. 

Chicky ((hugs))

They don't need protecting from the cold - they'll be fine as they're hardy spring-flowering bulbs which means that they grow during the winter.  They'll be perfectly happy with frost, snow and anything the winter can throw at them

Hello Hazel 8

Glad son's on the mend Runny

((hugs)) to all

Lovely tennis session today - 8 of us this time - I played 3 sets and gained some compliments from 'the more competitive couple'   Really enjoyable

The floor had been polished and was a bit slippy for my Dunlop Green Flash tennis shoes - had to revert to a pair of Hotter trainers

I seem to have fallen off the list of people receiving posts, so I'll pack up and wait for tomorrow.  Night all.

  Think all posts are  for everyone, most of the time - can't always refer to everyone by name ........ sweet dreams ((hugs))

Dove, do you both fancy a night chez Hosta on way to ,  or from , St Ives?

Are you serious?   You are both sooooooooooo kind - that would be lovely  - so much nicer than the Okehampton Travel Lodge (it has it's own charm, but ...  )

That's for both of you



Plant ID, please.

I had that happen with foxgloves a couple of years ago - a warm wet autumn and the seeds don't dry out ......
