HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 19/06/2014 at 06:33

Good morning all   We have sunshine here in Norfolk!!!  but clouds over to the west 

I shall be leaving here at lunchtime and heading to SIL's to stay with her and niece so I'm local to Nut and will travel to Barnsdale with her. I will have my phone with me to check in, but it's a real faff to post with it, so I probably won't be around much until Saturday PM.  OH will be here on hedgehog feeding, slug murdering and plant watering duty.

I'm usually quite phlegmatic about slugs, but my Pak Choi is taking a long while to recover 

Punkdoc - have a brilliant time at Glasto - we shall be thinking of you - looks like the weather's going to be fine for you.

Anybody coming over this way to Latitude?

HELLO FORKERS!

Definitely shut, and the one in the garage and the freezer - all tight - well, as soon as I got the tonic out of the fridge and the ice out of the freezer they were tight shut

Yes, found it - the Vapourer Moth

Strangely my caterpillar had two dark yellow spots and two bright yellow spots, but definitely a Vapourer all the same.

Fidget - he's a sensible lad, h made the right decision !!!

 Abercrombie & Fitch "models" are really shop assistants who wear A&F clothes at work and stroll around in the shop trying to persuade teenagers to buy the clothes.   They're the employees that are considered attractive, while the ones that are considered unattractive work in the fitting rooms and on the tills.  

So many of my friends' children/grandchildren get so excited that they're going to be A&F models, and find they're shop assistants and on their feet all day and working long hours too.  My step-grand-daughter is doing it in Brighton to subsidise her degree - it works quite well for students to make ends meet - but a career in modelling it aint.
