Autumn Raspberries

Yet another amazing crop from Polka here - I'm beginning to wonder whether you can have too many raspberries

Good morning all/anyone

Dark and wet out and I've not been out into the garden in my pjs and slippers to check the hedgehog bowls and thermometer ........ I'll do that later.

Glad to hear you kicked British Gas into action Wonky - that's my girl!!!   Hope you both got some restful sleep and that lovely hub's plans for today go smoothly, and that you come home from work to a nicely fitted kitchen ...... don't suppose landlord has organised the new flooring yet?

Pat, that blossom looks lovely.  Hope you get good news from the doctor - fingers are crossed here ((hugs)).  I remember from my childhood listening to stories from Australia about children getting their schooling over the radio.  We lived in a very rural area of the UK and there were only 13 children in our school and we had a lot of our lessons over the radio too - we felt we had a bond with those children in the Outback.  Eventually our little school was closed and we had to be bussed to the one in the next village, but it was only a few miles - not like the distances in Australia.

Hosta - hope the MRI scan goes well and they can get you sorted out swiftly! ((hugs))

Ah, my daughter lived in Hadleigh for a while some years ago - a very pretty area.

I grew up in a tiny village near Debenham and while my children were growing up we lived in a village between Framlingham and Halesworth.  Ma lives at Southwold, brother farms near Woodbridge, daughter now lives in Ipswich and son lives near Snape.  I love Suffolk

 Here they are

Thanks Jo .........she's switched the electric blanket on and put two duvets on their bed. 

Her Lovely Hub has had to take another two days annual leave .................


Posted: 05/10/2015 at 19:15

Would you believe it!!! 

She's just had another call from British Gas ... the person who was supposed to set up the emergency engineer tonight didn't do it!!!  Wonky now has to call them after 8pm tonight to get an engineer on the doorstep first thing tomorrow morning ..............

If people could send some positive thoughts to Wonky and her lovely hub - it's a bit grim there at the moment - the emergency gas engineer will be with them before 10.15 tonight!!!

And the kitchen sink unit and new cupboards have not been fitted as promised

it took the plumber half the day finding out why there wasn't any water - a fault in the mains supply to the whole building must've happened last night.  What rotten luck!
