The thorny bush is blackberry brambles.  That's what's growing around the edges of the yard too.  You need to treat it with SBK Brushwood Killer.  That should kill off the rest of the weeds etc that you have there too.

It'll be great to clear that lot and start with a clean sheet to make a garden for your family.  If there's any advice we can give please don't hesitate to ask

Just heard from Wonky - more work has been done and I'm not needed until later in the afternoon as the plumber and electrician won't be there until later (just as well they need me for a little while as I've done some cooking for them) ... anyway I don't have to get up too early tomorrow morning. 

Does anyone know what this is please

I'll go with Abelia x grandiflora - not sure which one though, thought Francis Mason had yellower leaves?

Given Fidget's love of sea-life etc, can we get Hosta to do a bit of a detour and drop by here and bring a big carry-out?  

Go on Hosta - you know you want to - just look at the Rum menu!!!

Lesley, I didn't get the toaster - I bought so much meat and veg on the market that there was no way I could manage a toaster on the bus as well - I'll have to go to John Lewis it the car - they have their own car park - or I could get them to deliver it to Waitrose down the road.  We're doing the occasional slice of toast under the grill fror the time being.

Hosta give  ((hugs)) to your lovely OH from us - I think knees must have a design fault - can we send them back and get a refund from the Great Knee Designer in the Sky
