Oh Fidget - sorry to hear he's sore, but not surprised.  Hope it heals quickly and that physio, if needed, is as good as the treatment  I had. 

I'm sure my OH would feel that trifle is medicinal - hopefully yours does too

Those look like prunus leaves to me - possibly a flowering cherry.

Oh, just spotted Nut's post - it may be simpler to try that in the short term at least - Cheers Nut

That's what I thought you'd say  (my ex was a builder)  - oh well ... there's a job for the next fine weekend.

I noticed today that the end brick on the top of the wall by our driveway has come loose. 

Any suggestions for a quick and simple solution please?

At one time we had a house full of 19 year old girls next door - lovely lasses who occasionally popped round for a cup of sugar or advice about a recipe.  

One morning one of them hammered on our door - she was wearing just her jimjams  - she had the front room downstairs as her bedroom, and apparently the spindle of the door knob between her door and the rest of the house had broken and the other girls were locked in (they'd lost their key to the back alleyway leading from the back door)  

OH went round with screwdrivers etc and after a bit of DIY he managed to liberate four girls who were locked upstairs (the house had a downstairs bathroom!!!).  They were all very grateful ... just as well I was chaperoning 

Life in student land was never dull - there were the two grown up PhD students who were both petrified of spiders and ran down the street in their dressing gowns and hammered on our door for my OH to go and capture a spider that was in one of the bedrooms.  I went with him (well, they were in their dressing gowns and a man on his own can be vulnerable to allegations)  

I watched OH search for what seemed like hours - in the end he pretended that he'd caught it in a plastic cup and liberated it in the garden.  They were very relieved and we went home and opened a bottle of wine!  

Several days later they were banging on our door again - you wouldn't believe it, but there was another big spider in the same room ............. fortunately this time it had stayed put and OH was able to catch and remove it.  

Your worst Christmas present!

Isn't it a beauty   I've just been browsing her website - her amaryllis bulbs are expensive but there are some real treasures. 

ID please

 Thought so, definitely an amaryllis and very similar indeed to 'Green Magic'.
