Hello Pamela and welcome
Crocus will have some Golden Hop available in the summer - you can ask them to email you when it's available http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/humulus-lupulus-aureus/classid.1664o/
My guess is that the Gooseberry saw fly has got to your gooseberry bushes and stripped the leaves https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=517

Are you paying a price for having an even milder winter than usual in Cornwall?
Obelixx - Darjeeling is the only tea that Wonky and I drink - when she was in her teens/twenties she carried Darjeeling tea bags with her in her bag or pockets wherever she went - they sometimes caused confusion on the occasions when she was searched going into nightclubs/festivals
Well, perhaps that's what you need

Chicky - have you been partaking of something alcofrolic?
Oooh no! Can't do tea in a flask. Black coffee yes - tea never.
Bright sunshine now but very wet underfoot and with clouds banking up in the west again.
