Of course Papi Jo (and others)  duh!  Should've thought!    Nora's amended it for me 

BL, if you put on weight when you're here, imagine how those of us who're here all the time have to struggle 

Normal for Norfolk???

BM, go on, read the article, it'll give you a giggle - after all, you don't pay council tax in Norfolk  

Why do threads get taken down?

Ceres ((hugs)) I agree with Cottage Compost - I'm sure you posting about the programme wasn't a problem

If you're referring to the thread you started about the Aleppo Gardener programme, it was sort of 'taken over' by the people who were publicising their crowd-funding efforts.

I'm not surprised if Gardener's World and their parent company decided this was a dodgy area - there are legal implications re sending money to the Middle East at the moment.

 Now you see how the rest of us struggle when we live here all the time 

I've just posted a new thread entitled  ??? Normal for Norfolk?  Can anyone read it?  I keep getting a Runtime Error when I click on it

Fed up with this shoulder problem so I phoned GP for a non-urgent appointment ... 7.45am this Monday ... Booked 

The radio news have just announced that Princess Anne is unwell and has cancelled next week's engagements and has had tests in hospital - I'm not a monarchist - much more of a republican, but have always thought well of her - hardworking, sensible and stoic - it's not like her to cancel stuff 

Oh, just heard - it's a chest infection - that's what comes of staying at Balmoral in the summer - am I right Fairy?

Trees for privacy/what are these

Think it was this thread Fairy 

At least the poster recognises that he doesn't like the ones in the picture - that's a start.  

But he/she's not clear what sort of thing they do want - we really need to know how big the garden is, and how close to the house the boundary is - also the whereabouts of drains/pipes etc.
