Looks like schools around here closed early Clari  - when I went to W'rose around 11 this morning, the place was full of children and harassed looking parents/grandparents

There's a lot to be said for convertibles - I'd never have got my 8ft amelanchier home from the GC last May without having my top down

So it is!!!  But it appeared on my phone early this morning - must've been a glitch with the downloading of the site this morning.  

Still, better late than never - at least we haven't totally ignored Emma's query

I'll vouch for the roominess of Peugeots - Wonky's lovely hub has one, and he's also 6'7".

Too late to seed...or not?

I think part of the problem was that it was still so dry in September; scarifying here was out of the question until we'd had some rain.

Good morning Hosta 

Sorry to hear of the van's demise   another disadvantage of rural life, mud sticking to the undercarriage and encouraging 'rot' ... but your view is worth any of the snags that go with it 

I had planned to sow my broad beans this morning, but we're now on our fourth rainbow of the day and the accompanying downpours that have arrived with them - a bit wet underfoot to venture onto the veg patch so, another coffee then a quick trip to W'rose for supplies ... we're getting low on 'bathroom tissue'

If it was in the reduced section, it might be that it had been neglected in store - either under or over watered - and in these cases the effects sometimes appear after the event - with tlc it may well recover, but it might get worse before it gets better. 

Good luck.
