Runny - get well soon ((hugs)) 

Quite a few years ago I had a brand new car - only a few weeks old when it was rear-ended  - when the insurance company asked what I was doing at the time of the accident I quite truthfully told them I was having a cup of tea ............ my car was parked on the side of the road outside my friend's house and I was indoors on the sofa.  

When the driver of the car who hit my car was asked by the police why he didn't see my car he said, 

"I'd turned round to talk to my children on the back seat."

When they asked him why he didn't stop at the scene of the accident he said it was because his ex-wife would be cross if he was late getting the children back.

Thankfully the children fishing in the village pond saw everything and took his car number and came and found me.  It didn't take the police long to track him down.

Courgettes and shade

Our veg patch used to be shaded to the south east by a tree. Courgettes really struggled. They need as much light as you can give them in the UK where the intensity of light is low anyway compared with some places.

If I find myself having another lay in tomorrow morning someone else can start July's 'Hello Forkers' ... as long as they put a link to it at the end of this one, and a link to this one at the beginning of the new one, all will be well 

Independence Day?

Well ... I think they sort of trusted each other  .................... until Sarah Vine pointed out to her husband what had been patently obvious to most of us for ages ... Boris is a liar - he's been sacked at least twice for lying . ... he just can't help it ... he's been promising the same jobs to different people to get them to back him ................... pants on fire ..........

He's been shafted by Gove, who has done what his wife told him to do.

No one will ever trust Boris or Gove again.
