Good morning all   ((hugs)) for those who had a rotten night - I hate that .  Treat yourselves gently this morning folks - but don't forget the Yorkies (puddings, not bars )

I've been out and had my stomp and now the sun's shining on the willows on the hill and they look beautiful

Hello folks   I'm back from my travels down south   Had a lovely lunch with delightful daughter in law (henceforth DDIL) and talked lots about our Russian trip - possibly changing plans slightly - might go in September and see all the fruits and veggies ripening in the gardens - depends on DDIL's work commitments.

Verdun - what about going for a cabriolet?
