Oh 'eck   I can get there by going via the menu, but it's a very long drawn out process .................. 

I've alerted Nora - let's hope she can come up with something ....

He did Thought for the Day for years on R4 - a wise and humane man who always found the positive - we need people like him so much now.

Good morning all  

On the way home yesterday we gathered greenery and today I shall make a wreath and a table decoration and give the parquet a going over with the polisher.

Just give the leaves and stems a tug. If they're ready to come away you won't have to pull hard. 

But I wouldn't plant into open ground now. It'll be cold and wet. I'd wait until you see signs of growth in the spring, then you'll be sure you're planting living bulbs - just in case some tender ones have died over the winter.

Oh it's gorgeous - and well named. That's a good strong colour for Carol - a feminine shade, but nothing girlie about that pink

We're back; we've had a lovely day - the sea was flat calm, not a ripple. There was a mist that hid the horizon and the quality of light was beautiful.

We had drinks in the theatre bar on the pier and watched the little groups of turnstones running about busily - just love their bright orange legs. Then we went to Galton Blakiston's No 1 for lunch. OH had tempura whitebait with wasabi mayo and I had cockle popcorn. Then he had cod in batter and minted mushy peas, i had battered hake and we shared a portion of very light and fluffy chip shop style chips.

After that a lazy walk along the prom, a couple of pints in the Kings Head, and a visit to the proper sweet shop for a big wedge of cherry and almond nougat, a box of rose Turkish Delight and a block of creamy fudge to keep us sweet over Christmas. 

I've spoken to Wonky ... they've all been working inside today, rubbing down and treating garden furniture, so not as strenuous as last week's work, so she's been able to cope ok.  Apparently while she was poorly her colleagues were cutting back some berried variegated holly, so saved a big bag full for her.
