Morning all you lovely people. 

Foggy as Lesley says but hopefully will burn away as I'm off to Callander to do Ben Ledi soon.

Panda - it's ok - you've been a bit busy this week!  Glad it's all going well for you 

Sounding promising Liri. Hope this works out for mum now 

Dove - I loved that cartoon yesterday - been there! Depressing that there's no sense of urgency with the landlord though. Not good enough   WW will collapse in a  heap soon!

Glad you had a slightly cooler day Pat. It's very debilitating, and worse when you've not been 100% recently.

Off for a quick glance before I head off.

Have a smashing day -  whatever you get up to  

Big dead tree

I've noticed all the ash trees up here have turned beautifully Dove. Very uniform. I passed a lovely row of them today - all greeny golden

Liked his (Griff's) garden too, although I was only half paying attention. Will watch it  properly on Sunday, or tomorrow night. 

For anyone who's peckish - there's a few of the 'fairy' cakes left from my birthday

 They were very tasty. Just as well I'm walking again tomorrow - I've eaten rather a  lot of cake this  week

If you record the programme, the names are on screen when  they're discussed. The subtitles are helpful too,  if you put those on.

That would have been brilliant fidget!

Would you have done the actions too? 

Relocating my plants

As big a rootball as possible is the key. You may lose some things, but the ones which survive and grow on will bring you even more pleasure under the circumstances. 

If you lose some plants which you particularly liked, there's the Seed and Plant Swap thread on the forum  - so you might be able to get some new bits and pieces for next to nothing

Jo - your climate and conditions are pretty similar to mine. I'd leave cutting them back till spring, but you can be quite sore on them at that time. They'll sprout away very quickly. I've hacked them back to about 6 inches, or a foot if I'm feeling benevolent

Thanks RB. It's terrific how much support I've had - can't thank everyone enough 

Missed the little fella on my jaunt this afternoon

Evening all. Trying to have a quick catch up before I go and collect oldest fairylet from work.

DD- you're probably 'not here' just now but hope all is well and hubby will be improving every day now. Been there and know what it's like, so will be thinking of you if you don't manage to pop in here. Look after yourself and Charlie too - that's important 

Does that mean I have to change my name too? I used my real name...

Dove - don't worry -  I almost PMd you to say it hadn't arrived because you'd said you'd posted it, but I know what the post is like! 

Got yours today lily - and thank you for the card too  Thanks to all who sent little cards with kind messages. You lot are just tremendous  

I went a walk today after work - the weather was so fantastic. Up at the Rest and Be Thankful. Had tremendous views. It's a  Corbet next to one I did a few weeks ago when the weather was poor, so it made up for it today. 

...and now I'm back - rested and thankful!
