G,day ,Pat. I remember aussie flies well. I have two of those mesh nets that cover all of the head over a hat. They drove me mad at the Pinnacles on a trip in WA. Next trip I forgot it and bought another one. They now live in my suitcase so that I don't forget them. They're not flattering but they are effective. I also buy plenty of insect repellant in Oz. It seems to be more effective than the Deet based Jungle formula that we get here. I'm not sure that smuggling something akin to nerve gas into Britain is allowed.

Well its true that he offered to buy me a car he liked last week, but I declined. He has also asked if its OK to buy pans for xmas now we're wed. I have told him exactly where that will get him. We had a minimoon in Cornwall. Proper honeymoon to come later.

I am expecting a new arrival. New hubby is working on it. It's not the patter of tiny feet!!!, more the flutter of little wings.

Wishes can come true.

I have a bag full in the freezer. I throw a handful in the porridge in the morning. Little flavour bombs of goodness.

I hope she remembered to feed the worms, Edd.

Hello, Pat. 

I potted up the bulbs that I shouldn't have bought. Then I found a load I dug up when I put the summer plants in. I ended up spreading a load of snowdrop bulbs in a seed tray and covered them over. They already had roots growing. Ho hum. Thats the pots done, just a bag of alliums and another  bag of tulips to shove in somewhere when it stops raining,  plus a dozen or so foxgloves.
