Clari. Get them on to BACS. Tell them you can't come in as you have no petrol and no money to buy any.

My snowdrops are flowering now, and the daffs have started. If it stays warm, the daffs will be over by the time we get back. Dove and Wonky... did your bulbs come up that I sent you? The cyclamen coum that nut sent me are flowering well in a pot outside.

What/Where have all my snowdrops gone?

I always transplant my snowdrop bulbs when they have died down for the summer. As long as they go back in straight away, there is no problem. They don't like being dried out. Is your soil very dry and sandy?

Dive gear packed. Camera gear packed. Just need to pack clothes and lock up the dandelions. Of course I've come down with a cold. It must have been the traipsing around shops looking for sandals for hubby. I told him to buy them last summer. Of course ,are there any in the shops??? No. They're not in yet.

See you later folks, I'm off to buy sudafed.

Lamp chops were legs of something, grilled all afternoon over charcoal, and chopped up with a cleaver, wallop, wallop, and served on a plate with cucumber and tomatoes. A big bunch of grapes for pudding.

I think the "lamp chops" served up on a certain greek island were goat. Delicious.
