Verdun, I think I would have had a rant too.  I saw the bit on benefits street, where the couple had bags of food from the food bank, and he was sorting it, thats ok, I dont like that, I end up screaming at it, "but the kids might like it!!".

On a better note.... Hows the car?  Have you polished it yet?

 Punkdoc, i have PM'd you.

I hope your house is OK. Have you got enough bags?

.... and my Cyclamen coum seed, that I sowed February last year, have just germinated and sent up their first leaf.

I plan on cyclamen coum spread around a bed of double hellebores, under the Oak., with a few pulmonarias and foxgloves for later colour.

Its time to send in the army, the navy, and the TA reservists. I heard yesterday that they were opening the kings sedgemoor drain. Why the Bl***** hell wasn't it open earlier.?.....   and then the idiot Chris Smith (now Lord since labour aren't in power any more), says its all the fault of those who live on flood plains. If half of europe wasn't coming here, putting pressure on housing stock, it wouldn't have been necessary to build on green belt, flood plains and the like.

We have had drizzle, stair rods, sleet and snow this morning, I'm glad I dug up the plants for the odd sockers yesterday.
