well it certainly looks like her standard fuschia sat there and the white cosmos... and the address was given on her garden open sign.. so think it is.. it is beautiful.

so much care and love is put into that garden.. the back garden is just as impressive.

Have been trying to sort out sat-nav  for France and had an on-like chat with Sarah-not sure if it is sorted yet but you are not allowed a speed camera alert or risk £1000 fine-this is work in progress again-also got to get a breathalyzer kit- fine for not having that-11 euros-mixed standards???

We will now be told how misunderstood JT is now and what a nice chappy he is really

Can't see me coming to Woking but expect to see lots of pictures and Lottie waving furiously behind the camera

i heard on news that no speed camera alert ones allowed nd you must have a high visability vest in the car (not boot) for every person in the car and also 2 breathtest machines in your car at all times in France.
