Tinkling, yes, olive tree although still like a shrub and in a big pot. At the moment it is sheltering in the outhouse but I wondered when it is the right time to prune it as it the branches (if you call them that on a shrub!) seem to be pretty long for the height of the tree

Can I ask two things, please?

1) How do you stay in here to watch the thread as it goes on?

2) Anyone got an olive shrub?

Yes, those were the days when you could watch the planes taking off - I remember going up to a sort of viewing platform on the roof. Or is my memory playing games?

NYS, ironing obsession not come this way.....thank you

Yup, I remember the Meridian line. We stood on the one in the street near the river and behind that famous pub. Did you do that?

Nadolig, I found the Christmas version of Downton very disappointing - it didn't seem to gel as far as I was concerned. Still if you enjoyed it that is fine by me
