hi all - manic here . Hubbie decorating kitchen all contents in living room - driving me nuts. New fence getting erected tomorrow so moved a lot of pots and I'm fretting over my plants . I have a feeling a lot will be trampled on.

Advice please - when we first moved in here there was nothing built at the back of our property so we had to buy the fencing. Now our fence runs along the 2 other houses at the back of us and we will be calling round to tell them later that we are replacing 5 panels . Is it still our responsibility to pay  (which we are) but as the other 2 gardens will be getting the benefit can we expect them to chip in or what ? Hubby says it's down to us . I haven't a clue .

Kate - that's dreadful . Glad OH ok though. That happened to me about 5 years ago. I was giving way at an island and he ran into the back of me - he was traced and I also claimed through the M.I B. I had a bit of a battle with the insurance as they took my no claims off me but got that re-instated . Like you say it's the running to and fro to the garage but the main thing is he wasn't hurt.

So much for the lovely day - Dan you've sent your Cornish rain up here.

Another roasting day here - you lot in the south-east are in for the hottest day of the year (or so they say )  XF soooo predictable - the usual xxxx and then a few good acts. I'm with you Geoff - the guy from Asda was the best by far and that young girl did have a good voice but I didn't like the song much. The news is already stating that XF may have found a new Adele. As for the big kick-off with Zoe - sorry , all set up me-thinks.

Off to water while it's cool - there's not even a cloud in the sky.

Good morning to all .

There is a Prince lookalike on XF tonight I believe - that's the singer not H.M.

No menu planning for me !!!  Barbie coming out - for once the forecasters have got it right. After a very humid and grey morning the sun has now got his hat on and I'm going out to play ! Glorious weather here. ( I will be wearing long pants and long sleeves)

The X factor starts tonight - wonder what's in store for us ?

Glad you had a nice holiday , Pam.
