I still can't understand my OH after 37 years.  Kitty what a good job your daughter has a sensible boss.

Pdoc I've heard of pubs where everything's nailed down but not been in one (yet).

LilyP sorry I went shopping before I got your list.  Hope you don't starve.  It wasn't all food as I managed to get a pair of sandals and a necklace for our holiday. Five weeks to go yet.  It has been quite chilly here too with heavy rain every time I stick my nose out of the door.  I've been sanding down the wooden windowsills as they were such a mess with water damage.  Some idiot wasn't very careful watering her seedlings and the dog has a habit of resting her wet chin on them when she's had a drink.

Morning Dove, don't forget to save some of those scones for us.  Love gooseberry jam.

Good morning Clari, well done.  I hope you aren't feeling too sore this morning.  Get yourself checked out if you are at all worried.  Better safe than sorry.

Hi Pat.  At least you are back in the warm now. I'm sure you wouldn't want to live in a large town.

Rb, what a dreadful shock for you.  Really hope that you soon start to feel better and that you are being well looked after.  Stupid man.  Mind you I've always thought that jogging was dangerous.  Didn't think of that scenario though.

Lizzie I'm so sorry to hear about your poor horse.  Very sad so lots of ((hugs)).

Pdoc I'm sitting here making my shopping list but won't be as sharp as you down to the SM.

Morning to all who are still to arrive.  Have a good day

Hi Justin,  (Saw the PM but it will not let me reply atm). I've been out for a walk and the one tree that had any is going to be out of bounds until the new school is built.  I did get a few bits but that is all I can do for a couple of years.

I'll see if there's anything else I can enclose for the school garden.  

Ladybird if the air is so clean why are my windows so dirty?  Next job methinks

Look out for the Tooth Fairy Clari.  I'm trying to lose weight and have only been eating naked strawberries lately.  They're still lovely when warm from the sun (joke - no sun).

Bushman maybe the WHW isn't the best option for your knees this year.  Well done for doing it three times.  I'll look at the photos when you do it again.

Pat the heather burning is an emotive subject.  When it's debated well I can empathise with both sides.  It does seem to be the best way (currently) of controlling the habitat so that the birds are able to thrive and breed. 

Glad you're feeling better Lily.  You can get near to Poppet again now.

LilyP I forgot to mention the photo shoot.  Glad it went well (apart from the adults - can't trust them).  

Camera Talk

What a wonderful adventure you had Pdoc.  I've enjoyed looking at your photos and see it's true - zebras do have individual stripes as we have fingerprints.  The lionesses must do very well there as they look very well fed.

Sheps your photos are stunning.  It's obvious that many years of practice have gone into them and patience is a virtue you must have In spades.

Fairy the views, the views.  Just gorgeous..

GD the camera seems to be doing a great job.  I love the stone bridge.  Must get out and about more with mine.

Good morning, hi Pat

PP I wish I was feeling your age.

Pdoc I'm glad you had a wonderful holiday.  The pics are amazing and I'm going to have another good look later.  I've not been anywhere yet and my garden's a jungle too.  Not heard any roars though

Pat I'm sorry to hear HRH isn't too good.  I'm sure she'll be happy snoozing beside you.

Lizzie I hope you enjoy your extra enforced holiday.  You'll know all the pubs in the area soon.

OH is off to the dentist soon and I'll have to get an early lunch ready.  Catch up later.

Good afternoon all.  No idea where the morning went.  I've been carrying pots of plants around to try to find somewhere to plant them and ended up putting them all back on the patio.

Sorry to hear you've not been well Lily.  Hope you continue to improve.  Same to Yvie and Obelixx.  At least the cough is almost better.  It's exhausting  you are coughing all the time.

Loved your pics yesterday Wonky.  Lovely relaxed looking cats.

Ok what's wrong now!!??!!

Good morning all, hi Pat

Glad your not snowed in Pat.  It looks as though it's going to be another day of sun and showershere.  If I venture into the garden i will have to wear my midgy net on my head.  OH seems to have used all the Avon SSS when bowling.  Wuss

Hope you stay dry on the corbutt Fairy and enjoy a leisurely walk rather than a marathon.  Look forward to your pics.

Have a good day
