All the best for tomorrow Stacey 

I am in the middle of near communication black-out and it is a strange feeling.

I have a new phone that cannot be used till company has changed no. Cannot change no as company's computers are down and have been all day. Old phone is a top up and is running out of money. OH's phone has decided not to work and land line phone will only take recorded messages, we cannot use it as a 'phone' All happened to day. AARRGGHH!!


Remembrance Sunday

 This is the Thiepval Memorial in N. France. It remembers those who never returned from the Battle of the Somme in 1916 and who have no known grave, Amongst the tens of thousands of names is that of my Great Uncle, aged 21

We are the only members of the family to have been in a position to visit it, but this is not my picture.

Morning all

I have been asked those questions as well Dove. Seems everytime there is an incident they have to double check in case minds are changed!

Lovely bonfire do last night. Really enjoyed myself. Good company, spectacular fireworks and a bonfire that behaved itself.

Lovely fine clear day today here, and putting washing out, but it proably won't dry it will still 'freshen'

May get into garden later - acorns grrrrrr!

I like Phyllis Bide which is classed as a rambler but is very small - not pink though but delicate - still in flower
