Glad you had a successful day Busy. That must help a lot.
That's a kind offer Dove. Not a pheasant in sight at the SM this pm but I have a guinea fowl. Just need OH to come home now so I can try your recipe.
Cat - you need this thread - http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/seed-and-plant-swap-2016/895135.html or else start a thread with an appeal for something special you may be after if it's not on there. The purple dressing gown thing is a state of mind. Dove started it so she can explain best.
Chicky - baking cakes is really quick and easy and so delish. Only a faff if you get cerative with teh presentation and decorating which I never do. Stick to chocolate ganache, butter or cream icing or just sifted icing sugar and they'll be wolfed down.
FG - nothing wrong with a domestic gardening weekend now and then. You are so right about people going out only with mobiles. What happens when they can't get a signal? And why should people risk their lives and limbs to rescue them when they've been so stupid as to go out unprepared? They should get an invoice for time and materials at least.
