Hi all.

Lovely day here, but only just woken up. Apparently I was kicked out of bed last night, as I kept shouting about bombs, feel fine now.

Another day of dahlia and canna lifting, it is just so nice to be outside, with all the green and a robin following me, where ever I go.

have a good day.

Overwintering calla lillies

I grow them in pots and just move the pots into the cold greenhouse and allow the to dry out.

The highly coloured varieties are not reliably hardy.

Hi all.

Lovely to be outside in the Autumn sunshine.

Lots of bulbs planted, and started lifting the Dahlias and Cannas.

I really miss my soft top, drove them for 30 odd years. Always hoped they would help me "pull", they didn't.

Big shout out for Gary Linneker, if you have seen his tweets on the Callais migrants.

Off for a sleep.

Hi all.

Very quiet night, a bit disconcerting actually!!

Lovely weather here, so bulb planting and starting to dig up Cannas and Dahlias.

Don't normally eat breakfast, but toast and jam has gone down rather well.

Have a good day everyone.

Never has a shepherds pie tasted so good.

A nice b&b pud for afters would be good.

Home again.

Lovely train journey [ yes really ], green fields and trees.

OH met me off the train at Chesterfield and although she had been against the trip, was happy to see me.

Shepherds pie and a bottle of red for tea, no booze and not much food recently.

Thanks for your lovely comments, but my actions may not have been completely altruistic. I hope I don't offend anyone, when I say that I always loved the drama of major trauma, even though I knew for a long time that it was damaging to my own health. I needed another "fix"

Plan to sleep and garden as much as possible for the foreseeable future.

Morning all.

Just waiting to go into a meeting with the MSF hierarchy and someone from the Foreign Office, and then I shall be on my way home.

It was nice to get some sleep last night, something I can't normally do in London, but it was a bit quieter than Azaz.

Hi all.

Not read back so hope you are all well.

As I am sure you have realised, I have not been in Scotland, for all this time, in fact I have not been in Scotland at all!

I have been in a place called Aziz, working for MSF, for the last 6 weeks. I hope you can appreciate why I was not able to tell you.

Needless to say it was terrifying and distressing beyond my comprehension, now have to hope OH will forgive me, when I have had my de-brief and finally get home.

Should leave London tomorrow and then I probably need to sleep for a few days, very little was had out there.

I am sure you must think I am stupid beyond belief and no they did not know about my mental illness, but it was something I just had to do.

Hope to catch up with you all soon and most of all hope you are all well.
