Oh sorry Sue, senile moment! Of course, I've read your blog, must have forgotten that bit! How is Phoebe enjoying her trip? Bet you get some looks when that tiny dog comes out of the bus! Keep enjoying, looking forward to reading more of your blog in a week or two.

Glad you're enjoying your travels, Sue! Meant to ask before, do you need an HGV license to drive Thebus?

Morning Brumbull

You wouldn't be in the doggybox again by any chance, would you?

Don't know what I'm doing up at this ungodly hour on a Sunday morning, shall have my coffee and go back to bed, I think. Can't even tell what the weather is doing, still black outside. I hate mornings!

Have a dry day and greetings to Albert.

Hey Brumbull, good to "see" you again. Just watching Breakfast, horrific scenes! Weather is going nuts! Hope it improves before you go westward again.

Have a good day!

Definitely a campanula, but mine flower all summer if I trim them after flowering.

Hallo Sue, how lovely to hear from you again! So glad I ticked "Email me when a response is made", otherwise I might have missed you. Have just read the whole interesting and witty blog and am astounded at your energy and resourcefulness, you sound like a person "after me own heart"! We too sold up everything and went sailing for 4 years 30 years ago, but were much younger then.

I have bookmarked it and will look in regularly to keep up with your adventures.

Take great care and enjoy every moment of your travels

Hugs to you and Phoebe


Did you know?

Thanks for the tips, Mike, very interesting. I stuck 2 rose cuttings into my raised bed last year and am thrilled to find they are sprouting buds. Silly me forgot to label them though, so won't know which roses they were until they flower!
