Clari - if I was you I'd give your boss an ultimatum. Pay today by fast bank transfer or in cash - no more work until you have the money. But you have to stick to it and mean it...

Sorry to hear Doc & Flowers are feeling so rough. There seems to be a really nasty heavy cold / nearly flu / bad cough doing the rounds this year & I'm pretty sure it's what OH & I had last summer. Seemed to last for ever. OH picks up all sorts of bugs from people coming back from far flung places & sharing their germs on planes.

Mighty atom is a lovely snowdrop Dove - was that one of your b'day ones from last year?

I'm playing the waiting game today - my order of 21 plants was despatched yesterday so might arrive today. Schoolgirl error to order on a Wed - if they don't turn up today there's a strong chance they'll be sat in a sorting room over the weekend.

Have a good Friday

How kind of you to remember Nut

Yes please - I have a large new woodland area to populate and they will be perfect for there.

B*st*rd !

Saw a report that the actor who plays Rob in the series (Timothy Watson) has been booed and hissed at public meetings / events and has stopped looking at all Social Media because of the venom out there.

It must be very difficult to handle when the public stop being able to distinguish between real life and fiction and start to attack the portrayer of this nasty character

18th is slightly better for me than the 25th  (and I'd rather meet sprogs in batches of 1 or 2 with (grand)parents than in herds of school parties....  ). 

Maggie - I live just over a mile from you (how nice to know there is another forum member so close) - so it would be daft for me not to offer you a lift - probably have to go via Stowmarket to collect a Panda from the station but it would be lovely to have some company for the whole journey.  Will exchange full addresses / phone numbers when we can do so out of the public eye

Hmm.... looking at the rain - it may be a few days before the garden is dry enough for working

Fine for me - Panda is the one most likely to have date conflicts.

As ever, I am 3 weeks behind on the storyline, but this has just been the most horrible story of one person's control over another and erosion of self esteem and self confidence.
The main reason it's been so horrible, however, is because it has been portrayed in the programme in such a wholly believable & realistic way. Stealthy, insidious manipulation.
What a great idea to seize the opportunity to fund raise for Refuge.

Whatever works with the trains / work diaries etc should be fine for me...
