We'll go for the later one at main station then, Panda - 20 mins more in bed too 

I shall be taking my brolly again but (again) am confident will only need it for use as a parasol 

A Senior Moment.

...Oh Nut .... 

Steve - Ice Cream was excellent thanks  - hoping to have some more on Sunday at Beth Chatto's (care to join us....?). Haven't made the crab & chilli one yet ...

Pansy - we enjoyed lots of ice cream (and cake, and beer etc etc) on our GWF outing to The Old Rectory a couple of weeks ago. And we'll be doing more of the same this Sunday  - see Beth Chatto thread in this forum if you want to join us.

A Senior Moment.

So far this week - I've spent 2 days looking for my garden hand fork (OH found it sticking out of the lawn), several hours looking for my secateurs (found under a bush), and another couple of hours looking for the same fork after I'd found it the first time (found under a pile of prunings). I wouldn't mind so much but I especially bought tools with bright pink and orange / yellow handles so I wouldn't lose them in the borders!

'Best' one was leaving a bag containing £30 pounds worth of shopping in my supermarket trolley on Saturday - fortunately it had been handed in & was waiting for me on Sunday - phew

Getting excited now .....

Panda - Which station will you be coming into (ie bus or which rail station)?

It looks as tho' Snoodle and Dove will be at BC's abt 11 - 11.15 (assuming no plant distractions on the way!) - so -  is there an arrival time between 10.30 & 11.00 you can make? 

Will PM you my phone no a bit later so we can keep in touch if necessary on the day.

 

A Senior Moment.

Hey Panda - glad you can come!

Colchester will be on my route so I can pick you up no probs. Can I suggest that I do that & Snoodle & Dove make their way from nutty Norfolk together?

Offer to collect the 2 of you from Stowmarket still stands if you prefer to do the train. You won't have to travel with legs round necks - but you can if it makes you happy 

Hope the weather holds for us - everything crossed.

Hi Dove & Snoodles - I can do either late morning or early afternoon - whichever works best for you two. If either or both of you want to get the train from Norwich I can pick you up at Stowmarket. 

Can pick you up too Panda if you want to come
