Hi each, saw loads of snowdrops yesterday  PLUS a butterfly ( tortoiseshell I think), a bumble bee and honey bees...2 helpings of cake, lemon frizz and American apple cake... 

After last year's great summer and this mild winter hopefully we will see lots of birds and bees etc this year.

Shopping trip to Bournemouth more or less waste of time...goods sold online in a particular store not available in the store itself...   off to Southampton, finally found what I wanted. Went into record store to buy latest Gregory Porter ( anyone else a fan?), and came out with 7 CDs . Main road out of Soton now has broken manhole in middle of 3 lanes, so just about missed that. Loads of standing water but wind probably not as bad as feared. As I said earlier we have just about turned the corner Now going to cook Monkfish and Scallop pie for tea.

Good Morning everyone. I don't know why but I have a feeling in my water that we have turned the corner. Clearly still grief for many , and my thoughts are with them, but the worst is behind us. 

Lots of lessons will have been learned for next time,new investment in flood control measures will flow, and communities will be stronger.

All we need now is a chance to start some serious gardening.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
