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.

  Now I really wish I had gone, never mind the beautiful flowers . I should have warned you about the so-called lemon drizzle cake. The NT doesn't have a clue on how to make it at any of it's properties. You have to come to Woodgreen to taste the best ever.

 Sorry, pic and names together in one post ....

Bumping this back up to the top because this photograph is awesome!!

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.
