Punkdoc, that sounds fantastic, what an opportunity.  Glad to hear your mum is improving.

Lyn and DD, when I say ironing, the basket only contains a few things that I wore on hols.  I don't do ironing either, I had to do the family ironing when I was a teenager and swore then that when I had my own family I would only buy paper clothes.  Unfortunately science hasnt embraced my idea, instead I test each potential purchase by screwing up a small section in my hand, if it creases I dont buy it.  However, I was swayed by a couple of pairs of linen mix trousers and I do have a couple of tops that have to be ironed.  I suspect that they will all remain in the basket until I'm due to travel to warmer climes. 

I did however, decide to go for the West Wing and am on my third episode.  It's going to be the last for today as it looks like the sun is peeping through.  Although if the rain returns......

Its persisting down here too.  Morning All, Achy this morning after yesterdays pumelling but not as bad as last weeks.  Feeling quite good actually.  Wanted to get into the garden to plant yesterdays purchases but its not looking promising.  It's a bad sign, before I know it I'll be browsing the web and purchasing more stuff.  Need to find something productive to do but I'll be bug****d if Ill do the ironing and not feeling like housework.  I may have to catch up on some telly if the weather doesnt improve I've just discovered West Wing and finding it a bit addictive.

I have grown one in every house I have lived in and have never lost one to bad weather.  That said I have always grown the most common ones.  They are hardier than you think.  I think I would plant it (but Im no expert).

Hubby has just cooked roast lamb with roast potatoes, parsnips and cauliflower and I can't move.  Hope I have room for chocolate later.

Yes I have, but I'm not complaining. I can't stand them.
