Morning all, early on parade for me today.  Overdid the gardening yesterday so painkillers for breakast.  Cleared a corner of the garden that had become a bit overgrown with ivy, holly and potato vine and have a nice new space for plants.  Might start a thread asking for suggestions as it's not the easiest of sites to plant up.

Hope everyone enjoys their Saturday whatever you are doing.  I'll be going on the hunt for a new laptop as this one is becoming too temperamental and slow.

Afternoon all. Babysitting Mabel today and baki crumble. Pansy I would tell them you had something contagious. Don't stand any nonsense. After all what's the worst that can happen, them refusing to speak to you again?  Brucey Bonus.

Afternoon all. Babysitting Mabel today. Just helped her make 2 crumbles.  One apple and blackberry and the other rhubarb. You can imagine the mess a 4 year old can make. Sorry to hear about everyone's troubles. 

Hope you keep it together Chicky. 

Hate having building work done. You have my sympathy Nanny B

Missed you there Hazel.  Had a wonderful day at Kew is was great meeting everyone and the weather was glorious.

No food anywhere, we've had all the furniture out and vacuumed through.  I just can't understand it.

Not the chimney MU, it's sealed with a log burner and I've opened the door and checked.  Nothing in there.  They are only in the lounge, non in the kitchen or anywhere else and there is no musty smell anywhere.  Just can find where they can be getting in.

Afternoon all,  Raining and grey here today.  Don't mind because I'm too tired to do much after the Kew trip yesterday.  Had a lovely time and I will also post photos when I can.  Don't know how you are functioning after that bus trip Liri, think I'd still be in bed.  No delays on the return trains yesterday so I made good time and was home for around 9.30.

Woke up this morning to a scene from Amityville.  For some reason we have had an invasion of flies in the lounge.  Hundreds of them.  We can find anything wrong and can't find where they are getting in.  Have checked loft, cellar and guttering and can't find anything that has died, no smell either, but something is attracting them.  Have sent hubby out to track down some stuff to deal with the problem.  Hate flies, yuk.

Glad Bl and DD had successful events and hope business continues to be good.  Don't forget to relax occasionally DD.

Glad the boot is off Dove, doesn't it feel good.

Hope Pat and Clari feel better soon.

I know I will have forgotten loads of stuff so sorry to those I've missed out.

You did well Liri getting home at that time.  It was 9.30 by the time I got home and you had so much further to go.

Hi folks, everyone very chatty as usual.  Shattered today after trip to Kew so taking things easy.  Woke up this morning to an invasion of flies in the lounge bay window.  Can't find where they are coming from.  Have checked the cellar but nothing appears to have died there and no flies.  Also checked the loft and no probs there.  Just can't understand it.  Hate flies too.
