Hi all. Well, it's been another wet one here - again. Was glad of my waterproofs! Still, at least we didn't get any actual flooding in this area, just very wet.
Glad your mum is mending, lillyrose, that must be a relief. Give yourself a bit of time off before tackling the garden - it's supposed to be a bit nicer from Wednesday onwards, so maybe you'll be able to get it done in the dry instead of the wet.
Thanks, I'm mended too and trying, once again, to be careful. It's easy to forget that I'm not getting any younger. Yes, it's a shame about the tree - have realised it's a cherry plum - but we reckon it's about 120 years old so it's had a good run. I shall try and take some cuttings but they may or may not work. I've already got a couple of seedlings that I found nearby and potted up last year, but they probably won't come true. The leaves are the right colour, though, and as far as I know, this is the only purple cherry plum nearby. The landlords have decided to have it taken out, but we'll keep the wood for a log pile and any that's burnable. There's plenty for both.
Oh Richard, you are devout, aren't you We should really attend more often ourselves and are obviously not correctly worshipful. We must try harder
Nice one on the car, Sue. Ours failed and it was quite expensive, as the axles had to be taken off and things done with bearings and whatnot. There you go. At least the wheels aren't about to fall off or anything.
There are good smells coming from the kitchen, they need investigating...
