Re: Flu jab.

Thanks Westi I must admit I was seriously poorly the pain in my head was so extreme that I sat on the landing crying and rocking for hours not knowing what to do. The first week of my illness I can't remember what I did eating, sleeping or anything. I always thought it was the flu jab but now I have...

The first time I was bitten on the front of my leg and it had a huge lump, a swelling and red stain all the way down my leg. My leg wa...

Re: Clouds and sunsets

We were lucky enough to spend a week in the Cotswolds at the beginning of September in a cottage in the middle on nowhere. There was no light pollution so we could see beautiful sunsets and sunrises and the stars were magnificent. We saw the milky way so many times. It was fabulous. How do I post ph...

Re: Today from our allotment we ate!

Hi Primrose, don't you think that the blackberries are amazing this year. We have been out for a walk today and I have never seen so many ripe, big blackberries before. We don't grow runner beans but our Kale is looking good. Have you tried Kale and Chickpea curry from Sarah Raven it is fabulous.
