Special treat - nice bit of lambs liver and onions , mashed spuds and it was supposed to be a savoy but they were out of stock  :ohmy: so I'll have to finish off the mashed carrot and swede, all covered with spoon standing of course.  :D Warm pie with apple and custard for pudding if there's any left.

Oh what a blow, excuse the pun. Salvage some more of the windfalls & get a batch of mincemeat on the go.. that time of year will soon be here
 :tongue2:

It's particularly annoying as I'd tried to pick them with the pole picker earlier in the week but they weren't ripe enough to come off  :( The tree is 40 years old if a day and a 1lb apple falling 30ft onto concrete doesn't leave a lot of salvage. I'll try again with the pole picker next week but not for mincemeat, I still have a tub of Mrs Bee style in the fridge from 2013? waiting to be used  :blush:

my wife made an apple and pumkin pie

 :tongue2: Now that's right up my street - almost worth buying a pumpkin for (or at the very least growing some next year).

Sailed back over the Channel from Guernsey to Salcombe in a 30ft yacht that night - was interesting to say the least! Since then the BBC weather forecast seems to have become far too pessimistic whenever there's anything remotely like bad weather about..

Every puff of wind is 'personalised' now, Mr Dog.

I cannot understand why, but am afraid that if the BBC are involved, I'm going to be less interested!

Not likely to forget that Growster - was en route from Manchester to visit the family in Hastings the day after and thought it might be rather an adventure.  ::)

Took 13 hours altogether, including a 5 hour coach trip from Victoria coach station for the last leg, which took in all points SE (probably including Growster Towers had I but known it at the time.)

I'd just started a new job in Tonbridge, Jay, and my neighbour banged on the door to enquire if I'd seen my car...

Flattened by a brick wall! The greenhouse had several panes all over the garden - some were unbroken too!

The A21 was a nightmare, as you found out! Chainsaws everywhere, and sad sights as well.

My strawberry plants are fruiting again  :) However something is making a 3 mm hole in the skin of the berry and eating the inside. I think it might be slugs as I seen a few around the bed but just want to get your suggestions. Any ideas?
