    Hi all

    Feeling very decrepit today.
    It is our court case against the ex NDN, all done on Zoom. We have decided Moira will do it, because she is less likely to lose her temper. I am banned from the house whilst it is ongoing.

    Good morning all from a comfy bed in Lincs 😊 ☕️ 
    Somehow I stayed up until past midnight 😲 nattering with OHs old school friend who came to visit … so a very slow start this morning 🥱 
    Good move @punkdoc … leave Moira in charge … you can come for a mooch about here with us … 

    I’ve decided we have to get rid of the buddleja in the front (west-facing) garden (it seems to be the cause of my rhinitis/sinusy problems). I’m thinking of replacing it with H. paniculata ‘Wim’s Red’ … anyone grow this? 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    I don't grow it @Dovefromabove, but in pictures it looks fabulous.

    Morning all.

    I hope it goes well for Moira @punkdoc. Wise to leave her to it.

    Wish I could join you there @Dovefromabove, I love going to GCs.

    Going to the SM this morning, running out of essential stuff.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Fingers crossed for Moira @punkdoc.
    Have fun at the GC @Dovefromabove.
    Nice to see you @Biglad.
    Preparations for tomorrow's Black Shuck Festival are in their final throes now - emails, phone calls, Whatsapp messages...  
    OH watered the whole garden while I was at the meeting last night (where we were also ripping up fabrics into ribbons for the fire sprite's costumes...)

    Morning all,  Just finished moving 20 wheelbarrows of logs and stacking them in the wood shed.  Officially kn***ered.   Went to fat club and was surprised to find I had only put on 2lb  I'm back on track so that should soon go.  Going to get talons sorted this afternoon.
    Hope the zoom goes your way @punkdoc

    Hello all, fingers crossed for you @punkdoc and Moira. Just back from the SM it was heaving with holidaymakers also went to another shop to order the plinthes (skirting in english) to go with the laminate flooring, very unhelpful chap said we couldn't order them until September.
    Maybe @Dovefromabove you have none allergic rhinitis and the buddleja isn't the cause of your problems? 
    I have managed to shade some of my tomatoes and peppers with greenhouse shading that I found in the shed but some are already passed it. The courgettes have stopped producing, hopefully they will start again when it cools down a bit.
    Take care all catch up later.

    Well, we lost.
    Judge agreed the gas came from our supply, but the amount was unproven, despite the fact our bills are now down to the same amount they were before the ex NDN's converted it.
    Silly I know but I am devastated, I can't believe the trail of destruction that man leaves, continues and he gets away with it.
    Anyone know a hitman? [ joke ]

    I can’t quite believe that @punkdoc. Surely it’s a matter of you win if the judge agrees that gas was stolen, even if a figure cannot be reached?! Angry for you. At least the culprit is no longer under your nose, so compensation in that way. 

    Pretty warm here and would feel hotter if not for the keen breeze.
