I don't know any of itv's journalists but Anne Davies used to come into our restaurant in R.O.T. So it was strange to see her on the news here but don't think it was a Nottingham hospital.

 

In the 80s and early 90s, Anne used to be on Central News (ITV) but is now on BBC Local News - and has been for several years. She still lives locally.

The picture is quite poignant as it's a small boy discarding his toys and opting to have a nurses doll instead.

 

His discarded toys where “Superheroes” Spider-Man & Batman & replaced with a new action hero an NHS nurse wearing a face mask & cape & the only colour in the picture a Red Cross.

Banksy @ his best.

£1.047 at Waitrose Newark - but a much better class of customer! Their diesel was £1.097 when I filled my wife's car a couple of days ago. Harrison's at Lowdham nearby have totally shut down as had M&S at Southwell this morning. 

Southwell M & S are still open Phil. Wife was most upset when I told her it was closed but it was open this evening.

I was surprised they were shut. Will try again next week. There were a few people collecting fresh cooked pizzas and pies from the Waggon and Horses when we drove past. Might try their fish and chips next week. Are the Moon doing takeaways?

After being a bit 'below par' on Friday.. I spent Saturday planting up and potting on... 

 

Yet more Aquilegia and Echinacea seedlings were potted on.

I took 'basal' cuttings of both Red and Yellow lupins a few weeks back.  The Yellow ones have failed but all red ones have rooted really strongly and now been potted up singly. I'll see if I can get more Yellow ones.

 

Assorted Fuschia and other cuttings were potted up as single young plants.

 

My first sowing of Green Beans had not emerged after 15 days so I checked them out.  All had 'rotted off'. :(

 

So.... I planted four more of them in different compost and less deeply.  I also added four each of two other varieties of old seed.  They have two chances.

 

Also planted out the last few of the very old Carrot seeds I had. . and also some more Sunflowers.. to repace direct planted ones which had also not appeared.

 

Forecast is for cold tomorrow.. so I'll probably be playing about with the hi-fi.  Or even finally tackling some D.I.Y....

The moon are doing takeaways. Order on phone and they bring it to the pub door to hand over at safe distance. We’ve not had one at all as Jane is doing a lot of cooking to keep herself sane. We did have afternoon tea from them on VE Day as did all our neighbours. It was excellent.

Letsavagoo, Is that the Full Moon at Morton?

If so it was one of my favourite pubs when we went a ride down by the river. If memory serves me right it was a "Free House"?

The Moon was my local for many years preceded by the Bromley then the Crown at Rolleston and then either the Coach at Thurgarton or the Waggon, which is in walking distance. I think the Moon was tied to Warwick and Richardsons in the 60's when Harry Grange was the landlord and then I think it was Mansfield Brewery. I think Mick Sissons followed Harry Grange as landlord. It's a free house now. Because of drink driving I only use the Waggon now. Currently, if you take a large container the landlord will fill it with ale for you although he's run out at the moment! It's owned by the family members of the Blue Monkey Brewery which operates from a 'shed' behind Ikea at Giltbrook. Not my ideal setup for a craft brewery but they have won numerous prizes.

Col..... re seeding.  I feel your pain.  I have a row of green beans that have not broken through after three weeks.  Also a row of carrot seeds that never made an appearance.

The garden is not what it used to be. Seems like it used to be abundant.  We had stuff to freeze for the winter.  Not anymore.  Even the weeds seem puny.

I've done all the required stuff, fertilizing etc.  Maybe it's just gerrin' owd, like me.  :(

Lucky you. I know I have said before on here that if I came back to Nottinghamshire I would live in one of those villages relatively close to the Trent.

Just before we decided to emigrate we looked at buying a house at Bleasby and stupidly thought it was too far to travel to Kirkby for work.

Who knows if we had bought that house we may have stayed in Notts.

When fishing on the sandy bank at Fiskerton near the end of the wall in the direction of Hazelford I often used to leave my gear way up on the bank so the barges did not wash it away and stroll down to The Bromley Arms at lunchtime for a couple of pints of Kimberley mild and cheese and onion cobs.

That goes back to the days when Kath Taverner was landlady. She had a bloke living there called Stan but I'm not sure what his function was! The Brom was a proper pub in those days, not the fancy gastropub it's become. We used to meet in the Bromley tea rooms on a Monday night for Young Conservatives in the 60's. It wasn't really political, just somewhere for the 20 somethings to meet. I'm still married to the girl I met there! After YC's we used to repair to the bar and drink bottles of Kimberley Special Brew. I've not been tempted to go there in years. At least my local, the Waggon has remained virtually unchanged and isn't a fancy foodie establishment. The attraction of the Bromley is mainly its riverside setting.
