I understand - it's a tough ask given your circumstances scary. My drive to Stonleigh Park was a killer for me, it was about 160 miles one way - that's why I had to stop over in a Travel Lodge for two nights.

Don't worry about it mate - I'd hate to be the one held responsible for a friend's diazepan habit!  what:-o

Made a lot of interesting contacts and treated myself to a Jardin De france (ratchet) sacateurs. I was so impressed with the demo that I actually bought one there and then! Fabulous bit of kit, and they were being offered for 20.00 instead of the usual 30.00. Did you get one after Wonky?

Just catching up on your pic's , Gee, couldn't help but notice these marvellous secateurs. I bet you bought these from the same two enthusiastic French chaps that sold me a pair at a craft show in Exeter last year. I bought them for Ruth as her hands aren't that strong but to be quite honest I use them all the time.

After eliding not to move to France I had a lot of extra cutting back to do; these made it a doddle. have EASILY sliced through 1" thick prunings with these. Thoroughly recommended.

Yep - same two guys! Brilliant talker the one I spoke to, very fluent in English with a distinct French accent. Not a hard task to sell though - a very impressive bit of kit that sells itself, once you saw it demonstrated.
