Evening all, had a lovely walk along the canal this afternoon. Now sat in garden waiting for tea to cook in oven.

Where is CJ now on his travels? Or is he still in r'n'r?

Thread 22!!

It's been such a lovy day, I've had a potter In the garden and then DH and I went to a local Lavender Farm. The smell was amazing. Lavender ice cream and then we stopped at a pub for a glass of wine.

DS ran the London Tunnel to Towers (rotherhithe tunnel to billingsgate market) charity run for the London fire brigade. 22nd out of about 200. Not bad for running combat greens and boots!

Nickel thankfully you had good weather but I bet you need that bath!!

ilove we have a vine on the back of the house in full sun, but I'm not very successful with grapes, maybe I'm not pruning it properly?

Yes where is CJ?? woofs been quiet, maybe he's holed up with her!!!!

Took DS to see a stinky Titan Arum at the botanical gardens, last flowered 11 years ago. Smelt like bad feet.

Richtea19 Sun 19-Jul-15 18:32:00

pixie interesting shape!!!!

nickel, almost like you've been on exercise. Had a lovely start to the hols, lovely wedding at the stunning Madingly House in Cambridge and a sunny day today with a pub lunch and a lovely dog walk where we watched the Vulcan and Red Arrow displays from a distance. Now eating chocolate and trying not to sleep

pixieg1rl Sun 19-Jul-15 18:35:25

Aww mooj you should have come to visit me, I'm just the other side of Cambridge!

Richtea19 Sun 19-Jul-15 18:43:48

I really wanted to go to the air show, I bet the Vulcan was amazing mooj. I saw it years ago at Biggin Hill, but I think this weekend is its last flight?

Hi everyone. Had a really lovely dream last night as although as bit weird. It was about me and CJ or BA. Think it was more BA. Anyway we were both acting in Grey's Anatomy (a US medical drama). Think we were both doctors and every other scene together he was trying to kiss me!!! grin But for some reason I was giving him the brush off. As if! I woke up with a smile on my face smile

Well done rich's DS. Thats a great achievement 22nd out of 200. I bet he'll sleep well tonight.

Saw a friend this afternoon. Her daughter plays with mine. She was showing me photos of London where they'd visited last week. I always think of BA when anyone mentions visiting there. I assume he must live in the big city.

moojangles Sun 19-Jul-15 18:53:11

rich last flying season sadly. Timed it right as the reds always land here after Fairford, they fly together then break apart, did that bit right above our heads.
pixie, should've thought of that!!!

KellyHb Sun 19-Jul-15 19:16:17

Just saying someone's tweeted a pic of TG at some BBC studios. Wonder if it means anything.

Hello thread 22! I've been out this afternoon so missed the ceremonial handing over of the baton from thread 21 to the newcomer.

Nickel job starts in a couple of weeks so still time to brush up my work lingo before then.

Ilove nice grapes. The invitation to come along and make some wine naturally made me wonder what you would call the wine you made. Perhaps we should consider a very special, exclusive brand and perhaps it could make it onto the list of CJ merchandise - a bit National Trust like - obviously the Cream Tea is likely to be a hot seller. (Has anyone ever wondered just how you can have Devon or Cornish Clotted cream sent by post? Am I missing something?) So perhaps suitable drinks should be there too?

Ilovelblue Sun 19-Jul-15 21:23:50

No wonder it's been quiet on here today - everyone has been out and about!

I am failing in my duties as CJ's tour manager. He's gone AWOL - I haven't a clue where he is! I think he's due to go to Ireland with you ice - is that the first week in August, then with me to France the second week. Who wanted him after that? Seem to think BK had him booked for the last week in August. Is that right?

Richtea I prune the vine hard in January or February, before it starts to shoot again. I also tend to thin out the bunches. My Dad always used to thin out the grapes on each bunch but he was retired and had time on his hands - I am not quite so fastidious!

Rhubarb I'm trying to think of a name for the CJ wine. Captain's Choice maybe - or does that sound like rum? Bailbrook No 1? Captain on Tour?

icemistOBE Sun 19-Jul-15 21:38:15

Yes with me on 3rd August grin

pixieg1rl Sun 19-Jul-15 22:16:35

My summer stretches ahead like a CJ-less desert hmm

LolaKent14 Sun 19-Jul-15 22:20:09

I waved BK & DH off tonight as they drove off I thought what an odd shape on the roof rack.
As they turned the corner the tarpaulin slipped and I realised CJ was underneath it.
I had seen her spend an awful lot of time on the roof of the car. Waving off help from DH on several occasions telling him she had it all under control.
I did think it odd when I saw a couple of bergens get thrown in the boot.
Goodness knows when we might see him again!!!

KellyHb Sun 19-Jul-15 22:34:53

Your summer sounds just like mine's gonna be pix sad

Ilovelblue Sun 19-Jul-15 22:34:55

Struth Lola. Do we need to alert the airports, ferry ports etc?

Ladies, I'm out of touch with christenings. What's the protocol these days for a christening you can't attend? What sort of present do I send? (Do I send a present, presume so). Fortunately I will be away but wouldn't have gone - a 400 mile round trip.......

pixieg1rl Sun 19-Jul-15 22:48:40

She'll have her beady eye on him (literally)

KellyHb Sun 19-Jul-15 22:58:00

ice I was thinking, do you think TG knew for a couple of months now that LT wasn't coming back as now he's already got the basics of a story line for this Georgie Lane character?

pixieg1rl Sun 19-Jul-15 23:01:43

I would have thought so Kelly, they announced it with a partially developed character cast with whatshername, I imagine they would have been courting LT for a while before she said no.

KellyHb Sun 19-Jul-15 23:21:05

Thanks pix just wondered.

LolaKent14 Sun 19-Jul-15 23:48:42

ILove we need to alert everyone!
Operation Stack was in place today so I hope no one tried to duck under the tarpaulin. They would've got quite a shock being greeted by low slung combats....

icemistOBE Mon 20-Jul-15 07:27:15


Mum going home today, but it's only 2 weeks till we go so all good.

kel I would say the storyline was written based in LT coming back: would have been her sent to Kenya. Then once she declined to come back has been tweaked to fit around MK character. I would imagine TG is busy writing the scripts now and once they are ready will audition for cast. I don't think we'll get cast announcement for a while.

bk you best get cj back to me in time!!! grin
