    A load of yellow plums from a few abandoned allotment trees. 'Warwickshire Drooper', I reckon.
    I shall have to make jam, we can't eat that many without running, and not many folks want them when you try to give 'em away.

    Bet you won't struggle to give the jam away tho! We used to live next door to a Victoria plum tree, and one year my dad made 60lbs of jam from the one tree. Then our neighbour died and the couple that bought his house cut the tree down to put up a garage. Bugger!!

    Did think of you last week, they were chucking out a load of insulated panels that had been stood in the yard at work, but when i enquired someone else had already put their name to them...

    There was a real cheap caravan on ebay for spares local though?

    Edit - also cheap static, ebay item number 132318242571

    I was given a seat back DVD player by my yard neighbour. He wasn't sure if it worked as it didn't have a charger. I then had a rummage in the skip pile and found a charger for it, and IT WORKS!! I love it when a plan comes together

    Thanks for the thought man, that was really good of you. Dunno about the caravan yet though, we'd prefer to stick a wee structure up instead

    I pulled my back last Thursday when mowing, which resulted in getting the wee tractor stuck out in the field for a few days. All weekend I was back in the electric wheelchair. Today feeling loads better. I took the electric trike down a Country lane to feel the breeze. Just before exploring a track Ive never been down, I found a cash register and open cash tray and cash box in the hedge bottom. I did investigate and apart from receipts and plastic cards, all that was worth anything was gone. I saw a old man returning to his car (after his walk) parked across the road. I told him about the find. He said "strangely enough", last week he parked up there and was suprised to see a cardboard box in the car park. He went to move it out the way, but found it was very heavy. There was a old safe inside the cardboard box. Looks like the two finds could be linked. I phoned the police to report it. The police had to come to my wagon to get directions. Seems they find verbal directions over the phone confusing, when coming from a Yorkshire man.
    even a gypsy caravan is too much settling down.
