What started as a simple house move 3 months ago expanded into a stressful chest tightening episode that having not experienced previously was a life change that I won't be doing again,so the 5 year stop over in dorset before moving to Dartmouth in Devon I can assure you will not ...I repeat not be happening....so this is it Gazza...Wimborne Dorset it is.......stress over.you've landed fella....even the solicitors on our moving day turned the screw mid journey down the M3 ......there's me rallying the moving company lorries plus 3 cars full in Fleet services into a defensive cavalry formation as the approaching Indians gathered around ready to slaughter us with bad news arrows......every 10 mins another bad news arrow would head our way in the shape of phone calls saying that the move had been halted due to funding problems with 2 others in the 7 family chain.
45 heart wrenching minutes ticked by as each player in the horrible game got their act together so finally we were allowed to get the wagons rolling to Dorset.
So here we are 7 days later,surrounded by 100,s of boxes,mum is settling in thank God,ok her shoulder is tolerable and physio is planned shortly and hopefully will suffice but if not a full shoulder
Replacement is on the cards......still she seems happy after her move.....the fear of her home in Staines being flooded is now a memory and for him upstairs to spare her what turned out to be 200 yds from disaster....we're ever so greatful.
Judy has just finished her first week of commuting 2 plus hours to heathrow and has come home each night flagging....bless her .
So CV,s are being typed for local work as I want her near us and not sitting in motorway queues
Knack earring herself.
Our kitchen is in disarray,as we have got to do a partial re build to allow for new appliances
But I tell you what it's amazing just what you can cook without an oven,the slow cooker,microwave,wok,plus my fishing gas cooker has furnished us with something edible each day
And although a challenge it's been fun.
The multi fuel burner has been a joy to use,the lick of flame in a darkened rom each night has warmed us and relaxed us all in one so what a bonus that has been.
Me...well I'm so happy.....on our first day here we stood in the garden and watched 2 buzzards fly over that are nesting in the forested area behind our back fense,and if that wasn't good enough we stood there and 4 long tailed tits alighted on the feeder 6 feet away and you know what it was worth all the stress just for that golden moment to welcome us to the countryside in our new home in Dorset.

Since the father in law has had his fall, the yeti in pink knickers has been staying at his house until he can get some of his mobility back. She pops in now and again for bits and pieces, but mostly it's a phonecall. Having not called in for a while she pretended to be concerned that I was looking after myself alright.
I told her I had run out of cups. Why? Well they are all in the dishwasher waiting to be done. Not to worry I said there is still the best china to tide me over. A big YOU DARE then asked if I had changed the bed linen. Well the mysteries of all mysteries to us common mortals is how do you get the duvet back into it's cover. The bed is a bit wiffy on my side but I can sleep on her side until she comes back I ain't going to tie myself up in knots getting that bleeding thing back in the cover. I did suggest I could ask the merry widow up the road to give me a hand with it. The phone went dead. Fifteen minutes later she storms in, armed with polish and duster, the hoover came out of it's hiding place and an hour later. Dishes and laundry done, bed made, fridge stocked up and I am ready to go. She just Hurrumped about the house so I am still mystified wether it was me using the best china or the though of the merry widow flitting around the bedroom that made her get her @rse in gear.
Whatever it was I now know that just using the right words when you want something done, gets it done.

I know there is few of you out there who have grown this tomato...but do you know how/why such a name?
Do you know any 'back round story' for the variety or its origins?
