Putting the burglary and car theft saga behind us
We now have a replacement car and I would like to thank all those who have prayed and stood with us during this stressful time
dealing with the insurance company.
The outcome is that our local For*d dealer found us a car that is identical to our stolen one but with a few extras. Ours had 12,000 miles on the clock when stolen and the new one has 6,900. It also has larger alloy wheels (better road holding), privacy back windows, blue-tooth and voice recognition radio and is one month newer.
The dealer dropped the price considerably and the insurance company in the end settled on £100 less than we had to pay for the car. Prayers answered.
I also finished my spring cleaning this week that I started in January! That's as long as one does not include the kitchen cupboards! I am missing Vera, a German au-pair who was attending our house church while she was here last year. She came in and cleaned all my kitchen cupboards.
Life has been particularly busy recently with so many different events and continues to be so. I look at the thousands of photos on my computer that I have taken this summer and hope I will get to them all eventually.
It really is Autumn, the second series of Downton Abbey began on TV last Sunday. What a treat.
People often tell me that I am 'green fingered'
No such thing in my opinion
It's a matter of trial and error and hard work
The crab apples are plentiful this year as is all 'tree fruit' due to a warm spring and wet summer
I have been wishing that I had not given away all my jam and jelly making equipment. I used to make a delicious jelly with these

Remember seeing these in the sky during world war II.
