    Horrible. Good that you're home safe now.

    I hate diversions, especially when there are a couple of different ones within a few miles of each other. A memorable one was outside Tamworth, way back when they were building a new access road, all traffic was diverted but then it got muddled up with other diverted traffic and we took over an hour only to end up right back where we'd blooming well started, so the second go of the same diversion saw me pulling over and using a map. Which worked.

    Good morning.

    Seeing as we all know what a jar of Marmite looks like, I have deleted it.

    I have no idea what triggers the 'next door's garden' syndrome as I don't use anything that is too big.
