    All these photos of all your gorgeous pears is making me me sad because this year for some unknown reason my old pear tree has died. Its just turned black with the start of the baby pears on it, so it was still alive in the spring. Am guessing it is about 60 plus years old so its sadly come to the end of its life.

    Londoners...
    I need to go to Kings Cross, Waterloo, and Borough Market. Is Camden near any of those?
    TIA

    Edit: Also need Covent Garden. So no, it isnt. Never mind, no cheap 2 hour session of fizz for me.

    I am now all grown up.

    I am going to London and actually staying there.

    Train booked with front facing seats booked
    Hotel booked
    RSVP sent

    We have 3 hours between arrival and the wedding, so need to find something to do between Kings Cross and Finsbury.

    We also will have 2 hours the following day early afternoon to plan something on route between Finsbury and Kings Cross.

    Im a board guide on Pie Making Moneysaving. I'm a volunteer to help the pie production & consumption run smoothly. I can help merge tastes and fillings. Any pies made are mine & are not those of other Moneysavingexperts. Im a board guide not a qualified baker and as such do not make every type of pie. If you spot a quiche or flan please report it.

As it was, Ravenswood stepped forward, as long as transporter found (me lol), so after medical check up, neutering, vaccinations and microchipping, they go into foster and new loving homes will be found or them. They are both young dogs and should be snapped up as both lovely boys, just wanting someone to love
