When we moved to France we found we weren't always the best at keeping in touch with everyone - the blog makes this a lot easier. It'll also give us something to read back on and have a laugh/cry when we're too old to do the things we write about in the blog :flower:

Thanks GR... I'll see how the cordial goes (I have the heads steeping just now) :flower: Can I ask - why do you need the remove the petals? is it just the way that you do it, or is their a specific reason?
