    Just got this reply from Henlow Lotties:
    Dear Suzie - At present we have 16 on the waiting list. Priority is given to residents of Henlow parish, so you could go to the top of the waiting list. When are you moving, and where to?

    Oooh I wonder how long it takes once one is 'top of the list'! How nice that he replied so quickly

    Noooo!

    I'm just wondering if there is someone with a bigger garden who doesn't care for gardening who might let you borrow/use it in exchange for some fresh veg. I know it's hard to believe but some peeps don't like gardening.

    Failing that, put all your tools in a van and bring them over - you can keep them in the barn (once I've cleared it out a bit )

    No worries, they may even have someone who could help store your tools until a plot is available.

    It's a nice village/small town and I'm sure they will welcoming, just make sure you protect yourselves against the rabbits .

    Sounds like a mega sulk wouldn't hurt lass! However, the news sounds pretty good on the lottie front. Give him your moving date - there might be one ready for you! Our paying-up date is March so by April the bloke knows if any are being given up.

    OH MY!! OH MY!! I have to share this with you right away...

    This is what I said to his email above:
    Dear Bert

    Thank you so much for your quick response. We are moving up to Henlow in the last week of April, I am currently de-erecting my greenhouse, cold-frames etc for storage.

    My husband serves with the Royal Air Force so we will be living near to the base. Gardening helps keep me sane when he gets shipped out to Afghan and other such places, but sadly the property they have issued us is tiny.


    And this is his reply:
    Dear Suzie - I have a vacancy at present which I'll keep for you. Let me have your contact details and I'll send info to you. Wishing you, and your husband especially - with tremendous thanks, all the very best for the future.

    Stand down everyone, as you were.

    It seems the latest diplomatic crisis has been averted and Nucleoid war has been saved for another day.

    Great news piskie - I'm confident to say you must be chuffed to pieces.
