Hello everyone, bit cool here, so not really done much apart from a quick look around. Will pop out later to quickly put in some more aubrietta I bougth yesterday and plant my very first herbs, sage and tarragon.
Kittens are such sweet things Bev, he's got a lovely face
Gorgeous kittens, BPK!
Tina, I agree. Kick ass! I have found, when disciplining wayward OH, that if I make up my mind he is going to do something, he does it meekly. I don't have to nag - think he takes one look at my face! If I haven't yet made up my mind, he senses it and takes no notice of me.
Blackest, the water situation is one that can be a limitation or an opportunity. Are the beer cans at the back of the fridge?
PP and FG, we three 20 somethings are in our prime. Maybe we should call ourselves the Gardening Supremes.
Matty, indulge yourself and take a rest. I've abandoned my gardening plans, cleaned out cupboards this morning and will get out the summer clothes this afternoon, putting away the winter ones. This will lead to an orgy of washing and ironing and a nice glow of self satisfaction, all in the optimistic hope that summer will eventually come.
To anyone I've missed - hope the day goes as planned and find a bit of time to spoil yourselves. Dove has talked so much about bara brith that I'm making some later, together with a meat pie for tomorrow. Won't hold my breath for a weight loss at Fat Club next Tues.
The little angel is still in bed. Am trying very hard not to get wound up. Will be having his guts (if he has any left) for garters when he eventually emerges and if he dares give me that silly grin I witnessed this morning at 3.40 I swear I will black his eye, or better still, push his motor bike over. That will hurt him more.
Was contemplating painting the wall of next door's garage, which forms a barrier between us, but it is so windy and turned really cold. Another day.
Finished for day, on lightly turning my jewell bed I found the Lobelia 'Queen Victoria' which I thought I had lost - it was slaughtered by slugs last year -is coming back and is bigger, Now how to keep it clear of the slimey etc etc etc
Quite like this early finishing - wonder how long it will last - probably until next week when visitors are exppected from down under and loo still needs decorating
Oh Matty-don't give in and do the painting yourself...stand firm!
GG-eat it standing up-doesn't count then

Verdun - did you get my PM?
Morning everyone. I am going to have to start posting before I go to bed! You're all such early birds.
Sue, love that ad. Now I know what's been causing my problem all these years. Wasn't the food, it was the shampoo. Always use one for volume too.
Oop, son just emerged and gone in garden. Dare I hope that he's going to do what I need. Was juvenile and didn't speak to him or say goodnight yesterday. Always petulant kids at heart aren't we.
Hope all the workers have got good weather today so they can get out and do some planting. I will be ecstatic if my slabs are put back as I can then put everything back. I bet you will all be glad too cos it will mean I won't be moaning about it any more.
Have a good day.
Ooooooo bliss just had a lovely lie in. Overcast here this morning, just of to GC and will have a breakfast there , naughty naughty.
Shall I pop to supermarket and look for shampoo for fine, sleek hair?.. Are we on to a winner
Enjoy your day peeps...
Loved the shampoo ad, Sue.
We had a good day out on Friday with a stay in a lovely B & B in Eymet (South Dordogne) We went to 3 bastide (fortified, stone built) villages. On Friday night we went to a play by an English theatre group in an old chateau. The play was about what happened next in 3 Shakespeare plays, Hamlet, King Lear and Romeo and Juliette. Romeo and Juliette hadn't died after all, they had been married 20 years and had loads of children, including triplets! Juliette had got very fat and Romeo had gone off her! It was very funny.
15 halfish bags of rubble and barrowloads of earth which will be great for garden as it is such a lovely texture. No clay. Can now get everything back and then start thinking what I can do with the expanse of garden behind the Magnolia tree. Any suggestions for something quick and easy. Thought about wild flowers but would I be too late for scattering seeds and how should I prepare the earth. I'm such a numpty.
Glad to see I'm not the only Lazy Mary Woo. A bottle of sleek and smooth please if you're going.
