If it is not raining where you are it will be at some point-just watched the procession down The Mall-we do do these thing awfully well -I can feel my chest filling with pride and am usually quite cynical about this stuff.

Robbie didn't sing Angels-the rest were okish but these concerts always look good on paper but sometimes................not sure what Queen makes of all this-would an 86 year old granny queue for tickets?Charles got his speech just about right.

Have taken a tour of the grounds and that it is about it-bag of snails in the litter bin at the end of the road-I hope they had a happy life


05/06/2012 at 14:57

No rain yet.

Are you not squeamish about snails?

05/06/2012 at 15:27

I have done so much painting my arm is aching - and I've only stopped for a break! Have to go back to it soon. We were going to paint outside but the weather changed our plans so now the inside is getting painted first. 

I have discovered a pair of goldfinches are building a nest in the creeper right next to my bedroom window....hope they have better luck than the robins!

No rest for the wicked

I am having a guilt trip about killing stuff direct but don't mind if it happens through a third party.

Have watched balcony appearance and planes-am now jubileed out.

Lottie -when you've finished................

05/06/2012 at 15:59

I think you should take full responsibility for your murderous behaviour.

I hate to say this but you are unlikely to see another Jubilee.

I was planning chicken salad, the rain has arrived and I am now thinking carrots and gravy.

Lamb shanks and jersey royals with mint sauce from garden grown mint-when will I be harvesting my potatoes Lottie?

If Charles becomes King in the next few years I might get to see his silver and by then the boffins will have come up with the elixir of eternal yoof-I shall be fine and go on for many years yet

My potatoes in a bag are getting quite big, at least I did not need to worry about watering them, how much longer do we wait?

Very optimistic Geoff.

TV preview for tonight?

05/06/2012 at 16:20

Not much again it is Tuesday so Holby is on and Silk that I think you are watching-Big Brother back on 5 but I have never got into that.

Queen is on at 6 -that is not the group-that would be silly.

My perceived wisdom on pots is wait till they have flowered but we need the Potato Queen to make a ruling


05/06/2012 at 16:53

I have a film on standby tonight may be the night.

I am queened out.

Do I share pots with OH who will cover them in a chilli sauce?

05/06/2012 at 16:58

I think Queen needs a rest-there was speculation that as she was wearing black last night Philip had died but she was still on duty

So much football coming up-I will need loads of recorded stuff

05/06/2012 at 17:02

I am already looking forward to the footy.

I did wonder if there was bad news would it be suppressed?

05/06/2012 at 17:11

I am emigrating for the duration of the Euros-who is the £10 on?

05/06/2012 at 17:16

Germany. They will enjoy the environment and they are very organised, they will also want revenge for Chelsea's flukey win.

05/06/2012 at 17:30

Who are the rank outsiders-England?

Do we have to suffer commentators droning on about penalties when England play Deutschland?

06/06/2012 at 10:04

Geoff, when did you plant the potatoes? And what variety? I will then predict!

I will not be watching any football!

06/06/2012 at 10:07

Homeguard-flower buds just appearing now.

06/06/2012 at 10:12

I have no flower buds on my potatoes

England will be disappointing, the commentators will have a field day, someone will lose their temper and get a red card, all good fun.

Someone is digging up the road behind me 

06/06/2012 at 10:15

They are either tunnelling in out tunnelling out-are they whistling and dropping dirt out of the bottom of their trousers?

06/06/2012 at 10:17

There is no whistling here, just noise.

Garden is looking damp, but there is some sunshine and black clouds.
