I have never see that film but I believe it's a real tearjerker so I would probably need cake as well. And chocolate and ice cream !
Right - off to watch the second part of A mothers son. Still haven't caught up with the planner !!!
Jean I found the conclusion disappointing let me know what you think.
Glyn. I thought it was a rom-com based on a popular book, boy and girl meet, fall out, meet again, etc was not prepared for the sad ending. It was a bit controversial as Anne Hathaway plays a northern lass, and I have to admit I thought her varying accent was very disturbing.
Now that is an idea, I do have a choc ice. I am off snailing but may have one after that.
Nola does that suggest that you are a Northener?
I have had a choc ice and I have stopped weeping.
Someone is having a party, what I find annoying is that you just hearing the thump of the music.
Nola do you have any joy with penstemons? I have been waiting 3 years for mine to flower
Glyn I only watched the film because my sister read the book and recommended it. I am now watching Sweet Charity
It is lovely here but the builders are working on a sunday
Glyn enjoy your last day of freedom.
I am beginning to think I have a duff penstemon, it grows but does not flower, this is the problem with cuttings from other peoples gardens you often do not have a named variety.
I moved my penstemon last year on advice that it would prefer full sun and it has grown happily but with no flowers, this is one of the more annoying aspects of gardening.
It is so hot here, I have come in for a drink, but why do builders think that the entire road wants to listen to their radio and why does no one else find this annoying?
Afternoon all. I have been out for my birthday treat today - paid for in May when the birthday actaully was. Went to a falconry and got up close and personal with some beautiful birds. The owner and his able assistant are knowledgeable, caring and engagingly enthusiastic. I'll post a piccie later.
Glyn, I still remember that Sunday-before-going back to work feeling, hope you're having a great day.
Kate, like you I would be very bothered by the builders' radio. Once my next door neighbours went out all day leaving a window ajar which meant that their alarm beeped continuously. The other-side-neighbour who has access to their house was also out. After about two hours I could stand it no more and took myself off for the rest of the day.
Flo that sounds a great birthday treat, I think a 'day out' gift is such a good idea.
Left overs for dinner.
Chicken and mushroom kebabs with kale and or cabbage for dinner.
No idea for dinner . Back from our jaunt and had a lovely day visiting . Weather was lovely in Yorkshire but it has gone really dark and oppressive here and the wind is picking up so may bring new baskets in.
Kate - homemade quiche , salad and of course cake . Chocolate brownie How wrong was I with Mother's Son ? Had a bet with hubby that it wasn't the son that ''dunnit'' - thought it too obvious in part one but hey-ho ! I agree though part one was much better.
I still have the olympic opening ceremony on planner - think I need a mass deleting session .
Flo - Glad you enjoyed your day. I think that was a very thoughtful pressie. We went to a falconry show last year . I love raptors - red kites especially. A few years ago we went to a farm in Wales Grideons maybe ? They feed the red kites at certain times of the day and they just know when the foods coming . A tractor comes out and throws the meat out ( all donated ) and I have never seen a sight like it . Great day but hubbie said we would have fared better in a land rover - it was in the sticks and we just drove on dirt tracks
I seem to have had a good old ramble today !
Oh and hello Nola - some else who may be able to help me out with plant probs.
They get quite excited here in Cornwall when a red kite is spotted. I went to London in May, for a rare treat, to see 'War Horse'. We stayed over night with some friends near Oxford and I was amazed to see lots of red kites . Apparently they were almost extinct in Britain just over twenty years ago. Impressive birds.
Thats right Pam . Just found the link for the farm we visited.http://www.gigrin.co.uk/
