FG, do you do rock climbing or is it walking on your walks? Last one looks pretty high up.

GBBO and Poldark and rowan berries - sounds like autumn already. Summer doesn't seem to last very long. I always think of Runnybeak when Poldark is mentioned. Anyone heard from her? Is she OK? I liked her sense of humour.


Does anyone know if you can still get ironing spray, like Fabulon, in England? Couldn't find it in June. Not starch, but helps get the wrinkles out and makes the iron slide easily.

Looks as though it will be a sunny day today, but quite cool at the moment. Hope we can relax a bit after the BBQ.


Tomorrow I'm going to see my daughter, taking electric fencing, her birthday present.  Tuesday DIL & family are passing near here in their camper van on holiday so we'll take them out to lunch, Wednesday, packing for Norfolk. Have to take a posh frock as we are going to a birthday party at the weekend in Kent. Friday, lunch in Norwich.

I'm not sure about Scabious, I think it could be a Didiscus. Mine have leaves like that.

That's so sad.


I was just about to post about rain here but it now seems trivial. Anyway, we haven't had rain for weeks, everyone getting worried about drought and there was a forest fire not far from me. Really needed rain, but not on the day of my BBQ - today. So of course it rained! The rain had woken me up in the night but cleared up in the morning and everyone was sitting outside when the heavens opened! I had put extra tables in the dining room and the veranda so we all squashed indoors and everyone seemed very cheerful.


The dead lawn has greened up already!

My memory is too dodgy to even remember! Just been reading up on Wikipaedia. I'm 6 years older than Nick. One thing I did remember was that he broke his neck and recovered. He was almost crying when he got his medal.


Have been making salads and marinades. People keep ringing up and saying can they come or they can't come after all. I asked for people to let me know before I did the shopping. Was 32 last night, then 39, now 37.

You just beat me to it, Joyce! Hurray for Nick Skelton, brilliant round in the jump off, no one could catch him!
