Take the longest time and double it then add some on for mistakes like when you screw some on the frame on back to front! Good luck, Wonky.

Hi MU  Don't have iPlayer, not allowed in France but those in the know get it. But we have Catch-up in Norfolk. We are going to the cottage at the end of the month.

That kettle looks very shiny, did you buy a new one or do mystic ones stay shiny?

What is your weather like? (2)

Lovely day yesterday, early 20°s. Looks like being the same today.

Morning all, welcome back Runny, missed you.

Sun is shining, sky is blue, gardening today.

Forgot to record GW last night  Forgot to watch Beechgrove on Thursday  Apparently the lovely Chris Beardshaw's legs were on show. Bother, I missed them  I wonder if I'll remember and be awake if it's on tomorrow morning.

Morning all.

OH's choir's concert went well last night, standing ovation. My sandwiches were nearly all eaten, some left for me tonight when OH is singing again in another town.

Was really warm yesterday, in the early 20s, looks like another warm day today. I forgot to shut the GH door and windows when we got back last night but there wasn't a frost.

Forgot to record GW last night and the Evelyn Waugh thing about a school.

Back from Concert. Most of the sandwiches were eaten, just enough left for me tomorrow evening when OH sings in tomorrow's concert, I'm not going. But I am going to their after concert lunch on Sunday, it's usually fun. The concert was really good.

My stairs are wood so I sweep them with a dustpan and brush. But 40 minutes isn’t nearly enough to vacuum this big old farmhouse.

 Been a lovely warm sunny day today, in the early 20s. Lunched outside again.

Morning all.

Another wow Hazel! How old are they? Sorry your OH is poorly.

Been a busy week and Internet continues to be troublesome. Apparently most of the Dordogne were without it the other day.

 Was out most of the day yesterday, but passed the GC so was able to buy some more dahlias and tomato plants. The dahlias I’d stored all rotted, the ones in the garden are now starting to shoot, early, frost risk not over yet. My tomato seedlings burnt in the GH when I went out leaving the door and windows shut.

 We had lunch outside yesterday in the sunshine, first time this year.

 Today I’m making about 30 rounds of sandwiches for the orchestra and soloists’ tea. Tonight is OH’s choir’s concert, first night, in the local town. Tomorrow it’s in another town. “The Messiah”.

Morning all.

Well done, Hosta!

Saw a flush of blue from the bedroom window. The bluebells are out in the shady corner by the summer paddock. My favourite wildflower. That is where I'm going to bury Tigger's ashes (Border Collie) but I didn't want to upset the bluebells, was waiting for them to come out. I wonder if there will be any left in England when we arrive on 30th May.

Today I will be making about 30 rounds of sandwiches for orchestra and soloists for tonight's concert, "The Messiah".
