It was a lovely sunny day today. Didn't need a coat, don't think it's been like that since before Christmas.

We haven't had pie, we had chicken fried in herby breadcrumbs, chips, courgettes and green beans and OH has gone off to choir practice. I hope there is something suitable on TV. If not I'll read my book The Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, really enjoying it.

Don't think I'd dare! What if the foil unwrapped?

Have planted 3 roses in a very large pot. One of my pots cracked so I took out the two roses in it and planted one of the Gertrude Jekylls that OH gave me for Christmas with them in the big pot he gave me as well. The two other GJs are going in the garden.

Morning all

After all the wind and rain it's a lovely day here, like Joyce's. Should be able to plant the roses that OH gave me for Christmas.

I always wonder that, about washing machine detergent drawers. Never thought about the dishwasher, good tip, must try it.

Thanks. It's Early Sensation, I love it, it's climbed up the remains of the fallen greengage tree.

Went to the bank, took an hour. I have a savings account and it's paid interest for years into an account without a chequebook and now the government says bank accounts have to be used every year or they'll be closed down. So cheque book ordered and internet set up. Their internet is a slow as mine!

Then I went to my favourite clothes shop and bought a top, a cardi and a dress. Rare I get the chance without OH hovering! But I haven't bought anything there since we went to New York in 2015.

I don't think box would damage foundations.
