Keeping everything crossed

I'm so sorry Jacqueline. They must have had several candidates, some with good qualifications or experience. But it doesn't mean you won't get a job in a Garden Centre. Keep looking! Maybe do a gardening course while you're waiting.

Some of my favourite B&Bs are run by gay men. There's a lovely one in Stoke by Nayland, one with lovely breakfasts in Probus near Truro and a comfortable one with a pretty garden in Sandy Park near Chagford. The men were so welcoming and nice, lots of extra little touches to make you feel welcome.

Wow, GD, I didn't know camellias lived that long. Gorgeous.


That must have been a bit of a shock for them, Pat!

Morning all.


Poured in the night, woke us up. Very grey at the moment, cold, 3°.


I must type up minutes from a recent meeting.

Good Morning.


Have a lovely day MU and I hope you get some bargains with the money you have got.


I had a surprise good evening last night, just what was needed after the horrific events of yesterday. Son rang, he was looking after his 2 little boys as his wife was working late and wondered if I would like to go round and help with supper, bath and bedtime story. They are so cute. Little Edward will be 3 in May, he wanted to show me how he can count to 10 in French and in English. Son, the dentist, said he was exhausted, he'd been looking after them all day and it was much more tiring than going to work!


The rain woke us up in the night.

DIL was working late so I went to help son feed and bath the 2 little boys (2 and 1). Fun evening, played and read stories. Tipping with rain, 5°, feels cold. OH was at choir practice.

If he had been wearing explosives they would probably exploded when he was shot?

What a shock, we were quietly having late lunch, early dinner (because OH has choir practice tonight) in front of the telly watching Escape to the Country when the news came on about the attack. A group of French students on a visit were run into by the car.

Crikey, a lot has happened since my last post.


Hello Sunflower Lady, but I still think of you by your Christian name. I hope life has been going well for you.


I have been up a ladder cutting old and dead bits out of Felicité and Perpetué, then I came in to do late lunch as it's OH's choir evening. We eat in front of Escape to the Country, but that was interrupted by the news of the terrorist? attack at Westminster. Apparently some French students on a visit were mown down by the car on the bridge.


Just spoken to son on phone who has asked me round as soon as my loaf of bread is cooked.

Don't like mustard!


Putting off going outside, not in a rose pruning mood.
