Afternoon all. Been to a committee meeting and out to lunch chez friends.

Great news about your friend and his daughter, Hosta. Hope they have a lovely meeting.

That cat film made me laugh, Jo.

Morning all. Weather has got warmer, 20° forecast for today and sunny. But I haven't time to use it as I have a committee meeting followed by lunch with friends.

Thank you Clari for the tip. I haven't seen a picnic blanket like that in France. I could try the sports shop or get a waterproof mattress cover for a child's bed. He was clean in the night, but there was a terrible mess while we were watching Downton in a different room. Didn't help that OH had left the kitchen door open so that was 2 rooms to clean.

Thanks RB. He hated his bath, poor old thing, good thing I tied a soft shoe lace round his nose. He's so gentle except when being brushed or bathed.

Like the look of Dove's drink. Perhaps I should catch a cold!

My poor old dog had another smelly tummy upset this morning, I've had to throw his mattress away, 2nd one in 2 weeks. He now has a piece of carpet and a towel, must buy another mattress. He has cancer.

Not a good day for it as we had 2 couples of friends coming for lunch. Luckily the morning was mild so could open doors to garden and light the woodburner. Lunch went well, have just been doing washing up with OH.

 This is a view from the Chateau of Castelnaud where I went with daughter and my 2 small grand children on Thursday. It was a horrid drizzly day but it cleared up just enough to take a photo.

That clematis is the reason why I bought my Dr. Ruppel 2 years ago.

This is it in it's first year May 2014.



House plant unwell

Perhaps it is getting too much water. A lot of houseplants only need watering when the soil starts feeling dry.
