I have smilies and avatars, is that because I use a laptop?

Morning all. Sunny, forecast is for 30°.

Daughter and family are arriving today from North of France. They are moving to 1 hour 20 mins from here. Removal men have some trouble with the lorry and will arrive at new house on Wednesday. I must go and sort out bedrooms.

That has reminded me - Black Beauty, always made me cry. Why didn't I think of ponies? I had a New Forest pony when I was young. But I love Dartmoor ponies.

I've been gardening and planting plants I bought when I was in Suffolk and chez Beth Chatto. Lovely and stress free. But now I've realised it's nearly 8pm (French time) and I haven't started cooking and the washing is still on the line!

Have fun Dove.

I've just been sorting out which photos from Waterperry gardens and our trip to New York to get developed to stick in the album. Taken ages.

Pat, I love my laptop, so much easier to see and type on than an Ipad. It has a thing you wipe your finger on. I never use it. My OH bought me a wireless mouse, it's very good and easy. You plug in a little USB thingy and have a mouse on a mat without a wire.

Have done some planting

Favourite native mammal?

They can be quite fierce. I found two males having a fight, on was wounded so it moved it away and put it on a soft bed but it died. Sometimes they make nests in people's lofts and make a heck of a racket at night! Especially in mating and having babies seasons.

What sort of strange things?

Sometimes I think time is a funny thing and the past and the present get muddled up.
