I liked tonight's programme best so far, but I missed Wednesday's. Though the Japanese one was very expensive. The owners paid and they were happy.

Dove, they look scrumptious!

After last post I went out and dug up the GH tomatoes. They were covered in whitefly, never had it before. I sprayed every other day for about 10 days with soap solution to no avail. Now I've sprayed the empty GH with insect killer. No bees or ladybirds in it.

I wonder if Clari's knickers will ever turn up?

Lily you were so pretty, I bet you still are, can't have changed that much.

Thank you all for your kindness about the little pussycat. I was feeling a bit low about it.

Went shopping this morning, hung out washing, lunched, had a snooze, watched Escape to the Country, where has the day gone? Must clear out the dead tomatoes in the GH and plant out the rest of the violas.

Sad afternoon today. Nearly a month ago a really skinny little cat turned up, starving. Took her to the vet for worming, de-fleaing etc. He said she was old and had missing teeth so couldn't manage to feed herself by hunting. No identification. She was very affectionate and seemed to like it here. But instead of getting better she just ate an enormous  amount and had diarrhoea, which was becoming quite a problem. And my cat hated her.

Took her back to the vet this afternoon. He said she had something seriously wrong with her digestive system, probably cancer and would die soon. He said it would be best to put her to sleep. So I left her with him.

It's my birthday

I think I'm now thoroughly confused. So many people have given so many descriptions I don't know who is who anymore. I think I'm still me.

But, having seen a photo of KEF before I knew she was blond and I've seen a photo of Lyn and she's small, slender and blond.

Snooze well, Stacey. Lovely to see you when you pop in.

I went to the bank this morning for chat with new bank manager, except now there seems to be a team of young accounts managers for clients. She was young and pretty. I had a small savings account that she said wasn't worth keeping open so cashed it. Had email this morning from favourite clothes shop to say they were having a "choc" week with reductions of 30% - 50% of their autumn range. Spent remains of small savings account.

Welcome Pauline, KEF may tell you she's the sensible one but really it's me

Must rush, meeting with bank, nothing serious.
