Not ramshackle at all Wonky Womble, looks lovely.

My pots are now recovering from the lack of watering while we were away, but some didn't make it. Single petunias seem much more drought resistant than double ones.

Morning all. We had storms in the night, now it is lovely and cool, 15°. Was 27° in our room last night. Arthritis played up, had very bad night.

Daughter and family here, has I've said, and son and family coming to see them this afternoon. I need more supplies. Going to supermarket.

The Supernatural

Last resort perhaps?

There were ghosts or mixes up of time or whatever in the old farmhouse we moved to when I was 11. My mother, my sister, my friend and my niece all heard or saw a young woman and/or an older woman. When I saw the young one when I was 17, I called her thinking she was my sister, she had long brown hair, she sort of faded away. I had come back from the town with my boyfriend and she was in the porch, he saw her too.

Don't blame you Hosta. I would be upset too.

I always thought we were a close family but since I've been in France no one ever writes to me and it's always me who phones and sends birthday cards. I go to see them, they never come here. 3 brothers and a sister. Brother I was closest to died a long time ago, cancer. SIL, sister of husband No 1 (died '98), writes and rings more often.

Good morning Marion. You look lovely and smiley.

I have daughter, SIL and 2 grandchildren here. They are moving house, will be a lot nearer me. Moving in on Wednesday, but have moved out of old house.

Morning all. Been busy with daughter and family, lots of chatting.

Wondered where you were, Womble.

Favourite native mammal?

Can't say that bats are my favourites. This house was full of them when we moved here as it hadn't been lived in for 6 years. They are quite messy, pooing and weeing from the ceiling! Thank God most have moved to the garage now. Wasn't a garage at first, we built it. But often my car's windscreen needs washing before driving.

Good heavens, I wouldn't get that far, I would have been  before the end of the first bottle.

Haven't been to Galway. Been to Dingle and Wicklow. I hope you have a lovely time Liri.

It's my birthday

Mine is the 16th, Verdun. Parents lived on a houseboat on the Thames so I was born near my grandparents, Ipswich. They had to sell the boat in case I fell in the river!
