Good luck and best wishes for Chicklet.

Raining here. Not gloating are you, Hosta?

Did you have a nice day after that sky, Glenys?

Morning all. Slept heaps better, despite rib. Coughing much less.

Hello Paula, great cake. My son 1 and his wife are expecting a baby girl (3rd girl) in May and Son 2 and wife are expecting their 3rd in may too. But they want a surprise, they have 2 boys. They will be my grandchildren 10 and 11. Is this your 1st or have you others?

Glad you're having a good weekend with Charlie, DD.

We had a good lunch in a Suffolk village restaurant. But I seem to have hurt a rib when coughing, probably in the night. Went for a short walk after lunch, sunny but icy little wind.

Watched Big Dreams Small Spaces when we got back.

Watched it earlier this  evening. Well done, two great gardens.

Only one thing I didn't like and that was the final photography when the camera whizzes round at all angles, too fast to see anything properly and not giving a good overall view.

Luckily OH hates them too and I hate needles and anything that might hurt! Dreading the dentist next week, even if he is my son.

Afraid I thought yuk where did you drag him up from LB?  Rather have Mr Darcy any day. Found the tattooed chap though.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin_Diesel   I'm afraid I'm not a tattoo fan and I quite like some hairs on the male chest. Vive la difference!

If people had been flooded I expect the sea defences people would have been blamed, sounds no win situation for them.

The M&S beef stew was surprisingly good, tasty and no fatty bits.

It's sunny today and I'm feeling much better than a few days ago so OH says he's booked a table somewhere nice for lunch. Then we'll share the crab I bought in the market for a light supper, it's only a small one.

Lovely surprise in the post this morning. A friend I met originally on this forum a few years ago has sent me some packets of seeds, including Ammi Visnaga and Tithonia that I couldn't get in France.

Morning all. Having coffee in bed, OH has just brought it up. More coughing at 1.30am, but stayed in bed, not so bad this time. Sun shining through the window.

Hope Fairygirl is OK in those snowy mountains.

Look after yourself, Clari.

I'd rather just have the pole, may come in handy one day. How many things can you use it for? Washing? Beans? Fishing something out of the pond? Wardrobe rail? He's too muscly and oily for me.

How could you say that, Lantana?  When he's in Poldark he has masses of character in his face! Haven't you seen those long narrowed eyes? And what about the body

I have OH though, and an M&S ready meal beef stew for dinner tonight with a bottle of red plonk so I'll make do with that  or there won't be enough RB's pie to go round.
