I liked Harrods when I was young, they had quite reasonably priced maternity dresses and when daughter was born they had a breast feeding and baby changing room by their buffet restaurant. The only one I'd ever come across in 1976.

Been doing HW, sitting room dusted, polished and vacuumed even behind the furniture. Kitchen wiped down and floor washed, bedroom dusted.


Was cold today, although sunny, didn't really feel like gardening. Woodburner flaming merrily in sitting room.


I agree, get an electrician, but not the last one! Is there Check-a-trade where you are, Clari? You can read reviews.

Yesterday was sunny in Dordogne after a cold start. Felt quite warm in the sun, no coat for gardening.


This morning is colder, -5°, ground is white, sky is blue.

Spent an hour in the veg plot yesterday. Was a mess, haven't looked at it for over a month, except to pick the last tomatoes from the GH last week. Lots more to do. The farmer has cleaned out the field shelter with his tractor and he's scooped up a pile of droppings in the place the horses used as a loo for the last two winters. So now I have a load of black crumbly manure to spread when I've finished weeding.


Then I spent 2 hours in the middle bed. Need to find room for tulips and alliums.

That's sad Logan. But you never know. Tigger lived 18 months longer than the vet said he would. His cancer went into remission. Good luck.

Morning all. -5° here, but sky is blue.


Spent an hour in the veg plot and 2 hours in the middle bed yesterday. Now need to plant tulips and alliums in the middle bed. Saw yesterday that one of the bags of tulips that daughter gave me isn't 10 bulbs but 50, Angelique. Hope there's room!


Welcome LG, pop in when you like, doesn't matter if you forget things - you're not the only one!


OH is coming back from England this afternoon


I saw The Missing last night, gripping to the end. I hope Julian was just under anaesthetic and not dead though. But fiction so doesn't really matter but you get involved all the same.
