Wired undercup are the only sort that work for me. But I do like a bit of embroidery and/or lace.

Same here with bras, but I usually buy them in England. French bras are tiny. I take a size or two bigger in France and then the cup is too big and the back is too small. I think French ladies must have narrow ribcages. But I feel comfier in a bra, must be better endowed


I have done almost nothing all day, apart from go to the Doc this morning. Feel knackered. Howling gale outside, something just blew across the terrace, probably a plastic chair.

Advice for narcissi/daffodil bulbs needed

My daffodils are more likely to be blind if there was a very dry spell after flowering. Last year there were lots of blind ones, but this year they flowered well as last spring was very wet. I dead head my daffodils, but they are cultivated ones. I'd do as Ladybird said about planting them.

Hello all.


Great news, Lilly P, about the family coming back to live. You will be able to see Baby's childhood. Have a lovely visit from them.


Glad DD sounds more cheerful.


Did quite a bit of gardening yesterday, fingers and knee really achey. Went to the Doc, aging processes , asked about cough too, chest is OK, he's says pollen count is very high, it's all over the car.


Will be voting for French President on Sunday. I've read a lot about the candidates recently and I've chosen, nothing too extreme. I can't vote in England anymore, been here too long. But I would hate to be in TM's shoes. Having to sort out something that she didn't want in the first place and what ever she does there will be those who disapprove. I would hate to have power, can't see the fun in being a politician.

Hello all. Been busy.


Just been to the doc. He thinks the current coughing is because of the high pollen count, chest is OK. Have more HRT as almost run out and more Paracetamol for arthritis. He says it's just the joys of getting older but I'm not ready for a knee replacement yet and they don't replace fingers. He thinks my rib pain from the coughing is more likely due to tearing of the intercostal muscles.


Joyce's dentist sounds like my dentist son, except he has blue eyes.


Glad Runny's cheek is being dealt with. Must hurt a lot.


On to the next flowerbed. Meanwhile dust is accumulating in the bedroom.
