Haven't been able to join in today as OH put my Tomtom on my laptop to update and it took hours and hours.

We tried out that new restaurant for lunch, quite simple, but nice, 13€ for 3 courses, about £10.

Haven't done anything I meant to today, felt tired, although the weather has been agreeably cooler. Slept through "Escape to the Country".

I once had a cheesecloth smocked top and velvet flares.

RB, that blue sandwich made me laugh.

Super photos Sheps and Nut.

I'm just a happysnapper so my photos are more likely to be on garden photo threads. But here is a rose from a garden that I visited with my daughter and the view from a bedroom window in my daughter's new house, just because I think they are pretty.

Morning all. I'm glad it's cloudy and cooler today. Was 30° yesterday, saps my energy.

Going to try a new restaurant for lunch, a friend is coming with us. Another friend recommended it.

First time I've watched a tennis match from beginning to end for years! Was gripped  Although it was only 3 sets I think Milos played well and is one to watch out for. Well done Andy!

Just been watching a film called "The Help" about black maids in the USA in the 60s. Was gripped by that too.

Been very hot today, not gardening weather, except for watering, but dried 2 loads of washing.

Thank you, it's a lovely garden. We went there a few years ago but earlier in the year, good to see it a bit later.

No Flumpy, we can't do anything about it, but I've already lost over 100€ from my pension this month (exchange rate) because of it  I just hope it all gets sorted out and the 3 million ex-pats don't get their pensions frozen or find themselves with out health care, or travelling back and forth to the UK to see family and friends more complicated and expensive.

Morning all. Looks as though it will be hot, 22° already. Probably won't do gardening. May clean windows, did some yesterday, long overdue.
