I saw you're in Newhaven, Bev. We arrive on the Dieppe Newhaven ferry nearly everytime we go to England as family and friends mostly in Surrey and Sussex.

 Look at their little smiley faces!

Pansies, violas, bellis daisies, primroses, see what they have in the Garden Centre or supermarket that's in flower now. I like violas best. Then end of May replace with summer bedding, such as petunias, lobelia, verbena, pelagoniums etc. If it sounds expensive think that it's much much cheaper that buying a bunch of flowers every week.

Hello Bettina. St. Ives is so beautiful, but I haven't been there for years. Went to the south coast last time. It's grey and -2° in non-sunny (at the moment!) Dordogne. They say it will be warmer at the weekend. But it's not snowing. Last week they said it would snow today.

Grey but no frost. -2°. Put horses rugs on last night. They were, except Hannah (my retired one) all plastered with dried on mud from rolling. Took ages grooming, nose full of mud, ugh! I have 2 my retired one and my rideable one (Lena). My daughter has 2, her retired one (25) and Hannah's daughter, Radia. Where we live there is so much space and keeping a horse isn't the expensive luxury that it is in England. My dog costs as much as 2 horses to feed. A friend (trained) trims their feet. Only Lena is shod. So it's as though I have 3 dogs! But they aren't allowed indoors!

I was wondering why they were able to carry on so long! Men are funny things, but I like them

Went food shopping. Supermarket was having a gardening week, had 2 golden raspberry plants left, had to have them before someone else did - under £5 each, £8 in GC. They had winter honeysuckle and variegated hebes for about £3.40 each, they are about £10 in GC. Got 1 of each.Then they had large decorative pots for under a fiver and potting compost on special offer (a known brand that used to be my favourite, but too pricey in GC). Then there were baby lettuce plants and parsley. So by the time the trolley was loaded with that lot there wasn't much room left for food!!  Poor OH, there's always the freezer. But there was also a special offer on salmon fillets so managed to squeeze one in too.

I'll add my twopennyworth! I do the same as Ben and rinse the kitchen compost bin with water from the waterbut and tip that on the compost heap. It can get a bit smelly here in summer when it's 30° so then the kitchen bin goes outside (in the shade!) and I just use a smaller bowl that I empty daily into the kitchen bin.

I think smileys are very useful for softening things you say and adding a touch of humour.
