Thought it was me (ex-nurse), puncdoc, lecturing you about alcohol!

So true, Mrs. Garden. I look even when I don't say anything.

Wondered who Orchid Lady was, 1500 posts and I'd never met her! Hi Tracey!

But who is rosemummy? Am I being dense? Must have met her after 221 posts.

Puncdoc (I'm sure you know already) a125ml glass of red wine has 85 calories. I can't preach because I have wine every evening! But would also like to be lighter.

I was hoping for an early start this morning before the arrival of the heavy rain that is forecast. OH didn't come to bed until after 1am. Why are men so noisy? Or is it just him? So woke at 9am, had 1 sip of coffee and friend rang, spent an hour nattering. Now it's 11.30am and clouds are getting black. Bother.

I get them from a farm supplies shop. I use them for storing my big hay bales on to stop damp getting into the hay from below.

That's it, lily! I just needed reminding. Sometimes my brain is like a dark cupboard. I grope about for something in it that I can't find!

I'm not missing any teeth either, first OH was a dentist, son is a dentist.

Printed recipe for Dove's cake and there was another for rhubarb and ginger cheesecake so printed that too. OH loves rhubarb and ginger.

Sowed some carrots, covered them with fleece. Not done much except lots of ironing, including 2 kingsize duvet covers, felt tired all day.

 The pink ones are a very early flowering prunus shrub, but I've forgotten the name. The white ones are my Napoleon cherry tree, would have been better against a blue sky, which was, unfortunately, not available!

 The yellow flowers are epimedium, but this text may not appear in the right place!

 First tulips are coming out.

Good morning all. Started sunny 5°, clouds coming. Poured over the weekend, but garden did need watering.

Waiting for man to come and mend the pool pump, an hour late so far, but the French are always late. More expense
