Morning all.

Going shopping for Charity Strawberry Tea tomorrow. Sorry DD can't make it after all. Everything seems such a rush at the moment as we are off on Tuesday. I'll just have Sunday and Monday to clear up after the Tea, do Housesitter's room, HW, water everything in garden as heatwave coming, wash, iron and pack etc.

Chicky, I think I'll be in the audience. I'll have to look into those gardens.

DD it won't be just "popping"! Quite complicated with all the flights, hotels etc. Someone posted the choir on Utube and they were invited to sing, Faure's Requiem, together with some other choirs. They will have to practice together when we get there. There will be a Gala dinner too, evening dress. Choir's secretary is arranging a boat trip with dinner too. I'm a little worried by the skyscrapers, I'm really a country bumpkin, might have to escape to sit in Central Park! We'll be there about a week, but as we are flying from Heathrow and staying with relatives a couple of nights first we'll be away about 10 days.

Good news Liri

Lovely day here, 23°. Been cleaning garden furniture for my charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday.

Also went to Supermarket, bought lots of dog food as we are going to New York next week. Housesitter coming. OH's choir has been invited to sing in Carnegie Hall.

OH has been in England, he's now on a train, I must go and pick him up soon.
