The Queen isn't pompous. She's devoted her life to a difficult job and done it well.

A new baby is new life and new hope, but I agree with AWB. I also agree Andy 19. And I think France could do with a figure head monarch instead of that idiot Hollande, with a Prime minister at the head of government.

Oh dear, DD, but I'm a bit surprised they expected you to wash the jodphurs. If you are riding in a 3 day event you bring more than 1 pair. I used to compete, wore light beige for show jumping and cross country and white or cream for dressage. Dressage is first, then cross country, then show jumping. So she could have worn pale pink for the cross country and the show jumping. I never spent that much on my jodphurs, but they have probably gone up in price since then.

Weather forecast said dry today, but cloudy. So as supermarket was shut yesterday (bank hol) we went this morning. Then the rain started  Wanted to do a lot in the veggie garden.


Anyone done any gardening today?

Have moved horses to summer grazing, they were silly with excitement! Had to do a few electric fence repairs first, got soaked in the rain.

W Womble, I was born in Ipswich, mother's family from East Anglia. I'm taking OH to Suffolk in July to show him places like Southwold where my grand parents lived. We are hoping to meet Dove.

We went to the Wok place for lunch but all the local supermarkets are shut - bank holiday. We'd forgotten. The GC had a sign saying it was open at 2.30 on bank holidays and several cars were waiting in the car park, but at 2.40 everyone gave up and drove off, not a sign of opening.

Matty, it's Saturday next week you are flying to France with me, or do you mean the doc will give an answer on Tuesday?

Have a good gardening day, Marion. No gardening here, raining, but I think I need a break after the last 2 days anyway.
