Morning all.

I haven't seen the news yet. Sounds horrendous from what you say.

Cloudy, showery, gusts of wind, more storms forecast. I'm very stiff from a day on my knees yesterday, think I'll make up beds instead as daughter 1 with 3 sons are coming for the weekend. They want to see son 2's new baby and new house. We are going to see the new house this afternoon.

Pat, no way are you going to see a photo of my 27yr old muddy, calloused knees!  If you want to see the garden the photos are on the Gallery thread.

Lily P., daughter  2 has my Lena, who seems to have settled down well. I have daughter 2's untrained mare who is the daughter of my first mare who is retired. They are in the summer paddock here, eating grass, going in the shelter when it's hot and cantering about when they need some exercise.

That's good news, Lily P.

I've been gardening most of the day, the bindweed is horrible. Planted several dahlias and other plants in gaps, such as salvia farinacea. Wore a dress as it was hot and muggy, now thunder is rumbling in the distance and it's tipping with rain. Hurray! Off to have a shower, you should see the state of my bare knees!

Morning all.

Easy to do, Chicky. I've done it twice, years ago when I was nursing. One time a nice ambulance driver started the car with his jump leads. Now I have a car that turns it's lights off.

I was a numpty too last night. I left a gas ring on on the hob. Only the smallest one turned low, hard to see in the setting sun shining through the kitchen windows, but normally I check the position of the controls.

We are off to the tip with a trailer load of rubbish. We went yesterday but it was shut, OH looked at the wrong website for opening hours.

Good luck to littlest Chicklet.

Sounds wonderful, Dove!

We are having cod, stuffed tomatoes (breadcrumbs, basil, onion) and asparagus.

Internet and phone were out of action this afternoon. France Telecom say there is a problem and it will be repaired by 14th June at the latest. But it's back now, maybe it will be off again tomorrow.

Been outside planting a veronicastrum and dahlias.

The French Election results of the first round for deputés (MPs) are in. Looks as though the French are still supporting the new President, Emmanuel Macron, the new En Marche! party are doing very well. Second round of voting next Sunday. It's quite amazing really, the usual parties are being voted out by something completely new with no previous MPs.
