How sweet of you to understand Lants. I did have watermelon as well as the young waiter told me it was ready, but there are no calories in watermelon and it makes you feel bloated, no, I mean nicely full.

I am far too vain to wear shorts  After having had 4 children my tummy is the opposite of flat. I wear an old summer dress to garden in when it's hot. I am also too cowardly to wax my legs, ouch, I run a razor over them when I'm in the shower. I am too well endowed up top to go bra less. Dove made me laugh , but I don't think I'm quite at that stage yet!

Been shopping. Had lunch at the Wok place. I wanted fruit for pud as I'm trying to make an effort, having gained 4lbs when we were in England. But no water melon left, so while they were cutting it up I helped myself to profiteroles and chocolate sauce  They shouldn't have left them next to the empty watermelon bowl.

Morning all. Looks like being a hot sunny day.

We are off to the supermarket. Wonder if they have Mivis, haven't seen them for years. But we can't buy ice cream today as we are going to the Chinese buffet place for lunch. I call it the Wok place as they have lots of raw meat, fish and veg that you choose and they cook it for you in a Wok with the sauce of your choice.

Forestedge, I've used 5 year old bean seeds and they've germinated, it must have been the watering.

I was disappointed with the judges decisions at Chelsea. My 2 favourites, Chris Beardshaw and the Covent Garden one got silver gilt and silver. The ones I really didn't like got gold. But then I only saw them on TV and not in real life. But I noted that Monty asked James Alexander Sinclair if the judges thought that real gardens like Chris's had gone out of fashion and even Joe Swift thought it would have got gold.

Here are my May flowers, better late than never! There are Sweet Williams that hardly show and several violas behind the Etoile Violette clematis which is hiding them. This time of year everything seems to be blue, pink and purple.

It's just awful, don't know what to say. I hope no more die among the injured.
