Wow Fairy! Jaunt? Looks like miles, how far did you walk?

Post I wrote earlier seems to have disappeared. Internet has been very slow today, emails almost impossible. In the middle of writing something and laptop tells me I can't be connected.

Exciting day tomorrow obelixx! I hope you've been enjoying your new house even without furniture. Did you have a bed? I hope the essential bathroom items weren't toothbrush, deodorant and loo rolls. Suppose they could be bought though.

Went to supermarket, lunched at the Wok place, watched Escape to the Country. Haven't done much, but am a bit achey after gardening efforts at daughter's.

Condensation on our windows too. Only 3° this morning but the sky is blue.

I think it's frosty in North Scotland, Clari.

Back from daughter's. Must do dinner, fish - it's quick and we'll eat it in front of Strictly.

Morning all.

Sorry you aren't feeling well, Dove, keep warm.

OH has recorded Strictly for me, I hope.

I'll be doing some more weeding for daughter today, just watered the bed to make it easier.

Huge thunderstorm in the night, poured for hours. First real proper soaking rain since June.

Enough is enough

Oh no, not another thread criticising Gardener's World and Monty. I like the programme and the dogs. Can't please all the people all the time, but hands off GW.

Funny how Verdun's garden is so lush when it never rains in his neck of the woods!

The grandsons love their new pets.

I've spent the afternoon raking the earth for daughter's new huge lawn and picking out stones, then weeding a flower bed full of couch grass and cinquefoil. They moved into their new house this summer. It's lovely, SE of Poitiers a big rambly old stone farm house. Cost the same as our tiny cottage in Norfolk.

Oh, a new month, will repeat my post then from September.

Morning all. I'm off to my daughter's. Three young grandsons, buying them 2 rabbits and a guinea pig for their birthdays.

Huge storms in the night, haven't had rain like that since June.

Thank you all for being so comforting about Tigger. Glad he didn't see the storm, he was terrified of them.
