We have a 42" HD TV bought 6 years ago. The room is quite big so we don't sit very close. Daughter has a TV that you can watch DVDs in 3D, I watched a bit  with special glasses on and it made my eyes ache.

The horse dentist has just been. Daughter's horse wasn't chewing properly, teeth had worn unevenly making sharp bits on the edges which hurt her cheeks. Had them filed down, but she was afraid of the drill so he sedated her. I must keep an eye on her and not put her back with the others until she's perkier.

Have just had a look on line, can only find English ones. I don't think I've ever seen sweet peas growing here, except in my garden and I can't keep them past July, too hot.

Haven't found root trainers for sale in France. Must look on line. Last year my loo rolls completely disintegrated so I've put them in flower pots, 3 to a pot. Uses more compost and I will have to dig bigger holes. I'm trying dwarf one too for the first time.

It's all looking very tidy and promising. You've worked hard. I've hardly started yet!

Having said that above, I should say I have been to Sissinghurst several times in the summer when we lived in Kent before 1985 and it was beautiful.

What is your weather like?

It was quite sunny this morning, but -3° and frosty. Now it's clouding over and there is a chilly wind.

I went to Sissinghurst in April 2013 and felt ripped off. April was really too early so most of it was bare, but I felt I had more out in my own garden. The buildings were shut, except for the sitting room, as they were being decorated. It was more expensive than most gardens open to the public. I felt they should charge less at that time of year or at least allow a discount because of the re-decoration work.

I haven't seen that GW yet as I was babysitting for son. It is recorded.

Guests have gone, lunch went well.

Must clear out the stable. Full of bits of garden equipment, mostly OH's, and my old trays of shrivelled shallots and onions from year before last that I haven't chucked yet. Grew too many that year and shallots were such a bother to peel. The horse dentist is coming tomorrow for daughter's horse who isn't chewing her horse nuts properly so I need a decent safe space in the large loose box.

Oh dear, didn't realise the first one that I practised on before going back to Hosta's post would still be there!
