Ooo Runny - sounds a nightmare - hope you are feeling calmer soon.  What a dreadful thing to happen.

Just heard that Mrs Gove reacted to the turmoil of last Friday by telling hubby "you were only meant to blow the bl&&dy doors off".  Good to realise that some were in the mood for jokes whilst the rest if us were looking on in horror as the events unfolded (many brexiteers included)

Sitting amongst the roses (beats an afternoon in the office) wondering if I have gone to sleep and woken up in House of Cards

Ooo - its come out topsy turvy .....maybe its Wonderland I'm in instead.  Will keep an eye out for the Hatter and the hare

So sad to hear about your horse Lizzie. Beautiful creatures with such personalities - such a shame.  

Just checked the weather forecast, and it is supposed to be fine, so I am taking the afternoon off from work to re-visit Waterperry.  Hopefully their long border will be in its full glory - will let you know

Dad is doing fine thanks - waiting for his broken foot to heal, but no mini-stroke after effects.  He is now back in his own home, with lots of friends popping round to help him.  He did his first ever online grocery shop yesterday

((Hugs)) DD - you are making progress every day, and hopefully will soon turn the corner so that each day seems a little better, rather than a llttle worse.  We're all rooting for you though - keep strong

GW Magazine - crazy amount of advertising

Its funny, but I don't notice adverts - my brain must have trained itself to filter them out, and I just flick straight past them.  I haven't noticed the content in GW mag reducing at all - so maybe it just has more pages now

Slugs and snails seem to be having a field day out there  The nightly patrols will have to step up to protect my poor rudbeckias.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Oh Fidget  I wish

have, however, been very pleased with my beaujolais - but not sure of my chances of getting it through a winter.  It has been flowering for ages though, with many more buds still to come - so definitely good value if only for a season.  Time will tell
