Oh Fidget - what a worry.  Hope he is ok (now and tomorrow).  So scary how life turns on these split second events.  ((Hugs)) for you both.

Not the same do Frit - mine is for legal beagles.....I'm an imposter, as not a lawyer myself 😳.  Obxx - my occitane hand scrub is very much like sugar and olive oil, just much more pricey ....might consider the alternative recipe when this pot runs out. Painted my nails sparkly pink - courtesy of littlest Chicklet ....covers a multitude of sinsπŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»πŸ’…πŸ»

On a train at the moment .....

Working from home today as I have a posh awards dinner to go to in London this evening, and the logistics get complicated.  Time to dig out the little black dress and sparkly heels, and attempt to disguise my gardeners hands and nails.  Hopefully noone will guess that my free time outfit of choice is wellies and dungarees

Happy Birthday Obx - sounds like a lovely day (apart from the kitchen planning bit).  Always great to discover new haunts.

Hope you keep the snivels at bay Clari

Just booked my Chelsea tickets - taken the plunge and gone for an all day ticket this time......can't wait.

Just been reading about an epidemic of asthma attacks in Melbourne, that they think were triggered by a thunderstorm - terrifying

Morning all - hope everyone is safe and dry

Got home eventually, but late for my Garden Club meeting.  Never mind, I think they understood.  Will be glad to be back to my normal drive to work this morning - no more trains til Thursday.

Gorgeous picture Lesley - love it when the frost picks out the branches of the trees like that
