Morning peeps 

Great photo Joyce - thats my kind of beach πŸ–.  Glad you had a good break Lizzie - looks a very pretty place.  Welcome back LilyP - you are so right that happy chicklets make a happy Chick......hope your London lot find a new place, with supportive neighbours, really soon.

Another mad week at work in prospect - but by Thursday the panic will be over and I will be able to breathe........ and then I will really start my countdown to Oz

Happy Birthday Fairy πŸŽ‚. Hope the fairylets spoil you when they get home   Today is also our wedding anniversary, so I will remember your birthday from now on 

Back from Brum - had a lovely couple of days. Made me happy to see littlest Chicklet so happy 

So many beautiful buildings there - old and new.

Morning all 

Great to see littlest Chicklet, who is on fine form .  Went for an amazing Indian meal last night - wonderful reasturant in the Jewelry quarter.  Then went for a wander round the city centre to walk our dinner off.  Don’t know Birmingham at all, so it was nice to explore.  Liked what I saw   Today we are heading back in to town, and will visit the Library ~ was inspired by your pictures earlier in the year LG

But first, the quest for breakfast begins 🍳πŸ₯“πŸ₯žπŸžβ˜•οΈ

 Yum - love home picked pears   Sadly ours were all nipped in the bud by that late frost this year ❄️❄️❄️

Very excited about our trip to see littlest Chicklet   Setting off soon πŸš—πŸš•πŸš™

Hope your back is comfortable enough to let you make the trip to Wonky’s Dove.  And hope Liri has made it safely to Galway too.  And that LilyP is having fun helping out in London.  And that Dacha enjoys his family in Cheshire .......seems lots of us are on offspring visits wonder there’s no time for chat

Hope Hosta is sleeping now 😴

Just had a mammoth read back - Lizzie, hope you are feeling better and that the insurance and repairs go smoothly - what a nightmare

Went to hear Anne Swithinbank last night - she was great.  Talked all about her favourite plants (lots of which are my favourites too ) ......a few more have been added to my wishlist

Off to Birmingham this weekend to visit littlest Chicklet .....can’t wait .  And 29 more sleeps til πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Enjoy your visits with grandchildren LilyP and Liri - sometimes its the impromptu visits that are the best 

Busy week at work this week.  But we have Anne Swithinbank coming to talk at garden club this week and I am determined not to miss it .....even if I have to go with my laptop in tow 

Hope the swallow is now soaring high again 🌀πŸŒ₯β›…οΈπŸŒ€

Just back from a day in the New Forest with my sisters.  We got Dad down the stairs and out for a bit of  fresh air. Went to Beaulieu and raised a glass of bubbly to Mum, who would have been 80 this Tuesday.  Think she would have approved of our party 🎈 πŸ₯‚ πŸŽ‚

Dad also got back up the stairs afterwards much progress is being made

Never been Liri, but just googled and it looks beautiful 

Had a long lie in  .....its been a busy week.  Grey but not raining so I’m heading out to the garden - I have foxgloves to plant, tomatoes to clear and tenders to get under cover.  Can’t believe its that time of year already 

Great to hear your news DD - what are your plans for the garden?
