Hey Gg - good to see you're keeping busy (do you ever stop??). Primrose blue jean sounds pretty. Enjoy Hilliers tomorrow - will you get chance to peek at the gardens too? The leaves will be starting to turn and they always put on a fabulous display there.

Evening all - quick hello then off to sleep. Had an evening of pilates - so feeling suitably stretched.

WHEN DID IT ALL start for you .... ..... .... . . . ..

Window boxes in a London flat - then our own garden but two babies and very little time for anything else, but GW on a Friday was my favourite TV of the week (just missed Geoff h - Mr T had just started). Then the babies got older and i gradually had more time to myself - and i just love any excuse to be outside. And a border billowing with flowers is one of my favourite sights....

something in the air

WB - we will miss you if you go - please don't. It will take a couple of days and then everything will return to normal happiness. Maybe have a weeks holiday and come back and see us then?

Yum - an early bday cake for me and fairy - and with maltesers - heaven

Sorry Fairy - jumped the gun with my wishes - will repeat tomorrow, with instrumental backing.

I have another week to go - but it is 19th wedding anniversary tomorrow, so will be celebrating too....

No ideas yet on Bday plant - but will have fun this week doing some mental shopping !

Never been to Russia myself - so will be interested to hear.  Would love to go to Moscow and StP, but never really considered the rest.  Studying Russian history was always my favourite - all those Tsar's and revolutions.  Chicklet has just started herself, and I have been digging out all my "must read" books on the subject (she is delighted - not)

Morning  Dove  and Brum.  Pitch black, so can't even give a weather report.  Countdown really on now Dove!  When is the great Russian adventure??

I have a bday coming up soon (shhh, its a secret) and Dad has said he will take me to a Garden Centre and let me choose !!  So I must start thinking which section I want to head for.  I like plants that come in to my garden like that - good associations.

Anyway - time to scrub up and face the world.  Onwards and upwards .....

No cake here - no gardening either. Only good thing about a rainy weekend is that i got to the bottom of my ironing pile for the first time since June. OH has decided he needs to set an early alarm for tomorrow - its the first time for so long that he has a choice of work shirts he is worried he will be overwhelmed

One day slightly grubby won't hurt her Stacey - relax!  My parents were brought up on one bath a week ( and that was a tub in the kitchen in front of the fire - and i am not that old .....)
