Only just noticed this - if I'm not away that week, then would love to come.  Not quite sure of our summer plans yet, but fingers crossed I can make it work somehow

On the first train of the day πŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚

Coffee in hand, settling down with my magazine, looking forward to seeing  Chicklet.  Hard to believe that 20 years have gone by since she first swept on to the scene - a drama queen πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ right from the very first (unexpectedly upside down, so a swift trip to the operating theatre required ).   Cake will be consumed in her honour πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

Hang on in there LG - this last bit will be tricky, but every day is one day closer to not having to worry about it any more.

looking forward to pics of the Acer Glade Hosta 🍁🍁🍁

Enjoyed Monty and GW.......the grasses, heleniums, climbers all made me lick my lips at the summer to come. 

And not missed much of the rugby either

 That reminds me of my Nana - always one for a bargain.  Her and her friend came back from a shopping trip with brightly coloured plastic T-shaped "things" each, because they were only a pound.  Turns out they were the things to scrape ice off a car windscreen......and neither lady drove, or had ever had a car in their lives 

Giggling uncontrollably here at the "working from home" link and the amazon reviews......both priceless
