Morning peepsπŸŒ„πŸŒ„πŸŒ„

Theatre was great - funny, touching, thought provoking and superbly acted .....can't ask for much more than that

Starting to look forward to the weekend already (well we're half way thru the week, so why not?)......going to Herefordshire with a group of friends on a garden visiting weekend.  Loads planned,will take lots of pics for the other thread.  One I am most looking forward to is the Picton garden with all their asters......should be a good time of year to visit.

But got to get through Thursday and Friday at the saltmines first.  Best get going

Best bit about sowing grass seed is when you've convinced yoursellf it has failed, and then all of a sudden you see that green haze ........

Feeling for Lizzie - hope you find someone to stay with you, or go on a little hols yourself .....maybe visit some of the grandchildren?

Off to the theatre tonight🎭🎭🎭 Going to a tiny theatre where the audience surround the action - makes for quite an intense experience But normally a memorable one.

Too dark to pick raspberries, so raisins on my porridge .......sadness. Can we do summer all over again please

Back from Nottingham.  Chicklets new house is lovely .....even has a bit of a garden.  Previous inhabitants must have left a bike behind when they left in June looks like something from sleeping beauty's castle:

Morning all

Fine here now - we had our months quota of rain on Thursday night/Friday morning.

Driving to Nottingham later to take Chicklet back to Uni.  Its been lovely having her back home for the whole summer.  This year she is in a house, rented with 6 friends - only seen it from the outside, so look forward to helping her get settled in a new room.  Going up this pm and driving back tomorrow - so the garden will just have to survive without me for another weekend.  Looking quite good out there though.....lots of yellow and purpleπŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒ»
