HELLO FORKERS!

I'd like to watch the tennis Fairy, but they have made such a hash of the highlights programme that I can't bear it, and I'm not around in the day to watch it live.  mr Chicky caught the Nadal match though, and said it was brilliant to watch.

not a drop of rain here, so will be heading out with the hosepipe later.  Off to Hampton court tomorrow, think theres a chance we might melt

Hope you got back to sleep ok Lesley.

i always find getting to the end of this thread a bit tricky when its on a page that ends in an "0".   But it never comes to an end, just requires a bit of ingenuity

Rain still forecast for later, but I am office bound today. The garden could certainly do with it.  Not sure how all you people that move plants around lots cope in the summer - the 3 i have moved this year looked very sad by yesterday evening (although have perked up after the bucket of water last night).  Do you have to water lots?

Not thatched, just tin (hot tin today - will need to find a cat from somewhere to complete the picture).  Came so far because we couldn't find a local roofer who would even answer a phone, or return an email, never mind give us a quote .....job too small.

blueberries ready when they are blue/black all over - i find the last bit to ripen is the bit where the stalk joins.  Ours have been fab this year - were in pots for the last three years and then liberated into the ground this spring.  Fantastic autumn colours too

Verdun - just make sure you use that money to help the vulnerable and disadvantaged......and don't fritter it away on doughnuts

Meant to be scorching here today, but at the moment there is a strong wind ....strange, those two things don't normally go together.  Having a new garage roof put in today - guys arrived at 6.30, having set off at 3am from Yorkshire.  Think that deserved a cuppa and a bacon butty, don't you  Wanted to offer them freshly picked blueberries, but OH convinced me that was a mad plan .... so I'm about to eat them myself

Wardrobe malfunctions always make me smile....but in the garden takes it to a whole new level.  Have decided to turn off my laptop early and head for the hammock.  But have just seen Hampton Court coverage is on the box tonight at 9.30 .....so thought I'd let anyone who's interested know
