Happy Anniversary Lily 

In the middle of a raging thunderstorm here - lots of flashes, lots of noise and lots of rain.  Forecast says it will have blown through here by early afternoon, so hoping i can get outside to plant up my pots then.

might have to search myself out a heliotrope.

Lizzie - hope your garden party goes well

Fairy - love your Glen Miller story (i played the clarinet too in my yoof - not much call for it now) - funny how every now and then you hear something that knocks you for six ((hugs))

Biology exam went well (yippee) - just hav chemistry (tues) and physics (thurs) to get through and then we can all breath again

Dove - can't drink pernod - overindulged about 30 years ago and even the smell still turns my stomach .  But hope friend arrived safely.

great looking potatoes KEF - hope they tasted as good as they looked.

MrsG - all looking wonderful - glad to see your alliums (your signature plant in my mind) are performing well

Welcome back Stacey - so glad you had a fab time - hang on to that relaxed feeling as long as you can  And also glad that wild swan not only survived, but flourished in your absence.

mrsG - good luck with new career beginnings - very brave, but absolutely right thing to do if your current one has lost its sparkle.... Go girl

Hope Lizzie is not in the grips of Garden Party panic  .... and that Doves house is now ready for visitors.

littlest chicklet has biology gcse exam tomorrow morning.  We all feel a bit sick.  Jokes from Verdun, Steve or Fairy most welcome to lighten the mood

But One D at Wembley Stadium to look forward to (?&?&?) on Sunday .... wish me luck .... someone has to do the chaperone thing
