Wind has settled now - looking forward to a weekend of gardening.  Meant to be showery - but like Andy, have jobs both inside and out, so should work out fine.

Happy Friday !

Never been much of a one for shoes and handbags - but have finally found my shopping gene when it comes to plants.

OH pointed to a new plant in the garden at the weekend - and asked where it had come from.  I found myself blurting out - "what, that old thing - I've had it years !!"

I'm sure I should be doing that with clothes - not flowers.  Hey, ho ....

I wrote to the website team about the photos a couple of weeks ago.  They wrote back that they knew there was a problem and they are trying to fix it (along with the other site problems).  I keep hoping, as it was good to just be able to click and enlarge.
