Littlest chicklet's last parents evening before the GCSEs next summer. They all said very encouraging things. Lovely to see her growing in confidence outside the house - she has never had a problem with us, but finally the rest of the world is getting to see the real her too. Clucking around like a proud mother hen
Matty - be strong, you're a fighter. And we are all right behind you. Sending positive thoughts your way, and many ((hugs)) too.
Steve - what a result
Yuck David - thats a bit of an eyeful first thing in the morning
Not a good nights sleep - rain battering on the roof all night. Do not feel like work at all....but here I go anyway.....
So sorry Matty
Sofa shopping was a disaster - have now established all the things Mr Chicky doesn't like - but none of the things he does.
Hiya OL - sorry to hear things are stressful - planting up your sink sounds a great way to have some downtime. Enjoy your day out Lily
Have a good trip Dove (bet you're long gone by now). Enjoy snuggling with the papers LP. And fairy - you're a dynamo. Hope the mist clears soon KEF - at least no rain for now.
shopping trip today - need a new sofa.
I try to avoid the red hot pokers too
Not today, but I often "sit" on plants - when you plant close together there is no room to bend down
Lots more weeding done - amazing how liquorishy agastaches smell even when they have lost their leaves. Potted up some bareroot sedums, achillea, asters and geraniums to fill some gaps next year. Also decided to plant my alliums in pots - i know i have gaps, but I can't remember where - this way I can slot them in next May.
Time to read some more of my book - a fascinating account of how someone round here recreated a jekyll garden from the original plans. Will visit next summer, but thought I'd learn the story first - bit like reading the book before you go to the movie
