Morning all - Hope Yvie got some sleep in the end

Play was good - laugh out loud, and really made you think .......can't ask for more than that.

Love these light mornings - we must be very close to 12 hours of daylight now

Happy Birthday to Hosta's OH - hope he has a great day 

Play is about 3 people sharing a flat and their trials and tribulations.  Going with two friends who were once my flatmates (about 25 years ago) - so we thought it might be fun !

Theatre in Richmond tonight - but a day working in London first.  Means I have to drive to Richmond and get the tube in from there......which means I'd better get myself going.  Have a good day everyone

Morning all. Late on parade

Had a lovely day with Chicklet yesterday , only slightly marred by getting caught up in train troubles at Waterloo, which meant I got home at 1.30am (instead of 11pm as planned ).  Still, I read a lot of my book (which is, by coincidence, "Girl on a train")

Today I have 200 snowdrops in the green to plant, which I want to colonise under a couple of hazel trees.  Its mizzly out there, but its got to be done.  And more seeds for my propagator too 

Hope GWRS enjoyed his day out at the Emirates (even though the dream ending was not to be ), and that Fairy has found a hill unshrouded in mist.

Only just noticed this - if I'm not away that week, then would love to come.  Not quite sure of our summer plans yet, but fingers crossed I can make it work somehow

On the first train of the day πŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚

Coffee in hand, settling down with my magazine, looking forward to seeing  Chicklet.  Hard to believe that 20 years have gone by since she first swept on to the scene - a drama queen πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ right from the very first (unexpectedly upside down, so a swift trip to the operating theatre required ).   Cake will be consumed in her honour πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

Hang on in there LG - this last bit will be tricky, but every day is one day closer to not having to worry about it any more.

looking forward to pics of the Acer Glade Hosta 🍁🍁🍁

We'll all be rooting for you GWRS .....although I fear if it goes your way it might just finish Mr Wenger off

Enjoyed Monty and GW.......the grasses, heleniums, climbers all made me lick my lips at the summer to come. 

And not missed much of the rugby either 

See original post

 That's exactly wot I said to Mr C
