Today is tulip planting day. Didn't get to the GC yesterday lunchtime (pesky work got in the way ) so have to venture out on a grit hunt first.  Then have to empty the pots of their summer greenery to make room for the tulips ......could be an all day venture this.  Think I need to find my fleece first - its bitter out there.

Poor Mr C is feeling crook - the after effects of Thursdays flu jab

Didn't realise there were so many Today programme listeners (makes my commute almost bearable) ..    Can I just say that Nick Clegg made more sense this morning than I have heard for a long time ..   to coin an old catchphrase, I'm with Nick

Just come in from a very satisfying weeding session. Now me and OH are off for a walk round the punchbowl to admire the autumn colours πŸ‚ . 

Hows the landscaping looking Tbird - is it how it looked in your minds eye ?  Very exciting when transformations take place πŸ˜€
