I'm back. Had a wonderful time.  We had a room with a view



Sooooo pretty. Found cake, gelato, coffee, prosecco, a beautiful garden and sunshine so all was good with the world.


Will be thinking of you all tomorrow Dove and Wonky Xx

Yummy GWRS.  We had our first home grown asparagus at the weekend ....totally worth the 3 year wait


One of the big advantages of working from home on a nice sunny day is that when you down tools, you can be in the garden within seconds🌞🌞🌞


Sitting here watching the bumblebees filling their boots on the first aquilegias of the season.  Very pleased to see them (the aquilegias as well as the bumbles) because last year we had an attack of aquliegia gall midge that ruined nearly all of them.  Thought t would return, but so far so good, lots of flowers opening up.


Another half an hour here in the sun, and then I must go pack a case.  Panicking a bit now obelixx .....do we have to take our own cake?  It is an essential part of a "sisters" weekend 🍰🍰🍰......maybe gelato could be a substitute🍧🍨🍧🍨


ooooo .....look what I've found πŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•ŠπŸ•Š(in the absence of pinch and enlarge I'd better elaborate that its a Dove)

Just had a play, and they all seem to work - eg I can get to the Howto section, and enter competitions etc

Hi there - just to let you know that I have an iPhone 5s, and my menu button works (ie under Forum it shows Latest posts, New threads, and Followed threads......and they are all clickable).  So its one of those tricky non-universal problems

Why did Chris do that?

Shouldn't he be down in Chelsea, bulding his Gt Ormond Street garden?  Maybe he needed some Thuya cuttings to help decorate it......keep your eyes peeled when the Chelsea coverage comes around

Morning all Later start than normal - working from home today so the commute is not as long


Enjoying having Chicklet home but, due to some bad timing, I am going away for the weekend.  I go away once a year with my sisters (leaving all partners, children and dogs behind at home).  We've been doing it for about 15 years.  This year we are headed to Lake Garda .....never been, but hoping for some stunning scenery......and lots of coffee and cakeπŸ°β˜•οΈπŸ°β˜•οΈ


So play nicely whilst I am gone and I'll see you Tuesday morning.
