Morning all - been ferdiddling down all night - meant to clear up later, so might get some weeding/clearing/planting done after all.

Birmingham was a success - just Cardiff to go next weekend and then our grand tour of the country is complete and littlest Chicklets application form can be submitted.  Feels like we have covered many miles of train track

Just catching up......wonderful sunrise picture Fairy and great news on embryonic tearoom DD.  Went on a camping holiday to les sables d'ollonne when I was about 14 Ob ....I remember those sands (plus, are there natural salt pans somewhere near, or am I mixing up my holiday memories?).  Enjoy the relly-visit GW.

Work is mad busy at the moment - not leaving time for much else.  Best get going .....

Happy first anniversary to Mr&Mrs Fidget🍾🍸🍾🍸🍾

Trouble with working on a Sunday is that you don't really feel like the weekend happened.  Onwards and upwards, in the words of the grumpy GQT man

I read Wild Swans about 25 years ago, and it still chills me to think about it. Magnificent book, but made me realised how blessed I was to have been born when and where I was.  

No gardening for me today.  Had to work this morning, and when I finally finished I couldn't summon the energy to get out there after all. Watched 3 back to back Poldarks instead ....nearly caught up now
