Fairy - love your Glen Miller story (i played the clarinet too in my yoof - not much call for it now) - funny how every now and then you hear something that knocks you for six ((hugs))

Biology exam went well (yippee) - just hav chemistry (tues) and physics (thurs) to get through and then we can all breath again

Dove - can't drink pernod - overindulged about 30 years ago and even the smell still turns my stomach .  But hope friend arrived safely.

great looking potatoes KEF - hope they tasted as good as they looked.

springwatch episode 3 now watched (i am way behind) and now a bit of Monty....

MrsG - all looking wonderful - glad to see your alliums (your signature plant in my mind) are performing well

Lesley - hope you dry out soon - those borders are looking beautiful in spite of the rain.  

Matt - maybe the sun'll come out tomorrow ....

Welcome back Stacey - so glad you had a fab time - hang on to that relaxed feeling as long as you can  And also glad that wild swan not only survived, but flourished in your absence.

mrsG - good luck with new career beginnings - very brave, but absolutely right thing to do if your current one has lost its sparkle.... Go girl

Hope Lizzie is not in the grips of Garden Party panic  .... and that Doves house is now ready for visitors.

littlest chicklet has biology gcse exam tomorrow morning.  We all feel a bit sick.  Jokes from Verdun, Steve or Fairy most welcome to lighten the mood

But One D at Wembley Stadium to look forward to (?&?&?) on Sunday .... wish me luck .... someone has to do the chaperone thing

Morning Dove and Fairy

Fairy - this site has really made me aware of the differing seasons across the country - what with Verdun at one extreme and you at the other ...... all my daffs were finished by the end of April this year
