Back from Nottingham.  Chicklets new house is lovely .....even has a bit of a garden.  Previous inhabitants must have left a bike behind when they left in June looks like something from sleeping beauty's castle:

Morning all

Fine here now - we had our months quota of rain on Thursday night/Friday morning.

Driving to Nottingham later to take Chicklet back to Uni.  Its been lovely having her back home for the whole summer.  This year she is in a house, rented with 6 friends - only seen it from the outside, so look forward to helping her get settled in a new room.  Going up this pm and driving back tomorrow - so the garden will just have to survive without me for another weekend.  Looking quite good out there though.....lots of yellow and purpleπŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒ»

Glad to hear KEF is ok - hope she pops back in soon.  And Panda, if wedding prep allows.

Another week and it'll be too dark to pick raspberries in the morning Getting a bit challenging even now

Littlest Chicklet is back at college now, so my mornings are back to a regimented timetable as the train won't wait for herπŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚

Garden talk tonight - Rosy Hardy ......looking forward to it very muchly

Back home now from a truly wonderful trip Can't resist one last postcard, of the most bonkers church I have ever seen, and its interior, which had every inch covered in mosaics

Trip home was good - always seems very strange that you can spend a morning running round foreign streets and climbing cathdral steps (worth it for the view) and still be home in time to water the GH before the sun goes down.

And now ......gotta go to work

Have only done a skimread catch up - Big hugs for those who need them (())
