We love them too Steve Wonderful, wonderful bunch
Have a wonderful time in Ireland Liri - and don't go eating into the paracetamol stockpile whilst you are there . Your grandaughters will love having Grandma to themselves for the week. Hope the house move goes smoothly.
Warm but grey here - we're off to pound a few more footpaths. Not liking the look of this week's weather forecast. I have to say we find the forecasts surprisingly accurate these days (even down to which hour the rain swoops in) ....maybe the South East weather is easier to track? However, i am hoping they have got it wrong for Tues/Weds
Nightmare . Hope you start feeling better very soon. Not a great way to spend your birthday, but a memorable one. And how lovely that the peeps in scrubs gave you a rousing birthday chorus
Ooo yes please to pix Tbird. Sounds amazing
Littlest Chicklet enjoyed the new job (sadly, no cake, maybe next week), and finishes at the GC tomorrow. No more weekly trips of temptation for me. Will just have to resist the lure of seriously good coffee instead.
Just checked - it was the PowderMills hotel in Battle. We also went to Sarah Ravens, but that was because we picked the weekend coincide with one of her open days (she has about 4 a year, so you might be lucky).
Yvie - I would second Lizzies recommendations of Pashley and Merriments. Visited them at the end of September, but sure they would be just as gorgeous in May. We stayed in a lovely hotel called something to do with Gunpowder ....possibly Powder Mill - will look it up if you like. It was reasonable, and beautiful and full of character too. If you get a chance to visit Marchant's Hardy plants, I can guarantee you will fill all available space in your boot. We had the most fantastic weekend ....I am well jell
Back from my walk - ankle held up well, except on the rough stony bits (ouch). mr Chicky's rehab is obviously working - he is back to striding well ahead of me. Never did I think the cry of "Come on Chick, keep up" would make me soooooo happy
Earlier than a normal weekend for me - littlest Chicklet got the coffeeshop job and starts today - just about to drop her off.
Then having my eyes tested, and then might head out for a walk, as the ankle is almost completely healed now.
Birds are tweeting away wildly out there ....I'm normally either too early or too late for the dawn chorus at this time of year.....its nice to hear
Glad I'm on this side of the Atlantic, rather than sitting waiting for a blizzard to arrive
One more day til the weekend
Hope the doctor can help you out Pat - sounds as if you're going through the mill again
I think it will be a new face - hence the advert. If they wanted to bring in someone we already know from the TV/radio, they would just approach them directly.
Could be quite exciting
Frosty out there again, but last one for a while here. Drive to work yesterday was beautiful with all the white trees. Windsor Great Park even had some light swirly mists to go with it ....very striking. Even my (yet to be tidied) borders looked a picture with a hoar frost on them. Forecast much warmer for the weekend, so might make a start on said tidying.
