HIS lordship appears to have a very bad cold. Were it not JUNE I'd go so far as to suggest it might be flu. I'm upping my vitamins and trying to disinfect everything. Looks like tomorrow (Day off; yay!) will be spent scrubbing. I need to get out into the garden and pot up a few things although lack of suitable homes might be an issue.

Ob You've just reminded me I forgot to harvest my strawberries this evening. The blackbirds seem to think them their personal buffet.

Morning all. Been working at an event all weekend; am now over tired, sunburnt (despite many applications of cream) and soooo regretting booking a school visiting to the museum today!

Still I did get to do this with our fire engine.

Going to do my best to read back but hugs and hi fives to all that deserve them.

Morning all. A few more hours sleep would be nice. I think perhaps another doctors visit is due. If I start trying now I might get an appointment by August. It scares me to think how strained the GP services are.

Don't forget to vote if you're eligible.

Evening all.

The washing machine is STILL working hard for a living. I think I have about three or four washes left.

How the devil you cope when you have children I have no idea! This is two people and a spoilt dog.

Dove; I have a Swiss chard that I thought had died in its pot. It was discarded on a heap of earth.

This year it reappeared and is now over 6ft tall. SIX ROMAN FEET. I felt too guilty after thinking it dead to harvest it. I'm hoping I can harvest seeds from it?
