I wonder if I've enough things in the cupboard to make scones... diet starts tomorrow!

Morning off. I have today off work as I had to book it as holiday because the rota for this week didn't come out til Saturday and we've British gas coming to fit a new meter so I couldn't tell when my day off would be.

Yesterday I picked all the blackberries at his lordships request ... he then proceeds to tell me he doesn't like blackberries  I'm making blackberry sauce for going over ice cream as I know that will freeze well. Any other suggestions? I was planning on leaving them for the birds!

We also got rid of the awful hawthorn bush thing of spiky hell yesterday. Been meaning to do it since we moved in  Now I can make a bigger effort in tidying up that area to open up around the pear tree. His lordship did snap my fork helping, at least that's my Christmas present sorted.

Chicky enjoy your short week! Russia sounds exciting.

Steve did you use an app or programme for your 5k? I gave up on the app I used as it didn't adjust to my stride meaning it kept telling me to slow down when I was just walking. Felt like I was going backwards.

Spotted this fizzy creature on the wheelie bin. Didn't think it quite a home so it's now been relocated.

Actually today I've found no end of caterpillars. Non quite as striking though.

I'm 5 foot 4 in on a good day, hardly tiny, once concidered average height.

So how come all my jeans are too long, some that are supposidly short are two inches too long!

And why can you only buy mens shirts in plain, striped or check?

See original post

 Because I'm 5ft 9 in and considered average height too?

Morning all. Forgot to turn the alarm off so laying in bed waiting for his lordship to realise I need tea.

I have scrubbed some places, vacuumed others, done the big shop, stressed about finding the right gift for someone who hates gifts, and am back laying on the bed trying to decide what to wear tonight when we all go out for a meal. I've been putting off buying new clothes for a few years now. The wardrobe is getting desperate! It's currently a toss up between jeans and the shirt or rather loud purple ball gown.

Anyone for a mug of tea?
