Afternoon all!

Had to go (because I'm such a loving partner) to Meadowhell to look for a black leather belt for him to get for his father's day...

An hour of searching and sending him photos later he decides he liked the FIRST ONE BEST.

To top it off M&S don't even sell gluten free cake in that store so I couldn't even get a reward.

Now having a break between ironing and cleaning to rest and enjoy my day off.

Morning all. The hound and I have had a long walk (3 miles but felt long in this heat) and now we're starting a marathon washing session. So I will *technically* be in the garden... sort of.

No sign of the building work starting which means no sign of when I can start my grand redesign on the garden. :(

Drink plenty of fluids today!!

Oh Linda how scary! I hope he's not causing too much trouble for the nurses tonight. Keep yourself safe.

Sweet dreams all; yesterday's long day is showing!

Thank you Victoria. I didn't know that there was a softer variety I thought they all had the sharp serrated leafs!

My lord Pat you drew those yourself?? I thought they were some famous artist you were looking at. They're seriously impressive I love the detailing! 

5 mile walk with the hound done so he'll be happy now. Just need to get the marathon washing session done and try to go shopping. I shall leave the cutting lawn until tomorrow as I already feel like I could fall over!

Rats :(

I had rats in the compost bin at my previous address: left the hose in there for a thorough soaking and they soon moved on.

Lilly; the paintings are fine it's the manikins around the building that disturb me when I set up camp! Not one has a nice face!

Star: wow what a ride!

Morning all from my wonderful camp bed in the classroom. I'm being stared at by eight firefighters; thank goodness they're paintings!

Hosta: what a shame you struggle with photos now. For me uploading has never been better!

Just waiting for the day shift to arrive and then I get to go home.

To prove a point my friend with her very newborn posted just now that they managed four hours sleep. I managed 4.5! So I definitely do sleep better than a mother! :)

I'm in Yorkshire. At least when it rains we can claim it proper Yorkshire water and thus better than ordinary rain. ;)

One hour remaining. 

Pat I sleep better and longer than a parent with a new born so I consider myself lucky!
