The pressure has been up and down all day meaning I've been migraining all day too. Nothing seems to cut through a pressure headache now I can't have rum and coke!

I do love a good thunderstorm but really must insist either it comes or goes. Not keep nipping back like its not convinced it locked the door!

Another 'interesting' Daily Mail must be true!!

I have enough trouble convincing my partner to take an aspirin when he's a headache at least tomato plants wont want it crushing up in a jam sandwich.

Pizza was a success KEF! I don't think you'd know it was gluten free unless you were told. Partner certainly put his away quickly enough! 

Managed to avoid all Eurovision this year, it just seems a waste of money for a sing song.

Lots of baby talk last night! It always amazes me you ever feel your OH grown up enough for children. I still feel like I'm on babysitting duty with him half the time! (How do you even get that much mud into the kitchen?!)

Dove my friend says she was relieved to get out the hospital as soon as was possible here as she had no privacy to bond and she was so scared the baby was going to catch something the ward was so dirty

Been a mixed day here, hurt myself digging the vegetable plot area so am now resting up before working out if I can balance myself in the kitchen to make some pizzas for super - found a new gluten free dough so am keen to try it.

what paint can I use outside - cheap and cheerful

Why not see if Homebase / B&Q / Wilkos do an exterior own brand wood paint to suit your budget? You might not get the exact colour you want but its a possibility.

How much Paint do you actually need? The smaller pots don't seem that expensive.

photo uploads from phone

I agree with uploading from the phone - I'm always out in the garden going " what the dickins is this?!" And "agh what's that doing on my flowers?!" But by the time I've come back in, been sent back out to remove my muddy wellies, found my notepad,  fired up,  bluetoothed the file, got distracted and gone and made a cup of tea while AVG performs another scan...

Not long now Mike, I'm glad you had a good nurse taking your blood - it always seems easier when they get you relaxed.

Are you getting these rain showers we are up North? My wellies are overflowing but I guess that teaches me for leaving them outside! I hope you are so your garden can fend for itself for a while and give you plenty of colours to raise the spirits.

Morning all! Digging out the kayak in a bit to go and open the greenhouse - that was quite the rain storm!

Tomatoes - possibly my second mistake of the year!!!!

I grow Roma, you dont pick out side shoots of those, they were fantastic last year, I still have some in the freezer.

OOh that's useful to know! Thanks for that (I haven't taken any side shoots yet - kept chickening out!)
