Hello folks - the garden and terrace have been tidied up a bit ready for our visitors tomorrow - some of the bigger-leaved plants on the Shady Bank were flagging a bit, so it's all had a good soaking this evening - got to have it looking lush tomorrow - last time my son's MIL saw this garden it was covered in ancient ivy!
We BBQd some pork steaks with a maple syrup glaze and had them with bruschetta and salad this evening, then BBQd bananas with Thunder & Lightening. Just another practice for the big event tomorrow. Mr Roots is marinading some chicken in my kitchen, there is meringue in the oven, freshly made mayo in the fridge and ice in the freezer and lots of drinks in the garage fridge, including non-alcoholic Mohitos and posh ginger beers and lemonades for the drivers.
Now I'm sitting on the sofa with a cooling Campari and soda - the rest can be done tomorrw morning
