Hello all who've arrived since I popped in.  

Washing in machine as we're promised a dry day ... next job is to sort out the airing cupboard   then I shall go to Dunelm ... we need some more cushion pads ... these are getting a bit flat and if more sofa naps are likely to happen we need to be comfy ...

I've just spoken to Wonky ... her hand is certainly much improved. and she said her boss was very understanding and has told her to keep her informed about how her hands are and what affects them.  She has a short week this week as it is her SiL's funeral on Friday.  

Can someone identify the shrub

It has a lot of similarities to Etoile d'Hollande  ... but there are quite a few that look like that ... and yours looks to have strong stems and holds the blooms erect whereas Etoile d'Hollande is known for being weak necked.
