......  I'm at a loss what to do now! I can't exactly be planning summer holiday activities and such like when I might not be here!




 Oh I would .. I'd plan lots of things that only you know how to do ... then if you're not there they'll jolly well miss you! 


OH has been a complete star and cleaned the insides of the sitting room windows - that's a job that really hurts my shoulder.  They're absolutely gleaming ... the outsides were done last week so still look good.

Just thinking of those heated hostess trolleys .......... you could use  one as a heated propagator and find some clear plastic lids for the dishes ............. but they probably get just a bit too warm

...  Do I have any other options?

 Don't think so ... I'd get rid of it ... she'll find somewhere else to build.

Thingummie's Contracture - isn't that what Mrs Thatcher had?  http://www.nytimes.com/1986/08/06/world/thatcher-in-hospital-for-hand-operation.html


BL enjoy the car - love my Megane   KEF and I stayed in touch for quite a while, but it seems to have tailed off and I don't want to appear to be hassling her ... she was fine,  I hope she still is ...

Joyce - I remember sitting on the seafront 35 years ago with Ma listening to passers by ... We could tell Mid Suffolk accents from those from North Suffolk.  Not sure if there'd be that much difference now ...

Soils bone dry here MU - I sowed some chard at the weekend - am having to water the seeds every day!   A bit concerning - reminds me of 1976 

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

I eventually ordered mine yesterday - i ordered by phone as I wanted to check ETA because we're going to be away for a few days soon. She said that the helenium should arrive at the end of April. 


Interesting that the Lys. Beaujolais has sold out. 


I treated myself to the actea instead which should arrive soon ... Now where am I going to plant that

I'll be leaving my seedlings unattended for a couple of days this weekend ... It'll be an anxious time ...
