Good morning Verdun  - absolutely glorious here too   I've had to wake OH up to prepare him for mowing the lawns once the time of day becomes more civilised!

Then we have to plan to re-jig the garden a bit - we need more raised beds to enlarge the veg patch. 

A breakfast of Spicy mumbled eggs (leftover curry and scrambled eggs) will be taken on the terrace - how many am I cooking for and how may coffees and who takes tea?

Small amount of curry and some very good pilau rice left - first come, first served .........
