Raisingirl ... you have my sympathy ... what's keeping me sane?  Don't think anything is ... can't you tell  

Tennis on the telly has been a godsend ... plus knitting and recorded programmes about Japan and some repeats of Rick Stein travelling through France on a boat ... 

There's room on the sofa here ....... you're welcome to join me 

oh, coffee for me please ... I'd better not have a biscuit .... unless you insist .......

Good morning folks 

First date ... I was 15 he was 17 .... he looked like Paul Jones ... my parents approved of him .... he said he'd take me to see the Tremeloes .... his car broke down and we had to push it for miles along country lanes to a phone box then his father came and got us and took me home and I never saw the Tremeloes ... he never rang ... I wanted to ring him but nice girls didn't in those days  ....  10 years later both of us were married and part of the same social circle ... he said he had wanted to ring ... but he was scared of Ma 

Hope all is straightforward today Pansy

Good morning all   I woke really early this morning ... there was sunshine and blue sky and it was very still and beautiful ... felt like summer again ... 

Clari ... I can only think he likes talking to himself ... we're obviously not intelligent or educated enough for him.

Willows really need a lot of moisture ... we had a dry winter and spring and your tree is close enough to your shed to be in a rain shadow,  and I suspect the apple tree may be more established and is therefore getting first dibs on any moisture that's going in that area.

I would have been giving that a bucket full of water at least  twice a week from early March onwards, and more in the recent hot dry spell
