It's my birthday

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 11:53

Are you away on your birthday BL? We're happy to celebrate in your absence anyway! 

Verd - are you having a 'cake countdown' to yours...different one each week perhaps...

No internet earlier so I was out painting on this glorious morning. In for a cuppa - builder's brew for me. 'Nae cat's p***h' as we say here    Punjana - nice and strong, although I could be persuaded with Yorkshire Tea which I had recently when I'd run out and bought that. Very, very good 

BL - they're repeating Monty's Italian Garden prog on Sunday mornings here - don't know if you can get that there, or on i player maybe? You've possibly seen it anyway. Beautiful. Enjoy your trip. Italy's such a glorious place.

The times they are a-changing indeed chick. Someone should write a song about that... 

Loads of trees changing colour here too, but a nice spell of weather to come so it will be great for outdoor work. Nicer to work in when it's a bit cooler, but warm enough to sit. For me anyway.

David - I'm sending you a virtual bouquet love ...

And in a Terry Jones sort of voice  -' you're  a very naughty boy' 

Only left handed socks Verd? I only seem to have left handed hands these days..

The past, present ,future is a pertinent one. I've just bought one of the ceramic poppies from the Tower installation. As I said on Forkers thread, I was lucky - he came back. If he hadn't - my Mum wouldn't have existed.

The past makes us what we are. It's up to us how we use it.

At least the sun was shining Lesley 

Great news about your Mum. The 'own bed' is such an important thing isn't it? 

I'm off to watch the new Scandi noir thriller on BBC 4. It's recording but I'll just try and stay awake to watch it.

Have a good night all. Will catch up tomorrow

Same for me BL with my Dad. Mum died a couple of years before that. That must have been very hard for you being so far away. I was lucky - mine were both in their own house and I was nearby, although Dad died a few days before I was due to move. No long hospital stays or anything like that thankfully, so I'm very grateful they had no horrible experiences like some parents of forum members. 

Sharing it here can be a good thing. I think many of us feel happy to confide in the others here. Lots of good sympathetic people.

Verd - Nighttime arsony behaviour? Not sure I want to know about that either....

I think my brain's gone into meltdown chicky. It's fed up of the living conditions...

Tomorrow is another day though and I will trek back to that famous DIY store to change the latch and get more screws. Hope I don't get some spotty youth when I try to explain why the thing doesn't work though...

Just realised  my arm is quite swollen and stinging a bit. It'll take my mind off all the other aches and pains though. Every cloud...

What's the star in your garden right now

Brilliant Bamboogie! We have to do whatever works for our own plot 

I like the smell of Cimcifugas too Verd, and I agree about the foliage - striking.

Hate hawthorn blossom - I think that smells of cat pee
