I had to go into Derby and be photographed and identified(passport, driving licence NI no and recent utility bill). This is so I can use a smart card in the computer at various places of work.100 yards down the road I noticed by wing mirror seemed wrong. I leaned out and it fell into my hand. As I was already late, I had to travel down the A52 without a wing mirror. Pretty scary (and also illegal as the man in the garage told me).
Anyway, clutching my new smart card, I called in at the garage. The man behind reception got some glue out and stuck it back on. Apparently this is happening a lot with the hot weather. Built in obsolescence. As I bought the car from them, they didnt charge me ,so I went on my merry way to Morrisons. New solero mojito(with 0.5% rum). I'm supposed to ask your age says the lady behind the till. As I rolled my eyes at her, she thought better of it.
I have posted seeds off to Orchid lady and Star Gaze lily.
I said hello to new neighbour in the renovated gate house next door, saw that the rose cuttings and foxglove seeds I geurilla gardened for him were growing nicely.
I found him some more plants for him to grow....every little helps.
Stuff in the garden is wilting. I may just sit under the brolly and give the garden a good looking at this afternoon. Too hot to do much.
