I've had a mixed morning. I took OH to Birmingham Airport for flight to Toulouse via Paris. He's coming back tomorrow via Amsterdam (don't ask rush job- flight costs more than premium seats to Australia!) Raining heavy in Birmingham , so coming out I got behind a lorry in the wrong lane and missed the M42 and ended up on the M6 toll. That cost me £4 to get off on top of the £1 for 2 minutes drop off at the airport. When I got off I had no idea where I was , so when I found a sign for A38 North, I followed that back to Derby instead. Seeing as I was going past a decent garden centre, I felt it would be a waste of petrol not to go in, so i did. A Miscanthus sinensis gracillimus,a Misc sinensis variegatus, and a Sedum"mr Goodbud" half price, a sedum "bronco"quarter price, a packet of fritillary bulbs half price, and a Large Helleborus shooting star (full price), and a voucher used for £5 total, £28 for the lot. (and another £5 voucher to use if I go back before 24th Dec.) All in big pots, the sedums have plenty of new shoots and will probably split. The hellebore was £15 but has flowers on already and lots to come.
I got the xmas tree decorated yesterday, now I've just got to buy presents for nephew and great nieces and nephews.- and a visit to the post office for a replacement tax disc lost in the post.
