They couldn't have been the same toys my brother had. He tested them all to destruction.

I have three giant dandelions stuck in the lawn.We had a very interesting couple of hours at Fantasywire . I feel very lucky, the waiting list is now over a year.

Hubby has a scratch on his car. We pulled in to a supermarket in Ashbourne on the way back. A little old lady in a huge car couldnt quite make it into the next bay.  She looked about to burst into tears when I came out with the milk.  He's washed it and examined it and decided he can polish it out. Far too much aggro to bother the insurance company.

If they were down in the pot, as against lying on the surface, I'm tending towards agreeing with swiss sue, jerusalem artichokes, also called sunchokes. You would have to grow  them for a season and see what the shoots, leaves and flowers look like to be sure.

I'm in the orangery at Kew. The rock garden has snowdrops in full flower. Gorgeous weather and not many people here, if it wasn't for a plane coming into Heathrow every minute, it would be idyllic.

Smells.... the dark red rose my mum had that we tried to make scent out of,   the smell of haberdashery and material takes me back to grandmas shop. The smell of  newspapers takes me back to my first job with the pervert boss.  Jasmine reminds me of the time I was offered Jasmine base to smell at Bush Boakes Allen, ..and I said there was something missing. Later he offered Jasmine absolute, and I said that was it. one was £5 a bottle, the other £5000, what can I say, I have expensive tastes.

I've got a confession. I have an encrusted oven. I also have a quote for a new kitchen. Man at b and q  kept saying I have a big kitchen. I need lots of units. I have picked the most expensive range. Really? Quelle surprise.

He kept on telling me that it was going to be expensive. He seemed to be implying I couldn't afford it. He wasn't at all impressed when I said his quote for fitting was ridiculous, my brother is an electrician and qualified gas fitter, and I am getting a quote from Howdens and Magnet.

Hard day at work. Local nutter(not feeling very pc) took up an hour and a half. No touching a rusty drainpipe will not kill you. The glass of SB And half a bottle of western australian cab sav might finish me off. I bought a selection of cheeses at Chatsworth farm shop.  Colston basset stilton v shepherd's purse yorkshire blue v  dovedale blue.  My moneys on the yorkshire blue. Hubby prefers colston basset.  Mmm. Feeling very mellow at the mo.
