Wot? Not much rain in the Gower???? And I only live 25 miles away! That's it! I'm moving house! Glad you had a good time, Dove. it is a beautiful place, eh?
Been to Touchwood. Eccentric garden but rather charming and a nice lady. Had my own guided tour when I went to buy some bare root plants and aquilegia seeds early this year. Didn't manage to get there when the aquilegias were in flower, though.
We've had sudden, intense showers and the heavy sky seems to promise more. I've put out the washing, in hope, though - the triumph of hope over experience, I expect.
A bit of stingy shopping, this morning (self-imposed economy drive to pay for house improvements) and then (if the Swansea area is still dry) bro's garden this afternoon and evening. The dogs have a pre-booked haircut this morning, so can't go earlier. Then, probably, a day of sheer exhaustion tomorrow. And me only 27....
Glad you had a good time, Andy. My garden seems to have escaped being flattened, as yet - sorry to hear about yours.
Chicky, you'll have to try to get old a bit faster, that's all. It's worth it, honest, not to have to go to work. Not that I know much about that, of course, being 27.
Next week,more of bro's furniture arrives from Israel, where he's been teaching. More hard effort! His grandchildren, whom he and his OH are bringing up, will be there and I'll finally be able to get to know them properly. They are 2 and 5. I'm really looking forward to that and hope to be wearing a groove along the motorway between here and Swansea, as the weeks go by.
FG, will you please stop working!!! You are making me feel tired!
