My very first purchase from ebay arrived this afternoon so I watched Escape to the Country with my feet up, acknowledging my age for the first time.  It was very comfortable and my feet did feel warmer off the ground.  My armchair does have a pushout foot rest but this comes with a slouch position for sitting which I cannot tolerate so now i can have my feet up and a straight back at the same time.

That is the plan flumpy.  Garden very wet this morning but it is dry and fairly bright at the moment although the next four days forecast rain so must do as much as I can today.

Oh that must have been scary in the dark and the fog,flumpy.  I think today should be a bit better fogwise though we were lucky in my part of Bristol.  There is a change in the weather coming so the fog menace should go soon.

I emailed the Secret Gardening Club to enquire about my plants that were supposed to have been shipped last Monday and had it confirmed that it was my asters I had ordered which are still in the ground that was holding up my delivery,  They apologised for the confusion and said my plants would be with me soon.  Big sigh of relief.
