Morning all. 

Another lovely sunny day. 

A little bit of contact with the outside world then off to the beach.

I'm glad it's not just me re mobile phones.

There's the most beautiful plant in the gardens here. If I can work out the new phone I'll post it, if not......

Keep warm and hope all poorly peeps are improving.

Is this mahonia?

All I'd add is , remove the bubble wrap. It'll just the plant to sweat then rot. As others have said, use fleece, or even old net curtains .

Morning  all. 

Been here 48 hours before finding out they're UK time - one hour. oops.

OH has walked to the town for a wee look. No chance of my knee holding up for that sort of nonsense.

Couple sitting next to me are reading out UK's weather forecast and laughing heartily.

What is it with folk and phones? Monday night table of 6, at least 5 phones in play at any one time. The only time they spoke to each other was to compare what was on their phones.

Last night  a couple with a little , maybe 3 year old. Mum did not put her phone down once, eating single handedly. When the kid finished dinner and got bored of being ignored, started to wander about. Mum's answer? get out an iPad, stick on a cartoon and stick in front of kiddy.

Pat it's lovely and warm. , maybe 28C. Perfect.

Edd, direct 5hour flight form Gatwick.

Thanks for the warm wishes. Keep warm.

I made all the curtains in my last house and also made maternity clothes for ex wife and clothes for my girls when they were small.

re sewing. 

I have my mother's / grandmother's Singer machine. I have the receipt for it too.

It was bought on Feb 10th 1917 for the huge sum of £7 11shillings.

2 weeks Lily

Pat I watched Adele twice last night. OH's siesta lasted so long we didn't have dinner. I'd just about finished watching it when he got up , so watched it again.
