Dont 'do' posh, will scrub up though.

As usual have treated myself in M&S & get back to find that they've sent me a voucher... But I did use gift vouchers so not all bad & wasnt full price either. So stop it Jo.

Front garden very uninteresting

Bjay- I'd go for the Cotinus coz it's easier to keep smallish, if that's what you want. Photinias are pretty fast growers IME so may need more work in the long run, but thed you may want a tree.......J.

errr jo is the engineer to look at OH or boiler

Boiler, mechanical sort!

Have just told OH that daughter has left bags & bags & boxes of 'stuff' to take up tomorrow. It's Ikea furniture assembly day! Will be good practice for when I finally measure a space we've got & order ours!! After last yrs fiasco I'm not in a rush- know what I/we want & it'll not be discontinued!

All being well, if we're good, we'll get a 'day off' on Sunday. J.

Lottie, bighugs from me & all, we understand. Just pop in whenever you feel like it.

OH n e a r l y asleep in chair. Have arranged for engineer house visit, only another 10 days of yelling at it!! Well probably will be longer coz will need parts/new one fitted, oh heck, then Easter intervenes................

Still to order tesco, but sort of organised for tonight's meal & shop list for me/OH already done!

Sweetpeas look happy in the porch, more shoots on the dahlias, so not all bad. J.

We had Golden Retrievers who prefered my Mum's fruitcake to bones! The mother also used to pick blackberries from the bushes.

Bjay, I gather your muscles are paying you back for yesterday's efforts? Take care.

I went to TC & collected the curtains for daughter. Had my usual coffee & a little bit of retail therapy using vouchers, so didnt cost much at all.

Bunny, ignore him.  J.

Begonia- Book says leaf cuttings root easily, so rooting powder probably not nec. They can also be divided at repotting time. J.
