Ystevie, great pictures, great memories. Hope you've got your voice back.

Lily Germany v Brasil at 9pm

Dove I have flowers but no beans yet.

What I don't have is any bees  Stachys in full flower in two areas of garden, clover on the green stuff, loads of bee loving plants and only two bees have I seen today. Don't want loads of them but no wasps either. Only three cabbage whites, I planned on laughing at them trying to get at my winter veg which is netted. No poisons here so wonder what is wrong

Lily glad salt mine was okay. Panda will be late she posted that she's having her hair done after work.

Clari we had dark, cool and a few spits, now bright so shorts back on and Tshirt, fed up of changing clobber.

OL brill  Yes they keep growing. When you have a glut  blanche them, chill quickly and serve drizzled with lemon & olive oil.

Strange not the word that comes into my mind Clari  Hope they don't play one against the other.

When we had redundacy issues there was no funding for three services. One re-jigged less hours & pay and status job available. One woman was told she wasn't eligible so would be leaving. They thought that my collegue and friend would compete for what was offered, be interviewed etc...We both said no we wouldn't compete and took the money. Strangely the rules altered and the woman who wasn't eligible was given the job.

Clari  If we get rain I'll send it to you, we got some last evening. I use the hose we aren't on a meter, weighed up savings against hefty water bill and hose won

How long is your hose I'll fill the butt for you. Good job I posted that on a gardening forum

Back in, that was a short trip into the garden. Now gone very dull and breeze cool. Dove please don't send it up here

Just had a thought  Rules regarding redundancy apply if more that a certain number work for a firm. Our branch didn't have that number but because we worked for a national set up they had to be applied. Clari might work for a small firm.

Good shout about Bill OL

Dove I'll have to Google those plants

Clari as has been said there are rules !! When I was made redundant they were adhered to even if no consideration to individuals welfare was given, I feel for you x

Had a visit at Mum's and now have a pair of trousers to shorten, sad thing is when we bought them a few months ago they weren't too long  the joys of getting old..NONE

Off into garden now, see you all later
