I'm so sorry to hear your sad news, SGL. Stay strong, you can do this and come out the other side xxx

Maybe MU had a very late night last night and is still sleeping off the pizza and whatever else. Or Crunchie has finally had his revenge.......just when she thought it was safe and relaxed a tad
As for me I tried her suggestion to relax with a mustard bath after Tiggsy's and my night on the tiles. Son doesn't have a bath unfortunately, just a shower but I did my best. I've promised him I'll clean up today once I've got back from A&E where they're treating the mustard burns.

Runny, your daughter away in Belgium, would she like to drop in to eat? Love it Since she can't come I'll pop over if that's ok, I'll have chicken same as Joyce wants. MU, if there's no room at Runny's I'm definitely up for some music and pizza

Runny and Yvie, don't know about you but that walk on the common in the fresh air has tired me out
Heels, I have one pair of black highish heeled shoes. Bought years back to go to a family graduation ceremony and worn on another occasion when we were invited to a dinner on a cruise ship that had docked in Venice. Long story but we were staying with a student I'd taught who was Italian navy and when he got some invites he wangled another couple for OH and me.
I normally live in flip flops or trainers with flat shoes/boots/sandals when anything 'better' is needed. Happiest barefoot but a bit chilly for that yet.
B3, your figs! Just tell yourself they probably wouldn't have ripened fully anyway and whatever ate the newly formed fruits is now probably laid low with raging stomach problems
Sorry but I was never keen on hydrangeas and then, like Obelixx, I discovered paniculata. I was given a white one for my birthday and loved it.
Freezing cold here, hope it's a bit better at home where I left the GH vents open and door slightly open too.

Morning all, cor, did Tiggs and I have a night out! Her paws are killing her as she doesn't normally do heels.
Off out shortly for a walk on the common. I'll drop in and out of here as and when - would miss you lot if I didn't get my daily dose of dollop.

Joyce, you must be psychic re my choice of clothes. Yep, me and Tiggs off out together clubbing while OH stays with son. I wondered if Tiggs would like a matching set the same as mine and briefly considered shaving her middle so she has a crop top and perhaps hind legs too to give the appearance of a mini skirt. However the pinkish wrinkly skin underneath wouldn't be very attractive so we decided not. Mind you, if we'd done it she and I would have looked even more similar.
These 5" heels are killing me but I'm not giving in to age yet. See ya in the morning, girls😁

At son's, he's cooking and dog is extremely interested. She's had a trot round to investigate everything and is now lying elegantly in her bed, paws crossed, observing the cooking going on.
Hope all went ok at the hospital, Runny, and if there's any of LBs' choccies you don't like, I'll help you out.
Joyce those rugs of your daughter's sound gorgeous. I love things like that but never seem to have the right place for them even if I had one.
Weather was weird here too. Sunny with blue skies this morning then what looked like sleet afterwards.

As someone else said, I think, great seeing the flowers others have got and hearing what has or hasn't come out yet in other parts of the country.

Late on here this morning. Got to dogwalk in a minute because showers forecast later plus also need to sort some things out ready for when son picks us up this evening.
Dog has told me she's extremely worried about what to take with her because she's only got her everyday dogwalking clothes to wear and thinks that she may need another outfit - she's never gone on holiday before.

And a ceanothus at the back beside the tulip I forgot to add!

Just dumped into a jamjar - no arranging here! Wallflowers, tulip, dicentra, choysia sundance, euphorbia, aquilegia and a hardy geranium.

Hazel, off tomorrow evening to stay with son for a few days. There a place near him which has masses of rhodos which are apparently just in flower now. He's promised to take me😀 (OH as well but he wouldn't recognise a rhodo if he fell over one).
Signing off for this evening, catch you tomorrow.

MU, Tiggs is no greyhound but does have a whippet or greyhound cross in her. In the pics she looks quite small but, as you say, she unfolds her long legs and long ratty tail and transforms into a totally different looking dog. Sort of how a fruit bat can fold in its long bony wings when it roosts.....
She says thank you to everyone for her welcome here and she won't post a pic of her 'extended look' or playing with her doberman friend as it might scare the cats. Except for Harry, she wouldn't mind scaring him, she says, because she'd hate it if that hedge was on one of her walks!! Lovely to see Bonzo with the cats, Obelixx. I bet they wish he'd stayed off the pheromone sometimes.
Hogweed, I'm so sorry to hear about Cody. I didn't know what that FIP was and had to look it up. How awful. Most of us with pets will have gone through bad experiences like that and we know how devastating it is.

Tiggs wants to know if you cat lovers and cats will accept her here? That second pic is of her lying asleep with tongue falling out and fangs showing - surely the cats wouldn't be afraid of that inoffensive pose

I'd need a bit more than pressing, Pansy, I'd need a good spray of heavy duty starch as well.

Hiya Hogweed! Beautiful blue skies and sun here - looks great through the window. Step outside and the wind is bitter. GH went to 4.9C last night.
LB, stay in the GH and don't even contemplate working outside.
Pansy, do NOT attempt ironing. I don't know, I come on here, sit down with my coffee to have a browse and I'm met with filthy words before I've even had a slurp.

Night everyone. I'm really tired - as usual - and I'm going to try to get an earlier night for once. Won't stop me reading first though.

He's considering forgiving you just as long as you don't put another paw wrong. He's beautiful and so you have to bow to his command. PS, like the chair material!

I love your foxy updates DHR. Those litle'uns have had a fantastic start to life. They got caught this morning....they're probably running riot every night except you didn't find out until now Good to hear you've covered the pool - as Joyce says, it's like having toddlers around!

We've just forced a hedge trimmer on younger son as we don't need it but we're clearing out the shed!
