Good Afternoon I have had a good day so far

First thing we went to the Tile Warehouse to choose the tiles for the new shower room- I saw some I liked and a glass border which I quite fancy

Now I can order the flooring,too

I have been dusting and hoovering and have cleaned the kitchen - also done the ironing molehill

We are babysitting our 2 youngest Grandchildren this evening so I have made some ham and parmesan pinwheels to go with some nibbles which we will have either watching Mama Mia or Dancing for Comic Relief

Chunky chicken and veg soup is made - i will make some dumplings to go with it I think

The weather is supposed to be good tomorrow so I will be able to go and do some more potting up in the greenhouse

Have a lovely evening everyone

Chilli plants

It sounds like an aphid attack to me .I would give the plants a gentle shower with tepid water and keep an eye on them - I wouldn't spray with a chemical insecticide if you are using the chillies but a bit of washing up liquid diluted with water wouldn't hurt

That is annoying about the car Lottie I hope your brother is o.k

I have enjoyed myself this morning - sitting in my greenhouse with the radio on potting up plants - so far 16 pink marguerites and 50 white ones

Just come in for some lunch - cheese on toast I think
