Good morning all.

Hope we are all bright and breezy this morning,

We had our renewal for staywarm gas and electric yesterday.and was pleasantly surprised that the price has stayed the same as last year,. That's a relief, can now put heating on a bit more

I have been on the internet looking for holiday gites in the Dordogne/Lot area of France for next May. Oh has got a bee in his bonnet and wants to plan for next year likes to have something to look forward to he says. Daughter and her partner are coming with us so I shall be spending endless hours on computer trying to find something that suits us all. Something to do when I can't get outside, I suppose.

The sun has just made an appearance so might put some washing out and go and look round a very soggy garden, pained down all night here.

Be back later, enjoy your day.

A few classroom clangers as in todays Daily Mail

1. What part does the House of Lords play in legislative procedure.

It keeps the people involved in the procedure warm and dry

2. What is the Italian term for change of speed in music.

Fast-a fast-a.

3. Give an example of how smoking can cause long-term damage..

It causes heavy breeding.

4. What sources are there for social and ethnic stereotypes.

Tomato ketchup in the south, brown sauce in the north.

Aint Education a wonderful thing. Out for tea tonight at daughters, now I wonder what it will be?

Come on class, pull yourselves together,.

Welcome bjay, you don't have to be mad but it does help as you will soon find out if you hang around. It doesn't matter what you talk about, the conversation goes off at a tangent, so don't worry, you will be guaranteed a laugh.


 Belle Epoch bush rose, still more to come.

I've just had a stroll round the garden and taken a few more pics.


 Tryphlla fuchsia, Coralle I think.


 View across the gravel garden. OH is tackling the hedge as I write, We have brambles 12ft long coming over from the old orchard, the owner doen't do anything to it, so we have to go round and chop it back. A quiet word is needed in his shell-like

Love the sunflowers Pam. a real ray of sunshine, thanks

Good morning all,

There's nothing happening in my neck of the wood, quiet as the grave .Everyone's away on their hols. Some people buy their house just for the house and don't consider the garden at all,. Then they move in and realise that gardening' is jolly hard work and it is easier to pay someone else to "tidy" it up. The results often speak for them selves.

A little snippet from todays Daily Mail. - apparently scientists have discovered that mice can be taught to sing, well Bagpuss knew that! The next job for Gareth maybe, a mouse choir,

There is a lovely cartoon to go with the article. A little mouse sitting on a stool playing a guitar with couple looking on. One says to the other. "Well I knew he could sing but didn't know he could play the guitar." just my sense of humour.

Have a good day, no rain here as yet.


What's the weather like in your area?

Hi everyone.

The Garden Centre was full of C Decorations, sorry Geoff, but it was full on as you walked in the door. I'm not a misery, no matter what any body says, but I really don't want to think about C yet. To top it all I went to visit a neighbour who I haven't seen for a couple of days and was getting a bit concern about and as I left she handed me a C cake she had made for us. She says I have to feed it then went on to explain that it needs a drop of brandy every week, until C.

No tea for me tonight, had fish and chips at lunch time, so too full for tea, may be a sandwich later.

Will make my way to the naughty corner now, sorry.

Afternoon everyone.

It's been a lovely day here, although to box said Dark Clouds, we haven't seen any.

I quite like this time of year. It was very still, no wind, and fairly warm as we went through the Wolds to the garden centre. OH now has new hoses for the garden pond pump, and has reconnected them,so all's well again..

I don't mind spiders, and the webs that they spin are just incredible and you get to see their beautiful patterns when the dew is on them. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.
