Back from hairdressers, feels better, need to be smartened up ready for London trip next Tuesday. We are having 2 night there as we are going to the theatre to see Les Mis on Wednesday. Getting quite excited, haven't been to London for a while..

What's been occuring while I've been away, I see preparations are in hand for Sue's leaving due, I like a little nibble now and again, and a small glass of wine or three

Not much gardening going to be done here today, it's started to rain and it's cold.

All these aches and pains, hope you all feel better soon.

Nice Bunny keeps him out of mischief. Men and their toys

 

My OH has just reminded me we should be leaving for HD at 10.30, so I'd better go and get showered and dressed

See you later.

Morning All.

Bit milder here this morning, so might get out to tidy up the borders that every cat in the neighbourhood had decided to re-arrange Compost all over everywhere.

Hairdressers at 11, then the dreaded ironing awaits. Iron man required..

Nice plant and cat Glyn, pot cats are the best ones I'm beginning to think.

Not much else happening here.

Caz, needs to be chilled will let you know when I open it. All he would have was a cup of tea nice to see him and catch up. He's only here for a few days then back on Saturday ready for St Patrick's day celebrations.

2 weeks on Saturday we alter the clocks

Things are rather quiet, ~~~~~~~~~ very quiet. Must be all the gardening, everyone is worn out.

Evenin All.

Just had a visit from nephew who lives and works in Ireland with belated Birthday present, 10 red tulips and a bottle of champagne wasn't expecting him so a lovely surprise.

Left OH watching football, that's all there seems to be on tv these days.

Happy Birthday Inka, hope you have a lovely day.

Just had a look round the estate and greenhouse, things are looking OK. sown some anntirhinums and potted up lily bulbs. Still ice on the pond but it's warm in the sun.

Really pleased to see some hardy geraniums, Splish Splash, that were seedlings last year are looking well and should be alright to go out into garden this year, kept them in cold frame over winter..

This sunshine makes you feel a lot better

Now for lunch, cheese and onion sandwich, small piece of pork pie that needs eating up and coleslaw, then the dreaded food shop, argh, but it has to be done.

Chris.

Know how you feel Jo. I had to pay the balance of our holiday last week and needed a Euro cheque, the cashier took it out of the ISA account instead of the current account, didn't realise until I got home.Thought it was easier to transfer the money back myself than ask them to do it, don't know where it would have ended up. She had to keep asking another cashier if she was doing it correctly, it doesn't inspire you with much confidence. It makes you feel like shredding them.

Geoff, just be careful on that roof, don't want you falling through.

Enjoy your day folks, be it at work or in the garden.

Cheers

Lizzie, you husband sounds just like mine, he knows it's no use saying anything, just keeps saying 'I thought you were cutting down on things this year' and rolls his eyes.

I haven't ordered any plug plants this year as we are hoping to go away for more holidays and having to rely on neighbours to water isn't really fair. Going to plant more perennials and hope for the best.
