My cars nice and quiet too, tucked up for the night on the drive.
Not been around much so just checking in to say hi and hope you're all well.
Glad your OH knows the de stress formula dove.
Has OLs OHs secret future plan materialised, last time i saw it was iminent?
What about Clarii? New job on Monday is it?
And lily, just love that you are work free from Wednesday, sorry it was brought very forward due to hassles and ratbag though.
Bekkii s got a sore hip even though she's just a spring chicken.
Not sure what else has happened :S
Also nit sure what news of mine im up to! Watered tonight with old reinstated hose tap location (i know its late but come on you know what i mean...) anyway it was so much easier and i felt 'back in touch with my garden'. I also sat in a different place - on the lawn- and saw the garden from adifferent perspective (seriously try it!), i saw it totally differently to usual, lovely. Enough of the word different! I'm really pleased with it especially a beautiful cosmos from a beautiful forumsr (thankyou), it must must go on the star thread. I feel as though i could enthuse about my garden all night long but then i remember the weeds and the dead bits which need something doing with...
Night all.

Hope hedgie sleeps well.
Come to think of it - how is anyone meant to sleep in this heat? Open the windows, then open the curtains to let the air through, put in ear plugs to get rid of all the outside noise, next find an eye mask so the street lights not keeping you awake. Cold water bottle??? Too late to go and buy a fan, suppose a trip to the loft isn't out of the question - never know what noisy contraption may be up there. Anyone invented a reverse electric blanket yet, where you can switch it to cool setting? After all that im tired out but still too hot to sleep...

Asclepias tuberosa - new one for me - thanks for just knowing these things

afternoon all. Had antihistermine for brekkie and ate the blackberries - was I supposed to rub them on the bites (only just seen the advice)? seemed to work as only just started itching again now.

Glorious day, people watching for a while, lunch out and a fascinating meeting, all part of the job.

If the sun would go down a bit I could get on with the watering, but I'm happy to wait.

Morning everyone.
Panda and friend look very chilled, is mini panda back home looking after your gardens? Well maybe making lists as she's tired out.
Gg do you ever stop?! Pallet ideas and then getting on with it - brilliant!
Thanks fb and yes lily I was so relieved had to celebrate with a red!
Suffering several bites from the woodland walk yesterday so will be having antihistermine for breakfast.
Oft to pleasant civilized work today (salt mines tomorrow).
Have a good day, hope you all get to do at least a little of what you fancy today!
