TB is not a good way t o start or even end a day. What were the Beeb thinking?
Have been for my blood test and, as ever, te nurse had trouble finding a vein so I'm full of holes in both arms. Now I'm having a coffee before I attempt anything else. Feeling fresh out there. 16C now but a wind chill - in August for heaven's sake - that makes it feel like 11C. 1.5mm of rain is the storms that failed to appear which makes 60mm since mid Jan.
I shall go and weed anyway as soon as I've finished Possum's new top.
AR - we've been watching John Torode in Korea so ordered up some spices and pastes to try a few recipes. The Korean blast will now be this weekend and Possum can help.
Didn't watch the Partition programme cos I knew I'd get cross. The Foreign Office had no idea then and probably still no idea now. Same sort of chaps who did the partition of Africa between Britain France and Germany in the 1880s with no regard to geography or tribal territories. Where do these people get "educated"?
Hope OH gets better soon Pat. I leave mine alone if he's rude enough to get grumpy when I'm looking after him but I do ply him with drinks and tempting morsels or just soup. He likes soup.
RG - I have been known to have words with plants about doing or dying. Seems to work most times.
