Interesting Dachalover. I first got into computing after seeing a job advertised in the Philippines paying ludicrous money for a COBOL programmer so off I went and trained. Then I worked for a software house but always in the UK. Moved locks, stock, barrel and 5 cats to Belgium when OH was assigned to run a project for Swift.
It's hot here again but not sticky and there's a breeze but it's too strong for even the mad Brits to be out in the midday sun. I have spent a couple of hours this morning gathering up all but the two biggest pots of roses and moving them to a new, shadier location after deadheading, weeding, top dressing, repotting and feeding as needed. Can't get them out in their new home until we've laid the terrace stones and had lots and lots of rain so we can level and improve the soil for them to get their roots down deep.
Had a little tickle of some other pots and then retreated out of the sun. OH has helped me move the bigger pots and then gone off to oil the planks we'll be using to make raised beds in the potager. He's a good garden labourer but pretty clueless about plants so we divide the tasks as we both like to have healthy plants and fresh produce.
Possum has just got home from her second surfing lesson and is happy. Good.
Hosta - with you on Dr Who. Gave up in the David Tennant years and left OH and Possum to watch it while I pottered in the kitchen. Gave up on James Bond too till Daniel C came along. Good choice.
Liri - hope you have a great trip to Ireland and no excitable seas this time.
Busy - family gathering sounds good. Glad you've had a good trip up.
Raisin - sounds like a good balance to me and I can see why your OH was giggly.
I suppose I'd better see about some lunch. OH is learning to drive the new BBQ...........
Enjoy your day everyone.
