Been to Brighton twice - staying just the one night either end of a trip to Tatton flower show with a former Beeb GW boarder. Needed to do my usual raid on a supermarket as I left and found all the traffic and parking and one ways a bit of a nightmare. much better when that was done and I was driving along the front taking in the view of sea, piers and buildings.
I love kaftans. I made a warm winter one from woven wool fabric, have a thinner cotton one for summer and also couple of short thin lawn cotton ones for hot day schlepping and wearing over a cozzy in the days when we did beach hols with Possum. Still have them just in case.
No gardening today apart from dividing and potting up a clump of short white Michaelmas daisies and some white lychnis coronaria. The forecast was for cloudy but dry and we've had intermittent downpours and thundery stuff all day so I've been oiling chairs and sorting out attics and gathering bedding for packing. Got quite a bit done so not a day wasted grumping at the rain.
Now to do something creative with left over leg of lamb and some rice. North African fruity and spicy maybe.
First to take off the dress I donned when I cleaned up to go to the SM and put on a comfy kaftan to cover my legs. Mozzies and horse flies about and biting.
