Joyce - OH's ambition is to play golf when he's 100 and he's a December baby so that means another 35 years before he can happily croak. Thinking along those lines you should see the tree peony flower and a couple of generations of its offspring too.
Cool today and vaguely sunny but no gardening still as thumb is still all wrapped up and tender. Getting better tho so maybe next week?
Busy - our roofing man has been due to fix a couple of loose tiles for the last 4 weeks! He passes by on his way home to the village nearly every day so it's a bit frustrating. Recent gales have been having a merry time with our slates. The electrician has been going to pop in for months to fix a circuit of ceiling spots in our bedroom. He too lives just down the road so treats us as not urgent for when he has a spare half hour!
It took the plumber's son (two villages and 6kms away) 3 visits to identify that a leak in a bathroom was the toilet cistern and not the u-bend or the connector pipe both of which he "fixed" and then he had to come again with a new cistern. At least he comes when he says he will and cleans up.
Hope everyone's having a good day at work, play, visits etc.
