Lovely sunny day here but I've missed most of the morning catching up on sleep. Cosmos played for 3 hours after we went to bed and then I woke up before dawn feeling too hot - kitten wrapped round my neck.. OH sleeps through it and didn't even notice his bedside lamp toppling onto his pillow. Minstrel is much quieter but did explore beyond the stair barrier yesterday evening and found herself being inspected by two very curious dogs. Oops. BIt too soon Both kitties are now exploring the living room and all those doggy smells while OH forks over the bed under the albizzia with help from the dogs.
We bought 16 70 litre bags of multi-purpose compost yesterday (on offer). I decided to check too late and yes - all 16 tipped out on that bed. He'll barrow some of it to the hibiscus bed we're also rescuing but really! Still, the plants should love it. That's me on planting bubs and treasures this pm then.
Flowers - good luck with the op. You'll get restless with all the enforced rest but be patient and take the time to heal well. Stock up on books, TV recordings, hand crafts and so on.
Busy, do you put those lacy things on the horses' heads in summer to keep the flies out of their eyes?
Was chatting a few months ago to a couple of retired dance friends with fierce intellects and curiosity and they were astonished to learn that the major museums are free in teh UK. Now planning a trip to do London - British, V&A, Natural HIstory, Design, Tate etc - museum overload for me. I have to plan trips to spend a couple of hours targeted on specific exhibits or paintings and then I appreciate without being saturated.
