Sorry, I have now eaten all the chocolate fingers, but there are 2 Eccles cakes left.

I'm watching Downton too. Need to catch up on Montalbano too.

Afternoon all, just had a lovely afternoon in the garden, but got back ache now. Need to rest and catch up with the Grand Prix, drinking tea and eating an Eccles cake, followed by Cadburys chocolate fingers.

Pulled up my crocosmia Lucifer which were in totally the wrong place, not sure where to put them now though. They have multiplied tremendously so think I will offer them around in work. OH came out to help, which is good, but he is like a bull in a china shop

Having a grazing meal tonight and mopping up stuff left in the fridge.

Morning all, you are right it is quiet here this morning, everyone must be in the garden. Lovely day here, still and sunny. Not sure what we are doing yet, so just having a relaxing hour on my own.

Hot Ribena and chocolate required Jean. Freshers flu doing the rounds in work, hope it doesn't catch up with me.

Becks, do kids still play pass the parcel?

Try a hydrangea petiolaris (see my avatar) does really well against a retaining wall which is in the shade. The bees and other insects love it too which is a bonus to the beautiful flowers.

Morning all, drunken beer festival revellers all delivered home safely by Glyn's taxi service. My friend and I had a lovely quiet evening for a chat and SCD. She has been on a cruise where CRH was one of the celebrities and she said he was absolutely charming, really friendly with everyone. I agree that his act has gone a bit over the top. Rossendale jury is out on Darcey. I think it is time for Bruce to retire! It's getting a bit like a pantomime, I think I am going to start recording it, then I can FF through the dross.

Caroline, mam used to make lovely Welsh cakes, mmmm hot with butter straight off the griddle. We used to call them bakestones in Newport. My sister now living in Canada maintains the tradition, but has changed her recipe slightly. She makes a batch and they disappear instantly.

Blinkin' 'eck, Dean, heard about it, but never knew anyone it happened to, bad luck mate.

Off now take OH and pick up friends OH to take them to a beer festival in Chorley, then we are going to spend the night in watching Strictly. Unfortunately will have to pick them up when they've had a few and having a natter.

Afternoon all, wet here. Home from work early for a change, off out tonight. Interesting photo Geoff, I've seen something on TV about him. A friend of mine dresses in a similar fashion when she is gardening. Toy wouldn't want to get too close to the eryngium!
