Dove- big hugs, sorry to hear about your friend. Quiche looks yummy.

Orchid you've given me a good idea as to what to give granddaughter for Easter- decided at 1 month od chocolate really is a no no.

Mrs Garden with this talk of your delivery you have made me even more cross that I was good and didn't buy an oblisk earlier. Want it to grow a Lady in Black fuchsia in.

I'm now getting notifications, but they all come through once a day at about 4.15 am.

Have a good evening everyone

Morning all.

Yesterday was so hot here in North Devon very dulthis morning in comparison.

My daughter's garden is also all decking. Couldn't resist moving everything around yesterday. In evening her OH complained that when he suggested moving things around she didn't bother- at that point I had to admit to doing it without asking whist she was in the shower! Her garden is very small but as she is litterally about 400m from the beach I don't think it should be a problem.

Well have a good day everyone

Dove have something nice to do to treat yoursef when paperwork has been done- a sit in the sunshine if nothing else.

Evening all.

Such a lovely sunny day. I'm making the most of being off work, back next Tuesday .

I have to make the most of my time with granddaughter-I'm in Sussex and she's in Devon a six hour drive. I'll be going to Qatar in the May holiday to see my other daughter so no cuddles for me then.I'm going to move down here if I can get a job I've decided.

The trouble with being down here is I miss my garden.

KEF it must be lovely to have your teeth back to normal.

It is so lovely now to have the evenings back- it only seems like two minutes since I was leaving home in the dark in the morning and getting home in the dark in the afternoon.

Have a good evening everyone.

The sinks look wonderful and what a lot of colour Bob.

You had me laughing out loud at the thought of lifting plants- keep laughing even as I write this.

Can't wait to get home and start planning the sink I've got waiting

Well Panda thought I'd make it worse by telling you that not only is there brilliant sunshine but been busy cuddling granddaughter Poppy all morning. My poor daughter took a deep intake of breath when I bent over holding Poppy to move some big pots around. She is still at the worried about first baby who is only 3 weeks old. I reminded her that I'd had 4 so not quite so worried.

Not only that but my daughter want to go to GC after midwife visit soon. This is the life

Too busy cuddling my lovely little granddaughter since getting here.

Have a great day tomorrow all
