Pleased to hear Ma is feeling a bit better Dove - aged P's are a worry aren't they? I'm sure it's a little easier knowing she's so well cared for - her home sounds like a very good one.
Pat's pies and biscuits look yummy as usual and everybody else sounds as though they've been busy.
Think I'm finally on top of most of the admin so I've been trying to get in the garden for a couple of hours every day for the the last few days - mainly cutting back, weeding and generally turning the soil. Hope to start feeding and mulching in a day or so.
My garden is a funny old mix. In some areas the soil is relatively thin and dry and in others it is the heaviest of clay. I've been working in one of the clay bits today and it's impossible to get a handfork into it. I think that bit didn't get mulched last year so it's going to get a good 6" of compost mulch tomorrow.
Just starting to rain now so time for soup then ironing then a quick tidy up before OH comes home late tonight. Will be pleased to see him home safe and sound after the attacks in Brussels - one of his colleagues was staying in a hotel very close to the underground station and was not allowed to leave the building for 24 hrs. He got home yesterday.
Will catch up with The Archers while I'm ironing - find out what that b*st**d Titchener has been up to while I was away
