Overheard conversation yesterday 

" I love cold tea; I make one at night and leave it by the bed and drink it when I wake up"

Is it just me who thinks that's totally weird?


My dad was in the army and he told me they were taught maximum efficiency which meant filling the hot water bottle with tea to drink in the morning 

I was shopping in M&S on Monday, buying new chinos which are far less exciting than Dove's knickers but anyways, I did ask about the sales and the assistant looked guilty when she told me she wasn't allowed to say but she looked guilty so I checked on Tuesday and it was the sale. Luckily my chinos were not reduced 

Thunderstorms here today that go round in a loop when they hit the South Downs, garden is happy

I'm not a fan, sorry

I was looking at Rudbeckias last month, huge flowerheads in shades of golden brown but I went for the Sedums instead. I really like rusty shades at this time of year but I have issues with overly contrived

Awwww poor pooch Steve.

Our's has food in tolerances which ban him from most things, especially treats so meal times, which he always takes with us, involve his usual kibbles or a piece of chicken breast or other piece of lean meat which he relishes. He just likes to feel included around food and has learnt that snacks are off the menu, but he is also the happiest little boy in town now he's not throwing up every day 

Been painting all day apart from nipping into to town to pay some cheques in the bank, exhausted now
