Back of the house SGL and fully fenced 

Hosta, I agree. The thing that gets me the most is that the parents constantly have to tell their kids off and punish them all the time but it doesn't seem to work. The two boys are the worst offenders at home and school and yet as parents ourselves, I never let my three boys make noise and rarely had to discipline. They were never naughty at school either   

Took a short trip to B&Q for batteries but didn't find any sticky labels. They had white Lupins and pink Salvia and Veronica but all a little bit too pink for me. I need to fill gaps with the subtle stuff so might take a trip next week to GO

Sunbathing now

Bill, thank you for being here with us, we were honoured to be in your company 

Stupid hot today and I will be putting my bikini on  just one problem. ..need help putting cream on my back, I missed a spot yesterday and OH was locked in the office working on another contract, so I got a red patch while washing the car 

Hosta, I feel the same as your OH, two next door neighbours with rowdy children that scream in each others faces and are hell bent on destroying stuff. I moan about it every day after school so OH tells me to wear my ipod in the school holidays

Goodness me a braless Panda!

I can't even be seen in public with a gap in my shirt these days. Never used to be like that but age + a little more out front has me fearing the mutton.

Not from the ants themselves although nests inside the pots could indicate dryness unless they just found the hollow bits if you used something for drainage

Well I'm not about to be left out of the sunshine, it's gorgeous here and going up to 36 on Wednesday. Good job I bought some new bikinis then although sale stuff was rubbish I did manage two lovely pairs from my ever faithful friend Next. Strange how I've gone up a size when I'm doing gym at 7 o'clock in the morning 

Oh well, got some new flipflops as well although we won't mention who ate the last pair 

Car has been washed and polished, housework complete, washing drying, ironing piling up as usual and now sitting on my lounger in the garden waiting for my parents to visit, Flynn has a play date.
