If you want a good pink with a beautiful smell take a look at Mortimer Sackler from David Austin.  I have two growing up an arch and they are beautiful and flower repeatedly.  They are also virtually thornless which can be consideration if you have to walk through.

Morning all,  Nanna duty today, done the school trip and tidied upstairs, now hoping little one will have a sleep so I can grab a cuppa and relax a bit.  Not much hope at the moment as she is in her cot shouting 'Nanna love you' at the top of her voice.

Weather was awful here for a short while, cold, windy and heavy rain.  Sun has come out a bit now.

Hope manure delivery men remember to take bags through the side gate, don't much fancy lugging 15 large bags about when I get home.

Been lucky enough to have some really good hols including swimming with Dolphins, looking at Kilimanjaro across the plains of Africa and hot air ballooning over the Nile.  Maybe if I was a bit more sensible I would have put away a bit more for my old age, but I prefer to have the memories, now perfectly happy to enjoy my garden and grandchildren.  Hubby still has wonderlust and scrapes together enough for a holiday each year.

Off for a look around.

Youngest granddaughter (18mths) has become addicted to 'Room on the Broom' a short film adapted from a children's book.

She calls it 'Witch'

Unfortunately she has trouble with W's she replaces them with B's

Try stuffing a bit of tissue up each nostril Panda, it might buy you a bit of time. Seriously, sorry to hear you have a cold, they make you feel so miserable, when will they find a cure I ask myself.

Hi all, Here in Worcs on Nanna duty. Shattered as youngest didn't sleep at all last night. 

Got a phone call to say bags of manure will be delivered tomorrow, I think I ordered 15, so that should keep me busy in a few weeks time.

Glad you had a good holiday Pdoc, try and stay warm.  Hostafan make sure you spend plant of time in the pool, good for the knee. 

Feet up DD and I think you should have a small glass of vino, purely for medicinal purposes, you obviously need to destress.

The area set aside for the dogs toilet should be slabbed as you will need to clean it regularly with Jeyes or something similar, don't use bark as you will remove it when you scoop and don't use decking as the grooves and gaps will be unhygenic.

I wish someone would invent....

For special occasions treat youself to L'Occitane hand scrub it is simply georgeous and really leaves you with smooth, clean hands and nails, it is expensive though.

I suppose liquid amber slender silhouette does sound rather good for a line of  lingerie perhaps I should patent it.
