Evening all, just back from a hectic day of nanna duty.  Mabel woke us up at 5 this morning and proceeded to stand on my specs. After a morning in Worcester getting them mended. I got home to a  phone call from Meredith's school to say she was feeling ill and could I fetch her.  I'm not going into details re the joys of my afternoon you really wouldn't want to know.

Might have a go at planting some bulbs tomorrow.

Cake and pie look delicious Dove.

I only sleep with a 4 tog quilt whatever the weather and it fits into the washer so gets laundered regularly.

Morning all,  Just back from hospital, consultant is pleased with his handiwork. Just got 7 days of sitting upright to get through now. 

It's very hazy here but I think the sun will eventually put it's hat on.  Have watered the pots and Canna Duban is looking as though it will be lovely there is a second flower spike can't wait till they open.  This late sunshine has certainly brought out the best in the garden.

On nanna duty tonight and tomorrow, if I can manage to stay awake, far too many early mornings this week for my liking.

Hi Everyone,  Thanks for all you good wishes re Hubby.  The op went OK they have repaired a tear in his retina that has only just become apparent and reattached the section that was adrift.  They also did the cataract in that  eye at the same time.  He now has to lie flat for 24 hours (at least 50mins out of every hour).  Then for the next 7 days he has to stay upright so that means sleeping sitting up with 3 pillows.   Tommorow we have to go back so they can check their handiwork. 

Hope the move went OK Wonky.

Glad the horseriding session was OK DD. 

The weather was wonderful again today, we are so lucky to be enjoying so much sun at the moment.

Evening all, Sorry you are still feeling crook Pat hope you final  scan goes OK.  Been reading back but now I'm on a new page and can't remember what went on. 

I know someone's dog is poorly so hope he heals OK. Hope everyone else is OK.

I was on nanna duty today and had to drive to firstborns at 7.00 am  I have to say it was the most beautiful journey, the moon was still out and everywhere had a pink glow.  The mist was threading through the fields and trees, just sorry I didn't have the time to stop for longer and admire the view.

Off to bed in a minute as have to be up early again to take hubby to hospital for his second op.

Is this unusual

Have had a response from Woolmans re the bicoloured chrysanth.  They have not seen this particular gene mutation before.  They didn't mention wanting to do anything so I'm going to have a go at propogating it myself.

Lovely photos everyone. I replanted the front garden pots the weekend.  This is what I went for, two of the same under the bay window.

Secondborn walked out to the theme tune from Romancing the Stone, everyone loved it and knew exactly what it was from the very first note.
