Thanks Margo, that's really sweet! Have a good day yourself.

We were going to watch the Ireland/England match at the hotel - but it's closed again! Don't ask. Mad Rolling Eyes

Have to find somewhere else for a Guinness. Very Happy

Enjoy Sue. We was going to the parade, but I'm not feeling 100% today. Plus getting so cold and standing around will not help matters especially as its not long since I had the knee replacement, and I don't want to undo the work of the surgeon

Hi Margo, hope you are feeling better soon. There are some nasty, lingering bugs around at the moment. We ALL need some better weather!!

Are you there T? How are you now?

On the mend thankfully. Not 100% yet but getting there. Thanks for asking.

Here's an interesting app for your phone.

https://www.wecroak.com/

You are encouraged to take one moment for contemplation, conscious breathing or meditation when WeCroak notifications arrive. We find that a regular practice of contemplating mortality helps spur needed change, accept what we must, let go of things that dont matter and honour things that do.

I know that I'm immortal (Well, I did say that I'd live forever and so far, so good! Smile ) but all of you are going to die eventually and this app brings you down to earth. Excuse the horrendous pun! Smile Smile

How morbid. Why would I want to be prodded with sayings about death 5 times a day, especially my own?

It kept threatening rain all day - finally cleared up just before sunset! Rolling Eyes So I spent the day saying 'I'll just do this before I the rain starts, I'll just finish this before the rain starts.... ' Got a heck of a lot done, borders tidied, trees planted, Tea House Spring cleaned, but am now SO tired!

I bought some red cabbage and broad been plants last Tuesday, really need to get them in the ground. Always tried to grow them from seed but was always hit and miss. So I gave up last year and bought plants. We only need a few, six red cabbage lasted all Winter, so it is really worth it.

My 'Sakura' tomatoes arrived last week. They look a bit bedraggled, but will soon pick up.

Having a day off tomorrow. Very Happy

I bought a courgette and a cucumber plant as I'm the only one that likes them. I haven't done broad beans this year but did quite well over the years. I never do them outside as they get so wind damaged as most plants do here as we are right on the hill. We get the winds straight off the Atlantic. That's why I do most stuff in the polytunnel.

I know what you mean! We are six miles from the coast, but it still cuts up rough sometimes. I planted a hedge that I'm hoping will be a good windbreak - in a couple of years.

Made a cheese omelette for tea, and added some broccoli spears - first fresh veg of the year, and very nice too!

Strange sort of day. Damp and drizzly this morning, I struggled to do a bit of tidying - we are away this weekend and leaving it til next week is just not on.

This afternoon was warm and sunny - but where the fluffy-heck did that wind come from! The washing on the line was horizontal and held on with 5 pegs!

Sowed some carrot and beetroot seeds, amazingly they didn't blow away!

We've had awful wind and rain Sue as well. I can't get out in the garden at the moment so its so frustrating seeing it needs clearing.
I gave up hanging the washing outside. Not a pretty sight when the cows are wearing my knickers
