Another brilliant book, this one given to me by a friend, I do like Miriam, she is honest and funny, she swears like a trooper. She has had a very interesting life, and talks about the same issues as most of us get as we age, book 49 read this year.
It's been a nothing few days, we popped to B&Q, I wanted some plant pot wheels, passed on theirs to big and expensive, I looked through the plants, most looked half dead, normally in our local branch they are well looked after. Hubby got new sink taps for the downstairs bathroom, ours are very tight. Homebargains was close-by, so we popped in for a few household items, I got a small plant to fill a gap.
I have dug out my Hosta's, one is in a copper coal bucket, the other is in a galvanised bucket, both helps deter the slugs and snails, this year both plants have been ate, just stalks left, so I dug them out, in hope I have cleared away any slug or snail eggs in the soil, I have also cleaned the slate as well, so fingers crossed next year they will survive.
I've picked my second cucumber and there are loads more, tomatoes are not doing so well, one plant died, second plant not setting flowers. Eating loads of strawberries and just a few raspberries. Herbs are really happy in their new pots and I'm harvesting loads.
I did get my sewing machine out, I added another big fabric badge to hubby's motorbike jacket and I cut down a pair of Will's joggers to shorts, cutting off the ripped knee's, he put them on and did not want to take off, I have a couple of school joggers to cut down for the summer weeks ahead. I've not done any of my knitting, just too lazy, not started a new book yet, but I have been to library and have 6 more books.
Daughter stayed the highest scoring lady on the archery last Saturday at the Gala, she was thrilled, I am sure once the children are older she will join the local club.
