    Morning all.

    We have some blue sky and sunshine and some ominous grey clouds so who knows? It's certainly  not the May weather we had when we got married on this weekend 16 years ago that's for sure.

    Anyway, some Bank Holiday pleasures:

    1) Apart from a food shop we have stuck pretty much close to home, enjoying being back after our trip and the many pleasures of just pottering.

    2) The kids bought me some beautiful peonies as a thank you for taking little fella away. The pleasure was all ours but they are my favourite and just gorgeous.

    3) Given myself a good taking to and now back on a much healthier eating plan. Blubber will be shifted. The pleasure is the numbers on the scales are already going down but a long way to go yet. 

    4) Bedding plants and hanging baskets all done - we are ready for the balmy June weather....

    5) Roasted a huge chicken yesterday so lovely leftovers for tea tonight, quick and easy.

    Hope you get some decent Bank Holiday weather where you are.

    Good morning.  Sunny too.  My weather app keeps telling me that the temperatures are above average for the time of year.  Doesn't feel like it to me!

    Frith - I hope you managed to keep both your resolutions.  Your wood work should be looking very glossy by now.

    DfV - your glitter ball comment really resonated. Strange the things that trip us up!  It sounds as if your re-foresting project is coming along nicely.


    Not much happening really , which is always good news

    Met DD and fiance for breakfast

    Did some gardening but too cold for me.  I'm more of a wafting about with sun hat and trug gardener ( I don't actually have a trug but always fancied one.  Predictive text thinks I want a drug😂)

    Sorting out clothes for trip to Spain.  We rent a bungalow near our friends and there's a washer so don't need to take too much.  But I never iron on holiday.  It's the rule!  So clothes have to be ones that don't wrinkle too much.

    Have almost given up on tv completely.  All the new programmes we try seem to have a cast of thoroughly unpleasant people who could all jump off Leeds bridge for all I care.  Repeats of Vera it is then!

    Happy Tuesday everyone
