Old Style Daily Saturday 20 May 2023

Good morning folks - it's been a while since I started the thread. 

Yesterday I noticed that my beautiful rose bush at my front door had not only lots of buds but huge numbers of green fly 😱 so I buzzed into town to buy a spray bottle. Once I'd filled it with soapy water I used it everywhere on my precious roses. The bottle only shoots out a single stream which is a bit rubbish, I need to get one which actually sprays a mist. That'll be for today. 

I'd ordered a trial box of bamboo and recycled cardboard toilet rolls, tissues and kitchen roll which arrived in the early afternoon. It's interesting stuff which is actually very soft. I'll test them out later. 

This morning I'm heading down to Glasgow as I've a couple of chores to sort out. On the way I'm meeting up with the lovely Camelot for breakfast 🎉 think that we're trying a different place this time. I'll write more about Seoul later, especially about the giant pink bear and it's smaller 'cousins'. 

Meanwhile, happy Saturday to all.
