Number two son phoned,had tried twice earlier in the week,before he started his computer conference.
Long chat ,re US elections etc.

Not hungry so just a cuppa  and  then out in the  glorious sunshine to prune the purple hebes , front garden.
Lots of dead stalks from Aquiligia moved , trimmed fuchsia ,sprayed a pretty plant that showed evidence of being seriously nibbled, can’t remember its name ,variegated leaves and pink stems also another green and white speckled.
Put the hebes trimmings in pots ,son wants some .Hope they root.
Lots of chats ,dogs saying hello, and a good feeling of having achieved a lot
My Sister phoned , has family in Australia, Sydney .
Her Grand daughter has Obsessive Compulsive syndrome, very sad ,did not stay the course degreewise,,but has just secured a job starting salary of £35,000,
She must have really shone through.I am glad for her.

I understand the bulb problem ,so I put mine in big pots and can move them when finished .However you don’t get that natural “drifting “ that is so attractive.
Dairy diaries arrived, handy presents to have in.
Grandson phoned to say his bank balance has suddenly gone up. ;D

Well folks another week gone ,they do go quickly to say we are pretty bored.
Might phone sister in law tonight ,O.H ‘s younger sister, she was my bridesmaid ,the only one as my College friend was stranded in the I.O.M. due to very stormy weather.

Mr Rat has made no further visits as far as I can tell.

Well Corrie now, the decision to switch off the life support of the little boy.

Be in touch again ,cheerio,
