    G'night all. Meant to post again after saying hello from Kew, but then got caught up in the day. It was lovely, will see if any of my pics are worth sharing tomorrow.

    Good morning to September. Well done Obelixx, Dove will be impressed with the early action!

    Not usually up this early but the kittens were keen for early breakfast so happy to oblige (i.e. stop them running round the bedroom like lunatics!). OH has busy day ahead so trying to allow him a full night's sleep. 

    Forecast clear and sunny for this first day in September so will watch the sunrise and maybe take some cuppas back to bed.

    Good morning all image Thanks Obelixx ((hugs)) very efficient! 

    Still snuggled in Hostas guest room   ...  slept like a log after a wonderful meal and lots of chat. We had a good drive down and arrived as you know, a bit earlier than planned image But as the sun was shining we thought it'd give us a good chance to walk around the garden ... However Hosta has a sort of built in "sprinkler system" image that comes on as soon as you're at the furthest point from the house ... Drowned rats had nothing on us!!!  image

    He's done so much since we were here last ... It looks amazing despite his protestations... Even if it was a bit squelchy underfoot in a couple of places. image

    Chicky ... Best of luck ... Hope the weather is kind to you and hope you enjoy it ((hugs))

  • Morning all.

    Chicky??? Sponsored???? What's your good cause? How do I do it? How did I miss it? Sake!!! Good luck for'll be great!

    I knew you were doing your walk but not why. Sometimes I wonder about myself...other times I know perfectly well.

    Enjoy your Friday.

    Morning all - well done Obs - and afties Pat image

    September - where did the rest of the year go? image

    Hope it's drier for you today Dove  image

    Ppauper - if chicky doesn't get round to filling you in - I'll message you with the details. 

    I might be up and away at that time too so I'll wish you good luck now too chicky, and I'll 'walk' with you all on my car journey, and on the hill. You'll be fine  image

    I've hung washing out - am I being optimistic? It's notlooking brilliant, but supposed to improve.

    Quick look round before I go to work. Have a lovely day everyone.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Looks like the mods are up. It was just getting ...... peculiar?

     Maybe a cyber attack from North Korea?

    Foreign students practising their translation skills?   but why do they post it online?
