‘Now is the month of May-ing’ … says the song …. so now we can all frolic on the grass ….  
and when we’ve done our frolicking we can come here to chat, natter, share the bits and bobs of our lives and hold each other’s hands when needed … 
Comfy sofas always available, coffee and tea  is made and there’s warm cakes and biscuits … so whether you’re an old friend or new, everyone’s welcome here, so say hello, settle down and chat away …

    The first coffee of the day has been drunk … another is on its way … I slept like a log … I heard from @WonkyWomble yesterday that she’s feeling grotty with what sounds like a sinus thing … no temperature but poorly enough to submit to being put to bed with hot drinks and decongestant meds and told that her lovely hub is in charge. Hope she’s had a reasonable night and is feeling a bit better this morning … 🤗

    Hello @AnnaB 😊 and thank you … I imagine you’re busy with all your animals at this time of year … do you make your own hay?

    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    Morning, all, and welcome to May. I’m sure I was supposed to be up at dawn bathing my face in dew? Also toyed with the idea of getting up to see the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, but our views of the horizon are blocked in all directions by steep hills and trees. 
    Very light drizzle this morning, so I’m glad I got a bit of ground clearing done yesterday.

    I think @Hostafan1 was probably up at dawn bathing in the dew ...  ;)

    and while we're talking about esoteric activities, don't forget folks, next Saturday is World Naked Gardening Day again ... remember how much fun you had last time ... B)

    Morning all.

    I won't be naked gardening unless it's over 30°!

    I woke at 6am for the loo and the Dawn Chorus was in full swing, including dratted Cockerel who was sitting on the fence. I clapped my hands and he flew off and left me in peace, so went back to sleep until nearly 8.

    Cloudy today, forecast says we may get a little rain on Wednesday.

    I keep getting messages from the burglar alarm company to say there is a power cut at my French house, followed by emails to say the power is on. Nice electrician has just sent an email to say they have been doing the rewiring for the last 2 days, just one day's work left.

    Not such a lovely May morn here - overcast and a bit chilly.  But it was celebrated by our local Morris side on the common and a friend posted a video on FB so - that'll do.

    No need for me to bathe my face in dew - my fellow steward at the exhibition yesterday said I had very good skin! We were talking about university and bemoaning the fact that students don't have it nearly as good as my generation did for grants.  I then had to explain that I am old and in fact went as a mature student and got an even bigger grant as I had a daughter doing her A levels at the same time.  Turns out that we were at the same university - she much more academic than me, having done a different course and now a lecturer at UEA!

    What a treasure your electrician is in France @Busy-Lizzie!

    I didn't bathe in due, but got rained on walking to and from Worzle. Does that count?
