We paid our now weekly visit to St Andrewsyesterday it was a nice day but overcast. The picture above is of a barrow of plant that is always on the pavement opposite the entrance to a small garden centre which has its entrance up an alleyway. It changes each time we visit and is always lovely, and I thought you would like to see it.  I love when someone goes to a bit of bother to attract custom.  Did not fancy the book of the week this week with the Times but have noticed that Waterston's and Ottakers have both brought our special books for 99p too.  Today has been very hot here and I have had to come in even sitting under the big brolly I was overheating which is not very unusual for me I'm always too hot.  Like Stuart (Specimen Days) I have been reading next weeks TV programs. What I find so annoying is the fact that there is nobody bothering for those of us who don't watch football if there is football on one channel they have put a repeat on the other I am talking about the main terrestrial channels have not looked at the Satellite stations yet here's hoping I can find something there to watch.  I am planning to clear out cupboards and drawers during the world cup so all will be tidy by the end of it as my Stuart likes the football as you know any sport will do. This afternoon it is cycling on Euro sport. Don't mind that too much as he and our son have both raced on their bikes when they were young and both have been champions of the clubs. Sorry about the font thought I would have a change but don't like that one much so have gone back to my usual one its much clearer don't you think. Well I am nice and cool now as this room faces north and the temperature is only 71 so its very nice up here. Think I will pop  back outside and continue with my book. Hope you are all having plenty of sunshine today. Love

the flowers are so pretty.... thanks for sharing. It's raining here today but that is ok because we needed it and now I don't have to water :)  I hope your book gets interesting and you enjoy it. Sandra

Plenty of sunshine here too today, too much for my liking!
I'm not much of a one for sitting out in the garden, though I'm glad you're enjoying yourself out there reading :o)

Hi Joan,  I do prefer your usual font, I found the other one really hard to read.  There doesn`t seem to be much on the TV for us that don`t really want to watch all the football.  I love a good drama but they seem to be in short supply at the minute. :o)

I hope you can find something on your TV to watch instead of football (ugh!). I love the big floral display, it's nice that people still bother to make it look attractive. Have a lovely day/evening! Jeannette xx
