Good afternoon, can’t believe its Friday already it has been such a quick week. Weather wise we have been very lucky up here warm sunshine most days with just a shower or two on Tuesday. Have been watching Springwatch on BBC2 and they have had some terrible evenings and Simon King up in the Highlands has been having a great time.

Stuart has been on an outing with his art class today not far just down to the side of the loch but the sun was shining and it was warm he usually freezes on the outings but today he did not even need his sweater on.

I have wasted a lot of time catching up on BB from last night I recorded the first program last night and whizzed through it as it is so noisy with all the screaming and cheering I like it better once it settles down a bit not that I will see a great deal of it as Stuart hates it so I just pop in and out as I like to know what is happening.

All the plants we have planted this spring are doing well along with the hanging baskets and the tomatoes so it should be looking great just shortly. We have a small herbaceous border down one side and at last this year it has come to fruition and will be in flower soon just the Lupins and the Bleeding Heart are out at the moment.

Our Grand daughte will be seven tomorrow and we are going to her Birthday party this year we are going to Active Kids where there are all sorts of things for them to do like go carting etc will tell all next time. Ellen has been there often to parties and thinks its great . The weather forecast is set fare so I hope they have it correct as it is all outside and I don’t fancy standing in the rain for two hours. Think that’s about it for today so till next time take care.      Love

Joan, I just have to tell you I fell in love with your book and was able to get a copy of it on Amazon for only 81 pence!!!  It arrived yesterday and is just lovely.  Todd fell in love with it as well.  Thanks so much for sharing this wonder with us!  I hope your grand-daughter has a lovely birthday!!
