Good evening from Surrey. June arrived just before lunch and then afterwards we took June and Susan to West Green House. Had a nice walk round the gardens and then we were treated to coffee and cake.

We are now sitting down chatting, knitting and chillin'

Here's a few photos from this afternoon, lots of lovely dahlias and sunflowers of all shapes and sizes

Those dahlias are smashing. Susan and June look wonderful, you too Josephine! June don't forget to give Susan a hug from me. xoxoxo

Ugh. Hate when that happens. Yesterday I was using pepper and quickly realized it was open to the pour setting instead of the shaker opening. I know how to remove extra salt, but not pepper. I made a double recipe and did not pepper the second half. Turned out fine. Most times it is great when our guys try to help you.

My first job was working in a restaurant above a prestigious boys school. The students used to come in and unscrew the tops on the salt and peppers deliberately, causing patrons to have to order a second meal. Finally the owner laid down the law and said no matter who did it they would all be evicted permanently if it happened once more. They got the message!

Later I worked at the boys school in the office and it was required for them to bring my lunch and dinner trays from the kitchen... a job they hated because it was a long walk. I always smiled, because it seemed like payback!

Oh wowow. That is very smoky and unhealthy. As we are much farther away we only have a haze or slight fog because of those fires. Time for you to start wearing masks.

BC has declared a state of emergency now and is asking for help Federally to fight the fires. We just stay enclosed inside our houses. Although I am amazed to see some people let their children play in it and swim at the beach. Have to protect those little lungs too.

Mr J made coffee to start the day. Unfortunately he forgot to screw the lid on the diner type sugar dispenser. So coffee was a little sweeter this morning as was Mr. J for trying to help! xoxo

Thanks everyone for your kind comments, I'm not too sure about the colours and DH says they make it look dirty but it's done now. I call it a party cardi with all its colours. xx

It's very nice Jacky. xoxo

I was taking the second generation of that medication, Pregabalin, but had to stop taking it because of one of the side effects - fluid overload - I couldn't walk 10 paces, before my feet were so swollen, and my skin so sore, that I thought my skin was actually going to split; I was sleeping in my recliner to sleep, so that I could continue to breathe ..... it was a total nightmare, and I was developing Sleep Apnoea! Since I stopped taking that medication, I lost all of the fluid weight, I can now sleep in my natural position, and the new medication manages my pain levels really well! Thank goodness for that, now I am hoping that this medication continues to work for me! xoxoxo

Yes it was 10.30. Now I'm half way through the ironing, cushion covers are in the washing machine and I'm sitting having lunch. You would not believe how many feathers came out of the cushions, I had to take everything outside to the back to give them a good shake and vacuum the sofa and floor. I expect I will have to vacuum again after putting the cushions back into their covers.

Achoo! xoxo

Morning from my little corner of the world. I had an interesting day yesterday. After being disappointed with my doctor for the past 2 years I finally made a change. It is hard to change as I could always get someone worse than what I had. However, I think I made a wise decision. I was amazed at the advice she gave me on two problems I am dealing with. It was exactly the same advice I had suggested to my old doctor. Old doctor had different advice and dismissed what I felt was a good treatment. I hope I continue to like having her for a doctor. It is great nowadays that ones records can be transferred easily via computer.
