So glad I decided to let the garden have its own way viz wild strawberries for ground cover. They really would cover everything if I let them, if I didn't keep them constantly in check. Not these babies though, we ate them for dinner and very good they were, too :o)

And then the heavens opened, and then my camera batteries died. :o)

For yea and verily, I be still living - should you have wondered.

To summarise; teh sun is shining, the temperatures well below zero; it looks as though we might be heading for a Real Winter this year - which would make a most pleasant change. Life isn't that bad, on the whole, for a wonder.

So how about you, my little darlin's? How is life treating you these days? Is your universe all rainbows and kittens or is she being a cheeky bitch? Speak to me, lil buddies!

...for old apple varieties for the garden, I find  Ellison's Orange. 'Intense rich aromatic flavour with a hint of aniseed'.

Sounds tasty. (o:

Man, you should see the state of things out there. And the sun be beating down but even so, it's awfully, awfully damp and manky and the gathering clouds threaten imminent Weather - but all forecasts say tomorrow's going to be worse so... No getting out of it that way. ::sigh::

But not even going to think about it til I've had some more coffee.


HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAYS to FRAYEN and JUSTMEJ. I hope your days sparkled with sugar-coated loveliness. Sorry I wasn't here for you but there it is, I expect you coped.

So there, that's me. The weekend beckons with its promise of olives and wine, the Who finale (squeak!) and more rain.
I hope you're all chilled and ready like a lightly-oaked Chardonnay and filled with the Friday-Night spirit of squee my lovelies. May it sparkle for you like Liberace after a good rub with a chamois and a liberal dousing of Windolene.

::blowing the Friday kisses::


Oh, and glancing at the little calendar-widget on my lappy, I see tis a HOLIDAY for my precious American Flist. I hope you're all having a super-shiny time. Eat... whatever strange things you lovely people eat on such occasions. Be happy. Stay drunk till Monday. Whatever floats your mysterious boat. XXX
