There is little to interest me on the TV at present. Tonight there are two programmes, but I am not a sports lover, nor a serial lover, so my choice is limited. I do enjoy the recent spate of programmes about the Royal Family, although some are repeats. Therefore I trawl You Tube to find something r...
I buy my books from Amazon, amazing bargains normally. Recent buy was a Daphne du Maurier's tome of Rebecca (which I have had for years in paperback), Frenchman's Creek, My Cousin Rachel and Jamaica Inn. I shall read them all again in a few months' time.

I zoom and...

They don't come every year, but this year they are swooping down. yike* Yesterday I found bits of moss over the back door mat. When I looked up, I found some bird was building a nest above my door. I man...
Mo, did you sow a packet of wild flower seeds in your orchard, or did you buy separate plants? My front lawn has a very different type of grass to the one at the back, and I have vetches, daisies and bugle which come up after a couple of weeks. It is really attractive. I have small violet plants gro...
