As a self indulgent treat during my convalescence, I ordered the box set of Downton Abbey. I had series one and two, but priced individual series up, and the box set was cheaper in the long run. How I am enjoying the timelessness of it. The beautiful costumes and hairstyles, the put me downs, the pl...
I love this couple and their amazing versatility.
Last night Angel restored and gave advice on a doll's house, which brought back memories for me. When I branched out from home at twenty one, my doll's house and all my dolls were given to a local childrens' home, but I spent hours with them.
Yes Sandy, I do get Drama, in fact I watch more Freeview than the standard programmes. Some things I plan to watch on BBC, ITV, etc are not aired until nine in the evening, and I invariably end up asleep before the end.
Thank you everyone. The stockings are miserable, and the MacMillan nurse told me that I will have to endure them for at least another four weeks. My wound has not completely healed, which is disappointing, the assortment of District Nurses come to give me a daily injection, some say one thing, some ...

I certainly do not wish that to happen to my garden, apart from a small wild area under the plum and apple trees, where I have hyacinths, primroses, cowslips, ox eye daisies, aconites and ragged robin. We planted all of the flowers several years ago. My rasps are litt...

I have written about this on DTL Daily, however, he tackled the unresponsive flower bed, strimming the patchy grass down, and using topsoil and lawn sand to try and improve it. After much raking and tamping down, he finally sowed grass...
Thank you for the information, Michael. Last year I had a bees nest and a wasps nest in the roof of the workshop. I did get a local man in to remove them, as they terrified me. I am hoping that they will not return, as you indicated.
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. "The Duchess" by Penny Junor was recommended ...
