    Gosh it feels like a long time to wait, at least the clocks go forward next weekend and then soon April 1st.

    Have you any plans?

    I have work on the 1st and 2nd but after this I'll be at B&Q buying paint so I can finally make some progress with my house. I'd also like to fix up the front lawn, the pictures of yours have given me some inspiration and now I have itchy feet, I'm eager to get started!

    @philly1991 that sounds like a good plan....just to let you in on a little secret... @Cumberland doesn’t require a lawnmower for his grass, just a dustpan and brush (or a hoover)....wish my lawn looked as pristine as his but sadly mine is of the need to mow and weedy variety.....must do something with it this year to improve it and get rid of the lumps and bumps....good luck with yours
    ....am thinking it is going to be very busy out and about after the 1st April.....also think that is Easter weekend so watch out for the Easter Bunny:)

    I like your thinking, maybe I'll wait a little while for the hype to die down and spend the weekend eating chocolate instead, after all it is easter. I'm definitely feeling a little fence, and plenty of flowers. Also a little hanging basket. I've found some bee flowers hidden in a cupboard so I shall be scattering those. And a bird bath would be lovely.

    2 of the bronze Cordylines in tubs have not survived the winter frosts (the green ones are ok) but the 2 bronze ones leaves all falling out and when I tugged at the main stem it just fell to bits all mushy

    So started from scratch and dug them both out - easier than I thought as they’d been in the tubs nearly 4 years

    Put them in garden recycling and filled up tubs with compost so now need replacements - that will mean a visit to the garden centre when we’re free from shielding

    We enjoyed some time with the little girls in the garden on Wednesday. I now have chalk murals everywhere. Good to get some sun. Didnt venture in there yesterday as was a bit nippy but went to Tesco instead and might have put some more baby clothes in the trolley. Daughter was saying yesterday that she wont have to buy anything as people were being so generous.

    I had some good news yesterday the diet function of my life seems to be helping my diabetes. My HbA1C was 48 so doc seemed happy with that. On the negative side might possibly be an issue wth the old kidneys so repeat tests for those and then I guess we shall see. I'm not worried, no point worrying over someting that is only an IF (someone remind me early hours of the morning when I am worrying)

    This weekend we're stripping ........ wallpaper. And taking down the shelving hubby so easily put together upon direction from his wife who cant wield a drill (I'm a feeble female cough cough)

    See you on the other side of the weekend
