Jodie in useful guard dog shocker!

I was weeding in the back garden this morning, with the radio on, when Jo went into the house and started barking.

When I went to see what she was worried by, I found the postman in the porch wanting me to sign for a parcel.

I'm being very crap at updating, recently, aren't I?

I had my second session with my new Pilates instructor last week, and could barely walk the following day: I may have to ask her to push me a little less hard.... On the other hand, I'd done nothing but sit in a car and walk at museum-visiting-speed for a week, so maybe not so surprising.

Thank you to everyone who made it along to our BBQ at the weekend, it was lovely to see everyone (even if it did pour with rain the whole time and thus was more of an Aga than a BBQ!). We have excessive quantities of beer left in the polypin, creative suggestions welcome. Do you think it would be a good or bad for the plants if I used it to water them...?

Someone left a copy of A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas in the kitchen: anyone claiming it?

Postman spotting is definitely useful skill. If you can train her to sit on delivery/utilities people until you can actually get to door, you'll also thwart their evil plans to shove "sorry you were out" cards through postbox whilst you're halfway down stairs.

Had great time at party, and it least it was proper monsoon, not some pesky little mizzle. As passenger wot had to open gates on drive down, I can testify. :0

I was about to say pretty much the same thing.
