Mr Titchmarsh the God of Gardening, what a little Petal.
On Friday I am off to The Big City, Yes London.
To the Chelsea flower show. "Well I do live a rather sheltered life"
My Lovely Sister got us some tickets, which is actually my birthday prezzie.
I was the big 40 last month. Gosh did you hear that?...Sigh
I have been to Chelsea before, I love garden shows.
Last year I went to The Malvern Show, which was very good, and watched Chelsea on the box at home, but by the end of the week I wished I had gone, and there was one particular garden that kept catching my eye.
I loved everything about it, especially the symmetry, I like things to be in order.
I also liked the willow edging, it looked really neat. I used to prefer the modern, contemporary gardens with white walls and grasses, now I seem to go for the softer, pretty cottage garden's that have a more homely feel to them. Hey must be my age, I will be getting hot flushes next!
This year so far I really like the look of L'Occitane Garden.
It is based on an idea of a garden somewhere in Provence.
Definitely going to have a good nosey at that one.
The next one is the The Children's Society Garden.
It has a fab plunge pool, which I wouldn't say no to having in my garden.
Arrrh ...This is Andy Sturgeon's Garden, which he did for the Telegraph.
He got a gold for it and Best in show.
But the really sad things is I just read about him, and it said that his wife, who was only 37 died last year in her sleep, leaving three little people behind, how Sad is that?
The M&G garden, another one I will seek out.
Hopefully the sun will do it's best to shine on Friday, or a more likely story it will pour down.
So tell me, where has that lovely weather gone?
OK, my only dilemma now is what to wear!
Today I went shopping, as I fancied wearing a dress, I can forget last years clothes as my body has grown, quite a lot actually, and nothing seems to want to fit me.
Obviously this is a very good excuse for a shopping trip, but it does not fill me with feelings of great joy, rather the opposite, actually more feelings of dread, pure dread!
I hate trying clothes on at the best of times, but today I nearly had a fit, my God where has that fat women come from?
Hello this is my cubicle! Oh my it's not a big fat women taking over the whole mirror, it is in fact ME...!
I think that they must have installed magnified mirrors in all the shops, for my body seems to have doubled.
So needless least to say I am going on a diet, well OK, when I return from my weekend in London.
Yes, I will be on a mission, and the juicer will be back in action, it won't know what has hit it.
Woah..Sorry about that rant, where did that came from???
Right off to make the din dins, best make mine a tinsey wincey portion then.
I am Laughing here now, Hannah has just come in, home from a shopping trip and is showing me her purchases, "Oh that's a nice top Hannah " "No mum it's a dress...!"
