What a beautiful day apart from the chilly wind it has been. I thought I might chance it and plant some SUMMER BULBS but I was distracted and found myself moving a small unknown TREE in a pot to the side of the front door.

Which made me think of the ROSE I bought when my mother died and wanted to plant in a metal planter of hers, to sit on the patio.

When I looked in the metal planter which I thought was empty I found some TREE LILLY bulbs that came from mums. So I decided to get them in the ground as they were starting to shoot.

Which made me fetch the fork and dig up an ORNAMENTAL GRASS ,to make room for the LILLIES but realised there was room for a ROSE cutting that I had taken last year and now needed planting, which I did.

The ORNAMENTAL GRASS I popped in a tub for my dear friend Theresa.

Which made me remember the HELLIBORE I had promised her, so I dug that up too and popped it into a tub.

By which time I decided I had done enough so sat in the SUMMER HOUSE with a glass of WHITE WINE and a TUNA roll.

Sometimes I think I am a slave to DISTRACTION!

Yours Distractedly



The last of the visitors have gone, Ronald is making a fish pie and I am sat with my feet up enjoying a cheeky little German whiteimage
I am resisting the impulse to rip the Christmas cards off the walls and pack the tree and decorations away. Although my dear mum has passed, her words and SUPERSTITION are programmed into me. I know that I just cannot take anything down until 12th Night for fear of bad luck; even though I am a rational lady and it is 2014!

Hirsute Roley has taken himself off to bed, sulking because everybody has left and the last of the turkey has gone. I don’t think Ronald is sulking, it just takes him about 3 hours to make a fish pie. Oh well time for another glass.

Time to look forward, I asked Ronald if he had made any NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS. He said “no” so I gave him some; after all everyone needs something to aim for and if he has none of his own he can do mine!

I am also considering our holiday this year, proof that I have been brain-washed by all those holiday adverts that start on Boxing Day.

TAI CHI for Ronald and me, starting tomorrow, gentle exercise, just what we need for our post-Christmas bodies besides I think we need to get our CHAKRAS in sync. He’s been selfishly looking after his own CHAKRA during the festive seashon

Goodnesh don’t know where the wane went but the fash pie ishn’t heerr yet might ash will fishin the bottle
