We happened to see a little bit of Springwatch last night and I was delighted to see a piece about the RSPB reserve just outside Middlesbrough, I mentioned it here in response to a comment when we'd been to Peterlee the other month.
I bought some furniture polish. I haven't used polish for years and years, but I just really wanted some so I bought some and now the house smells of almonds.
The sun has come out!
And despite a couple of days being battered and bashed by the wind and the rain I still have some roses. Huge, very yellow and gorgeously scented. What could be better?
