You can’t be a gardener and have good nails!!

I took 5 minutes to give myself a manicure this morning….then spent the afternoon in the garden and broke two nails almost to the quick 🙂



I sorted out the pots on my patio, adding some cheap bedding plants I got in Aldi for about £2.50 each to the bulbs already growing. I do this every year. Bedding plants get lost in my garden so I pot them up and they make a nice display.

Plants and daffs

Hopefully, they will look more like this in a month or so (well, maybe not exactly like that):

The student arrived today. We were expecting her between 2 and 3 pm. Me and Mr S decided to move the lounge around and had books, cushions and general mess everywhere, and she turned up at 1 o’clock!!! Fortunately she came in just for half and hour and had a coffee with us, then met the rest of the group for a tour of the town, so we had time to sort things out.

I have done a traditional British roast for dinner, with fruit crumble and custard for pudding. Let’s  hope she has a good appetite 🙂

  1. I seem to have luck with my bails on the plot. It seems to irritate a lot of people I know that I spend the weekends puddling about in the dirt and still have good nails on Monday
