Pegged washing out early this morning and it dried. Visited hubby at the nursing home. He said he wasn't sure if I would make it bless him. Eating a turkey dinner, then some pud. He was watching some American programme that he just wouldn't have entertained pre dementia. He then slept for a while, after letting me put some nivea on his face as it looked dry. We then watched snooker. Amazing how he remembers some of the rules, but can't remember what he had for dinner! My SIL picked me up, and I had a delicious lamb dinner with them. Stayed until 8.45, and home in time for Line of Duty. Watching whilst I'm typing. So that was my day. Hubby contented enough, and I feel lucky that my family care lots for us both.
Hi Charm,
This morning S decorated the cake he made yesterday. He loves cooking and is very good at it. We went to our friend's house for an Easter BBQ. We hadn't seen them for ages, so it was good to catch up. The cake went down well. S loves visiting but socialising wears him out so he had a snooze on the sofa once home.

Pet66, sounds like a good day. S loves snooker, watching it, playing it and especially performing trickshots.

Hiya Melly, Oh I bet the cake was gorgeous. Fantastic S like's cooking. You know what I have a bbq it's sat in the box under the stairs since 2005 lol..I really must get it out this year. It's gardening I hate and boy have I got a garden and a half to do :) Xx
My Easter was just dreary as every other day.
Charm, I have half an acre. The flower beds are gone, the fruit trees all gone. Now I have a wide patio across the back of the house, and "vegetable troughs" with hydrangeas and other flowers. 30 minutes once a week or two on a garden tractor, job done. Visitors only see the tidy lawn, don't miss the borders, and compliment us on the garden! Gardening is one of those jobs to be minimised to make more time for you.
Bowlingbun- I've just had a bright pink Hydrangea and a blue one to go in. Not sure if they will maintain their colours - I thought it was more to do with soil acidity but we shall see. All I need now is a tractor LOL.

Hi Henrietta,
Apparently some varieties are more likely to keep their colour than others, there is some stuff yo41526093u can get, but I'm not that bothered what colour they are really. However, I'd really recommend some fertiliser granules, and also if they are in pots, some ericaceous compost. Together, they seem to lead to some amazing growth. Obviously, where we live on the South Coast helps, but I now have lots of flower buds showing on the most sheltered plants.
As for the tractor, eldest son had a second hand one for years, which M inherited after No.1 passed his tractor driving test on his 16th birthday (and subsequently drove his tractor to school!!!)
M became very depressed when he realised he would never be able to drive on the road, but we'd saved up his income support so he had a brand new garden tractor, his pride and joy for the last 20 years. £1,000 over 20 years with only about £300 spent on it was money well spent. It still looks like new as it lives in the brick built steam engine shed. As soon as M comes home he cuts the grass, he's got two trailers as well and a "lawn scratcher/scarifier) so he drives round and round after the lawn is actually cut.
