OMG look at the wrinkles!!

What a shock when I saw this photo, still I suppose its not that bad for a 74 year old. Wonder if I should have a face lift before the wedding??? Joking of course, could not afford it for a start, people have to put up with what I look like, my face is lived in!!

A fine morning, we went round to the little chapel for coffee......Nothing done in the garden this morning. I have decided to get another bag of wood mulch and spread on the herbaceous border, will top it up with compost from B & Q. hopefully the worms will drag it down and help to break up the soil. I doubt I will live long enough to see friable soil, but you never know. It will be a case of no dig unless I am putting plants in or moving them.

Quiche and salad tonight for supper, it should have been belly pork, but I forgot to take it out of the freezer yesterday, so Saturdays dinner tonight. Pork on Saturday, or may be tomorrow.

I need to make the lemon drizzle cake for the chaps at the woodyard. We have a bag to take back and I am going to order another bag of wood chippings. before I spread them I need to put in and move some plants in the border.

Decided to do a bit more weeding this afternoon, the weeds seem to be getting bigger by the minute. I also need to tie in the clematis into the trellis and put in the rose tree which we are going to piggyback on two trellis's.


  1. I think the photo you dislike is a matter of the position of your head. I'm sure you look great. Cameras often catch the most unflattering sides of us. A smile makes up for a myriad of other issues. Keep Smiling, Dear Friend.

  2. I always get a shock when I see a photo of myself. Its whats inside that counts - and taking Lemon Drizzle cake to the chaps at the woodyard.

  3. I agree with Barb in that wrinkles show where decades of smiles and laughter have been and the camera flash causes shadows that don't usually show. Fret not! You're certainly holding a sweet baby boy!

    How thoughtful of you to make a lemon drizzle cake for the men at the woodyard. That won't go amiss at all!

    I have a lot of weeding to do, but need to make things presentable indoors first.

    Back to it ...
