full week last week, this week will have the conference in the middle of

really nice meal out of it with my brother and his girlfriend also in
attendance. I got given a huge pile of plants from Mum, including 2
roses she had bought me to celebrate the new garden. I've planted those
out already (under script orders!) but I'll be planting the rest out
tonight. I'm still trying to keep ahead of the dandelions as they come

be something to sort out on the bank holidays.
Hopefully, this will be a fairly quiet week - I need to get a bit caught
