Hot, hot, hot!

Phew! It's baking here today. And guess where I'm going to be for the next two days... yup, in a marquee!! I'm sweating just at the thought of it...

Talking of which, when I was little, I thought the rhyme went:

Horses sweat,
Men propose...

Anyway, it's Portishead Flower Show tomorrow and Saturday. Portishead is the next town to Clevedon, so it's very local. So local, that we have been down today and set up the stand, so that we don't have so much to do tomorrow (when we're selling from 2 to 8). It felt SO strange driving away from the show ground leaving all our precious stock. There is overnight security, but even so, I shall be itching to get back there and check everything is OK. It will be a long day tomorrow as we have to be there from 12 for the 'judging'! And then Saturday is from 10 to 6:30. Think I'm going to be truly cream crackered on Sunday...

Good bit of family news: Tom passed his grade 6 keyboard exam - with distinction. We're very proud of him.

George continues to make progress. When we saw him yesterday, he was completely tube free! Which was great. He is starting to get some movement in his legs now and is having two physio sessions a day. There is talk that he may be able to go home the week after next. Fingers crossed.

Expect it will be next week before I get back to the blog, so have a lovely weekend, everyone, and stay cool!

Love, hugs and kisses to all.
