 It was 14C here yesterday. All weekend we have had to put the heating on every now and then to take the chill off. 

I was ill Saturday night:( Couldn’t sleep so was up reading when my guts started growling like a huge waterfall. 20 minutes later I risked leaving the loo and getting back into bed. Oddly enough I didn’t have any cramps.

However, all through a rather fretful night, both feet kept cramping, 3 times each. I can deal with that but then my lower legs started. Luckily I could stop those by shooting out of bed and stretching.

I was fine Sunday but very tired. Slept like a log last night but still tired today. Hopefully tomorrow I will be fine.

 Goodness me it’s cold, 13C and wet. I washed clothes yesterday and they still haven’t dried indoors. The heating was put on for half an hour to take the chill out the house and hopefully, finish drying them.

Back Border

 I nipped outside last night, ahead of the predicted thunderstorms (didn't happen), to photograph my new back border. There are 9 of these huge self sown foxgloves in white, cream, pale yellow, magenta, pink and white and pink:

These two are about 7' tall!
Gentle rain fell overnight plus for a few hours this morning. Worse is still predicted so I am hoping they and the rest of the garden, doesn't get flattened.
