Do you remember me saying that we were going to use inverted water bottles as a watering aid whilst we go off in the caravan?

 Disaster! :/  I thought that maybe we ought to try one out as an experiment to see how long it took for the bottle to empty. Result? It emptied in less than an afternoon so will be useless..... just like my idea.....On to plan B....DD will pop in a couple of times a week and give them all a good soaking and our lovely neighbour will water our flower pots at the front.  They will all have to take their chances, I'm afraid...

The last couple of days have been sultry and hot culminating in a thunderstorm on Wednesday which caused heavy localised flooding and a downpour again yesterday teatime with distant claps of thunder to boot.  Perhaps things will cool down a little and give our poor abandoned plants a chance to survive.

I'll be taking a break from blogging for a couple of weeks as I will have no internet access and I don't possess a smartphone (why would I :0) ?)

Take care all of you and enjoy the lovely weather when you can.

Thanks everso for popping in x


  1. I've used the water bottles for the weekend the trick is to freeze them so they last longer

  2. Have a good holiday, good tip Kate.
