Day 100 of poetry & jumpers. Back in March, Dame Judi Dench joined me for our first poem: “The Owl & the Pussycat” by Edward Lear. Today, Nala, the neighbour’s cat, has joined me for “Macavity the Mystery Cat”by T S Eliot.

@howardsandrac I purchased a garden hose because of the heat wave and a very dry garden .. I think I am to blame as I haven’t had to use it since .

Rain, rain - chair seats indoors, no sitting out in the #garden today

Didn’t know much about Ben Carson but he’s very impressive, being so rational and sensible, a great guy - pity about his Party. #Marr

The dream came true! Back on our perch, Alex... #LFC19

Our microwave is 36 years old and still working fine. An old friend. Should I be worried about any safety hazards? #health

When I wrote this piece in 2018 the contradiction within secularism (materialism vs. transgenderism) hadn’t yet broken out into a public battle. Thanks to @jk_rowling that has now happened. This battle will run and run.

Here's something we can get behind in #Kent - English Wine Week. Here's how you can buy the county's award-winning #wine and even stroll around some orchards now @ChapelDownWines @HushHeath @BiddendenVine @simpsonwine @macknade

Wonderful, all the tributes to Dame Vera. She must have felt so proud, hearing the Queen's closing words of covid speech. My hub meeting her in 2005, at 60 yr end of war ceremony, said she was surrounded by adoring old soldiers, but still had time for him!
