It's been blowing hard from the north all day. It certainly cures me of any desire to stop for groceries after work. All I want is to scurry home and get inside. I turned the heat up before even taking off my coat! Jupiter was very happy to come inside, flop down and chew on a toy.

I did take the time to haul the garbage down the driveway. I haven't done that for three weeks so it's good that I don't produce much.

I've been watching some shows on my computer. Alan Titchmarsh's Garden Secrets over the weekend. I've seen some of his older gardening specials and am always greatly impressed. He is a natural at presenting gardening in a way that would make almost anyone want to have a go. So, why - why - why !!!! does he do that awful talk show? I've only tried watching it once and I couldn't help cringing in embarrassment. Such a waste of talent.

I've also been watching Coppers. It's a fascinating look into a side of life that's completely alien to mine. I think the injustice would be the hardest part to handle. Even with all the abuse and disgusting things they put up with, I can barely imagine peeling hurt people and bodies out of smashed cars and knowing the responsible person would walk away with no consequences. Our system is far from ideal, but it's better than that. Even Janklow had to serve time for his driving.

I have always liked Alan Titchmarsh. I used to love to watch groundforce and actually met Charlie Dimmock when she came to open our 'Downtown Garden Centre'.
