Chelsea Flower Show 2014 (press day)

Wow, exited, understatement of the year! I've been accredited a Chelsea Flower Show Press pass for Monday 19 May. Yes really, chuffed to bits, good news comes to those that wait they say and they were so right. After Ian's car decided to break down this week, I'm without wheels for the next 4 days because I've lent him mine. Thankfully Jack has a car now and works near to my office so role reversal, my son is now driving me about.

Obviously I'll be writing tons up to the date of launch and posting lots of pictures after the day. The show dates are May 20–24 2014, further information can be found here and it will be on the BBC for the whole week with good old Alan Titchmarsh. As I haven't got a car this weekend I can quite happily say you will find me in the garden sorting out the compost bin, making wig wams and generally getting on with some pottering about. I will also post details of a small gardening themed give-away. Nothing grand but useful things I've been collecting for my lovely green fingered blog friends including some Crabtree and Evelyn Gardeners hand cream (my favourite at the moment).

How wonderful, I'm glad it came through for you. Funny what you say about the role reversal. My sister is hoping her son has passed his test by the time Christmas comes round so she can have a drink on the day. xx
