Well, thanks for the thought Pam. Really kind of you.
TT what a wonderful idea- I'm sure Verdun would love to put us all up- we should make it a weekend this year then arrange for a week or two next year .
I do wish that I could do more IT things- the awful thing to admit is I taught computer studies about 30 years ago. Worse still I taught IT about 5 or 6 years back. Looked up what I was supposed to be doing then arrange for one of the geeky boys to teach the rest!!
Bev, I learned to type on a black Imperial typewriter at school!! Taught myself how to use a computer as that's what was in use when I returned to work many years later. Even taught myself Desktop publishing as boss at the time decided it would be a good idea to have all the teaching modules done 'in-house'. It's the techi side I get stumped on. Just can't seem to understand it. If something goes wrong or doesn't work for me, panic sets in.
I really must go and get dressed. Had such a lot I was going to do today but so far just been on the 'Map' and chatting.
Talk of exams - when my daughter and friends finished thier GCSE's us parents had a we survived exams party. Such a stressful time for all invoved
Keep having heavy rain showers here. Just dashed out and positioned new obelisk with OH shouthing through the window 'left a bit, straighten a bit, not right, move position a bit' It is now in position in the jewell bed to give it some height., just need to find the clematis I want - I know should have bought it yesterday (don't ask)
Will attempt the map but tried yesterday without success.
Sorry - welcome Pamela, I just pop in occassionally. I usd to read the posts and say nothing then one day entered a post. hooked now. Loads of advice and some smiles along the way.
Good morning Matty - for some reason Google wouldn't let me put myself on the map but Nutcutlet put me on - she's a kind soul ask her and let her know where you are and I'm sure she'll put you on when she gets a moment from admiring her paeonies Isn't it a brilliant idea?
Hi Matty2 - it's really addictive isn't it?!
Hi everyone and welcome Pamela14
Im also useless with computers etc and I did have a go with the map but no luck I'm afraid. Would someone be so kind as to add me? I hate to be left out lol!!!
Im in South Glos halfway between Gloucester and Bristol, don't know how detailed the map is but I'm in the village of Tytherington, nearest town is Thornbury. I would be very grateful and there's a virtual cake flying around for who ever takes pity on me
When Verdun says yes to an onslaught of visitors count me in.....I don't mind top and tailing
P.S. sorry! Good luck to all taking the exams
Matty I meant to say yesterday I envy you that obelisk- so much nicer and more practical than the ones I have.
Good afternoon all,
Welcome Pamela. You must be a lovely lady with a name like that.
I managed to put myself on the map yesyerday but on checking I'd disappeared. Who nicked my balloon? Back on now.
Hi all- I'm home!!!
Welcome Pamela - you don't have to be mad to be on here- but it helps...
My wand isn't working-here's what we got an hour ago...
Fairygirl please don't go waving that wand anywhere near my direction. Bright but breezy here today.
hi there Woo2, Pottie Pam (a lady of taste I'm sure!) and Fairygirl!
Bright, windy and trying on the odd shower over my way today
It's ok-I'm just going to get on a train to visit Verd instead....
And I'll chuck the wand out the window on the way
Fairygirl,your wand worked for me after your wandl went too far over to Verdun in Cornwall the fairy dust drifted back to Somerset and we have had some sunshine!!
Have managed to mow the lawn and pot up some petunias ,which I am leaving in the greenhouse in view of torrential rain forecast tomorrow.
Afternoon peeps, YEAH IM ON THE MAP!!! A big thank you to 'John' for putting me on there......what a gent! virtual cake on the way
Fairygirl - what is that lovely, bright green plant in the tall terracota pot in your photo?
Been making path and border and stained my raised bed today as well as mapping.
It's Carex oshimensis 'Evergold' Pamela. Have a couple of them -very useful in a shady area but they also take a fair bit of sun. A lot of my stuff is in pots as I've recently moved and starting again
They're great in all sorts of locations-beside ponds, mixed borders etc.
You've been busy blackest! What did you decide on with your 'box cones' formal bed?
Pam- should have said the carex is creamy gold with green edging. This is a slightly better pic:
