Hello - I'm back again - the GP surgery have just phoned to change my appointment to Monday as the Doc I was seeing is off sick I'm not an urgent case so I've got another appointment for Monday afternoon. And I've got a visit this side of the city at 10.30 and some TOIL owing, so I'll stay home and eat toast for a bit
For heaven's sake folks.......decisions, decisions. I don't want to draw attention to my knighthood.......I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT MY HUMBLE BUT WELL DESERVED ROYAL RECOGNITION.
(I intend to put some stickers for my windscreen.....baron Verdun, sir Verdun.....it's difficult )
Oops! Dishes to do
Haven't you got a flunky?
We,ll just have to watch i ton telly Fairygirl.I,m a bit worried I won,t recognise Verdun,will she be the one on one knee kneeling under a raised sword?
Supermarket for me, such joy.
The B&Q 10% for over 60's do you have to apply in store for a card or what? Other half is 60..so that means fun Wednesdays for us.
Get some stuff for me KEF- 15 fence posts, cement and sand - I'm not old enough for the 10% off- only feel like it when I get up in the mornings...
and I'm only 27...
Gilly- we won't have any prob spotting Verd...the cloak's a giveaway...
KEF,just go into B & Q with proof of age and fill in form,they will give you a card immediately,there is also a fairly new scheme for over 60,s at B & Q seperate to the Weds card,whee they Issue you with a paper membership and you can use this other than Weds,it does,nt always give a discount but they E-Mail each week with special deals such as 20% off plants 30% of decking for 2-3 days during that week,You also go into a draw each time that paper membership voucher is used.
We saved 20% on paint a few weeks ago.
Hope this is useful.
Morning all. Going to fetch a little pergola with a bench under it today. Never got OH anything much for his birthday back in Feb. but he'd like somewhere to sit in the garden that isn't a chair at the table on the terrace where we eat. I never have time to sit in the garden and if I did I'd be fretting about weeds etc!
It will be under a tree with dappled shade, old stone wall behind it on edge of lawn. What shall I grow up the sides? OH fancies clematis. There are so many and some like sun and some shade.
That'll be lovely BL, but sometimes you should sit on it with a glass of something cool and white, and point out easy tasks to the Under Gardener
Right, off to work now - have a good day everyone - see you later
That pergular seat is almost perfect for something I would like to do by my door it would be great to have my clemitis climbing something like that either side of the door
I know it's late to say goodmorning, but I had one of my 'quiet' times this morning. It's when I can't get my brain into gear, so do nothing. Still toying with what to do. If I sit long enough, I will be ready for bed.
It isn't so sunny here but still warm.
I have someone coming to connect up my water feature this morning- afraid it meant I had to do a spot of hoovering ( sorry to be using bad words on here).
Going to my Mums later - my daughter is meeting me there so looking forward to that. Will stay a night or two. Mum is in Gosport in Hampshire.It will no doubt involve a visit to a GC
Bet Queenie won't have the joy of sitting in the car eating a Phipps pasty, safe away from the St Ives trained Seagulls. ( or have they relocated them for the day).
Hope the weathers good down there. In Nottingham it looks like its going to pelt it down with rain. It's gone awfully dark.
The man in the handy shop looked at me with 4 bundles of 8ft canes and said "are you sure you want 8ft canes" Yes I'm hoping the runners wil run up them this year instead of sulking until September like they did last year. The tomatoes will want new 6ft canes next week. Can't use the old ones because we had blight on the Toms as well as the taters last year.
I have metal canes for the tomatoes and when they had blight I wiped them down with surgical spirit and they didn't get blight the next year. I think blight is partly a weather thing. I also wipe secateurs with surgical spirit.
Well, you can tell I'm not right in the head today because I have been a domestic godess and haven't finished yet. It can be a dangerous job you know. Sent the TV flying, sucked up some wires and a sock, (didn't see it under the bed). Do you think it's time to take down Mother's Day cards?
Enjoy your break Bev.
Busy morning - usual weekly swim - well lesson about how to swim and keep fit, then we went and collected our caravan out of storage. It is totally empty because last year ot was so wet we did not want to risk mildew etc,. That means it need a thorigh inside clean and water whatnot needs sterilsing befor we go away. Away on wednesday so it had better warm up. Going to the Peak District.
Garden also needs doing, feel I really need to get plats into their places brfore I leave. Less watering for Son2 to do
