FG, winter has returned here. Have just put heating on as I can't get warm.
Is 'herbology' a new subject or does your daughter speak like my granddaughter where she rolls words into each other. I am constantly asking her to repeat what she says. I blame it on the programmes she watches.
No Tina-she's doing forensics so it's essentially all the stuff that you can grow that's poisonous- it was a very short exam!
Other daughter watches too many American shows so if we have a carry out (pizza type) she calls it 'take out'......
Freezing cold wind here today. Never know what to wear when i go out
Well, there you go FG, Learn something new every day. Young lady couple of doors away is studying to be a forensic scientist. Long job. Don't think her mother will ever be taking any money off her!!
My granddaughter can do a wonderful American accent. Better than her English one.
FG, I've got the photo now
Just looked it up FG. Feel like a right wally now. Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble.
art- little empire biscuits- they were very tasty!!
It's ok Tina- I thought she was making it up too! All very Agatha Christie...
Was determined to be first today.
Going to bed now.
Good morning all weather a lot cooler this morning and no sunwell my last day at work today then off till Tuesday so plenty of time in the garden & greenhouse. I will make my plan of attack at work today for the weekend hope the weather picks up again for the weekend have a good day all and remember the weekend is for gardening everyone if your not on holiday.
Good morning Andy & all. 2 degrees o/s, sun out but certainly a nip in the air.
No idea what I'm doing today, haven't woken up yet.
Tina, I'm impressed!
Morning TT !!
FG - glad your girl's exams went ok yesterday - do they have a bit of a break before the next ones ?
GG - your garden is looking great already - love the structure. Looking forward to some pictures when the plants start doing their thing.
Sunny here now, but downpours forecast. Fingers crossed for a better weekend.
Morning KEF - posts crossed !
Morning all. Hi chick- oldest has finished hers - they were all this week apart from first one and youngest has last one next Wed. They seem happy enough with how they went thanks.
Cold here and we had heavy sleety hail showers last night so hope today is a bit nicer as I'd like to get some rails on fence- got posts being delivered.
Sunshine and blue skies at the moment,but grey clouds beginning to form and it is quite windy and colder.
Yesterday went to GC for OH to get some pond plants ,just leaving when someone said to me that a clearance section round the back had just opened.Well it would have been rude not to look! and they had reduced most stuff to 50p,We grabbed a large trolley and filled it,the nice lady on the checkout gave me two large trays to hold the plants in the car.Alpines,campanula,osteospurnum,geraniums etc all need to be potted up,now when are pots going to be reduced?
Sounds like one heck of a bargain.
Morning FORKERS ...clear blue sky and warm sushine. Weatherman said rain later but he's joking.
Foodbank again today. Bit of an event going on so have to go today as well ......don't really mind but other stuff to do too. Might get my pic in paper........
Keep safe folks
Morning all, windy, grey sky. So much to do outside after all the rain we've had, don't know where to start.
Morning all! Was just about to go into the garden and start work when it poured with rain, so I've come on here instead. OH is clearing the garage, having put down rat poison in there and found that some has been taken. He's wearing his wellies, and not because of the rain! I'm skulking well away from there. We have both spotted a young rat near the compost bins and heap in the last day or so. Hoped it was a large mouse - but, no. We've drenched the compost, but it creates a lot of mud in the area. Think OH will probably insist on no more composting. Don't really blame him!
Morning all. Doesn't seem ideal weather for anyone. It was bright blue sky when I got up. Then fell asleep on sofa and just woken up and wondered who had sprayed my windows with hosepipe- then realised ground was also wet
I will wait and watch Chelsea now and venture out when it has finished.
Gilly I can't help but look at cut price sections at GC- suppose it is like when other women get some clothes in a sale and say they have saved money
Well, I was going to venture out, not in the garden, but have just had hailstones. Looking extremely black out there. Heating on, so it look like another sofa afternoon.
TinaT, hailstones in Kent? we're all doomed! It is wet and chilly here in the Fens but the Toms still had to go outside for the day along with the Morning Gs., otherwise I will have to start the whole hardening off process again.
