Surely not your age fairygirl lilies ? are they a particular favourite plant of yours ?
Fairygirl, I love the look of lillies, but the smell makes me sick. It's so heavy. Daughter buys them regularly, not for me, and I have to remove them to the furthest room and shut the door when I go there. Nothing to do with age.
Hiya Tina, how are you today ?
Very fond of a lily ever since I was given some when first daughter was born. The longiflorum ones are really my fave as scent is less heavy and don't get so much slug probs with them. Very kind remarks Brum and Tina! Off for my walk now!
okay , enjoy your walk
Haven't done what I was supposed to do Brumbull. Spent too much time messing about doing nothing and getting nowhere. There's always tomorrow. I won't be going for a walk!
I'm still curious as to why Dove was posting from under her desk, wonder if she's got out yet
Just lazy Brumbull. No other excuse. That's the trouble when you have all day to do things. So easy to say 'manana'.
Dove was at work Rain, so she was probably being naughty and skiving.
Yup, s'posed to be working when I'm at work, so can only post on my phone when in the loo, or under my desk at a push bit naughty really, but now that I know I'm retiring in November (did I mention that I'm retiring in November?) I'm sort of emotionally detatching from the job - losing focus a bit - ought to try a bit harder really
Perhaps Dove would love to win the lottery.
Welcome to the land of retired folk Dove, I did that on 30th September 2010 at the age of 61 and a half, I'd worked from the age of 15 so thought I'd had enough especially after the 2 very bad winter of 2008 and 2009 and having to get 2 buses every day to get to work, getting up at 5.30 to be out for 6.30 to catch the first bus, the best feeling of that year was waking up on that final morning reaching over to turn the alarm clock off and thinking to myself that's the last time ever I shall get up for work
You deserve it
Good Morning ALL Forkers, well some of you will be waking up to the white stuff it is like a blizzard here ! if you do need to go out anywhere this morning and you have similar conditions to what i have here PLEASE take care
Wet and a little less windy than yesterday here in Ireland, Cork city has some flooding (again).
