Good Morning all, another chilly night followed by a chilly day I think. Think I will be buying some heating oil later just to take the edge of it. The heating oil is scary as it can burn 2 litres an hour.
Good morning, all. Still basking in the glow of virtue that comes from having done my seed planting yesterday. Have decided to use a (very) few annuals to add a touch of brightness here and there among the perennials. Busy day today and not much hope of gardening in this freezing weather but might try to mulch a bit later. Makes the garden look well-cultivated and I need to do all the bluffing I can.
Still looking forward to hearing how Tattianna got on yesterday.
Olbas oil in use - I'm now considering whether to pull out of training session as I can't seem to stop coughing - doesn't seem to be a good idea to go if no one will be able to hear anything
Morning all not getting any warmer here. Know what you mean baout heating oil Blackest.Glad I don't have that problem now although gas isn't much better and I need to get a new boiler for this house so system not very efficient. Hope you feel better today Dove. It's miserable. I find those nose spray things quite good. Happy planting - if you can get into your soil and pots
Yes, hope you feel better soon. I agree with Fairygirl about the nasal sprays - a real lifesaver (and irritations calmer).
And it looks like Jon cob aka Fish4card (amongst many other things) is trying to cause trouble again - I've alerted the Moderator and am not going to respond to anything he posts.
Now Daniel knows what a total PITA he is he can take appropriate action.
I've also alerted the mod.
Bother i've been wasting time with trolls again, how do you know they are the same individual? There are no shortage of trolls on the Internet.
On the positive side I've just checked my radishes which have had two days in my heated propagator and they are so quick! yesterday morning 3 appeared by lunch time it was 5 and this morning nearly every cell has a seedling and some of yesterdays seem to be developing true leaves. I know radishes are quick and easy but that quick!
While i've been writing this post the suns appeared ok lots of white cloud but what an improvement
I'm afraid our pet troll is quite distinctive in his use of language and his behaviour - quite easily spotted once you get to know him
But what you posted says very nice things about you.
However, don't hold your breath for more blue skies - the wind's coming from the east and north east all week, and we have thick cloud at the moment, so it'll be coming your way
Blackest, I thought you were wise in what you said. Trolls, we have learnt, tend to impersonate those whom they hold to have insulted them. Politeness at all times is safest.
Hear hear GG. Just watching news and Isle of Man is looking like Arran also today so feel very lucky by comparison! Never thought I'd hear myself say this but I'm glad I'm not in Arran just now! Keep warm all -I'm off to freeze at work now Our cheery banter will help though
Cheers Verdun I've phoned in sick - unfortunately there's a cancellation fee that my team's budget will have to fund unless anyone can go in my place.
However, on the brighter side, I get to spend the day on the sofa under a fleecy throw with you lovely people
And OH is at home today so he's on coffee-making duty
BB, I hadn't long gone to bed when you started posting at that unearthly hour. Think I must have vampire blood as I seem to come to life around 12.
Sorry to hear you are poorly Dove. Good excuse not to go to work though. I spend every day on the sofa at the moment. Like not having to go to work, but am getting a bit fed up and definitely need some vitamen D.
Trolls don't bother me as I just ignore them. Not worth wasting time over.
Best get motivated I suppose.
Hi all. It seems a bit warmer here today. There was talk of haircuts on a thread last week. Having not had my hair trimmed for about a year and having given up dying it so it is all grey I decided it was time to do something. My BF who I've only known about 3 months has arranged for us to go away for a long weekend so I thought I'd give him a shock.Having highlights/ lowlights and a cut in about an hour. All I can think about is what great plants I could get for £80!!!! So fingers crossed everyone please
BB at the risk of sounding like a numpty, where's 'across the pond'.
Good for you Bev. Can't wait to get mine done again. Due to be done in about 3 weeks. I will not grow old gracefully.
Have made no progress. Still on sofa.
Woo2 & GG...my interview (well more of a formality really) was fine thanks. Don't know why I got my self all flustered about it because I have volunteered for the charity before and know the lady very well so it was more of an "oh we were so pleased to hear you wanted to come back and when you start" type of interview
