Why do we live where the main shopping street is a very steep hill. Just walked up and down it about 4 times - still good for the lbs off, another one went this week.
Bought some pots for cues and then found a delivery of bare rooted altsroemeria (can't spell that)
They obviously can't go out side, will they keep in cold GH without potting up till its warmer HUH What have i jusr said
Today is house work day in my house. The husband is at work and the daughter at college. Had elevenses at 9.30 then lunch at 12.15. Plenty of time for afternoon tea before i cook the dinner tonight.
Does anyone know of anywhere to stay in London SE26 area? the daughter has work experience over Easter and needs somewhere to stay thats not expensive
Maud, SE26 covers quite a few places. Could the work experience bods suggest somewhere suitable. Just a thought. I live not too far away, but can't help and I have a full house.
Thanks Tina. She willl be at Antoinettes costume hire. which is in Kirkdale. I am complete novice when it comes to London ,im much happier down on the south coast
That's in Sydenham Maud. Kirkdale is the name of the road. Still can't help re accommodation though! South Coast is definitely preferable.
Hoping the chap that owns the place will have some idea where she can stay.
Definitely think that's your best bet Maud.
Am getting a bit concerned. Think the worst has happened to another old lady living across the road. Have just realised that I am now the oldest in my bit of the road. The Grim Reaper is getting closer! Was only laughing about it the other day. Doesn't seem so funny now.
You think you're bad Tina. I actually looked across at the retirement flats near my lawyer a few weeks back and seriously thought they looked quite attractive ...I'm only 27 GG.... Maud you made me laugh about your mealtimes. I went to get bread and milk after work and bought a nice wheaten loaf and it's going to be calling me all afternoon. It's trying to snow again here, dark leaden looking clouds. Got some more little trays at the supermkt so I can get some lettuce on the go.
I've been saying for years that I am going to sell up one day and buy a retirement flat with just a balcony and I'm only 28! Don't think that I would like to live in such close proixity to other 28 year olds. They are sure to be those early risers who have to be at the Post Office or shops by 9 and would disturb my sleep.
When they are all getting on the bus, I am still in bed. Loads of hours in the day to do things when you don't work.
Think this should be on GG's MOB thread, but someone might be horrible to me if I post this on there.
Not me, I hope, TT!
Hi TT apologies for late reply only i have been helping a good friend finish off his benches in his greenhouse - yes it was nice and warm as well as he had two electric heaters belting out , wel where was i ? oh yes across the pond, oh yes my other home in Malaga - meaning across the sea, sorry just a term i use, then again i was talking to a close friend on skype last night who permanently lives there and the weather has not been that good although you could not compare with here, hows your day been TT ?
GG, as if, Have been messing about on here for ages, keeping your seat warm. Hope you had a good day,
No probs BB. I'm just plain nosey. Could have meant the Isle of Wight or Ireland even.
Been OK BB. Wasted the hours away as that's all I'm capable of doing when it's cold, but things will eventually change won't they and then we will all be much happier bunnies.
Yes TT, thats very true, its this time of the year the gardeners just want gardening its in the blood !! and we are all being held back by this bloomin weather
I have itchy fingers. Cant wait to start planting in my greenhouse but it is so cold in North Cornwall. Three weeks ago i planted broad beans and sweetpea seeds All very strong and healthy.I think i will wait until after Easter now.Hopefully it will be warmer.
Still lots of birds at the feeders so that tell me it is still to cold to plant out in the ground.
A bit worried about the garlic bulbs i plants in October (like Monty) still no signs of growth appearing out of the ground, Have i lost them to the cold and wet i wonder?
Any thoughts on the garlic please.
Had a lovely day, thanks. Put on 2lb at fat club and now sitting eating chocolate!
Met my ex-pupil for lunch (she lives in London) and discovered she had lost 5 stone. No, not stones, as in pebbles. Was consoled by the fact that she had chips for lunch. Mind you, I ate what she left! Shameless!
GG you make me smile
Verdun, Fat Club is about weighing, confessing all the misdemeanours of the previous week, making fun of yourself and then gassing about everything and everything while eating supposedly 'diet' cakes because you skipped breakfast in order to weigh less. Glad I wasn't the only one eating chocolate. Glad you help out at the Food Bank, too.
I have my own private Food Bank, of course.
Jad1, you've been completely ignored in the midst of all this nonsense. Welcome! You'd find more sensible people if you posted your question in a thread of its own, though there are some good gardeners using this thread. We are all itching to get out in the garden, which is why we are a bit hysterical!
