Morning all. Daughter's results didn't arrive yesterday...talked to postman and he was going to check with his boss back at depot. If they don't appear today she'll have to go and get them in school tomorrpw when thay do the timetable changes if you don't get the grades you need. Nothing's ever simple is it! She got some chocolate anyway to keep her spirirts up....
Cool cloudy and damp here. Some parts of Northumberland apparently only 3degrees last night!
Have a lovely day Dove.
MrsG the headless UGs are cheaper because you don't have to feed them....
Hoping it stays dry later as I've got concreting to do.
Have a good day everyone.
Morning all, feeling like a proper gardener this morning as I have already been in the garden. I've finally got around to taking cuttings and now keeping fingers crossed for a year. Mini apprentice looked , complained I was using his pencil and marched back off to tv, perhaps I need some management training...
Have a good day.
Not my daughter waiting on tenterhooks KEF, thank goodness - she graduated last year. I think it's FG's daughter we've got our fingers crossed for today.
Haven't been to East Ruston for years - must do go there again - problem is having to cram everything into weekends -next summer will be different - my time will be my oyster or something like that.
Anyone feel like planning a trip next year to East Ruston/Mannington Hall/Bressingham or somewhere like that in East Anglia?
Cake might be involved
Good morning folks.
Beautiful here......oops! Looking in the mirror again. Sunny and warm and calm
The rain has made the grass lush amd dark green and the garden is thriving....more grasses flowering now.
Enjoying brekkie whilst under pressure to take my dog to the beach
Have good day
Dove it's your world that'll be your lobster....have you got a three wheeled van and a market stall by any chance?
Trip would be nice especially if cake's on offer. Will we have to get there early to beat Verd?
Work beckons so off I go
Thanks for the tip FG, but he seems to eat through his legs!
Good luck with the iPhone, I nearly always post and view on my windows phone, a bit if a pain, if iPhone works for you I may be tempted to change. Can you put photos straight from phone to forum, mine won't.
nice day here, sunny, warm, not sure about forcast.
Sounds like a lovely day out for chocky today, enjoy.
Dove, im opposite to you, my days off are tues/wed.
Oops, meant .chicky. Funny predictive text usually calls her 'chucky'! Chocky I quite like though...breakfast? And Verdun becomes 'here' on predictive.
Soz Dove, half asleep again...did mean Fairy
Nice sunny morning,but a lot fresher,ideal day for gardening.
Am going to do battle with wispy Wisteria tendrils today,have only been away a few days ,but they have gone across the roof of OH,s octagonal greenhouse and tangled themselves around the vent at the top,need to clear it or it won,t open.
Hope your daughter gets her results today Fairygirl,and gets the grades she needs,chocolate is always a good idea
Trip in East Anglia too far for me Dove,but suggestion of trip and cake combined excellent
Have a good day all.
Brrrr autumn is most definitely waiting to descend.... Well have started my Xmas shopping! a day of garden pootling and house work today that's if monster lets me She's full of the joys today. Moved an acanthus from the flower bed into the wooded area yesterday it was far too big and crowding a load of stuff. It's in a nice spot so hopefully it will look stunning..... Also found a great fern for down there a lady in red (athyrium filix-femina) love the red stems they will add a great dimension. Gonna sort some of the strawberry runners today, have a great day everyone and enjoy whatever your doing
Fingers crossed for your daughter Fairy.
It's overcast today so I shall not be sunning myself. Might get the rest of the ivy cut back-if I can drag myself out of bed
Stacey Xmas shopping . I'd stick to garden pootling and leave housework.
Have a fab day all- whatever you do
Morning all... well, its not evening, anyway. Don't know what toi do with myself today, since I'm no longer helping bro to move in to new house. Have shopped and can see that I could clean.... Garden also needs attention and at last it is not raining. Apparently, we missed a lot of excitement on Monday. The drains failed to cope and water broke through the road surface outside a nearby house and apparently there was a spectacular fountain. We came home to cones and traffic lights which mean that we have to queue to get into our own drive. So far, the cones and traffic lights are the entire show - no workers have actually shown up to repair anything.
After a diet of crisps and chocolate while working yesterday, back on the straight and narrow today. Roast chicken and veg roasted in Frylight for lunch. (Chicken reduced because its sell-by date had arrived).
Afternoon. Didn't do my usual sitting for ages on laptop earlier, but changed bed then went to carry on with the vine chopping up. There's rather a lot and more to come down! Then spotted something else that needed a haircut, so did that. Measured up the wall for new trellis and a bit to take it to 10ft,. Can do that as it's to cover next doors horrible extension. Now have a problem as it's collection only. How bloody ridiculous. Who could get a 7ft x 7ft trellis in their car + a fancy bit for the top. Could get son to strap it to his back on his bike. Not sure he would agree to that though. And, no, I don't know a man with a van.
Oh, well, back to the drawing board. Why is nothing simple?
Ok, am having a play with my new toy (its not often i appear on weekday lunchtime). Sat in the meadow behind our office:
Can anyone see that?
Ooh - it worked
Lovely view from your office, Chicky!
Morning TT. Impressive effort going on! Hope you sort out the trellis.
FG, hope your daughter is soon put out of her suspense.
Hello all, had my 4 children and 6 grandchildren staying so haven't been on here.
Also it's not working very well, which is a bore when you are in a hurry. I typed some answers on some other threads but couldn't see them until I clicked on F5, which I didn't know about until Dove mentioned it. I used the email notifications but haven't had any for some time.
Also when I click on my avator pic it says I'm from Wyre Forest and I haven't any details or posted anything. I couldn't work out how to get to my messages until I clicked on forum posts by accident and got to them via my posts. So I didn't answer GG straight away, especially as there wasn't a notification.
Sent Daniel Haynes a message, he said it was working OK, sent him about 3 since but no answer.
At least the one above appeared after I wrote it so someone has done something. Really would like the notifications and my identity back.
They're working on it BL. If you read through the back posts, you will find it was a frustrating 3 days on here! Only started working correctly mid-dayish yesterday. Notifications, etc, hopefully to follow soon. Don't know how you managed to move though!
Having lunch - nice view at work chick!
Thanks for all the kind wishes for no. 2 daughter - post doesn't come till mid afternoon so will have to wait an see She has managed to struggle on with the help of some Galaxy chocolate - the brave little soldier.....
Does that come across as sarcastic as it's meant to?
Stacey if you mention C*******s shopping on here before December we'll have to ban you..... The 'C' word isn't allowed in my house till then. Surprisingly, the girls stuck to that even when little!
Nice now so might venture out for more hard labour. The shooting incident that happened up here yesterday involved customers where I work, and the man who did it lived near me. I knew his sister quite well as she was a regular customer in the saddlery shop we have, which I worked in prior to having my children. They used to live on the neighbouring farm to where it happened. Not good.
