Morning all. Not on here last night as I was too tired. Outside till about 7pm and got lots done- it's slow, tiring stuff but I'm getting there.
Rain here and to be damp all day and wet tomorrow so it'll help get the new plants established.
fidget - Verdun will tell you he trains the dog but.....
chick- pix please!!
BL- hope the eyes are better today. Very painful and frustrating too.
Normal? Normal??? I'm completely normal - my analyst has been telling me that I am for years....
Good Morning all.
Lizzie hope your eye has been ok through the night.
Matty hoping your Mum recovers well.
Chicky I've only really started taking garden pics since joining here, but saw some from March and couldn't believe how empty and bare it looked. I know it was Winter but it just looked barren.
Spent yest' afternoon moving pots around and feeding plants. Off on jollies tomoz' and needed to put things together so hopefully neighbour won't overlook any at watering time. I'm almost wishing we weren't going..so many beans will get wasted and left unpicked ( even though I've asked) so new ones won't grow. Toms will go unpicked, except cherry ones..they'll be monster marrows on courgette plants I could go on but I'd cry
Fairy please keep an eye on my blue poppy..I nearly put a label in it saying please remember to water me.
No doubt when I'm on my sun lounger drinking a frostie one I'll not care ( too much).
Have a good day all.
First post on this bit. i think i might be late and get a detention or flushed though. It takes ages to tab to the last page to post a reply! or is there another way to get to the end of a discussion. I will take whatever the punishments is...
Good morning Haisie.
Click on latest posts. Find Good morning thread, click green arrow at right hand side under name of last poster. Not the title of the thread. That's wot I do.
Bright but cloudy ish. Very warm. Think it will be hot again.
Fairy...why are ??ou so tired? I was outside in the garden too,last night till past 7. I had a couple of lagers on lounger thinking of so much to do. So much.
Busy, hope eye is better today. May take a day or,two though.
And Matty, thoughts with you too.
(What are our politicians doing? Attacking Syria? Why dont they wait until weapons inspectors return? Why not simply insist Assad hands over his chemical weapons to avoid our interference? We can't keep following USA. Sorry folks.....
Ah, just tried it and that's saved a lot of time - thought that there would be a better way. Feel an idiot now!
And good morning KEF and thank you for that!
Verdun, Syria... Let's hope we don't make another mistake and send our poor soldiers to yet another...
Haisie I started out doing just the same.
There are other ways to do it but that's what I find easy.
Morning Verd, can't do politics until I've had another brew, you're hogging all the sun & warmth again, chilly & dull here. Enjoy it.
Seems like there is a bit of backing down judging by yesterday evenings news reports.
It's not politics its mass murder, a cruise missile can't distinguish between an innocent civilian and a 'legitimate' target. Hopefully a delay will help more people escape from Syria before bigger bombs hit their homes.
Morning everyone. Been on a brain holiday.
I have to say I was pleased to hear the news Blackest. It's inhumane what is happening, but we can't police them all. I certainly don't know what the answer is.
Glad you've found this motley bunch Haisie. They will make you most welcome. Several jokers. Not all sensible and serious minded like moi.
Done lots in the garden and now have loads of stuff to get rid of. Might smoke neighbours out but might be kind and just keep filling the bins. Depends on whether they upset me or not. Got paper for printer now so, neighbours beware!
Going to pop to Mothercare, etc, this morning to get some things for new babe which arrives tomorrow. Am hoping for a girl as there are far too many of those nasty boys around. You know, the ones that pick their noses and scratch in certain parts. Little girls don't do that.
Having great trouble with my internet at moment and was told this morning that I had been hacked and if I pay money, it will be sorted out. Told chap I would get my son to speak to him later. Not quite so stupid as I may sound.
Well, everyone have a good day. Sun's shining here. Hope everyone else has the same.
Morning TinaTurner. Wow, you are having a baby! And tomorrow! Oh my! that's wonderful. How lovely.
Hi haisie, hope you enjoy forum.
Tina, im with you on boys, lets hope your DIL produces a lovely pink bundle of joy. Oh yes, but gorgeous whether pink or blue! Hope all goes well
No Haisie. If I was, I might make a lot of money. 4th grandchild. Didn't expect any more but son and new wifey obviouly thought it a good idea, even though their own sons are 18+ and 14. But............this babe is not going to change their lives and they are already talking about doing some coastal drive in USA next year!! And, no, Grandma will not be looking after him or her.
Always a bit quiet on here during the day at this time of the year. I am usually last as lots of the others are far more industrious or have to go to work. I'm a Lazy Mary. Still in nightclothes as I've been faffing around on this laptop again. Think I will now have to change my plans and go out later this afternoon. Story of my life.
Thanks MrsG. Keep looking at the baby clothes! Found some pretty little dresses but wonder whether they will put her, if it's a her, in them. Daughter bought them a Guns and Roses Tshirt and the babe will be wearing it whatever it is!! It's light brown too.
Thanks for kind wishes.
Went into GH this morning and heard a blop. Looked down and there was a large frog swimming in a water trough. Rushed in to get camera but by the time I had found it, made sure SD card was in etc he had gone. Was really pleased though - bye-bye slugs
Not sure what to do today. May strat the digging of new white bed as now have lots of plants for it, my paint the log roll to edge it. Have to see how things pan out.
Didn't Have time to say Good Morning this morning so Good Afternoon instead.
Eye is feeling much better, thank you. Still another 3 days antibiotics to go though.
Went to Aladdin's cave this morning to do the shopping. Alias, Leclerc Hypermarket.
Son No.2's 30th birthday tomorrow, but he's at work so will be having a weekend celebration. We are going to the lunch on Saturday and babysitting adorable 20 month granddaughter in the evening. (Son No.1's.)
Oh, Hello and welcome Haisie. Just clicked on your pic to see where you're from. Saw losts of postings for "why is it" haven't seen that one yet, will have a look. If you click on my pic it will tell you I'm from Wyre Forest, unless they've fixed it. I'm in France, Dordogne.
Finally decided to start the big dig.
I am very pleased the area has had a couple of sprays of Roundup. Certainly makes it easier just clearing dead roots. Mind you the ground is like concrete as we do not think it has been cultivated for years. Found some bits of wire, a can ring pull and some sweet wrappers - too old to be ours. We often find lego, but not today. The 2 large roots (about inch across the one) I have left for OH to struggle with.
Feel as if I have made progress.
Will mulch it with the old potato bag compost, when finished, hope it rains and then the exciting bit - arranging and planting.
Well done Matty, always good to have a productive day, especially this time of year. A white border sounds lovely. My jewel border is now white - best plans etc - the brights didn't last long.
Bizzie-Lizzie, I went on hol to the Dordogne 9 years ago. So beautiful. I bought a silver dinner fork made into a braclet which I treasure. Me and my boys, then 15 and 12, conoed 16 miles down the river. It was tickling down with light rain and my oldest son wore a black plastic cape thing with a hood, he looked like the Grim Reeper. I lauged until I was crying with the pain in my stomach. Beautiful castles and walnut oil - oooh, loved that. You are very lucky.
