Just started typing and managed to report myself to moderator I think instead of posting.
Good morning everyone.
Still clinging on to the sun but rain, rain and more rain later and in the forecast.
Will,remove large picea today or weekend. I removed top late yesterday ....will cut off all remaining foliage to leave just 6' stem. Then the fun n games......actually digging it up. Always the same, viz., immovable at first then the first signs of rocking and then my mad attacks at roots and crowbarring. Finally my yell of "got you, you......." as it yields to the pressure. Then the satisfaction of seeing open ground for,plantIng.
Verd sounds like you could do with some of this rain to loosen the ground....
Morning. Humid here and have had some rain overnight. Looking very dreary on this late Summer morning. (OK Woody?)
Spent some time with new granddaughter yesterday. Was quite worn out when I got back but have to say that her mum was very relaxed about her screeching. Now I know why I have resigned from babysitting! Other two grandchildren were there and made a lot of noise but you can tell them to shut up. Their noise was brought on by eldest grandson tormenting them. He got a clip round the ear. Was glad to get home.
MrsG, how is your son getting on?
Panda, you will find may of us posters have been where you are and come out the other side. Take any medication as it's there to help you as is not addictive. Well, I didn't find it so. Talk about how you feel even to us as we are all very good listeners and will understand.
Hope it's not too wet a day for everyone.
Nice cool wet late summer day ahead... keep positive everyone, there's lots of fun to be had in the garden before 1 November. Then we can enjoy "A" to the full.
Very grey and dark today got to have the lights on already. And then theres the rain. My daughter is on the isle of wight camping. I think im going to have a lot of muddy washing when she gets home on monday.
Had a wonderful day out on wednesday., I went with a friend, to the village thay i lived in as a child. My dad was the village bobby in Westbourne near Chichester in the 1960s.We walked all round the village, saw the school i went to and the house my friends had lived in. Had lunch in The Stag where we made so welcome.A real trip down memory lane. I dont ever remember it raining but my mum has reassured me that it did.
Does anyone else have such fond memories of being a small child?
Raining persistently here. I have done some vacuuming and OH headphone lead went up the dyson. Dyson OK but I think the headphones have had it. Sprayed carpet cleaner and waiting for it to dry. Cleaned cooker. Put washer on. Put Dishwasher on. Washed pans. At this rate I will turn into a domestic goddess. (Not)
I've put the summer sandals away.
Yesterday, I got the dried off red onions into the garage, but the Kelsae have not died down enough. I dug up some more potatoes. Of course I stuck the fork through the one that weighed 1lb 10oz. It will make mash to go with sausages tonight. OH is on his way back from Glasgow. Despite being in a decent hotel, he is complaining at the lack of fresh fruit and veg. the only fruit at breakfast was tinned peaches. I suspect by next week he will be complaing about another bucket of beans, although he never seems to go off apple crumble and custard.
Maud, don't get me started or I will write a book. Only live a short distance from where I was born so am surrounded by childhood memories. Few years back, whilst out with my daughter, she wanted to see what had happened to the bungalow where I was born and my parents lived until they passed away. People I sold to were in the front garden so I introduced myself and we were invited in. Not sure whether that was a good or bad thing as it was no longer how I remembered it and I felt a bit sad but was able to move on as I still referred to it as 'home'. See lots of people I've known since the year dot and friends of my brother too.
Temperature's dropped but still wearing my sandels. Intend doing so till my toes get frostbite.
Still needing sunhats here TT
I went back to where my Grandparents lived,when my younger brother and I were both celebrating our1st Christmas ,they planted the Christmas trees out in the garden,they stayed there for over 50 years,when we visited they had gone,quite upsetting,wish I had,nt gone back.
Oh gilly that is a shame they cut them down. I lost someone and planted a cherry tree in their memory when I went back to the house it had gone and I was v upset it even had a memory plaque on it... Well morning peeps its raining here already lo has had me up since 5.30!!! Thanks for that baby girl!! Gonna take a mooch round the crocus sale this morning looking for thilactrum, ferns and wild swan if I can get some.... The anenome were all separated at the last sale so we shall see.... it was cold last night I'm yet to inspect the garden hope the newly planted things aren't affected...
Good morning all Sorry Stacey, we've got bright sunshine and blue skies over here
I've got to dash into the city first thing this morning, so I'm hoping that this weather is going to hold so I can make good use of it this afternoon.
The lovage in the herb garden needs cutting down (it's about 9 ft tall) before it seeds everywhere, and there's some pricking out and potting on to be done
Goog morning all, I've not been on for a while - very busy! A friend has barn owls living in her barn thing and she said that they have not produced any chicks this year and it's a sign that it's going to be a hard winter. Anyone heard that before? It's gone cold here and chucking it down!
Haisie yes I have heard that I don't mind bad winters it at least feels like we have 4 distinct seasons...
Ah, that's really interesting isn't it. i too like winter and snow and ice.. Thanks Stacey.
The other thing is it has been quite a good year for fruit trees my mum reckons when that happens its going to be a hard winter.... Plus the swifts are still in the nest!!!!! But then a cording to my oh my mother is a witch lol mmmmmmm maybe I got his meaning wrong lmao
Your mother's a witch? Can she get rid of curses cus someone put one on me a few years ago!
