MMmmm donuts.....aaahhh ..drool..
Morning all. Our local bakers do a lovely ring doughnut- only kind I like. What are these Birds Caramel ones of which you doth speak so prettily fidge?
Holiday weekend here but I have work on Monday so hope to get stuff done. Very misty and damp today. Birds are enjoying my purpose made squirrel/magpie/starling/jackdaw proof feeder- 2 cheap wire hanging baskets wired together with the feeder attached inside. The big birds were just swooping in and demolishing the lot and the little ones were getting nothing but the dregs. Happy robin and friends now.
More tea needed now.
For any poor souls not inthe Derby area.
scroll down for pictures of caramel donut and other delectable delights.
If this delivery doesn't get a wiggle on, there will be none left.
A caramel donut has real cream in the middle and is dipped in caramel fudge like icing. Just the thing with Friday afternoon coffee.
So is it more like a choux bun fidget rather than doughnut texture? I love those - ones with coffee icing are particularly scrumptious!
I've had to resort to ironing as the weather's very dreary. Still, indoor jobs need doing so will do them with occasional tea drinking.
No, its proper doughnut dough.
So is this really today or another day???
First time I have been able to each you all since the beginning of the week or have you all found another way to enter?
Yep - definately excitement rising here as well for Malvern Show. Am surprised it is only for 2 days though
Hope to purchase my belated birthday pressie there so have been good and not sulked about not having one
Edited that post so will start again.
Yep here also looking forward to the Malvern Show. we are surprised it is only for 2 days though.
Hope to be buying my belated birthday pressie there so have been very good and not grumbled about not having had anything on the day
Think I give up............................

They posted matty!
If it's a belated birthday presssie I think you deserve 2
all out off the lifeboat dont forget the cakes hurrah afternoon all
Just in and going back out soon to take girls for dinner as a treat.
Did you get your deliveries fidget? A batch of doughnuts as a reward for patience I think, but don't let Verd know- he's a terrible doughnut thief...
archie- your cakes and pies and puds got us through!
Still having to refresh though, but hopefully everything on the mend now
waited in all day, only to ring yodel, who said they had tried to deliver and left a card. What a load of b@lls. I spent most of the day weeding the front, and no card.
Si I dashed out to bank, then cake shop, to find........empty shelves.
So I am reduced to a tesco apple turnover. Its not the same.
Hurray, site seems to be working! Thank you tech team and Daniel.
Went to garden centre this morning, bought lots of tulips, alliums and Dutch irises. Spent the afternoon transporting and stacking logs. Tiring.
Back from my course - am now a negotiator extraordinaire - but exhausted. V v glad to be home
Back I hope without being repeated
I suppose I'm on the wrong thread now
Oh the trials and tribulations of usung a computer on GW forum
Hurrah!!! It's dawning a bright new day and all is well with the Gardener's World!!!
It appears that we're going to have this gorgeous weather for a few more days yet, and I've got a three day weekend ahead of me - this morning I'll be popping down south to visit my parents - then home to shop, tidy the house etc and hopefully potter in the garden. Tomorrow we've booked a pub lunch on the Broads then we're heading for The Old Vicarage at East Ruston - I've not been for years and I'm so looking forward to it - I'll be taking my notebook and some cash
Sounds good Dove, bet it's lovely at East Ruston in Autumn
That's my hope too - I can get some practice in with my new camera too!
Have you worked out how it goes Dove
I've just posted on New Threads, forum now working... that I can't gain access to latest posts. Guess what now I can Maybe I should put computer back in box and take it back..too thick to have one!
Morning all, dull and miserable here, but yesterday started that way and turned out lovely, so hoping for same today.
Grass to cut at M's, brother going for his fortnightly 4 hrs in garden, so off to jolly him along, too much drinking tea and not enough effort me thinks.
Not done anything with my bulbs yet so maybe I need a "jolly along".
Have a good day all.
