Morning Brumbull!

I'm back in the office after two days away on a first aid course and there's .... nothing for me to do. So I'm spending my time wisely and coming up with more ideas for the garden. This house sale had better get a move on because my plans are getting bigger all the time!!

I wish you luck dealing with the agents Bumbull, make sure you're stocked with plenty of red wine to help you cope with weeks after weeks of them messing you around! :/

New houses are terribly exciting... its hard work to keep your ideas reigned in though, especially on long evenings when all you want to do is retreat under a blanket and let your imagination go wandering. My partner has already worked out the log burner in the lounge, new conservatory, large garage and workshop, not to mention the new kitchen... he'd best get some over time in!!

Not that bad a time to sell,Brumbull. Next door neighbours sold their house last week, only on the market for two weeks, and as several people fancied it, went to sealed bids, and they got £15000 more than the asking price. Apparently local estate agents are struggling to get more properties on their books, as everything seems to be selling so quickly! So, good luck where you are!

Morning Brumbull

Glad to hear you've found a nice property, hope your offer gets accepted and your old property is sold quickly. By the way, just to be nosey, what business are you in?

Have a safe trip to the Midlands and greetings to Albert.

I have had a brief swim in the garden, really hope we have a few days without rain soon!!

Another poster informed me via PM yesterday that some posters obviously using a certain thread to hide abusive words .. …… don't think there is any need for this do you ? is this what you grown ups do …? NO need for swearing on any forum whether you are in your little clique or NOT there is no reason . … ….. YES you know who you are 

Happy shopping, don't spend it all in the same shop!

Hi Brumbull, long time no see! What did you get up to in Spain? Thought I saw a mention of Egypt, what were you doing there, was it a side trip from Spain?

Have a good time shopping, hope you find your bench. Have fun with your new kitties, photo of them sometime? http://en.planetaemoticon.com/download-animals-cat-43-gif.htm

Cold here this morning, -5C and frost. Not even thinking about sowing seeds yet, though itching to get going like everyone else! Roll on Spring!

Regards to Albert too!

SwissSue

Sounds like you had a great time! Hope your friends don't live near any of the troubles going on in Egypt.

See you discovered the emoticons, ha ha!

Look forward to seeing the photos, have a great day!

Well found a four sweater oak bench for my garden, not keen on the price though .... £428.00. !!

If your oak bench is wearing 4 sweaters Brumbull, it should be quite happy! Have fun at the GC.

That is a beautiful, solid looking bench, Brumbull, well worth the money. Can just see you and Albert sitting on it contemplating your garden!

Morning "ordinary" Brumbull What a shame, here I was, hoping to be "speaking" to Sir Brumbull and showing off my posh friend!

Baskets sound lovely, funny you should have made a round one. Just bought a booklet from Amazon called Hanging Baskets by the RHS and they describe how to make a round basket just like that! Lovely booklet with lots of suggestions of flowers for hanging baskets. Haven't decided what I will plant in mine yet, only have 3 that hang around the pergola (might get tempted to get a 4th one!).

Hope you and Albert have a great day and not too much rain.

SwissSue

Mmm, watering baskets is a bit of a problem, they dry out so quickly too. This year I'm going to add a good portion of vermiculite to the compost in the hope it will keep the soil moist longer.

Have you ever thought of writing a blog rather than limiting yourself to the constraint of the morning and evening threads with which to regale the world of your every notion?

Nobody is asking you to read them, Clari!
