My son has moved out but he will be moving back in this summer. He will be having an operation on his knee and builders will be in his house doing the loft conversion and a new kitchen. He lives about 35 mins away, his wife will have to deal with the builders!


Morning everybody, just woke up for the second time, was up at 6, miserable weather so went back to bed. OH sent me the shampoo ad per Skype, I think he was trying to tell me something!

Sowed cucumbers and butternut squash yesterday, no gardening today but at least the water butts are full.

Enjoy your Sunday, will check in later.


Just cannot bend, carry, shift, wheel anything any more today.  Legs are like jelly. It is so cold too.  So have come indoors and have just put my roast on, Oh yes, and the heating. 


Just baked a cake!!! Victoria sandwich 

Anyone putting the kettle on?


Sorry Dove. Can't move. Will just have to fade away.



Tina, OH says you shouldn't be doing gardening in those high heels - you'll pull something    You're downhill from here - I'll lob a flask and a tupperware box over - can you crawl to the door to get them?


Got to keep up appearances Dove. What would my fans think (if any are still alive).

I think I could manage that Dove.  Thanks. Any relation to Fatima Whitbread?  If so, should reach me.


I'm going to be first on evening FORKERS


Nah, nah, nah-nah, nah.

Oh forgot and taxi my daughter to and from the train station on Sat she and her friends going to night out in Edinburgh for my daughters birthday that's what dads are for now back to work for a rest.


Good morning folks   I've done my usual early morning perambulation of the garden in my jim jams and dressing gown - temp down to 5C overnight so I was ok not to fleece the beans  Hedgehogs have visited the feeding stations and eaten their supper 

plants all growing apace,  ditto weeds  

Rain overnight so the butts are filled, and now we have blue skies and bright fluffy clouds, and I have to get ready for work 

I was woken about 1.30  by a very noisy helicopter circling the area quite low for about an hour - it seemed to be going over and over the golf course and the marshes - I hope no one's missing.

Quick weetabix and cuppa and then I'm off - need to be in earlier this morning.

Just about to go and open the coldframe and the greenhouse vents - the morning ritual.

Morning Andy, didn't see you there 


Hey folks, can you do me a favour?  I've got to go to work today, but if you see Nutcutlet about can you let her know I've sent her a PM as we'll be in her vicinity next weekend - I don't think people are getting email notifications at the moment !!!
