Re the no door key- I think you should give him it on a string to tie round his neck Tina-you know like the mitts threaded through the jacket sleeves...
Is it the fat that's a problem...cos you can make fatless sponges. Used to make them for someone I knew who couldn't eat cakes because of the fat.
Just potted on some lettuce- looking forward to eating it
Think the cabbage seedlings will survive and hopefully I will too! My poor mum has been called in to have her knee replaced slap bang in the middle of our long awaited Center Parcs holiday next week...grr. They will not refund nor change dates so looks like Hubby may have to come instead. They know how to charge at that place. So much for cancellation insurance . Tina and FG-I have all this teenager stuff to come but not for a while yet. My boys are one and two years old!
wish I was in the garden today. Off to the soft play instead
These tulips (new avatar) are called Princess Irene and are in my jewell border.
Sory things aren't going as planned Matty. Know how that feels. Lovely avatar.
FG, perhaps you could suggest that to him then you would get the black eye. Yep, no dairy products. Causes me too much pain. Have thought about making a fatless one, but am lazy. I don't feel deprived though. Not eaten anything I shouldn't since December. No chocolate, no cake. Lost 21lb. Still pleasantly plump.
ANG, that's appalling. I always thought if you could produce medical evidence, then you could have a refund. My 'teenager' is 33. Just acts like one. I'm at the stage where I fondly remember my adult children's antics when they were young. Happy days.
Hiya allnewbie gardener...yes ang.....try again to get refund. Ask to speak to manager and explain your situation.
Earlier this year a friend had tickets for Chelsea ....not going now....and asked for refund. A jobsworth said no....not their policy to give refunds. I intervened. A refund was processed in a couple of days.
Dont accept no. I never do
ANG- I'm on a mission right now with all these companies that are shafting decent hard working people who are sick of it. Verd's right-don't give up! I've been ranting and getting the result I wanted. If I can do it anyone can- people power!
...and fairygirl"'s got her magic wand...every little bit helps
Verdun if I ever need to complain I'll be calling on you for help
Im off out in the garden all day. Its 82 degrees the suns shining and everything in the garden is fantastic. No im not in the UK thank goodness as the talk of fleece and hot drinks depresses me im in Hungary.
Morning everyone , looks like it could be nice after last nights rain.
szia is hungarian for hi.
Good morning all - bright golden sunshine here but a few clouds appearing in the west.
I've got to spend this morning sorting seedlings and baby plants out so that I can leave them unattended until Monday lunchtime - I think the coldframe with a bit of shade and plenty of ventilation should be fine for most of them - the baby toms can be in the studio with their toes in damp gravel trays.
What's more important - will the hedgehogs miss me?
Oh, and I must remember to fill the bird feeders before I leavel!
Morning Dove and blackest. Better weather here today than predicted thankfully as the rain is further north. Torrential yesterday from early on so glad I cut grass the day before.
Dove-I'm sure your babies will be fine while you're away. Have you got the hogs booked into a suitable hotel with room service
Won't get much done as my sister is visiting. She's got my wheelbarrow so that's really why I asked her over
Good mornimg everybody.
Misty/drizzle this morning. Quite pleasant cos it's warm. Supposed to be fine later.
thIngs in the garden moving quickly now...suddenly something is floweriing. Today it's my Stipa Gigantea.
Runner beans will be planted out in a few days......
Enjoy the weekend folks
Mornin Verd. Nice here after the dire day yesterday-wish I'd got my sister over then instead since I couldn't get out anyway!
Must go and get some things before she comes. Maybe I could get her to help scrape moss out the grass..
dark skys over heaton park and a rainbow .cloudy and sunny spells. could be rain . oh yes its a bank holiday weekend .. thank god for the summer house . keep calm and carry on
Morning all. Have a great weekend, Dove!
Rain here this moring. Drat! We're supposed to get reasonable weather for the bank holiday weekend. There's certainly lots to do before we go away next Thurs.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
Archie- Yes keep calm!
GG- hope you don't get what we had yesterday-even the ducks were wearing waders..
If you watch this week's Beechgrove-when he visits the garden in Rosneath-that's what it was like!
Good morning all.Today & next couple of days I'm actually planning on being in my garden.
We've been "doing" at Mum's (aged 85) for the last 4 days...she has 1/3rd acre, a lot of lawn and very mature trees & shrubs and hedges, with a lot of beds & borders. Until last years she did great with just us grass cutting & a team in once a year to sort out the monsters that needed doing. She was a little demon with loppers and mini saw, sadly her health is failing and it distresses her to see things needing doing, so now it's down to us and my Bro' who helps. My other 2 sisters don't garden, but help in other ways. We've achieved quite a bit whilst there but I will say that if I see another buttercup I'll cry....Look like crying as I've plenty to weed here.
I'm disappointed that my runners are still not showing, climbing French beans & climbing Barlotti doing fine. They are all in individual pots in unheated greenhouse. First job today is to poke about in them and see if anything is happening...well they've had 3 weeks undisturbed..lazy things!
Talking of lazy things I'd better jump in shower.
Enjoy your day whatever you do.
