in The potting shed
Omlette went down a treat. Just mixed pancake mix, and bath is running. Just need to find something to watch on one of the players.
Evening Dan . how are you getting on ?
What on earth is that ?
Me lost in the over growth. been very slack in the garden due to pack pain
Hello all, (and hi Dan). I've survived the sleepover but I cheated and came home to sleep! Akela was not impressed but I've got too much going on to be going without a night's sleep. The rest of it went well and we had a french theme so gave them bowls of hot chocolate and croissants for breakfast. Seemed to be a popular move!
No ging gang goolies though. The hut is a bit more substantial than a shed! Its more like an old army building - in fact it is an old army building! (Well, actually two stuck together!) It has character.....
Dan - nothing to serious I hope. haven't heard from you for ages.
Don't blame you Lottie - nothing beats your own bed.
Hmmm, Brandy and hot chocolate . Might have to try that.
Evening Forkers. I'm with you there Jean - that does sound nice and just what I need to warm up! Had a cold but cultural day today . Been all around West Wales looking at old churches, ancient monuments, Preseli Mountains (where stones for Stonehenge originated) and beautiful beaches! No wonder we all feel tired.
Pentre Ifan - 3500 BC
11th Century Celtic Cross at Nevern Church
Ancient gravestones - don't know why but I love really old graveyards
Sounds like you had a good time Caz . Love looking at old churches. Greek ones are spectacular - very ornate . The last one we saw was in Yorkshire in Mythalmyriod ( excuse spelling ) bit of a mouthful that.
How on earth did those stones end up in Stonehenge ?
We pondered that question today Jean! I decided that however it was done, the women must have organised it . Visitors going back home tomorrow so I shall probably spend the day recovering - haven't done so much in so few days for years!!!
Just done a quick catch up
Welcome home Dan-a long hibernation
Evening Caz-graveyards and stones-you're a cheap date
Think I might go to warm bed and watch tv
Morning forkers Been a very slight snowfall overnight here but not much to write home about. Felt a great need for tea so am sitting in conservatory admiring yesterdays efforts. A tad on the achy side today . Good practice for the events yet to come.
At the risk of being ex- communicated I would like a little rain shower today - just to settle the plants in that I moved yesterday. Come to think of it, my rainwater supply is running a little low.
That's a first.
We are off visiting today and later may or may not pot up some Mont Blanc lillies.
Have a good day everyone.
Another cold day, and no end in sight.
I love the stonework photos just above. I've got some standing stone photos, and old gravestone photos, of my own...
Artifacts like those are exactly what I'd like in my garden (perhaps reproductions), and covered with lichens.
Morning all. Had a catch - up. Nice to have Dan back again. Jean, you have my undying admiration - I went outside for about 15 mins yesterday and had such frozen fingers that I gave up and came in again. Rubbish night on telly so went to a local am.dram. I didn't realise Agatha Christie was that popular!. The theatre holds 450 and there were very few empty seats.
Really cold again, a few small snowflakes settling on cars. Maybe I'll brave the greenhouse today.
Keep warm. eat cake, drink brandy and hot chocolate and have a good day forkers.
Good morning all - white stuff sprinkled around - nothing that absolutely has to be done in the garden (other than put the rat bait boxes out there ), but bread and scone making is on the agenda and some pork to roast - other than that a bit of reading/knitting/watching tv - I think I'm due for a lazy day - anyone care to join me?
Morning all. Cold and grey here -5°. Nearly time to refill horses' water, but outdoor tap is frozen. That means carrying containers from the kitchen (or pushing them in wheelbarrow). They drink 40L a day each. When weather's like this it doesn't go above freezing all day.
