Lazy sort of day today, going out chez friends for lunch. Good night on TV tonight, Countryfile, Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge. I wanted to be a midwife, but after general nurse training met 1st OH and ended up having babies instead! Did 3 months obstetrics. Not all women yell as much as they do in Call the Midwife! My OH can't watch it.
Cold Good Morning All
Still no sign of ice melting and by the light scattering of snow on the pots guess we has a little overnight.
Jean I know you and OH worked hard yesterday bUT rain
I have a most amazing icicle hanging from the sput of one of my water butts. Didn't realise it dripped till i saw it.
I love churchyards. At the Priory Church here the gravestones are fascinating - many are from other parts of the country, probably came here for the water cure and promptly died. There is one of a whole family - keep meaning to look them up on the census to find out about them
I have posted a question for rose experts No garden today, just thinking ablout it and maybe ordering some plants
Have absolutely nothing to report, but just checking in.
At the moment we are listening to a 'Pick of the Pops' with David Jacobs from 1961, He has just introduced a new group called The Springfields.
OH has found them, we heard another yesterday, on the internet. The sound is brilliant, as if it was now apart from the music
Tomato' have germinated, some aubergines but no peppers or chilli
morning all still cold here but dry
just sorting out my packets of seeds in to some kind of order ready to plant
hope to be able to get down to green house this week
Not much going on here either
good morning all its a balmy 5c here in Clogher head with sunny spells expected all week,so the weatherman says ,he also said it would not snow yesterday. but looking out my window across the Irish sea towards the Coolly mountains and the Mournes it looks it could be a good day
Back in October i was launched 6ft in the air by my partners pony and landed on my backside on very hard ground. Paramedics were called because I could not breath nore stand (after getting up and walking pony back to her stable) I bruised by coccis and my back muscles have been playing up since, even emptying the dishwasher hurts.
I am dreading cutting the grass (it does help having a self-propelled mower) and building a veg patch next weekend.
Afties all. Have not put nose out of doors yet apart from letting Maggie the solo chicken out of bed.
Dan, that sounds extremely nasty - I'm sure building a veg patch is not going to help!!!
Sue - hope the party was worth it
Derek, envious of your near-heatwave! Can I move in with you, please
Bunny, meant to say I love your little hat
The chickens have found a perfect spot
