Just had an e-mail that brought a few tars to my eye. Some very close friends went off to New Zealand and the Australia to live and I miss them desperately even though they left about 8 years ago now. E-mail said they are coming over in May and would like to meet up. Just hope they find time to see us, as naturally family will come first in their visits.
So cold out there, just looking through the window makes me shiver.
Chickens look happy Geoff
Sue, I always gave kids/and for me a very sweet drink pushes blood sugar levels up, alcohol lowers them
So bored making chicken stock, then tomorrow the plan is to have chicken soup and cheese and spinach scones
Nooooooo-not chicken stock or chicken soup-not in front of the children
There seem to be a lot of injuries on this thread
You should throw one of you parties Bjay-and throw a kangaroo steak on the barbie
Ouch bruised coccyx!!! Take care Dan!!! I used to have a pony like that - wasn't an Exmoor was it? My DIL is having an X-ray on her coccyx this week as she slid down the stairs on her btm some weeks ago and still can't sit down properly.
Bunny - my thought s are to have a raised bed as you can then ensure that your soil is the right tilth for the plants. Easier to controll - and if necessary you can top it up with compost to keep fertiliy.
Years agoI fell down the stairs clutching my baby son.(he's 31 now) I managed to keep his head up but his leg was trapped under me, so it was broken Put him back with walking by a couple of months or so - still makes my tummy churn when I think about it
Did you get a visit from Social Services?-only ask because our eldest banged his head as a child-ended up in Casualty-nothing serious but within 24 hours there was a concerned health visitor at the door
No Social service. i was in a bit of a state as well and my back has not really been sound since.
As the years went by spent alot of time in A&E. 3 very energetic and sports mad kids but no social services. In one year son no2 managed to break at different times all extremities ie 2 ankles and 2 wrists. we were quite relieved when they all left home. Son no1 still visits A&E on a regualr basis - hockey player
Ours stuck lego up his nose- as you do
I fell out a tree a few years ago and broke a wrist-didn't know till 2 weeks later when it still hurt
Glyn-so no picture of the hair do either then?
When are we jetting off-do I need to pack anything special?
Sitting here depressing myself. I have so many veg's I want to try this year, but not the space to do them I fear. I've done a sort of garden plan, which involves halving the garden, and taking up half the grass,and leaving Jess a bit for playing, but still don't think it will be enough. Doesn't help only half of my garden gets full sun. I wonder if Jess will mind if I take up all the grass.
Becks-what is there at the front-can't remember
There was a big in house accident a few years ago-will not go into details-but wheelchair was need for a while-now that is scary
Peppers, Cabbage, Bulb Onions, Cauliflower, Carrots, Spring Onion, Toms, Rhubarb, Plum Toms, Sweetcorn, Brocolli, Sprouts, Red Onion, Kale, Peas, Beans and Calabrese.
I used pots for my toms and peppers last year, but got so fed up with moving them round. Trouble is with my garden, the patio starts to shade early afternoon. Just going to have to choose some not to grow after all I suppose.
Nothing's at the front yet Geoff. It's just grass, but am hoping to get borders dug and prepared for flowers this year.
I would forget sweetcorn-you need a lot to get pollination-and sun to ripen
and cauliflower-tricky,cabbage is cheap in the shops
sprouts-you only a couple of plants-unless you love them
carrots do well in a container
Perhaps put some in containers at the front??
