Hi all, you seem to have a fun day! I however, tripped over in front of my students, 2 colleagues stopped me hitting the ground, but I hurt my little finger knuckle joint on the right hand and can't hold anything properly. To type properly but what's different there?

I'm here -it is recorded anyway-there is too much going on in Weatherfield-will watch it in bed in the morning

I think you need to be a Mother to understand -go through this every year hoping off-spring do their duty without being prompted

My mother couldn't be doing with all the Mother's Day faff. I did phone her, or maybe make that a weekend to visit as I lived afar mostly. I don't have childer myself, and Mum has been dead nearly 16 years so all the hype can get a bit much sometimes.

But, more to the point of the dibber, I managed half an hour digging the allotment on Monday and Tuesday after assembling the raised bed on Sunday. My garlic and onions that I planted before Yule seem to be growing. It's been raining again for a couple of days, but I shall try to get out there tomorrow.

I don't have a television any more, but Monty Don gets right on my thrupnees I'm afraid. Especially after witnessing him doing his piece to camera at Hampton Court one year (I worked for a nursery that had a show garden) when he was behaving like a complete diva and really peeing off the poor camera operators.

Ooh nasty, Dean, couldn't you get any cream for it.
08/03/2013 at 20:34
Some of our mothering didn't happen as planned Geoff ...

I shall set up wood burner with picnic rug and tasty bites : D
Seeeeee they know what to buy you . I showed mum pic of roses I had bought and she loved the red Paul's scarlet image I found so sall try and get her one for new arch
I rarely see mine Mother's Day these days with work consuming weekends and mil !! she doesnt mind i know that as has sons and grandchildren but I always make sure now she always gets roses
She never had them before now the always flower ...and phones me to say "my rose" has flowered
08/03/2013 at 20:40
Understand goldie !

Hehe @ monty on ya thrupnees that's your Tupeney piece where I'm from

I'm not into monty hence the record part ...

Is it worth watching on iPlayer? My computer is getting a bit geriatric and starts to get 'sticky' part way through playing stuff, so I won't bother if it's not.

After all, I have James Martin to watch tomorrow.......

Sad old bats'R'Us.

08/03/2013 at 20:56
I haven't watched so no idea ...it's recorded , il watch tomo ... Sticky is just buffering

Now then James Martin but if I lived with him I'm I'd be HUGE with his cooking

I won some tickets to see James Martin live once - he was very entertaining.

I was this close to him.....
