Don't Know what happened there! I must have burpt! !
Jean! The frost free Jobbies are "Kleim's Hardy" I Have three! n there wax like flowers are absolutely stunning!
Back from fishing- a bit of a waste of time -they were in the pond he was getting rid off but pump not working- full of silt-managed to catch two who are now happliy swimming in the tank-might go back another day
Noticeably colder than this morning-still alive
Been clothes shopping - yuk! Didn't find any shoes (I have wide feet) which is ironic as it's Clarks Village. Mind you, I have never found any shoes to fit me there - I'll have to go back to my favourite proper shoe shop in Crewkerne again.
Sleeting here and bitterly cold. Saw ickle lambs in the fields but the poor things looked frozen and were huddled under the hedge banks.
Bought lots of seeds very cheap in Lidl's, also some bird netting for £5. They still had fruit trees for £3.99 (I think) but I didn't buy one. Bought chocolate......
Weird, clothes shopping on Sunday. In France shops are shut on Sundays, except the odd small supermarket in the morning. GCs are open (some) but shut for lunch.
12 for lunch today, all gone now, dishwasher on. Now feel knackered, it would have been a good gardening day, 14° sun and cloud.
Liz - 14 ?? Think it's 4 here.
Will investigate those Gardenias Dean - quite fancy one.
Good bargain hunting Goldi - Aldi also have cheap seeds - 39p. Got some Nigella . . On the choc front just found a Toblerone dessert in the bowels of the freezer so will be getting stuck in later.
What have you named your new fish Geoff ?
Been to do my duty and seen M. Took her a new skirt, seemed far more practical than chocos she'd forget to eat or flowers that would die in a day as it's so warm. Bitterly cold and every now and again snow flakes appear but then don't stay - must go on to the levels
Jean, I'm in SW France but you proably know that by now. It can be very cold too.
I had one of those Gardenias - house warming present - alas it did not survive but have been tempted to try again now we are not so chaotic
Liz . yes - know you are in France but always thought weather was similar to UK apart from the South. I'm jealous - want to come and stay.
Think this cold weather is having an effect on my appetite.
Roast beef with all the trimmings followed by that rather nice dessert.
Can't wait - trying to stop myself from having a snack.
Butterscotch instant whip?
Should I name them Jean?-what about grilled and fried??
Can you remember days before 24/7 shopping-how did we cope?
No, Geoff - one of these.
Need to have a good delve in that freezer - may be some more goodies. that was supposed to be for Christmas.
Serves 6-8 Don't think so,
Jaws and jaws 2 ?
Oh that-we had a Baileys Desert in the freezer had it a couple of weeks ago -it was yummy
Still fancy butterscotch instant whip
Stop it - I'm starving . That Baileys Dessert was yummy . We had one at Christmas with cream that was flavoured with Baileys as well.
Ooooh - the calories ,
Roast chicken here-not home made
Can you not eat early Jean?
Hi, all--recovered from my ferry trip to town---saw a pod of whales on the way!
Flo, consider if you get a king sized bed you have to buy the bedding--and sheets cost a bomb!
Indulced myself at the GC--bought a bonsai willow[not cheap, but it's my birthday next week, so there] also a clematis armandii in full bloom--3rd time lucky, I hope . Lost the previous 2 one I weed whacked, the other didn't survive when I moved it. There may have been a few other purchases as well, plus a major bulk grocery shop. Was taking my friend to the hospital for a minor procedure, so the trip was free! [the fare, that is].
Yesterday I planted and repackaged food--last of the sun for awhile, although I did put up the patio umbrella. And we sprang ahead last night--it's earlier every year!
Happy Mother's Forkers! Here in NA it's not until May.
Bunny.. wrote (see)
Anything exciting happened today ???
I just splashed hot fat on my finger putting the veggies in the roasting tin......ouch!
