'Boggle' is a game isn't it. we have one in our caravan

Thanks for help Bunny camr to nothing as ever, But I have now a pattern for a hat - will show you when done

Just been attempting to find some photos for garden gallery but could only find 2 that were in 2011. Sure I have more up to date - any way posted

OH came back from shops with a net of logs as nk way can he get down garden to chop ore wood. Expensive way of doing it I think

Bjay - just been looking at your begonias on the other thread . Yours are massive , mine are just breaking bud . Hope that doesn't mean mine aren't going to grow well.

Sausage and egg buttie here  Just came back from garden centre - snow ploughs been out so roads pretty clear now . OH drove - not me. Nothing exciting , just a blokey bit for water feature that won't be getting sorted today.

Has Flo been around today?-or has she fallen down a hole?


23/03/2013 at 14:27

That is only the one tray though and the corms are very big. On the other 2 trays they are just budding and on one are a couple of small leaves. Still, although I say it myself, I'm quite pleased with them Thanks

I was sure I had a photo from last year with a big bloom the size of my hand, but can I find it

It stopped snowing about half hour ago, think there's more to come though

Hey that's my warren hole
23/03/2013 at 14:39

I feel left out-no snow-just cold and damp

My tomato seedlings need potting on-they have nowhere to go.

Hello oneanall.

Have been standing about in a very muddy field since 9.00am. As you do.
There is a local Food Festival going on and the dog rescue was offered a free pitch. No, not for a hot dog stall! Two of us set up and did the first stint from 9 til 12. I'm the van driver today so was stuck until OH came to get me. He was an hour late with a raging hangover. I'm just warming up and will be going back later to pack away and drive van assuming it hasn't sunk up to its axles in the mud.

Geoff - you can have every bit of mine. Hate the stuff. All my plans been put on hold - again.

23/03/2013 at 14:43

Afties all - cough, splutter .  Feeling better with regards to headaches/high temp/b.p. but chest still bad.  OH still applying the Vick

BJay - I had to laugh at mental image of scarey cat sneezing itself off sofa.  By the way, I don't have a knitting pattern for an egg cosy but I do have one for a little chick which can be "stuffed" or is the right size to "insert" creme egg (awaits schoolboy humour comments)

Here's one I made earlier (last year actually)


23/03/2013 at 14:43

Same here Jean!!

Oh Flo! Cold??

23/03/2013 at 14:43
Shouldn't have started so early Geoff
23/03/2013 at 14:43

23/03/2013 at 14:44

Flo - you must be freezing . I've only been out for half an hour and it's baltic out there.

Hope you did well on the stall to make up for it.

23/03/2013 at 14:45

Yes, Becks, about 4 degrees. But no wind or rain to speak of so mustn't grumble

Caz - so cute

23/03/2013 at 14:46

Touche Miss Bunny

23/03/2013 at 14:47

Jean, the coldness was a good excuse to indulge in a hot wild boar sausage baguette

23/03/2013 at 14:49

Flofrozen - sounds awful out there!  Haven't ventured outside for 2 days and it's not even bad weather here.

Bunny -

My healing hands are at the ready for those cold and ill


23/03/2013 at 14:53

Back from the gurt town, safely back in Trumpton. I came, I shopped, I scarpered!

I bought 2 tops, one pair of trowsis, two pairs of shoes (but I have to wait for one pair to be delivered as they only had them in beige in the shop - no way am I wearing beige!), one flat cotton sheet, two cotton pillow cases and......A CAMERA . It's charging its battery now, but I shall take it out to the allotment (and lots of other places probably) tomorrow. I have a couple of SLRs, but I wanted something that would fit in my pocket.

What a lot of snow, you poor things. Just bitterly cold and damp here, the same as Geoff.

Off to the pub for a little while - all that shopping has fried my brain!

23/03/2013 at 14:55

Goldi - a successful shop and now the pub. That sure beats standing about in a field
