London (change)

I cannot believe those were their business ideas, very lame in my opinion. I did get the impression that Jade had changed her mind and was off to make drunken jellies. Nick will probably be a huge success in the future.

The skies are clearing I may be able to do some gardening today.

04/06/2012 at 11:34

Have been outside but there is a chilly wind-have made up 4 more wall baskets with the new guinea busy lizzies but waiting for more to flower to complete the task- they seem so slow and trying to get one colour in each one-2 to go-perhaps later in the week .

The BBC have apparently been hammered for their coverage of yesterday's pageant.


04/06/2012 at 12:01

Deservedly so - it was pretty pathetic.

04/06/2012 at 12:29

I agree they seemed to have too many presenters and not enough research.

I had a good 40 mins in the garden before it rained, I had hoped to plant out more dahlias while the ground was wet.

Have you ever grown Amaranthus, my seedlings look more like Verbena??

04/06/2012 at 12:39

Never grown amaranthus-Alina will know

Just seen enormous beetle black and around 2 inches long-a female stag?


04/06/2012 at 15:21

Anyone fancy a chocolate rice-crispie cake-have just made some-you will need to be quick

04/06/2012 at 15:52

Sounds more like a cockroach to me.

I managed to plant a dahlia and 6 verbena bonariensis before it rained.

Did you make them with your own fair hands?

04/06/2012 at 16:05

It was not a cockroach or I would have ate it

I did make them- on a whim-I am quite capable if I feel in the mood-not many left now.

Are we watching pop people tonight?

04/06/2012 at 16:11

I may record it and fast forward, if I remeber correctly there is a lot of padding.

Are they tasty? 

04/06/2012 at 16:16

Tasty? Tasty?-they are like me all brown and bloody gorgeous

There will be padding whilst they constantly reset the stage-Robbie will sing Angels-OH will cry

04/06/2012 at 16:20

I would never imagine cockroaches to to be gorgeous.

04/06/2012 at 16:25

I don't know they breed pretty quickly so something must find them gorgeous-probably another cockroach.

I am going to have to re-post the quiz-need more contestants.


04/06/2012 at 16:38

I have spent my drachma already, need new T&Cs.

Everything has a predator

04/06/2012 at 16:44

I am not eating cockroaches but just had another crispie cake.

04/06/2012 at 17:16

I have no cakes, no biscuits, no chocolate, time to go shopping will they accept drachmas


04/06/2012 at 17:19

What's a grecian urn?

04/06/2012 at 20:06

Delighted to find Jo on this thread, and to hear she is doing well. I am inundated with tent caterpillars--a real plague this year. They must taste nasty, as the birds won't eat them. They certainly look disgusting when I squish them.

Oh, and Geoff-A Grecian urns several drachmas a day, but pays no taxes.

04/06/2012 at 21:26

Ok here goes

2) mite invade your greenhouse
3) Queen of Tonga or somewhere like that
4) Florizel Street (or was that a disinfectant?)

04/06/2012 at 21:33

2 right and one nearly right as it is you -3 points.

04/06/2012 at 21:34

Oh bother, hit the wrong key

5) a Walk ;- )
6) centipede with a wooden leg
7) Queen of the fairies
8) right (or left) (or forwards)
9) cricket
10) Prince Charles
1) woodworm - it's too boring !!!!!!!!!!

If I win the drachmas (unlikely) pass them on to someone who's going to Greece cos I'm not.
