I want to go somewhere sunny.

I read an article that said that June should be the pinnacle of your gardening year, I have failed

I went into an old fashioned hardware store and asked about a secateur sharpener and he said I could buy new ones cheaper.

You need sharpening kit-she lives in Somerset

07/06/2012 at 15:36

She can't do sharpening as well as not doing cut and paste. 

I was planning to see some gardens and have a beach holiday in Cornwall ... OH says we are going to the pub a lot.

You should go camping in Cornwall to get the full experience with two small boys and two dogs

-do you surf?

I do not have waterproof trousers. I now have wet jeans on just to prove it. Should have listened to Geoff and stayed indoors but then those french beans wouldn't have got planted, those 4 slugs wouldn't have got chopped, those 4 snails wouldn't have got stamped on and those 4 strawberries wouldn't have got picked and eaten.

Smallswan, take your waterproofs.....

Kate, I have failed too.

Hallo, can anyone hear me?  My posts seem to have been barred ... I'll get me coat

There is a short period of time in the Summer when everything comes together-we haven't reached that nadir yet.

Lottie you must be steaming

07/06/2012 at 15:48

No waterproof trousers Lottie? <smugsmiley>

Seriously, it was only last year I realised that they should be fished out of my rucksac & used when 'pottering' after wet weather- brilliant!

Am having a break after paperwork sorting- now to file it all away!! How much junk do we get with everything? the shredder has got red hot too.

OH says not got the V, hmm, not convinced, but then still cant see how it fell off shelf & onto his pile of 'stuff'. Just very puzzled now- no change there then! J.

Smallswan -you have ignored yourself-go to settings and unignore

07/06/2012 at 15:56
@ Smallswan...Geoff's being serious. It's happened to a couple of posters. Go to personal settings (top right of screen), forum settings, members I am ignoring. You'll probably find yourself in there, so you can unignore yourself. We can see your posts.

Jo the odd thing is it will reappear in the bizzarest place.

07/06/2012 at 16:17

I can report we are having a sunny interval-the rain has stopped, the wind has dropped and have used this window to put the green waste bags out-just thought you might like to know.

Jo -please find this voucher or I won't settle tonight

07/06/2012 at 16:22
We had the sunny spell here in S Devon about 2 hours ago. Rain's back now with screaming wind. Batten down the hatches.

It is what the weatherman predicted- this low pressure is circling around for a second go

07/06/2012 at 16:38

Thank you so much.  Where were we ... oh yes, Cornwall.  I am not sure the gardens will be worth visiting in this weather, but which ones would you particularly recommend?

07/06/2012 at 16:40

Lost Gardens of Heligan

07/06/2012 at 16:49

Right, I'll put that on the list.  Looks as if it might take all day?

07/06/2012 at 16:52

smallswan- have you been to the Eden project?

07/06/2012 at 16:56

Muddyfork-is this a Nile cruise, a trip to the Pyramids ,or lounging in the sun?

07/06/2012 at 16:58

Yes, went to Eden Project last year (and the sun shone nicely).  Thank you for the thought.
