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
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
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
Jo the odd thing is it will reappear in the bizzarest place.
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
It is what the weatherman predicted- this low pressure is circling around for a second go
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?
Lost Gardens of Heligan
Right, I'll put that on the list. Looks as if it might take all day?
smallswan- have you been to the Eden project?
Muddyfork-is this a Nile cruise, a trip to the Pyramids ,or lounging in the sun?
Yes, went to Eden Project last year (and the sun shone nicely). Thank you for the thought.
