Oh dear Geoff, the sniggering had to be subdued!

Anyway, I've finished ALL the ironing! ta da!

Now to sort through all the bags of hangers that I appear to have acquired.

Car back. All done & not too expensive either. Daughter has hers' in front of garage because she hates wheely bin day- I've yet to see them hit anything with the wagon! So swop around later on. 

It's got quite windy out there now. The rain did stop- hmm any chance for lawn tomorrow? not after checking local forecast- drat. J.

Good Afternoon Everyone  It will be so nice to have a bit of time to just sit and read everything on here    I have been really busy in the garden - still taking cuttings,chopping things down and getting plants ready for the winter . I have taken some cuttings from the Cobaea after reading FC 's post

I don't have any cake  just some cheese scones ! I will swap a cheese scone for a piece of cake - anyone ?

What a job that was !  Hubby did lions share of removing moss and weeds but I'm pooped !! Tea and couch beckons ( cake already been consumed ) . It looks so much better and while I was out there , weeded  the gravel border as well.

Becks and Jo, I would sooner do all your ironing than do that again. Next time I may feign a bad back.

Geoff,  - I have 2 more silly jokes.

What do you get if you cross a dog with a chicken ?

Pooched eggs !

What does a lady snail paint her house with ?

(S)nail varnish !

Feel free to groan, everyone .

Jo are you sure that you do not want my sunshine?

Camel train just gone past the window

20/09/2012 at 16:51

Oooh, Pooched eggs and Pumpkin pi for tea. I liked thsoe two best :- D :- |D  My second smiley acquired a moustache - a bit Terry Thomas, I think.

Errands and duties all done for the day, cup of tea and something yummy - though heaven knows what. Can't eat too much cos belly-dancing later.

Kate, another batch of choccy puffs? I must stop by Sainsbrains on the way to BD and get the wherewithal.

Just finished major make over of shady shrub border, which included sieving a builder's bag of leaf mould (2010 vintage) leaving said bag empty for this year's leaves. The dumpy bag of last year's leaves are breaking down well, but they can wait till next spring. Lifted and divided pulmonarias, threaded them through the leaf mould mattress. Planted out rooted suckers of sarcococcus. Plonked in various narcissi bulbs which had been in pots.
Uncharacteristically, I think I need cake!

Figrat - you deserve cake after that !

Just made a lasagne and found a solitary Magnum in freezer. It is now concealed behind a bag of frozen peas.

20/09/2012 at 17:04

Jean. I have to do that!! Hide good stuff from Jess. I am disgusted she has taken a liking to MY Caramac bars.

20/09/2012 at 17:12

Jean I do that too.

Figrat it will look lovely in the spring.

20/09/2012 at 17:18

20/09/2012 at 17:21
