Planning to do the same...but don't think I will have the patience to count the blooms! I guess both sowings would be planted out at the same time though?

I think the conclusion was if you are limited to space so just have one area that a spring sowing will suffice and it doesn't make make an awful lot of difference- you just get flowers at different times

Proof that every man needs a good women for balance and stability

Morning lovelies!

Sun is shining, and lots of blue sky can be seen! Will be fetching eldest daughter soon, so no doubt my PC will be hijacked!

Hope you all have a great day! x

You may have seen a TV illusionist series earlier this year. One of the illusionist tricks was to drive a huge truck over the illusionists chest while he was lying on the ground. They showed how it was done. Just like the photo above. The truck is heavily loaded on one side, so there's no weight on the wheel that actually runs over the person.

That woman would also make a very good Olympic sailoress, where a similar skill set is required. Leaning right out of the boat allows the sails to take more wind without the boat capsizing. It's a very useful techinque.

In my limited experience that NHS phone-advice helpline is completely useless. If you still have a problem after 3 days you need to see your GP. Bear in mind that it may take several weeks to secure an appointment.

Also, it may not be too late to try start growing lots of veg (maximum range of colours is important)  and stuffing yourself with every kind of plant that might contain anti-oxidants. Don't forget water cress.

Hi Becks- is it just a fleeting visit from you today?

I want to know what happens if you turn left and Clarissa Dickson-Wright has let herself go a bit -must be all those badgers

I've just had a text to pick her up at 3pm. Then I will be downgraded to the dinosaur laptop. These kids have me wrapped around their little fingers.

How old is this one?

29/09/2012 at 12:38

This is the 15 year old. My 18 year old son doesn't come anymore since he met a girl.

29/09/2012 at 12:41

So what stage has the 15 year old reached?

29/09/2012 at 12:44

She's just starting to take an interest in boys, but her Dad is very protective, and grill's any male she talks to!  She has also just joined cadets. More boys.

Does a lot of texting and giggling go on?-what are people looking at constantly on their phones?-what do they think has happened since they last looked about- 17 seconds before?

Maybe they reached a magic number in the last 17 seconds and need to spend 10 seconds gazing at it  ;- )

My car is nearly on 98000 now, I will be keeping an eye on the numbers.

Flo! Yes Geoff, you did do that! You are a teenage trapped in an older body!

But yes, lots of texting, giggling ams Skyping!

29/09/2012 at 13:29

But I am ill-old and in need of help

Just had beans on toast again -wish me luck

29/09/2012 at 13:40

So.. You wouldn't have done that if you weren't out of sorts?? I think not!


29/09/2012 at 13:44

Well, I suppose the beans will speed things through!

29/09/2012 at 13:47

Oh I do hope not

29/09/2012 at 14:58

Now Geoff that is not a pleasant thought and what has CDW ever done to upset you?

Gary I love those shows where they explain magic tricks.
