So glad you got your rain Inka! Must be heaven! 

Did you do earlies or main crop Lottie. All my earlies have been harvested now. Hoped they'd at least go until a yearly event that is happening in December which celebrates the birth of our Lord!

Our Lord Simon Cowell has just had his birthday

Lottie-I am not wearing a big boys baby-gro-I will look stupid- and that will never do

12/10/2012 at 16:22

Geoff I can see you in tiger print.

12/10/2012 at 16:32

Inka are you doing a rain dance to celebrate?

Becks, I grew both - most of the earlies have been eaten (apart from a few I just dug up), and the main crop are now dug and ready to store in paper sacks.

I would look good in leopard print!

What a plonker

 will get this tomorrow

Personally I prefer the T-Rex dinosaur suit, as modelled yesterday.

12/10/2012 at 17:02

Gary not sure it would be very incognito

Lottie do you have a lot of leopard print clothing

I have shredded and hoovered and now it is time for some chocolate cake before I start dinner.

12/10/2012 at 17:03

Am planning on going for afternoon tea, Gary - the T-Rex suit may not fit in the tea shop!

It is past the Asda deadline and we haven't had  an update- do I need to organise red cross parcels?

Did anyone see Antique Road trip yesterday. A visit was made to a place I'm ashamed to say Titchmarsh (no disrespect) came from. My bluff was called when I thretened to fil the previous garden with the little fat dumpy things - somehow they went with Honey fungus!- so I was taken to it and one was chosen for me. He does have a wheelbarrow and now character as his nose was broken in the move. Yep I have a gnome!!!!

12/10/2012 at 17:11

I am celebrating, Lottie----only one small leak in the roof so far! I am finishing off yesterday's bacon and mushroom quiche for breakfast, and plan to curl up with a good book this afternoon. The dogs looked quite puzzled on their morning walk; guess they had forgotten what rain is like--wet!

12/10/2012 at 17:13

Lottie I still need to know when you are coming so that bunting and a parade can be organised-do you have a big entourage?

I like a gnome

Chicken pie tonight

12/10/2012 at 17:14

hey Inka dog. Makes my muddy rainsoaked garden feel like an oasis

12/10/2012 at 17:16

Geoff I think you may have to rally the troops.

Lottie maybe you need something a bit more Ilsa Lund,  a rain coat would do it. Geoff could come as Rick.

bjay we need a photo as proof

12/10/2012 at 17:20

Yes, I did see Antiques Road Trip. It came from Cornwall. They featured a museum of quaint wireless sets. Road Trip is on now. Must rush.

Nothing wrong with having gnomes, or fairies. They add character to a garden.

12/10/2012 at 17:41

Geoff - no entourage, just me and OH. I had some Avios points to use (use them or lose them) so we decided on a weekend away but didn't want to travel too far. The plan is to visit some local attractions - OH has Beaulieu in mind. We have a hotel booked for 2 nights next weekend (as in a week today)!!

I opened today's post at work to find that the council have written to us about planning permission - ASDA want to build a store practically next door! Yes please, would be so convenient! Not sure the houses down the road will be too impressed though. 

12/10/2012 at 17:41

Meet Titchmarsh sitting on the mushroom stump. The other one doesn't have a name but he lives in the fairy dell. Name suggestions???

And I dashed out with road trip on for this photo. Charles Hanson valued a clock for me once. He was just as enthusiaistic about my old clock as he is about everything else he finds

Asda deliveries are the biggest ar*****es in my book at the moment. Still no delivery. Just been put through to the duty manager of the depot where it is coming out of, and he found my uncompleted order out there in the warehouse. So yet another £10 goodwill voucher has been added to my account, and a guarantee of it turning up tomorrow morning, as he is on duty again. Will it turn up, I don't know. Very peed off at the moment.

Your chicken pie sounds nice Geoff.

12/10/2012 at 18:25

bjay very cute, can you not call the other one Monty?

12/10/2012 at 18:31

Oh Becks how annoying  Geoff will send the boys around for you. Make sure that they do a fresh shop or your use by dates could be out of date.
