11/07/2012 at 19:47

Woo2 were you doing what I was doing pressing forward on the pages I was going to give up till I also discovered it too. duh!!!

Good luck with seeds

11/07/2012 at 19:49

Woo2 you can also change your settings so that you are always sent to last post, was quite a relief when I found that.

We have had a dry afternoon, so I have been able to walk around the garden at my parents and I have selected a number of plants that I would like cuttings from. I will need a bigger garden. I have  been given a gorgeous geranium now but even with this damp weather I feel it is a bad time to move plants.

Jenny -we bought an ice cream maker last year as with all these things I have played but now leave it to the kitchen-the recipe comes from a Ben and Jerry book

There is always tomorrow Jo -or the next day or the day after that-go out for 20 minutes- it will arrive then

Katie how do you change your settings to be sent to last post i havent discovered that one.

Geoff I have a very simple lemon ice cream using a jar of homemade lemon curd or tesco finest I could substitute that for my homemade strawberry jam Your full of ideas for me tonight

I've just bought an ice cream maker...highly recommended! Home strawberry ice cream is very more-ish.


Lemon curd ice cream sounds delicious. We have chickens too, so eggs won't be a problem. Yet.

@Jenny if you go to settings, then forum settings, Thread starting page set as default to last.- hope that makes sense.

Why is so much tv no good at the moment-got something on about small animals at the moment-not impressed

Line of Duty still compelling though

Does any body else want to make use of my menu planning skills?

11/07/2012 at 20:33

Some of us are not allowed to watch tv

I have sausages for tommorrow, what can I accompany them with?

11/07/2012 at 20:36

You could have what I call cowboy dinner-baked beans, mashed potato, fried egg, tomato ketchup---white hat

Not watching tv is what you do on holiday


11/07/2012 at 20:36

Locally we have bread sauce  (and other stuff of course) with ours, Kate.

11/07/2012 at 20:45

I have never had bread sauce with sausages, that break with convention could scare the old folks. I may go cowboy style.

Geoff if I could reach you would get a thump for that, I will need a holiday once I have left the Cornish riviera, this house is so old it is hard work.

11/07/2012 at 20:55

I didn't mean you are on holiday -it is just when one goes on holiday one doesn't watch tv so not watching tv when not on holiday is like a punishment,

Glad we have cleared up that one-am out of harm's reach anyway


11/07/2012 at 21:01
thank you peeps I've changed my settings, simple when you know how lol!
11/07/2012 at 21:31

Geoff I have exceptionally long arms The other thing that is weird is that I live on the top of a  hill with excellent views of neighbours activities, it is really odd being in a valley, so dark and with no one to spy on.


11/07/2012 at 21:32

As is everything-now on old London streets- this is better

11/07/2012 at 21:39

Are you taunting me with your tv watching?
