Good morning all
The full moon is setting in the west and the robin is beginning to sing and TGIF!!!!
Kitchen spam has been reported
Can echo the TGIF - although looks like another rainy one to look forward to. Time to read some gardening mags I think.
Good morning chicky back to work today so heading for the shower - see you later- have a good day
Hi Dove - is it soon enough to retirement day to start doing the big countdown yet ??
5 working days next week, 3 the week after, then it's the Monday and I leave on the Tuesday
So as from next Monday we can start the 10,9,8..... crescendo
Morning all, very foggy here this morning. Dove you're so lucky, and with xmas , oops sorry, coming too. Loads of time to prepare and arrange. Can't stop to chat must get ready for work and I don't seem to be getting anywhere this morning! Byeeeee see you all later
Yes, that's one of the things I'm really looking forward to - prepping C******** dinner at my leisure. Instead of making things ahead of time I'm going to be able to make more perishable things closer to theh Big Day, no 'fruit cake' but a chocolate roulade 'log' is one plan
Right, off to work, driving cross country to Kings Lynn this morning - see you later - have a good day folks
Good morning everyone.
It has been raining overnight,but sunshine now with blue skies,hope it lats a bit longer although the forecast is not too good. OH always says weather is not an exact science,so don,t take the weather forecast so literally.
Going to GC this morning with lovely neighbour who has some vouchers to spend and wanted to know if I would like to help her choose some plants,it was a hard decision,but someone had to do it,,,,,
Windy, damp but very very warm. This is when the miscamthus lok so good swaying in the wind. Not so good for my underpants on the line.....er, they were on the line! Hope they don't blow Imto next door's...I have a vested interest in them ......I'll get my coat..................
Hi all. Bit late this morning I got distracted on the tele' thread.
Damp & miserable & a misty here. No excuse not to keep de-cluttering.
Think we might get walking boots out later for their first outing since April, can go for a nice walk via the GC. H is good at carrying things home
Have a good day all.
Photos of grassy bits ,please verdun.
Morning all, took me ages to get here. Site very slow and page kept coming up blank. Or is it my laptop?
Supermarket today. Need more potting compost, wish they'd hurry up and have their autumn promotion.
Lizzie, I haven't had a problem with forum. Well not yet.
Morning All (check, yes just about morning!)
Swimming this morning, certainly working us harder now, when we first started we were all very hesitant/non- swimmers now we all do a couple of lengths at a time and are learning different strokes
Hills are shrouded in heavy mist - means rain is inthe way and ut is getting darker.
Am going to do a little more of my winter project today ( not gardening weather) I am re-upholstering an old settee I bought on E-bay for 99p. I made an instant profit as I found £3.20 down the side cushions
Forum much quicker now.
Don't think Leclerc supermarket is going to do an autumn promotion. They were filling the shelves with masses of toys for C........ GC had cleared a huge space and were filling it with artificial trees and decorations. When we first came to France in 1985 we couldn't buy a real C. tree before mid December.
Dove, i have some good friends in Kings Lynn, they also breed and show bulldogs
Right back after yet another de-clutter day. Handbags gone okay. Unworn summer clothes ok. Cookery books, so so.? Mostly only looked at the pictures and have saved best ones. Gardening books..oh No no no..have managed to part with 8 ancient ones. About 30 left on bookcase. One step too far..
Autumn arriving big fashion here, Beech hedge turning, leaves dropping off most things, hosta leaves "rotting", birds eating hungrily, gathered seeds from Honesty, time to get Dahlias out, but still got a few sweet peas & Cosmos purity still going great a deffo' for next year.
Right off to make some food.
Evening Forkers me first to say evening
Me knackered garden waste bin was emptied this morning and now it is full again with lots of pampas grass bits will have to wait another 2 weeks for it to be emptied again, even got to climb up ontop of the roots of the pampas grass to clear part of top area nice view of garden from there, but it still managed to get me damn sharp grass
Lots more done tell you all later
