Morning guys, off to get some prices for some ballast to get the base for my greenhouse ready


David, think we are sorted. Mods been at work


Larger bodies and thicker body hair Dove? 

In that case - pass the cake and hold the razors - I'm in!  

Verdun - I can feel a joke coming on ....strap yourselves in! 


David - it's ok - really - put one of these on 



Thank you Daniel and friends - much appreciated support outside office hours

Lovely day here - have some planting to do and some seeds to sow.  Late last night, whilst returning from taxi duties, we saw a new, much smaller deer on the side of the road - not much bigger than a fox.  Which i think means that the muntjacs have moved in alongside our usual roe.  Hope they eat the same things, or some of my "safe" plants might be about to come a cropper


Morning all. If there was any bother this morning I've missed it! I get up too late.

Going to lunch with my 2 son's in a restaurant today. One, who lives near Orleans, with his OH and my adorable granddaughter (2) is staying with the other, who lives about half an hour from me. Both OHs are expecting my grandchildren No. 7 & 8.

Pm from Daniel.   He has sorted the WUM.

Oooo, Fairygirl .   Another joke.  Yours are superb ....almost top drawer like mine.  Think we have the same sense of high quality humour

Yes a big thank you from me too Daniel and mods, Lets hope its stays the friendly helpful place we all love.


David - he's been 'removed' so now we can get on with enjoying  this forum with all our friends here - the way it should be enjoyed 

We just have to be vigilant for anyone suspicious as it's very easy to just turn up under another name.

Need some new fencing chick? 


Good morning Chicky  Apparently roses and tulips are particular favourites 


Certainly are, FG!  Just found the single A4 sheet and there are only 6 words in total: "Set up greenhouse as below illustration".  Hmm, there is nothing below the illustration..

Luckily, I've always been able to build "flat-pack" type things without needing instructions which is a good job as It's a matter of having to in in this case!



Morning folk, do you think this problem is all sorted? I like many others have been very upset by what has happened, even if some of you may think that it is my stupidity in continually rising to the bait and my rather arrogant view that I could make him look stupid with my supposedly clever put downs.

His recent references to mental illness have made me appreciate that cyber-bullying really can cause a problem and not only for children.

I am not sure what it is best for me to to do at the moment, I have been really pleased with the improvement in my mental health over the last few months and am now concerned that this issue has had more effect on me than I thought.

I really hope that this is all over, but I may keep a low profile until I am sure that it is true. Thanks for the support I have received on here from several of you. You know who you are, and your support has been a massive help to me.


Orchid Lady

Well what a lovely sunny morning to wake up to, everyone seems jolly and there is a jolly spring like atmosphere in the air, now that the rot has been removed 

KEF, I know what you mean about crows but I'm waiting for the seagulls to realise it's getting light earlier, they play chase on my roof and as my bedroom is in the ages, it isn't amusing at 6am!!!

Well, I am off into the garden now, I've had my shredded wheat and going to sort my compost bin as a starting point and then rake over the soil in my borders, all that before 11 when I am going for a bike tide with OH......happy Saturday everyone.

PS thank you Daniel and others who sorted the issue(s).


Pennine Petal

Just popped in to say hello, do look in every now and then but don't always post.

isn't it lovely seeing everything starting to spring up in the garden. Ground sopping wet here on the Pennines. Must be awful for those with floods. Am waiting for my sighting of lambs on my way to work.


Roses and tulips are all behind bars for that reason Dove.  But quite a lot survives outside the cage - including my growing collections of hellebores (i blame you lot for that) and snowdrops.  OH is busy making more fortress protection for our new veg/fruit patch as we speak 

 Such a clever OH
