HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 08/12/2015 at 15:17

I have a friend who has a man in from an oven cleaning service. My mother left me some money so I bought myself a Christmas pressie from her last year, a Rangemaster range It cleans itself inside, apart from the glass doors, and the gas burner top is very easy to wipe clean. I love it.

Back from Christmas shopping, all the grandchildren done now except one. I'll have to order it online, shop had run out. Bought the tree as well which is now in the garage in a bucket of water.

I agree with Little Ann, there has always been climate change whatever we humans do. We should try to look after our planet but it is all so much bigger than us some changes will happen anyway.

I felt so sorry for those poor people on the news last night, seeing their decorated sitting rooms filled with flood water made it all seem so much worse

Morning all. I'm doing the same as Lily and KEF today, pressie shopping. Have 9 grandchildren to buy for.

Oh dear DD, can't have a quick whizz around your garden. I'm taking ages doing mine. Now winter is setting in all the arthritic bits such as right knee and left fingers are playing up. I want to get a start on it so it will be OK in May for open day.

OH will be singing in two Carol Services with his choir, Riberac and Chancelade. I'm helping with decorating the Abbey and making mince pies and mulled wine and sorting out the Bible readings and who will read them for one of them.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I have plastic planters around the swimming pool, but elsewhere there are different sorts, stone, terracotta, resin etc. The only wooden one I had fell apart after some years, upsetting the clematis that was in it.

Here's another one I have just planted up, not plastic.

 Have been weeding and planting out little spring bedding plants.

 

I've been outside most of the day. Have spread the old mowings pile, the old leaf pile and a bin full of homemade compost, all mixed up, onto the long border.

Don't forget to let us know if Ma likes it, Dove.

I've been in the garden most of the day. Shall now go to the gardening thread. May post the odd photo, don't expect too much!

I was prescribed iron tablets years ago when I was pregnant. I had fainted in Church and the doctor thought I was anaemic. But I felt so rotten on them I had to stop taking them. Turned out I have a naturally low blood pressure which went even lower when pregnant.

Now I've sent a post I've suddenly had an email for this thread although no one has written in it since me!

You could cut back a couple of the oldest stems, 8 is a good number.
