HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. I haven't got Christmas smilies either and I have a laptop.

You sound a nice person Clarington.

Just shifted 4 barrow loads manure into the veg garden and 3 garden trailer loads (each about 4 barrow loads) of mud and manure from the front of the winter horse shelter onto a manure heap. Knackered, shoulders ache. The joys of horse owning in the country! Looking after daughter's 2 horses too as she was sent to the north of France for work.

Gosh, Clarington, I thought you were a young one! (only 37 years to retirement) That sounds as though you are sticking up for retired parents. I love my children dearly and they don't go on about inheritance, but I've read so much recently about parents "spending the children's inheritance".

I sometimes find that when there are a lot of photos the thread blocks, has happened on Marion's photo threads and on Garden Gallery, especially when the photos are big. Don't know whether it's my lap top or the site. Usually find that when others have posted and a new page is started it's OK again.

Morning all. Only 37 years til retirement for me so I guess I ought think about getting up! Enjoy retirement Dove, but don't be like my future mother in law who upon retiring has volunteered for so much you wonder whether she ever sits down!

I'm starting to think that's what I've done!

Stacey mentioning ski ing. Spending kid's inheritance. Something I never understand is why is the money the parents have spent their lives working for and saving up (which they often use to help their children anyway) for their retirement, the children's inheritance?

Saving cash while enjoyinggardening

If I use large pots for annuals I don't change the soil down to the bottom, just change the top few inches of compost.

Lovely Bob, so right for Dove.

The Bonfire and fireworks party I was going to tonight is cancelled because of the rain.

New borders

I must dig out all the Vinca minor that is taking over the end of my big herbaceous border and smothering plants that are in there. I never planted it in the first place - don't know where it came from! Have another unplanted patch under a conifer, it can stay there.
