HELLO FORKERS!

How awful for his family, and for him not to live his life as he should have done. My brother died when he was 21, cancer of the spine. But I'm glad you are safely home, John.

Morning all.

My 2nd OH hoovers, washes up and deals with the logs and woodburners, but he's retired. 1st OH did nothing in the house but then he worked and I gave up going out to work when I had 4 children. 2nd OH was a widower so he had to look after himself for a few years. When I met 1st OH he was still taking his washing to his mother!

Another grey day but sun is forecast for next week. Hope so because local river is almost at top of it's banks.

Lovely photos Higgy.
Welcome Button and 2 dogs.

Love Little Ann's mug, want one like that!

This is what it looks like here most days, often with rain.

Morning all.

Glad Spike is recovering. Did you sleep in the kitchen, Verdun?

I'll be taking my decorations down tomorrow, 12th night. Though the French leave theirs up a lot longer.

More paperwork today. Hadn't done my filing since Jan. 2010! Now up to April 2011. Hate it  Had filed the most important things like pension papers though and tax.

I start tomatoes and half hardy annuals in heated propagators and I get them out as soon as they have germinated. But I have a greenhouse with a cold frame in it that has a heated cable buried in damp sand and I put young seedlings there. The GH also has an elderly little heater that keeps frost off. Otherwise it is a struggle. But I don't start sowing until spring.

My onions store very well in the garage. They must be really well dried when you harvest them. I just put them in wooden fruit trays.

Not yet, I hope ginagibbs, unless you've got somewhere warm enough to keep the tomatoes as they grow too tall for the propagator. March would be better.

what's eating my lemon geranium leaves - now!

One year little green caterpillars ate the leaves of my geraniums that were overwintering indoors, they were tiny to start with so I didn't see them at first.
