Morning girls. Still a howling gale here.

Have a good time at the dentist, Topbird, I hope he's gentle with you. Don't bite him!

Glad you're feeling better Joyce, but do you have to do HW? May cause a relapse.

Morning all.

God for Mum, punkdoc, right decision. But it is hard to leave the home you are familiar with.

Howling gale is still here. Veranda is full of leaves and there are twigs and bits of branches all over the place.  Horses were standing in a huddle in the middle of the paddock. They don't like wind, nor do I. There was a power cut in the middle of the night, so said the water heater.

It's a bit of a nuisance when good tenants leave your flat. Will it be easy to find new ones, Hosta? OH has an investment flat so help his pension go further, I have a small share it it, but the tenants left in the autumn. We had it all decorated and re-carpeted then the bathroom in the flat above sprang a leak. OH says it's too much bother when he's more in France than England so he put it on the market, got a buyer in 3 days! That's why he has been going off to England a lot recently.

I watched Unforgotten. I liked the ending, I was relieved, it was what I'd hoped.

Laptop seems to be working so I've read back and found you here. I also like salmon and pastel flowers and I wouldn't want carbonara without cream in it. Am I a square peg in a round hole here?

Blowing a real hooley out there, feeling a little nervous.

The version of our gardens that we long to see again

What a lovely thread at this time of year, thank you Wonky. I was looking at photos of my garden in summer the other day, but I'm used to my garden. But don't forget everyone to post your photos on this thread when your gardens start to unfold, there are already some lovely snowdrops etc. And there are links to previous garden photos. Sorry Wonky, I'm advertising, at least it's not kitchens! http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-gallery-2017/991008.html/ 

Here is a look back from me.

Been out most of the day. Had a delish lunch with friends and lots of chat.

Laptop seems to be working at the moment so just read back, but a lot to comment on and memory is hopeless. Hope everyone had a good weekend and Joyce, punkdoc and all not well people are feeling better. Going to look around the forum while laptop is behaving.

Think obelixx asked when my new car is arriving. End of April. It will be flame red, hopefully I won't lose it in the SM car park.

Have had quite an eventful day. Babysat for little grandsons this morning. This afternoon went to the Renault garage with my son, test drove a car similar to the one I want, then ordered a new car. They have offered me a generous amount for my old car. I thought it was 12, but son looked at my registration document and said it's 13. Thank you to Mum, who left me the money a few years ago when she died.

I saw that news about the wedding dress on TV about an hour ago, the young bride looked beautiful in it, such a gorgeous dress.

Tartiflette is well known here, I like it but OH doesn't. Fattening!

Morning all.

Going to babysit for son as DIL has her 6 month echography for 3rd baby due in May. Then lunch with them, then going to look at cars as mine is 12 years old.

Little black ants on your leg Pat!! Aarrggh!

I liked GW better when Alan T did it. I like him. Of course Geoff Hamilton was the best though.

Enjoyed Big Dreams Small Spaces tonight. The 2 couples worked very hard to make 2 lovely gardens.
