Bulb questions

Posted: 20/12/2016 at 10:12

Oh, what a shame. I hope you find the bulbs to replant. What did you decide to do with the Nectaroscordums?

Mine is OK too.


Morning all. Misty and grey here.


More present wrapping then I'll start on the bedrooms. They are freezing at the moment, heating off - except in ours, but that's on low. Will have to put the rads on and bleed the air out.


I saw the heartbreaking news from Berlin just before I went to bed. Sad news all over the place. Another 2 families from Iraaq will be arriving in a local village soon. Just had news of the family who arrived last December, 4 children, baby due in Feb (safely born in local hospital), they didn't speak French. They've been found housing and have been learning French and now the father has just found work. One poor young woman refugee, who has been helped by local Christians, was raped several times on her nightmare journey from Iraaq.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Weeded and tidied the greengage tree bed yesterday, and planted tulips and anemones in it. A mole had run riot, had to fill in the burrows. Didn't seem a fresh run though. Hope it's gone.

So you went to Cromer , glad you had a lovely day.


Lesley, you weren't alone wondering about a Bengal hedgehog!


Take care of yourself, Wonky.


Those lights in Regent Street are quite something, must look very impressive in real life.


I've been wrapping Christmas presents for the family this afternoon, not finished yet. Expecting 4 children & spouses and 9 GCs for the w/e.

Morning all.


Happy birthday to Dove's lovely OH. I know he's lovely 'cos I've met him! I hope you both have a good day and the weather is kind.


Plan for the next couple of days is housework, putting up decorations, window cleaning, making up beds for the family and wrapping presents - ouf! (whew in English)

Great looking winter veg, all I have is in the freezer apart from some manky looking curly kale which isn't as curly as it looked on the photo.

We've been to lunch with friends in the local town. Now must go and plant the last of the tulips.


Congratulations to Lily P and daughter.

Morning all.


I've always been the one to make morning coffee. Didn't want to go downstairs as that meant I would have to walk the dog before coffee and having to get dressed first, so all the coffee and tea making equipment is in the bedroom.

Just read back. Busy doing Christmassy things today, the tree is up and the cards are arranged. Last cards have been sent. Christmas lunch is in the freezer. Washed up all the glasses from the Carol service.


Glad Wonky is on the mend, 'flu is horrid.


Don't worry about the baby Lily P, 4 days late is nothing, positively normal.


Very smart poles Fairy.
