Shed treatment query

We used Cuprinol Garden Shades too, I like the wood showing through slightly. Though, after a second coat it hardly shows at all. It preserves the wood but lets it breathe.

I have a bed of comfrey and my dog ignores it. Pretty when in flower and good for the compost heap.

I have a freezer full of veg, such as runner beans, broad beans, tomato purée and veg soups. There are leeks, carrots, potatoes, perpetual spinach, purple sprouting broccoli and kurly cale in the veggie garden and several trays of onions and apples in the garage.

Happy Christmas

Morning all.

We are going to a Christmas party tonight. They obviously don't watch Strictly. Hope OH has set up the recorder properly for the Final.

I'm always nice, Beaus Mum!

It's my birthday

I hope Dove's OH has had a lovely birthday, think he did from what Dove said elsewhere. That is one reason for my post, the other is so that Verdun will get royalties.

Finding a plant

I've found an anemone called Annabella Rose. The RHS says the only nursery supplying it is near Loch Ness, but they do mail order. But I think Hydrangea Annabelle looks lovely.

Morning all.

I hope things work out for everyone waiting for something. When 2 of my childrens' bags were stolen from my car they were eventually found in a wood and the Police sent them to our village Mairie. Money was gone but all keys and papers were still there, but too late - we'd got replacements.

Really must get on with some HW today. Then put the tree up. But need to get logs in before I clean sitting room. Still raining and it means pushing wet wheelbarrow across tiled floor so I'll have to wash floor afterwards.

Local carol service tonight then meal in village restaurant.

Preposterous question....

That orange cake recipe that Edd sent from Tom Kerridge is a Spanish recipe that I've made several times in the last three years. We had it for a Spanish evening in the village hall. Great thing about it is there is no fat (as such) or flour, mostly oranges, eggs and ground almonds. But it's not Tom's recipe as that page says.

What a lovely Christmas present, Matty

What a rotten thing to happen to your daughter, Susan. Two of my childrens' bags were stolen from my car a few years ago when we were on holiday. They broke the lock of my car too. Spent so long in the police station that the hotel had re-allocated our rooms, although I warned them. The whole thing was a horrible shock.
