HELLO FORKERS!

Lily, you haven't read back, I asked that this morning! But you're a busy working lady.

Going great guns, Dove. Good thing you didn't have the weather we've had this afternoon, only 4° and pouring.

Fairy, you actually said you are old, I don't believe a word of it, I imagined you about 27 going on 50, which isn't old. Tracey I imagine in her 30s like my daughters. My daughter No 1 is getting very keen on her garden and has bought lots of roses.

What is best around decking

Would there be any possibility of making a raised bed around your decking? You could use some solid wood and fill it with John Innes 3 or topsoil mixed with compost. Or it that too complicated and expensive? Then you could grow what you like.

Thought it was me (ex-nurse), puncdoc, lecturing you about alcohol!

So true, Mrs. Garden. I look even when I don't say anything.

Wondered who Orchid Lady was, 1500 posts and I'd never met her! Hi Tracey!

But who is rosemummy? Am I being dense? Must have met her after 221 posts.

Puncdoc (I'm sure you know already) a125ml glass of red wine has 85 calories. I can't preach because I have wine every evening! But would also like to be lighter.

I was hoping for an early start this morning before the arrival of the heavy rain that is forecast. OH didn't come to bed until after 1am. Why are men so noisy? Or is it just him? So woke at 9am, had 1 sip of coffee and friend rang, spent an hour nattering. Now it's 11.30am and clouds are getting black. Bother.

Pallets

I get them from a farm supplies shop. I use them for storing my big hay bales on to stop damp getting into the hay from below.

That's it, lily! I just needed reminding. Sometimes my brain is like a dark cupboard. I grope about for something in it that I can't find!

I'm not missing any teeth either, first OH was a dentist, son is a dentist.

Printed recipe for Dove's cake and there was another for rhubarb and ginger cheesecake so printed that too. OH loves rhubarb and ginger.

Sowed some carrots, covered them with fleece. Not done much except lots of ironing, including 2 kingsize duvet covers, felt tired all day.
