When I was small my mother had a scullery with a copper for boiling the nappies and Daddy's hankies, and a mangle. I used to sit on the floor with a bowl of water and soap flakes and wash Daddy's socks. We had herring roes or bone marrow on toast for tea. It wasn't very long after rationing.
My birthday is in September and I'm a Virgo too. Supposed to be a home loving perfectionist. Is that why my house gets so untidy?
When the family were staying recently, baby grandson's baptism, we had champagne. I offered my 8 yr old grandson a sip and he said "Oh no, I can't, Mummy says children aren't allowed". Mummy is my daughter who would have had a sip when she was little.
70€ is about £56, but I expect you've got there by now! It all depends on the exchange rate anyway.
Morning all, cool but sunny.
Going to make raspberry icecream, friends coming for Sunday lunch. Must think of a first course.
I have lots of blackberries, but unfortunately they are brambles growing in my shrubs!
You can still get Mateus Rosé and I still like it. My father gave me my first sip of hock when I was 8, I really liked it.
That garden specialises in Michaelmas Daisies. Interesting to see it now, before they come out, I'd only seen photos of when they are out - stunning. Never been though.
I have trouble with that OL. I always feel that the seeds need to be tucked cosily under the compost.
Saw a programme last night about meat and ecology, cows eat too much and fart too much, chicken isn't too bad, mussels cost nothing to grow in Scotland except for the ropes and they don't make gas. Insects are very ecological and full of protein - could be the meat of the future!
I've searched on Google and can't find anything that eats the leaves like that. Most pests and diseases seem to start at the bottom of the onion and the evidence is quite obvious. I would be interested to know if anyone knows the answer to this one.
