Hello Forkers December

Morning all.


Good luck job hunting Clari. I hope you find one where they treat you well and pay you more.


I must start the Christmas cards. Must finish the middle bed and plant the tulips in it. Must put another 7 barrow loads manure on veg garden.

We watched the mad fun couple doing up the Chateau, then the Irish family with the English mother. Don't really care for I'm a Celeb.

Was disappointed with Elaine's singing, too.


Glad Rinder went, he's been getting on my nerves for weeks.

I really liked Claudia's dress, very pretty, more feminine than usual. First dress I've liked on the presenters. But then I'm over 50

What is your weather like? (2)

Were you on holiday Victoria? Not ill, I hope.


OH braved the cold yesterday and took down the bean poles.


Much warmer today, 14° this afternoon. Been in the veg garden since we came home from the Christmas fair. Weeded an area where I've heaped 7 barrows of horse manure.  Had to stop because it's getting dark.


OH has mended the GH window which has been wonky for years, it's polycarbonate and it blew off recently.

I have inherited silver too, that gets an annual Christmas clean. Haven't done it yet.


Having the other half of yesterday's fish pie tonight. It was too big.

Dahlias - leaving in!

My soil isn't sandy, it's drained because the garden is terraced on a slope and the beds behind retaining walls are like huge plant pots!
