Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: 14/02/2017 at 17:50

Went to the bank, took an hour. I have a savings account and it's paid interest for years into an account without a chequebook and now the government says bank accounts have to be used every year or they'll be closed down. So cheque book ordered and internet set up. Their internet is a slow as mine!

Then I went to my favourite clothes shop and bought a top, a cardi and a dress. Rare I get the chance without OH hovering! But I haven't bought anything there since we went to New York in 2015.

Where to start

bumblelife, I've replied to your PM.

Planting hedges near building foundations

I don't think box would damage foundations.

Where to start

What are you planning to sow, veg or flowers? Broad beans and sweet peas and hardy annuals would be OK in the conservatory. Half hardy annuals e.g. Petunias, need warmth. Is there enough light in the spare room, a decent window sill, but not in full sun? I don't start sowing until March.

Morning all.

We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day either. Just a kiss at Breckies, of course. I had a Hot Cross bun from a Sainsbury's in Norfolk. I bring some home when we go there and put them in the freezer.

Heavy rain in the night. It woke me up a couple of times.

I must finish mucking out the utility room, it was in a dreadful state. That's where the seeds are that I sorted yesterday. Meeting at a bank this afternoon.

Laptop has stopped sulking for the moment and here are some more spring like photos than the previous batch.

After all that, I think I'm glad we are selling our rental flat! We used an agent as we aren't nearby.

Had laptop problems again. OH has been fiddling with it and I've managed to get here. But he can't remember what he did and in what order!

Have sorted my seeds and thrown away quite a lot. Opened packets dating from 2011. I keep buying them when I don't realise what I have already. Bit of an addict! Why have I ordered so many plug plants?

Wow, Joyce, crocuses and bellis daisies already. You are way in advance of me.

I remember it too, Salvia. It looks lovely in your photos.

I was going to post some spring photos, as that will be the next season. My last ones were more summery, but wretched laptop won't let me get to the site. This is OH's iPad.

I still wish they hadn't changed the forum.

Runny beak (see page before) never did change her name!
