JUST FOR MIKE

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 09:03

You're a brave man, Mike, but I hope the Doc can give you something better for pain.

I know what it's like to lose someone, but I was only 47 when he died. Over 15 years ago. Have re-built my life since, but wanted to die at the time, although I have 4 lovely children. Met 2nd OH 6 years ago. When I look back I think it is probably easier being widowed earlier (never easy) but will probably have to go through it again, he's older than me.

Lavender Lady, your garden has come on so beautifully, I remember seeing photos when it was much newer. A real haven of peace.

Just wondered, don't want to start a religious debate! I'm C of E. Anyway, glad that you are better enough to come back here, Mike.

Glorious day today, lots of roses out in my garden.

Night all.

I'm going to lunch with son No 2 and DIL and new baby grandson tomorrow.  DIL's parents will be there. I've made a choc mousse, but forgot to add the last egg white so it's very dark and chocolatey. Taking lettuce and strawberries from garden too.

You seem amazingly cheerful about it all! Because it couldn't have been pleasant with all the shock of it all and the unpleasant tests and then the op. But great that everyone was so nice. Are you by any chance a Jehovah's Witness, or something, that talk about transfusions?

Sunny but still quite windy. Spent most of the day in the flower garden. Planted annuals and a few perennials, such as penstemons from cuttings and salvias from plug plants, in all the gaps in the middle bed where there were tulips and daffodils. But found evidence of mole tunnelling  Weeded round the sundial and dug up the old violas, planted blue farinacea salvias and yellow limoncello petunias, grown from seed.

Glad to see you puncdoc, relief that you are still alive.

Yummy looking cakes, Fairygirl.

Then he could have shown us cheaper methods without mentioning names.

I've made a warm propagator using my old dog's (who died) plastic basket filled with sand with a heating cable in it - bought cheaply on the internet.

You can't compare Masterchef, that is a competiton, GW isn't. The equivalent would be one of the gardening shows, like Malvern or Tatton Park. Chelsea being like one of the professional chef competitions.

Delia Smith, certainly in her early shows, cooked in her own kitchen using fairly normal equipment.

I've started clearing them to make room for summer flowering plants.
