Good luck with your move, BM, how exciting! But a lot of work. Where are you going?

Bit milder today, 3°, clouds are clearing and sun is starting to shine.

Off to make loaf of bread and some sausage rolls for the event we are going to tonight.

We are going to Suffolk for our holiday in July. Used to go to Southwold to stay with my grandparents there when I was a child. Want to show OH and visit gardens. Hope I'm not boring anyone, I've talked about it here already! Not this thread though.

DD had snow and sun today, I'm only 45 mins from her and we had neither! Cold, bleak, cloudy.

Recorded Wolf Hall as OH was at choir practice and we want to watch it together.

This is so moving, must be so difficult for Lyn. Have you contacted MacMillan nurses, Lyn? They were great when my father was dying, but he didn't have cancer, he had a brain haemorrhage and was in a coma. They were so helpful with their support for us when he was dying. 

Verdun's Mum reminds me of my Mum when she got frail.

I found DG less irritating talking about wild gardens than he was when younger and designing expensive gardens.

Snow candles look lovely and so simple to do, unlike the fantastic hand! Now I just need some snow - but I'd rather not!

How to remove HUGE shrub

We did what obelixx said to start with, then we used the garden tractor mower to pull it out. Make sure you leave some trunk behind to pull on, whether manually or with a machine.

 Have others, but getting tatty, Wintersong. You remembered what the package was! I've been repeating myself.

Alan Titchmarsh Compost

Alan said that when he makes and uses the compost it works well. I wonder if the manufacturers who produce it in bulk have changed anything. Here is the article in the Daily Mail.

Morning all.

-4° frosty.

Post service here is OK but courier is hopeless. They can never find my house even when they have written instructions. Sat Nav doesn't work but they insist on using it even when told it takes them to the wrong house. Took 3 weeks to get a package from M&S.
