HELLO FORKERS!

Morning All

Our storm let up a bit during the night, but more seems to be on its way.  Looks like littlest Chicklet's train to school is going to be on a deliberate go slow because of the winds.  Not looking forward to my drive to work much ....I have lots of podcasts loaded on to my phone, just in case there are delays

On a brighter note, I have a garden club meeting to look forward to this evening

Think someone up there has left the hosepipe on. Never heard rain like it. Keep safe peeps.

Heat mat or electric propagator

I guess it depends just how much you grow that requires heat.  You could always put seed trays with lids on top of the heated mat to get the same effect of keeping the whole area warm.

((Hugs)) DD ....and then some more ...(()).  Lots of relationships work in mysterious ways - I know lots of people think Mr Chicky is a figment of my imagination, he is so rarely seen.  But I've got used to doing things "our" way, and it doesn't bother me any more.

If keeping busy works for you then keep on busying away ...the new job sounds like it will be a lot of fun.  The dedicated plant budget sounds like an inspired idea too

Hope the move goes well tomorrow Lizzie ..... Hope your boxes are waterproof .....and you have kept wellies handy too.

Glad you are recovering Yvie - hope Mr Y is soon on the mend too.

Great photos DD - sounds like you all had fun

Thanks for littlest Chicklet's birthday wishes.  The big day is actually today, but she is at work, and Chicklet has to set off back to Nottingham late afternoon.....so we made yesterday the day of celebrations  

Lovely sunshine here today - think we'll go for a walk.  Then Chicklet and I are going to sample the coffee shop where the birthday girl will be slaving away.

Have a good day folks - make the most of the lull before the next storm sweeps in

Sounds like a stressful journey Fidget, but glad you made it ok.  Enjoy your honeymoon under the sea. Let us know if you find any octopus's gardens

......sorry Hosta - I'm sure that apostrophe is in the wrong place....I've tried it every which way and none look right.  Maybe it would work better with octopi ....but I'm pretty sure that's not right either.  

And on that little grammatical conundrum, I will bid you all night night

Leadfarmer - I went to this when he came to Camberley last year - it was a great evening. He tells a really good story, and comes over really naturally.  Hope you enjoy it
