So delighted Matty - now you can concentrate on getting over the op - look after yourself....the garden's going nowhere

Thoughts go out to others. "Because we care" is so true.  Sometimes I think not caring might be an easier option- but what an empty life that would be.  So I'll carry on caring - pretty sure the good times outweigh the bad - even though thats sometimes hard to remember.

Morning all

I'll be windscreen scraping in a short while.  Traffic has been more than dreadful all this week - taken 2.5 hours to do the 30 miles.  Only upside is that once the regular radio is over, i have been catching up on my GQT backlogs.  Doesn't seem so bad sitting there when I have Chris, Matthew, Bunny and Bob to chat to me

Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

Tootles - i leave mine plugged in all the while I use it - its only a very gentle heat, so hardly takes any power (i've got a smart meter, so I checked)

Can vouch for north Norfolk too - my favourite aunt lived there and we spent a week there every year with the chicklets.  Loads to do and see - seals at Blakeney (a la winterwatch), shire horses, farm parks, dinosaur centres, the beach at hunstanton, walks in the woods..........happy days.

Hooray Beau.  All that finger crossing worked.  So excited for you, and can't wait to see pics of the new plot.  What you need is some garden visits in the spring to give you inspiration and ideas

Lyn - huge hugs - nothing more I can say really. Its the most difficult thing in the world, but you are doing all the right things.  

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Checked mine this morning too - Sainsbury's own is certified British and supports dairy farmers ..... But obviously not enough! It seems somes people would pay more if they knew it went to the farmers - so they need to get a proper labelling/certifying system that actually means something and is not just marketing fluff. Need Jamie O on the case !
