PS Pdoc ....didn't see the Pogues, but did see the Waterboys at Rock City

Fidget - so glad that the JB Warren and the Hand&heart are still there.  If all goes well and Chicklet gets there (she wants to do Psychology) then I will look harder for them next time.

and Pdoc - good chance we were both at the Irish Centre at the same time ...Thursday nights, upstairs bar??  Drove past it on Weds and got unbelievably excited  that it was still there, looking as earthy as it ever did. Runny - might have bumped into your son too.  I've still got friends from those days too ......fantastic times

Totally agree on the KL front - have to turn off

Glad Panda and Dove had a great day out - great photos..... I have G. magnet - a real big one (ooo, errr)

love Claire Austin too - gonna look fab on an obelisk.

will be starting some seeds off this weekend on my windowsills....the excitement of spring is mounting.

Chicklet loved Nottingham ....the decision is made she just needs to go and get a handful of A's pressure there.  But you have to follow your heart don't you?  Esp if you're only 17 - plenty of time for plan B's.  Had a great time wandering down memory lane ....Yates wine lodge, Rock City and the Bell are still there, but couldn't find the John Borales Warren or the Hand &heart (although could have been looking in the wrong place).

I indulged myself...

Good Mornng from sunny Nottingham  (actually expect its cloudy, but havn't opened the curtains yet).  Another Uni open day for Chicklet.  Looking forward to this one as its where I went, so a few trips down memory lane to be had.  Drove past our old house last night on the way in .....happy days

Early start tomorrow, so will see you all mid-week

No problem, any time

My only excuse is that they were a)30% off in the bareroot sale b) no postage as we live close enough to pick them up c) another 10% off as a GW i saved nearly as much as i spent.  Does that mean I'm in profit for the day so far  Maybe I should go back and spend my ill gotten gains on more plants before it disappears on something else (like groceries or cleaning products)
