Wonderful sight John  How I want a box like that My loorolls will be planted with sweetpea seeds this weekend, and tied round in a bunch with some garden twine to stop them falling over ....a box is a much more elegant solution.

on the horse muck, we have spent the last few weekends filling the back of our very old landrover with the stuff.  On the last trip it was getting dark, and we were due out, so left a full load in the back.  On the Tuesday it snowed, and OH had to use said Landrover to get to work was only when he got in that he remembered it still had a full load.  So he had to do some shovelling before he set off (and had to change his clothes again too).  But my roses will be ace this year

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
