Read Monty's new book recently - it was Noel FP who sorted Nigel out a couple of years ago when he broke his back leaping in the air.

Morning all - rain seems to be a common theme. We have it here too☔️☔️☔️

Might potter in to local town later, have some things to pick up, and chicklet might come too .....we'll have a go at being "ladies who lunch".  Certainly no garden plans

Perennials in 9cm pots

This one always confuses me.  I had read that you shouldn't pot things on at this time of year, because the roots won't grow in to the new space and all that will happen is that the plant will sit in wet compost - not good.  On the other hand a 9 cm pot is not much protection  for the roots if we get any icy weather...what to do

Morning all

Well done Pdoc - good thing you were there (both for neighbour and for shoes).  Keep looking DD - always good to have a few options up your sleeve.  It'll happen soon I'm sure.

Chicklet arrived home about midnight last night - soooo lovely to see her.  Looking forward to the weekend

Ooooooo sparkles every time please ✨✨✨

Chicklet comes home for the weekend today - very excited🎉

Also very sad - Littlest Chicklet went to school with one of the poor girls mown down by a car whilst jogging on Tuesday night.  Unimaginable what those families are going through.  And such a waste - both such talented girls

More scared than I have ever been in my adult life.

Think I will impose a personal blanket news ban for the next few weeks (or four years) - ignorance is probably the better option over something that I can do nothing about.
