oh dear!!

I think it is a light entertainment programme at the end of the day. Len is acting like its a serious competition which it really isn't, and an awful lot of people have called for him to leave,which he will, like Bruce did.

Part of the older generation I suppose !!

Never mind we all have different opinions no need for a falling out lets try and keep it light hearted no one needs to get upset!

Christmas of yesteryear

I often think it would be nice to go back in time,maybe Charles dickens a Christmas carol?!

but id have to take with me central heating,antibiotics etc.

My husband sometimes reads a Christmas carol out loud, but I cant help thinking of black adders a Christmas carol,and tiny tom!

bbc2's wartime farm was good, the one at Christmas time very mum remembers going to the cinema to see the wizard of oz with her dad,and my grandma being furious with him as she was so cold when they came home,but mum only remembers the thrill of going to the cinema.

i never danced around my handbag I can assure you!

I don't think we really imagine it is an actual dance competition. it is celeb's having a go a dancing and a popularity contest really.

I remember Come Dancing when that was on the tv,now that was a dancing competition! And I didn't like it.

but I was only little..and not a dancer!

did you see trixiebelle on take two last night ?

they were so nice! not at all miffed from being booted off. smiley and happy.

so different to Brendan or James who would've been having a fit.

Remember when Kelly Brook was in a few years ago?she got booted of,i think Brenda did an illegal lift,and then Karen the pro-dancer got told off too when she was first on.

I think Len should have clarified the point early on in the season,and Trent was a bit cheeky,which Len punished him for.

I read an interview in the telegraph today with Pixie,she seemed fine about it all, not fussed at all!

I wish I was! and I shall watch it on Saturday,but it will be the poorer programme without her.

oh well.

whatever we think of pixies exit(and I think it was wrong)the final now will be sub standard. I love Caroline and Frankie, but they are not technically as good as Pixie,and haven't been consistently as good. As for Mark and Simon, I just don't get it,I don't think they are that good.I think Len had a grudge against Trent after he said he was a rule breaker; this often happens,look at Brendan,and James. Len likes them to be put in their place,and for him to be the top dog.

What a shame,I was looking forward to some good dancing,and didn't mind who won,just wanted Pixie to get to the final because she is the best dancer,and a joy to watch.Now I doubt if I will be bothered.None of the final competitors can improve any more so it wont be worth watching.

And I cant believe Im that bothered I was furious last night!!

be careful about frosts. ive been to Guernsey many times and the chap by icart point that has a great café there grows them. I know one year he lost them all to cold weather, which Guernsey very rarely has.

I grew one but it but it died when I brought it inside in a pot.

my dads growing one now in his garden and its got to about 4ft, hes looking at making some kind of glass/plastic cover for it, I know people down south can keep them in a sheltered spot so I hope that's where you are glyn!

good luck and let mus know how you get on .

I wonder if the producers keep giving Anton rubbish dancer's to make him think about leaving?!!

poor judy,she is rubbish, but I read an interview with her about dunblane, and she said after that she can get thru anything,and a few horrible comments about her dancing doesn't bother her.shes having the time of her life!

but what will happen if she gets thru, and 2 of my favourites get in the dance off?like caroline and Frankie?!it could happen!then we all get cross,like last year,and the other years...

Perennial planting time?

Posted: 04/11/2014 at 09:09

hi guys

I ordered  agastache  "black adder" and Echinacea purpurea from a gardening catalogue for my birthday in September;i didn't realise they wouldn't be delivered until this month.

do I plant them when I get them, or put them into pots and plant in the spring? I only have a mini wooden greenhouse,which doesn't offer much protection,only from the rain,and my windowsills are full of other plants bought inside.

I have looked in my books and on the internet,and it seems rather conflicting advise.I suppose it depends on the winter we get?!

any suggestions? thanks.
