Hoping Christmas brings you what you really want Stacey!

She's issues with the broadband speed Dove.

Got to venture to the bank and supermarket today. Steel capped boots on and shin guards at the ready!

Panda, I've had so little interest in the peanuts that they've gone mouldy in the feeder! Very disgusting. Although due to budget cuts the birds are only getting sunflower seeds and peanuts at the moment (and homemade fat balls but they're not going down either). I can only assume someone else nearby has a better selection!

I randomly was reading an article about a large family and it commented on how often their washing machine was on (almost every day). Well there's only two of us in this household and I'll be on my fourth wash cycle of the day come lunch time so either they meant there's very rarely a day where it isn't running all day or I've been conditioned to change my socks far too often!

No sign of anything daff like there. Although this year mine didn't seem to get a shift on until much later than everyone else's so I'm not expecting anything until May!

Never let your daughter move so close Lily else its babysitting duties non stop!


Well other half has gone to work to get a project finished on time. Since this is my first day off wasn't it nice of him to wake me at 06:30. Sunrise isn't for another hour and being the shortest day I'll be out there marking the beginning of the longer nights with my candles (don't worry KEF I don't hold with the being in the altogether - its far too cold out there!) Soon be spring!

I hope Jack likes you DD.
Inspection done; now to await the results! It seemed to all be good but I'll hold off the shopping for dog bits til we know for sure.

Morning all! 

Congratulations DD on the clever son and green light for the dog!  Our home check is tonight so hopefully his lordship will finish any tidying while I'm at work (last day before the New Year - though the emails and mobile will be attended too) and there wont be any problems. 

Garden is very windswept this morning and I've no idea where the canes protecting the onions have gone

Damsel I hope they call soon! We're having our home check on Saturday night. When I got home (around 21:00) I found my partner furiously vacuuming under the bed!

Must have these home checks more often! 

Hope your chap has a good birthday Dove. A day trip to Gt Yarmouth sounds much better than work. 

Two more days of work til the holidays start official...

What to do now?

As late as then Gemma? I'd be out at lunch on Christmas Day if I could! 

I'm like Gemna: all my seed trays are washed and my seed list getting longer everytime I nip into a garden centre. But I'll be starting my chilli seeds in January which will give me "a fix" until the frosts are over!

Growing Garlic

Posted: 19/12/2014 at 07:23

I grew garlic last year - it went in late December due to a house move and with winter so mild appeared within two weeks or so. Don't expect anything in a few days! This year my garlic went in a few weeks ago and there's no sign of growth yet (a size 13 boot print but that's another matter).

I found them very easy to grow, required very little effort on my part, survived repeated drownings from all the wet weather, and still taste very yummy!
