Hey Bekkie that must be my rain. Send it this way the garden is suffering terribly!

I ordered from the RHS early this year - very expensive but the plants were well boxed and in good condition.

Its life KEF. At least its my job on the line and not my health (I start that battle on Monday!)

And I'll have plenty of time on my hands to arrange that big wedding...

Wish it would rain a little (I SAID A LITTLE) here - my water butt is most dry!

Star Lilly. Unfortunately my dream job can't afford to pay me anything so it doesn't look like it'll happen. My only real option is to find a part time well paying job so that I could work the dream job for six months part time for free until I could prove that I was capable of getting enough money through the door that they'd be able to pay me to go full time. We'll see!

Hurry up 17:00 I feel the need for a trip to the supermarket to get some toffee apple cider!

Good news!

Bosses incompetency saves the day!

Rather than work out the financial implications / benefits to the "solutions" we offered him (on Tuesday) that would involve us all keeping our jobs (all be it reduced in hours and pay) in advance of the meeting he decided instead to "minute them" (we know what they sodding are - we wrote them!) and says he will then discuss them with the other bosses some time next week (they'll be busy in development meetings - nice to know their priorities are on the future rather than the RIGHT NOW and their CURRENT staff).

The ship is sinking fast but at least it means that we all get another week at full pay. Not that from what the accountant told me they'll actually have any money left to pay any of us this month.

Sounds like you'll need to experiment a little Bekkie!

Compost smells of Jeyes fluid or bitumen

If you've still go the receipt take it back to Aldi and don't run the risk.

Morning all. I am still around. Very late night last night working on the vehicles so brain wasn't in gear first thing.


Now sat at my desk waiting for the meeting which is at 13:00. I get the feeling however this meeting will be more about bull poop than about making a decision (which at least means they then have to pay me another week!)

Need a giggle? (If I'm not made redundant tomorrow) I have booked Monday off. Its my partners birthday and we had plans to go out for the day, explore the area, walk around the park, treat him to a nice pub meal for lunch...

Anyone care to come up with suggestions as to what my darling partner might have forgotten to do that makes his attendance on this wonderful day out rather tricky?

Options for improving soil nutrients

Bekkie if you get the chance do get one! I've been finding it really interesting being able to see the worms in action as they break the composting down. Edd is quite the source of knowledge when you're starting out too and has explained elsewhere on the forum how to get the worms (they're not like normal earth worms) cheaply if not free!
