 Oh that would be hilarious! My all dressed up in my smartest talking all posh like to the proper high ranking officers that will be gracing the day and you lot pulling up in your torn jeans and muddy shoes sneaking sandwiches off the buffet and drinking pop in the exhibits. 


Actually that sounds just what I need! 


Currently emailing every head teacher in South Yorkshire. Individually. With personalised I'm so sorry to be disturbing your holidays.


Someone needs to send a letter round: people are having too many babies! The amount of primary schools around here is ridiculous.

You lucky thing Dove! My boss has just announced that I am to find 60 students and 30 old persons for an opening event in the museum.... taking place less than 13 days after school restarts.


He does make me laugh.

Help - unexpected greenhouse tomato management

Posted: 01/08/2016 at 12:19

Tomatoes are tricky customers: they seem to spend ages doing nothing then one day you'll go and in and all you can see is red. 


Don't worry about them not ripening soon enough: the longer they stay green the more time your neighbour will have to enjoy them when she gets out of hospital!

Greenhouse

I often see greenhouses advertised on my local selling page on Facebook. If you've a few fit and willing volunteers you can often get yourself a really good deal. Just recently there were some really good quality ones going free to whoever could dismantle!

Thanks Clari. 


Ironing, you say.....what is that?  


See original post

 ssshhhhh don't draw attention to it! I have to iron work shirts (can't have him looking a scruffy bugger!) But I also iron our bedsheets... it makes them feel extra luxurious! (Well as luxurious as you can get from Ikea bedsheets!)

Oh Dew Drops I am sorry to hear that.


I'm on washing load number four; what domestic goddesses we are. Due to the lounge being out of action I'm ironing in the office; it's proving quite entertaining watching the neighbours children taking their new kittens for a walk!


Anyone else celebrating Yorkshire Day tomorrow?

Oh Busy! The poor dog. Isn't it awful when they start to struggle: I hope he isn't too upset by having a bath. Reggie always thinks its the WORST THING EVER and how could we possibly betray him (then he jumps in the pond).


ENjoy the party!
