HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/12/2014 at 17:32

What a thought! The days getting lighter so soon.

Been to the doctor but despite my low O2 levels we can't get an x-ray til the morning. So its an evening of keeping warm and trying not to buy any doggy treats! I've seen some beautiful beds out there but its a bit premature as we've only had the telephone interview the next step is them checking our references and then a home check. They say the adoption process normally takes around a month. You will all be sick of me come the end of it!

Hoping the weather will be gentle with us on Sunday - what more of a kick up the rump do I need to get the garden put to sleep than a potential inspection! (Seriously I ironed my socks less the future inlaws check the wardrobe when they first visited! )

Growing Shop bought Ginger

Hi! Like you I stuck some ginger in the ground earlier this year - its a lovely little plant and grew about half an inch this season (South Yorkshire - in greenhouse) you can imagine how long you'd need before you could use it regularly and as people have said the conditions are hard to achieve.

To me its a plant for amusement rather than one that will keep my kitchen full,

Wrong coal?

Now I'm not in the best position to say as my experience with coal is more to do with 14 ton steam engines than domestic fires but I'm sure when we tried anthracite it needed a strong updraft (air flow from underneath). Is there anything you can do on your fire to help the air flow?

You might need to dig down and try mining buckets of the good stuff at night (when its all shut up) unfortunately.

Is it worth phoning your supplier to see if they have any advice / complaints from others?

If it's still bagged up phone your new supplier and ask them to come and get it!

Funny you should mention rescue dogs Damsel; we've just filled in the adoption form to adopt a German Shepherd. Hopefully they'll get in contact soon to arrange a home check and will consider us suitable!

And when positivity doesn't work block them. If they don't get the attention they crave they'll get the hint and slink away to torture some other poor souls.

Can you send me a shot of whatever you're drinking Dove? I really need to clean the house but I could happily nap the day away.

Must get our family secret Santa cracker finished. They specified bad joke!
