Talkback: Watering priorities

Posted: 18/07/2014 at 08:54

The way my family are ploughing on with it I'm more concerned I haven't been invited!!

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Seems partner is taking to having this having a house wife far too well - he managed to ignore the washing line of clothes right next to his shed all evening despite my being out volunteering til 01:00 so I'm waiting til the storm is imminent before I drag the washing in to let it be fully dry. Then I'll go and clean the kitchen where "the butter just exploded" (seriously I've no idea how butter does that!) Then I'll crack on the the to do list he's left me...

Hope you've all a lovely day planned. I'm hoping to have some pottering with the garden later, I've reached stale mate in one bed and really need to get some roots lifted so I can start planning where plants can go back in.

OL because I'm still in pots for a lot of plants I've taken to filling the barrow with water and soaking the pots in the water overnight and swapping for different pots the next day.

Get a can of instant fix and put it in your tyre - evil stuff but very effective!

Wow that's such a lovely thing to have Suzy.

If you need a giggle mother has informed me that for my wedding I shall be having fake flowers including where people will be camping as my brother doesn't want his hayfever triggering as he'll have puffy eyes in the photos!   My reply was surprisingly polite.

Morning all. Yesterdays interiew was okay I think but I am now really thinking it's time to change my career. There's no spark. Unfortunately there's no money elsewhere. 

 

Tomatoes are coming on nicely KEF - lots of fruit starting to ripen on the roma and Dave is catching up too. think they'll need watering twice today its so warm already!

Right. Have fun everyone I've the house to tidy up then a day at the museum polishing vehicles. 

 

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

I'm 29 and still have friends (both male and female) - who are now DOCTORS - phone me up for basic cooking questions as not only did they not know when we were 21 they still haven't mastered despite my hinting they just look on the BBC Good Food website. I've even been brought in to cook "impressive" meals or desserts when they were entertaining  

So is it a gender thing or do these people naturally find someone gullible enough to do it for them?!

Right - I must go and pick his clothes off the bathroom floor and tidy up the kitchen after his breakfast explosion. I really can't tell whether this has happened since I left work or whether I just didn't notice before.

Oh Woody if I be myself they'll never employ me!! I find it best to be someone not quite so awesome as myself less they are made nervous. Then I owe them with my amazingness once the first pay cheque has cleared!!

Ha ha! Sorry Panda my ramblings do get a little confusing at times. This friend hasn't given us a John Lewis gift list as most of my other friends have done so I'm trying to create something special. However the more I sew the more I realise how easy it is just to click and buy something online job done!!

Thanks for the best wishes, I'll let you know how it goes this afternoon!

Morning all! Today is interview day and of course that toe is so swollen I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get smart shoes on! Oh well - flip flops would be a conversation starter... 

I spent five hours hand sewing a friends wedding gift yesterday. I'm only half way through and am starting to see why people just buy ice cream makers now! It's only a simple design and had I used the machine I'd be done by now but that would have been far too sensible. Still; at least non of my other friends are marrying so I don't need to start a trend!
