Things I don't get

Posted: 28/08/2016 at 06:59

Made their minds up about 4x4 drivers? What are the common thoughts on 4x4 drivers?

I drive a 4x4 everytime it's snowed I've pulled buses up hills, cars out of ditches, and even took a group of very cold people stood at a bus stop into town because there was no way that bus was getting to their little village bless their optimistic ideas. I also regularly (even though as a lass you need to be careful) stop if I see a classic car broken down and one time a cyclist who'd broken his chain and dropped him off at a pub with phone signal so his friend could come and get him.

I use it to recover the fire engines and other exhibits I work with. You just can't do that with a Peugeot 206!

Oh; and because this is a gardening forum; I can get 2 ton of well rotted horse muck in the back. Always useful. ;)

*SQUEALS* Oh congratulations Wonky that sounds brilliant!!

Well done you. I'm properly chuffed.

Partner has gone off for a boys day out (he did at least make me tea in bed) and I'm just waiting for the hound to settle before I think about breakfast. I do wish my allergies weren't so food related because a weatherspoon breakfast would be ideal right now. No washing up and if you time it right; no fussing for lunch either.

I have some work news too: September starts my working Monday - Friday and only working the occasional weekend. See that word OCCASIONAL. My poor partner will be sick of the sight of me!

Oh Wonky what have you been up too??? I have so many ideas rushing through my head. 

Well today I was at an event in Doncaster. Nearly didn't make it there when a police car pulled out in front of me. Oops! They were at the time hunting a very dangerous person so I did forgive them. But as I was in a police riot van being tailed closely by a fire engine I did pray a little when we all somehow missed each other. Imagine the paperwork.

I have now dried out (almost swam back it was so bad), donned my onsie, and checked my emails to find that I have a surprise Monday off! What to do??

Frogs always look bored and hungry.

what can i sow now

MOST important thing to do right now is decide what you WANT to grow! Please don't throw things in the ground because it's the right time to do it when come harvest you find your family won't actually eat any of the produce.

Plan your allotment out; work out what you want to eat, how much space it will take, what soil quality it needs, relax.

Morning all. Bad night; when his lordship wasn't snoring so loud it killed any chance of sleep he was getting up and letting the dog into the bedroom because he wanted cuddles. Unfortunately puppy wanted cuddles with me.

I'm knackered! Good job I'm visiting family tonight so can kip on their sofa / floor.

About to go and make a huge cup of tea. Anyone else want one?
