Sooooo cold out! Bird feeders stocked & I bought the propagator in from the shed to clean - being very good & not sowing yet though (Chillies will be first out). KEF I put some chilli willies in an envelope for you but I really can't remember if it made it to the post office! I'll try and have a dig around and see if I can find them!

Good news! I have this Friday off.

Bad news! trying so hard while working the past two weekends to ensure my partners supply of clothing was uninterrupted I seem to have failed to keep my own washing topped up... todays choice of underwear seems rather "over the top" for my work combat trousers and steel capped boots! 

Seems such a waste that no one will notice much less appreciate them (partner himself wont be home till I'm long asleep) so I thought I'd at least let you all have a giggle! Lift and separate ladies!

It's my birthday

Edd -sorry I normally post while half asleep I was supporting your Glucosamine Sulphate advice to help Hosta. Okay so using the dog isn't the best of examples but if giving the dog a chew treat laiden with Glucosamine Sulphate seems to enable said 13 year old arthritic dog to leap on a sofa it must be doing something good to the joints. Honestly we can tell in the way she walks whether she's not had the chews for a few days.

I did try Glucosamine Sulphate myself for my own injury related arthritis but am now trying to find a different brand to compare effects. Unfortunately I might be just getting placebo effects so can't say for sure how good the product is. The dog however can't read medical journals to learn about these placebo effects so is a much more reliable patient to ask.

Fidget please don't drive with a damaged spring. I just deleted the what "could" happen horror list that all mechanics reel off but suffice to say your suspension needs a spring void of sharp edges for a reason: especially with the bad weather predicted.

DD I've loads of spare dry days I can send you across if you'd like?

Evening all!! Very cold here and despite the heating being on I'm sat in my gloves and thermals. I think my internal heating is broken.
I tried to be really organised this morning and put the washing machine on a timer so it would be ready for my return. Shame my darling oh turned the plug socket off on his way out.
The flashy yellows on the parkway (main escape route out of Sheffield for t'hills) were warning snow is expected in 24 hours. Hoping it's going yo be a good display to cover the mess in the garden until I can get out there and tidy up!

I know this sounds silly but we can tell when the elderly german shepherd has not had their glucosamine chew: she can't jump on the sofa! Since I don't think she knows about the placebo effect it's worth considering.

Morning all. Pdoc if you catch up with your garden can you nip in and look at mine? I'm considering a few days off to catch up and rest... but you can guarantee with my luck it'll snow!
