Oh Punk that sounds uncomfortable. I hope it's fast and effective.

Well I'm dressed and downstairs - can't promise much else!

Gardening newbie, any ideas for garden design?

Advised admin on above poster due to lack of any other posts (but weird to come on the forum and straight up start posting links).

 Bit different from last year's decorations of bare brick and no electricity / heating / floor!

Planting garlic

Bencurto; you want fertile (well fed with compost / manure) and well draining. This means the water doesn't sit in the soil for days on end as garlic seem to  rot easily. I found building a trench by my garlic to aid drainage helps if the soil is very wet.

Morning all.

Slept badly, changed the 4 tog duvet for a 10.5 tog one. Thought it was because I was too hot, but now Dove has mentioned the moon it must be that. I always sleep badly in France when there is a full moon.

See original post

 Hmm.. now you've got me thinking. I had a very unsettled night; feeling absolutely shattered now and think today will be a right off.

I assumed it was because I had dared to eat after 21:00.

The hound and I have waved his lordship off, sorted the laundry, and climbed back in to bed with a strong mug of tea.

Evening all!

I've been at a Christmas fayre for work - didn't sell a single card / calendar / raffle ticket unfortunately so our fundraising pot is now £10 down rather than up. But at least our name is getting out there.

For some reason a stall holder next to me (lady in her 70s and borderline ecentric) wanted to tell me all about 1960s birth control and why young woman now shouldn't have children. 

You'll be pleased to know I smiled and nodded and resisted the temptation to tell her I was a lesbian / mother at 15 / a firmer believer that birth control is a sin.

I can be well behaved sometimes!

Curled up on the sofa with my loving yet very needy dog trying to decide what to make for supper.

experience with grow box?

Morning all!

There's some very disappointed school children this morning! The snow hasn't settled here. Just bitterly cold!

You'll all be pleased to know that as I'm on leave I only glance my emails for emergencies (which I shouldn't need to do) and so haven't seen the bosses one.

Which is such a shame.

Right; time for a shower and breakfast.
