Thought for Lyn

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 23:35

Oh Lyn I am in one way so very sorry to hear this news. Yet in another way relieved, relieved that neither of you are suffering any more. You were an amazing daughter to both your mother and father: doing something that as much as we hate to admit, not many of us could manage. Especially with so little help.

Please look after yourself more now than ever. x

Evening all. Its Saturday night, gone 23:30 if the wonky clock is to be believed.

I've been at work since 09:30 on Friday morning. My darling scouts didn't go to sleep til midnight last night and the ghost hunters tonight wont be leaving until 02:00. We've a big event tomorrow at T' Moor (Sheffield) with lots of emergency service vehicles and sirens to keep me awake.

Roll on Monday! As much as I enjoy this job I am enjoying the thought of my own bed, and a day spent doing very little.


Keep safe all!

I hope Lyn your father settled last night and you got some decent rest.

I'm off to work in a bit and won't be returning until Sunday evening! Scouts sleeping Friday night, then hosting a team of paranormal investigators on Saturday night before heading into Sheffield for a big 999 day. See you Monday!

Glad it's looking good Hosta.

Lyn I have so many bits crossed for you tonight.

Dove I feel like you. Just waiting for his lordship to cook the dinner I prepared earlier.

Glorious sunshine while I was at work; come home and the sun goes in! I call that most unfair!

I'm currently experiencing a lull in work. I have scrubbed the museum toilets, vacuum'd the top two floors, and keep hitting refresh on my emails to no joy.

Its an unnerving sensation!

Morning all.

Strawberry Growing

Posted: 12/04/2016 at 20:56
I've had great success with strawberry plants in hanging baskets. I put a plastic coke bottle into the soil to keep it watered. No slugs to worry about even the birds left them alone as I think the swinging in the breeze put them off. (And of course I didn't have to worry about the dog peeing on them!)

Anyone need a giggle? I'm currently slow roasting the dog lambs heart to add to his dog casserole for tonight's supper.

I on the other hand have beans on toast to eat.

Spoilt much?
