This is her after potting. Nice wide (not terribly deep) pot to give those roots chance to spread out?

Morning all. Ironing done, tea drunk, curtains kept closed so we don't need to see what damage has been caused until its light enough to do something about it.

KEF I've got the hot water bottle ready warming things up for us. His Lordship doesn't think he'll be home for at least another hour (i.e. gone 21:00). 

Dark (cold and windy) nights make me want to hibernate at the best of times (raynaulds and arthritis don't help), trouble is hot summer days and I over heat (can't regulate my temperature due to spinal issues) so I think I really ought invest in a hot tub for the winter months and transform it into a paddling pool come summer!

Actually that might not be such a silly idea...

You keep safe there Verd!! Wet and windy here: but I guess it was risky eating that pate.

Partner is working very late tonight. Its 19:09 and there's no sign of his return. I'm afraid dinner is... fish fingers! I am never motivated to just cook for myself. 

At what time is it acceptable to climb into bed? There's nothing on the television and I'm refusing to do the cleaning I swear this house has dust pockets it releases when your back is turned. (I know: I am so rock and roll).

What cheese did you have for supper Dove?!


Heavy frost outside: I'm packing extra hats and gloves for my school tour today!

10 1/2 hour working day... not good since I am only meant to be on a 30 hour contract and am doing 20 hours over time this weekend 

I'm hoping by the laws of karma I will return to the garden (by candle light) and find my garlic sprouting! The lack of growth is starting to get a little frustrating! Roll on spring when the ground might not be too wet to work on and I'll be able to dig more vege beds!

Patience may be a virtue KEF but there is something special about seeing little seedlings appearing!
