HELLO FORKERS!

Verdun, how come your taraxicum officionale are so very far behind mine? They've all been and gone up here. Do you grow a late flowering one special? I'd love to be able to extend the season of them in my garden they really improve the look of the lawn.

Another day of sitting around in the office waiting for our 13:00 meeting tomorrow to discuss redundancy.

I'm in an awful catch 22 situation with the job I REALLY want and its rather messing with my brain. They need someone to be there getting them work, think I'd be perfect for it, but because work isn't coming in they've no funds to pay any one.

The only way around it is for me to work for nothing until the cash flow improves to the point that they can pay me but of course that doesn't pay the mortgage and I don't want to be in a situation where I start doing this work for free and they take advantage and then expect it to continue long term rather than give me a paid job.

Its all too much for my brain to absorb!!

Well done OL. I can never find motivation to go to the gym on my own. I have managed an hour and a half on the Wii Fit this evening at least (in danger of not fitting my dress for a friends big day next month)  I used to swim a mile every morning but no pool local opens early enough - a five am swim does amazing things to get your brain and mood going!

Dancing With Herbs - perhaps I ought do that. Its right by the path so I can knock it every time I go into the garden Although I might need to line a few down the path to balance out the damage of the TBI (traumatic brain injury otherwise known as too bloody inconvenient) and ensure I remember to come back into the house!

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I've got them written down in my little note book ready for me to start working out what will go where.

Might be having chillie tonight if you keep mentioning it! We eat chillie at least once a week - its such an easy meal to cook especially with my intolerances and we always freeze the left overs for easy meals when we can't be bothered to fire up the oven (like tonight!)

We do put an unhealthy amount of cheese to melt on top of them though

Oh Lindylou your German Shep is beautiful!

Thanks for the warning about winter protection. I need to keep this in mind I think when I plan the lay out so that I don't end up with a bare patch all winter! (I know the chives will need something interesting next to them so it wont be bare around that area).

Winters here seem very varied: last year we had it very mild in fact I think we only got two proper frosts but the year before we had a good thick layer of snow several times to ensure that we could impress the neighbours with our snowman building skills.
