Afternoon all. Glad to hear Marion is okay.

The lawn has been cut (much needed) but I've had to come inside as the neighbour has sparked up a bonfire (still had my washing out; agh!!) and the oder of burnt rather ruins the chances to absorb some vitamin D.

Did someone mention cake?

Morning all!
Woke up to glorious sunshine and chirping birds. what a change from yesterday! Bright yellow daffodils always look better with the sum on them.

I'm trying very hard to stick to my not planting this year so we can focus on the house renovations. I even drove past the garden centre twice yesterday and managed to battle the steering wheel in a straight line. It's AWFUL!! All those empty pots, that naked greenhouse, the untouched compost ... *twitches*

Afternoon all. It's been a grey funny day; it feels as though the moment you turn your back it'll rain. Such a shame that I wasn't in yesterday to make the most of the glorious sunshine I am fed up of drying clothes on the radiators all the while!

Bulbs not flowered

When did you plant them? Have they been fed and their soil topped up? Could they be "blind" (Starved) ?

Thought for Lyn

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!

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