Round Robin

Oh wow! We've Robins nesting in the trees somewhere behind us - they were feeding their fledgings (their second brood) on Saturday just a metre away from us completely ignoring that we were there! It was a beautiful sight although I'm half convinced they were teaching the fledgings the art of "looking cute" and "standing by the feeder until the one with long hair goes and gets the good food out".

Sounds fantastic Mrs. G! I'd love to be brave enough to ditch the desk chair and go for a job like that where you can actually make a difference to another persons life rather than make a difference to... the BBC news website reader figures?

I did apply to become a carer but the whole family forced their opinion on me that is was far beneath me so I had to dump that idea or suffer their nagging for eternity (and my gosh can they nag).

Come on Premium Bond win I know you're out there somewhere. Just a reasonable sized lump to pay off my half of the mortgage so I wouldn't have to worry so much about income and could do what I wanted to do would be nice!

Morning all!  Another week at work... We're a civilised country haven't they realised a four day working week would be much better for the economy (more jobs available) not to mention would help fit obesity (more time un the garden) thus reducing the awfully high levels of stress, diabetes, heart attacks...

Ah okay. I'll cover it in horse poo and compost to make sure - at least covered in poo will excuse why its at the bottom if the garden "maturing".

Does anyone have any experience of aging concrete pots? The friend whose gifts I talked about (I've no idea if she liked them) has given me an awful concrete pot for my birthday (it was a month ago but hey ho!) Which while completely against my taste in designs / pots and rather impractical since its too heavy for me to move even empty; I'm hoping can be faded down to look aged and sit in a corner somewhere with a shade loving plant.

Do you just slap yoghurt on and let the mould grow?

(If she dug up the roots not just took the visible weeds up).

Ryan - invest in some plant labels and label everything! No excuse that way.

I want to gag!!

Morning all. Rapidly deciding that I'm going to give up on the whole eating lark!
