Grass still growing

Posted: 03/12/2014 at 07:34

We were just saying on Sunday that ours could do with a late trim - alas its too wet.

Growing mealworms for beginners.

Thanks for bringing this back to our attention Edd! It's on my to do list to get a mealworm farm going.

Morning all. Have a safe day everyone!  XX

Partner took me to Meadowhell (my truck is too high to fit under the barrier - "the shame!"). 

Just so we're clear on this; I still really really hate shopping. Even if it means getting to visit the Lego store.

Definitely looks like we'll be getting a frost tonight. I took a walk around two garden centres (to top up my vitamin D levels you understand - something very important and probably would have worked were it not so cold I was under many many inches of clothing) one of which I found the seed packets had faded in the light, and the plants had a thick layer of mould over the compost... makes me wonder how long seeds sit on shelves because these really didn't look fresh!

Second one was full of festive tat. Which at least meant I saved some money!

Now. Where's my hot water bottle...

It's a big worry......

I have found proof Santa is real - unfortunately it seems he's been using my credit card to buy all the presents.

Fairy - my hot water bottle goes to work! Big victorian building with less than suitable heating arrangements so it gets a little nippy around the kidneys. My school tours can be found doing star jumps by the fire engines on a chilly day!

I forgot to mention yesterday you'd have caught me last night working in the greenhouse by candle light: does anyone else have little tricks to extend their time in the garden?

Keep warm Mrs G! I know there are lots of coughs and colds going around the schools at the moment (I seem to be catching most of them!) Never found a cough syrup work myself but my body does seem to refuse most drugs. Best to keep warm, drink plenty, and let your body get on with it.

Morning all.  Hot water bottle did its job: although doesn't help me want to climb out of bed.

Very wet here; best got and get the snorkel to swim to work.
