Is it just me?

MMM warm engine oil. Now that brings back memories!

Is it just me?

I live with someone who would rather starve than cut up raw chicken. He is physically sick if he has to touch it and goes into complete melt down.

I on the other hand will get my hands in / on anything, raw chicken, mud, dough, up a cows ho-ha, there is very little these hands wont touch if needed.

Show me a wobbly tooth however and I go a distinct green colour - I have actually considered not having children purely on the basis that I don't think I could cope with their baby teeth coming out!

Sweetpea where did you get those storage boxes? They're BEAUTIFUL!! Much envy from the cardboard box brigade over here!


I'm back on a computer. This time at home tidying up my CV. Partner being "helpful" suggested I had a rum and coke... not sure that and CV would have been a good idea


"To Whom It May Concern:

I am truly awesome and would make a terrific asset to your team.

P.S. I can hear a kettle boiling from a mile off and am well versed in the making of an engineers brew knowing the maximum timings for the optimal hobnob dunking to be 45 seconds with milk chocolate ones 57.3 seconds.


Shall I start on Monday?"


Although at least I'd actually be writing my CV not looking for gardening ideas on here!!

Perhaps a neighbour might like them.

Lesley, I don't really know my neighbours well (although certainly I can assure you that one is not at all green fingered). Perhaps I could put them on the front drive with a "free to good home" sign. There's still a bush out there from when I went on the local "sales forum" offering a few plants to anyone who wanted to collect them - its been months but I just haven't gotten round to moving it!

Oh they're definite slug masters that's for sure! Maybe I should sacrifice them and put them at the edge of the garden as traps to stop the slugs venturing towards my tomatoes.

Not quite companion planting...

Non of them are exactly little either else I'd be trying to put them in the post to the flood victims fund but I think between them they'd be a car load on their own!

Anyone in the South Yorkshire (S25) area want these plants? No idea what they are (aside from slug magnets) and they don't fit into our plants.

 (Not sure how we'll manage it but I want to rescue the pot from this one)

 (Huge monster of a big green thing!!)

 (A close up of the second one - I think! - In case it helps anyone identify it.)

Morning all! 

Cut the wildlife area (aka overgrown) where the chickens are going - couldn't move for frogs! Little devils all over the place trying to trip me up! Wish they'd spread into the garden and make a dent on the slugs.
