Went to Aldi for some vegetables...

... came home with a weed wand.

Has anyone had any success with burning the weeds away? It looks potentially useful on the areas I can't dig out.

Just waiting for it to stop snowing so I can try it.

Morning all. I've been reading about this cold blast we're due to be hit with... I'll not bother turning the heating off just yet!

Help with ideas

I adore option b. The path through the middle is practical and the shape makes a nice bold statement which can always be softened with planting should you find it too harsh.

Morning all. Should I be leaving left out if the asshats are not pm'ing me? Obviously they realise just how much damage I can cause with my superior spelling mistakes and firefighter boots to trample over freshly seeded lawns. Chicky; people are odd. Just remember when you receive one of this messages - I am here with 400 gallon of freezing cold water ready to lay siege to their green houses!!

Gloriously sunny but COLD here. I had a brilliant time yesterday delivering a talk to a town womans guild (even if we did have a complete technical failure) so shall be spending today polishing a few bits up ready to use again... if anyone else will have me that is!!

Anyone for another mug of tea? I've discovered A2 milk; lacks a certain protein and is doing wonders for my stomach problems. TEA FOR EVERYONE!!

So...............

For the love of chocolate get the farmers in to do it. They've the equipment, the strength, and it'll not damage you which is the most important bit!!

 

I've come to work on my day off to give a presentation. A kind archivist (and person who knows all the information I need to do said presentation and in fact would be 1000 times better at it than me) offered to come in to help make my presentation look generally awesome as he was too busy to assist on Friday.

He's not here.

My presentation looks so very bare and is in not many hours time.

You lot are currently proving a welcome distraction from otherwise crawling into a small ball and hiding.

So...............

I don't know what you're complaining about. I (as a 27 year old female) spent six months working for a company where they all insisted on calling me MARK because that was the name of the engineer before me and it was "simpler" that way.

Agh. Measured up the garden for the new garage just to check. Plans for the vegetable garden change again! My poor hens I haven't even got them yet but already their home has moved six times. Now to rework where the green houses will go to avoid the view from the kitchen being an awful sensation of closed in.
