HELLO FORKERS!

Evening all! His lordship decided that what with it being the hottest day he'd decree we were having curry for tea. Am I not positively glowing at it is? 

What have I missed?

Oh Annie if you ever get married again I can loan you a few mothers / a grandmother who'll sort it all out for you!! I am used to project managing so as far as I'm concerned a wedding should be a doddle in comparison to running a project with shouting engineers and where the time frame was so strict the RAF gave us five minutes buffering time before sending a harrier over the lift site for good measure! A doddle that is so long as we all run to MY INSTRUCTIONS!

We've not even decided when (where!!) We're getting married much let table decorations is completely against the grain with my family who are most worried that I haven't rushed off to get piles of wedding magazines (don't they realise that's less money for me to spend on plants?) and choosen my wedding dress (not really appropriate since we don't know if it'll be summer or winter and seriously guys I've a pond that needs finishing!) Or started to make proto-type cake decorations (really? I've got tomato plants doing their best to dry out on me and you want me to worry about cake?!)

Annie - I brought my own engagement ring after getting fed up of waiting. You need to tell these chaps where they stand sometimes!!

 

I keep seeing people mentioning thunder storms and such like - can you send a little up here. We've had three minutes of rain today and that's not enough to make a dent on my water butt!

Morning all. Seems partner is taking to having this having a house wife far too well - he managed to ignore the washing line of clothes right next to his shed all evening despite my being out volunteering til 01:00 so I'm waiting til the storm is imminent before I drag the washing in to let it be fully dry. Then I'll go and clean the kitchen where "the butter just exploded" (seriously I've no idea how butter does that!) Then I'll crack on the the to do list he's left me...

Hope you've all a lovely day planned. I'm hoping to have some pottering with the garden later, I've reached stale mate in one bed and really need to get some roots lifted so I can start planning where plants can go back in.

OL because I'm still in pots for a lot of plants I've taken to filling the barrow with water and soaking the pots in the water overnight and swapping for different pots the next day.

Get a can of instant fix and put it in your tyre - evil stuff but very effective!

Wow that's such a lovely thing to have Suzy.

If you need a giggle mother has informed me that for my wedding I shall be having fake flowers including where people will be camping as my brother doesn't want his hayfever triggering as he'll have puffy eyes in the photos!   My reply was surprisingly polite.

Morning all. Yesterdays interiew was okay I think but I am now really thinking it's time to change my career. There's no spark. Unfortunately there's no money elsewhere. 

 

Tomatoes are coming on nicely KEF - lots of fruit starting to ripen on the roma and Dave is catching up too. think they'll need watering twice today its so warm already!

Right. Have fun everyone I've the house to tidy up then a day at the museum polishing vehicles. 

 

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

I'm 29 and still have friends (both male and female) - who are now DOCTORS - phone me up for basic cooking questions as not only did they not know when we were 21 they still haven't mastered despite my hinting they just look on the BBC Good Food website. I've even been brought in to cook "impressive" meals or desserts when they were entertaining  

So is it a gender thing or do these people naturally find someone gullible enough to do it for them?!

Right - I must go and pick his clothes off the bathroom floor and tidy up the kitchen after his breakfast explosion. I really can't tell whether this has happened since I left work or whether I just didn't notice before.
