Evening folks, hope you've all had a good day. 

KEF, did you build the coldframe all by yourself  Not sure I like the size of those  ladders 

Clari, the scary thing wasn't there last time I went, can't remember what you called it. Sounds like fun, memory cells not functioning, I'll have to look back on posts, think you said they aren't putting it on anymore, shame 

OL , hope LBM does well in his exam tomorrow, think it might be the same as my s.son's, science.


Mrs G. You mean the scare maze? Its a special event til the 16th. You can read more here...


Headache from yesterday finally lifting. Blissful relief!

Have you a gentleman in your life who wouldn't mind peeing into the compost bin (or into a jug at least) to help break things down?

That's alright then.....they must like you 

Ha ha! More they realise I don't stand for any messing around and would think nothing to passing them a sweeping brush if they're going to get in the way moving things!

They're hoping the exhibit tonight so we'll see what stunt the ghosts pull this time.

Growing chilies

Foodie do you know what types of chillies you're growing? (i.e. Firecracker ...)

OL - there's normally one or two other people in the museum somewhere but because the vehicles are spread out across the ground floor its not unusual for me to be on my own doing a few little maintenance jobs or at least scuttling too and from the workshop for more tools on my own. It really doesn't bother me I've never felt unsafe or at least uncomfortable there.

Bubbles on surface of pond?

I've just found out that the site where I work has great crested newts (they've just had a survey pending a new workshop). I keep wondering if the bosses will think me mad if I ask if I can return in the evening to see if I can spot one or two!!
