Talkback: Watering priorities

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 08:36

I think I'd rather my twice daily jaunts around the garden with my special needs wheelbarrow full of watering cans.

HELLO FORKERS!

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.

Oh Woody if I be myself they'll never employ me!! I find it best to be someone not quite so awesome as myself less they are made nervous. Then I owe them with my amazingness once the first pay cheque has cleared!!

Ha ha! Sorry Panda my ramblings do get a little confusing at times. This friend hasn't given us a John Lewis gift list as most of my other friends have done so I'm trying to create something special. However the more I sew the more I realise how easy it is just to click and buy something online job done!!

Thanks for the best wishes, I'll let you know how it goes this afternoon!

Morning all! Today is interview day and of course that toe is so swollen I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get smart shoes on! Oh well - flip flops would be a conversation starter... 

I spent five hours hand sewing a friends wedding gift yesterday. I'm only half way through and am starting to see why people just buy ice cream makers now! It's only a simple design and had I used the machine I'd be done by now but that would have been far too sensible. Still; at least non of my other friends are marrying so I don't need to start a trend!

You need to stop driving into women Verd. It's just not polite to rear end a lady!

Today we learn: don't sneeze while holding a very hot iron in  your weak arm.

Your nail will break.

Your skin will smell of bacon.

It will hurt.

Growing basil and other herbs

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 10:59

I pot up basil we've brought at the supermarket. They last for a couple of years although they're not as good towards the end. I just freeze the leafs when it gets too big so I've a constant supply. Much easier than growing basil from seeds and so lovely to see green plants in the winter.

Remember the first day of the school holidays?  You could hear all the other kids out playing but you had been presented with a "to do list" by your mother tbat I swear verged on child slavery. There would be no fun until the wardrobes had been emptied and all clothes tidied up, cupboards tipped out onto the floor for sorting even though you never go in there, skirting boards dusted despite grandparents not coming so you knew you'd have to do them again next week... and all the while your friends have been given a paddling pool to mark the summer holidays and they're going to the zoo tomorrow...

It feels a lot like that today!
