Only in Sheffield could you be driving an American police car and be over taken by a Welsh ambulance! I think we both gave each other a funny look before we waved!

What is it you're wanting to plant? I'm sure someone here actively recommended I plant mint in this way to stop it spreading.

And in case that was a bit too heavy - KEF I've still not found my knickers.

Morning all. I'm off work today as the boss agreed Tuesday attempt at a day off... didn't work too well.

So I've done the washing,  put the autumn feed on the lawn, climbed into my uniform and waiting for the rush hour to lift before I'm back off to work. I've been watching the awful story in the news of a boy left fighting for his life after his father and brother died ina house fire and now need to go into work to ensure my boss gives his consent (I.e. I will have his hand behind his back if needed) to let me offer the school anything we can give them at no cost in case we can help the other students (especially the younger ones) understand what happened. Even if it's just taking a fire engine to school for them to climb in. 

Keep safe everyone xx

Sounds nice KEF. Do you have any left overs? His Lordship has decided he doesn't want dinner (I've been - once again - spending all evening on the new education programme and not realised the time) so plans have changed somewhat but truth be told I can't be bothered!

Gotten round to ordering my garlic bulbs (from Crocus) and somehow some deep purple tulips managed to slip into my basket. I thought that only happened at garden centres!  I'm hoping I can sneak them in for some early colour amongst the lavender bushes or perhaps in a pretty pot to sit where ever the BBQ area is going!

Keep safe everyone! Those gusts were insistent that I really wanted to drift across the road. What a battle home from work (ironically it was my day off today - but still ended up in work).

I only ever recommend something that I have tried and tested THOROUGHLY myself and these hot and cold method has seen me through many a hand / hammer interface (or indeed in't-her-face) failures.


Lawn cut. Best go and get the joint in the oven!

KEF you've not seen any underwear fly by have you? Been making the most of this dry but windy weather by getting all the washing done and I swear I'm a pair of pink frilly ones missing. That said I an going to miss the washing line come the worst of the weather. 

Trying to decide whether to cut the lawn (his job) or risk waiting til next week when presumably he intends on fixing torches to the front of the mower.


Sorry to hear about your chap Verdun, I hope the doctors can sort him out.


Mrs. G as a qualified clumsy person well experienced in trapping body bits I suggest alternating a large cold glass of cider (the cold glass in affected hand both soothes any swelling and produces an analgesic effect) with mulled wine (the heat having a dulling effect on the nerves both in your hand and mind).

To be taken as required.
