HELLO FORKERS!

Evening!

Scarborough was wet and .... really really wet. I'm convinced the rain was wetter than the sea. Still at least its done. I'm just sorting out my time sheet: I'm contracted for 30 hours a week (so 120 a month on average). Its the 6th and I'm already up to 60 hours. No wonder I'm tired! Needed an emergency pit stop on my way home and found a garden centre (much cleaner loos than service stations is my opinion): alas someone else had already had all the sticky labels but I did find a nice pot to replace the one that smashed in high winds a few weeks back. Only just had space in the car!

Poor Reggie is on a nil by mouth for 24 hours as his stomach has been bad: its all well and good the vet telling me this but I wish she'd explained it better to him! A little snout is insistent that its dinner time.

Matty: great news on the flight! I hope you have a great time.

Did I see Fairy?!

Tomato seedlings

I'm not sure if they will. Are there any trails from slugs or snails that might be hiding in your greenhouse? At least you still have time to get some more seeds planted for a later harvest.

Beaus - this suddenly explain why you're all 29! Too busy and you keep postponing the birthdays! I'm thinking October might be a good bet for me...

Mornings meeting has been cancelled so I am taking the chance to work at home getting some paperwork done since at home I have this nice large warm office and comfortable chair - at work I have to perch where ever I can find a quiet corner. Just downloading a few documents and thought I'd nip in here: joyous multi tasking!

So bums or boobs? I think I'm a bum person. But then I see a particularly nice pair of boobs and suddenly I'm not so sure.

 

This thread has been reported to the moderators for potential trolling. Hopefully they will deal with it soon enough and ideally delete it.

Morning all. Not much sleep due to wind so its lots of tea then off to Scarborough to collect a donation for the museum. Garden is romping on without me and I'm getting the feeling that my birthday present (those chickens he said I could have last birthday) are retreating back into a distant pipe dream! Ix it possible to delay my birthday a month or so? I'm too busy to deal with the "oh you have to celebrate" brigade!

 A daft photo for you from the weekend. That was after day two of about 8 hours in the smoke house a day which is a large inflatable tent filled with non toxic smoke so you are completely blind and ridiculously hot (think of all that glorious sunshine heating a large black greenhouse). Unsurprisingly I'm the only one in the team who didn't get a sun tan!

*yawns* Morning all. Very busy weekend at an event working. I am now completely shattered and so grateful for my comfortable bed. No chance of a day off another week yet so keep the tea flowing!

At least the garden got a good watering: shame the inside of my tent did too.

Gardening after stroke

Morning Horlicks. There are several of us on here with varying different issues: for instance I have weakness down my left side, a badly damaged spine, and a memory issue which makes things rather more complicated (does result in nice surprisees when bulbs appear indifferent pots though!)

All I can suggest is look at what you want from your garden: if it is easier to have pots so you don't need to bend over or stretch or can arrange from the safety of a chair and table and have someone else put in the final location,  or even raised beds to save you struggling to get up and down, than play with ideas. Visit other gardens and imagine yourself working there and see if anything sparks as a good idea.

Morning all. Manic day today involving transporting vehicles, Jack the Ripper presentations, and generally getting ready for spending the weekend in a smoke filled inflatable house. I've been promised they'll let me know if its sunny outside!
