How cruel is this?

Well done Fidget! 


Verdun - I'd turn of my phone,  get a blanket and sulk with a box of chocolates. 

Guilty of overmanicuring gardens at the expense of wildlife?

Verdun would you mind looking at my lawn? You do seem quite the handy man!

Panda the ice cream van around here has never stopped!


Reggie has just run up to me and belched in my face. I guess he's feeling better after last nighttroubledes.

Morning all. Puppy had his first BAD night last night. I'm not sure if it is because His Lordship isn't here as he hasn't been searching for him during the day, whether it was because he was frontlined yesterday, or what...

Suffering the lack of sleep headache now though and waiting for my mug of tea to kick in before we go for a walk. Its frosty but gloriously sunny outside: the mischief I could get up too in the garden if I weren't going to be sat on front desk at work. I might even finalise plans on how things are going to be laid out!

Just got in from our bed time walks. It's really very chilly out there!

See you in the morning. Keep safe!

Another frost KEF? But I've only just emptied the greenhouse to give it a clean. These pots are heavy!

Watching this Pillock tv programme. There are a few awful errors (I must remember it is only television) but that erks me is Verduns hair: has he never been near shampoo and a comb?!

Have fun Matty!

Dove I hope Pa has settled now.


I'm hard at work: can't you tell? Its so cold in this office I wish the wifi would make it onto the street and I'd sit on the kerb working. But I am stuck with a thought. It wont go away. COULD you put a "green roof" on a greenhouse? Too heavy? Block too much light? Why would you want to anyway? Can someone please take this thought from me!!

Runnybeak - good point. Perhaps I need to research plastering techniques instead of gardening ideas! Quietly convinced if I had him help me unload my car and him haul the plaster board inside he'd soon change his mind about leaving me to it.

Lovely and sunny here this morning: must mean it's back to work for me!

Wintersong - I've just rehomed 36 of the darling little black slimy devils in the time it took Reggie to do his garden patrol. Considering the harsh frost this morning I rather hoped a few would have succumbed to the elements. 

Reggie is proving awful company tonight: think we walked too far He's well asleep.

I'm trying to absorb everything there is to know about asparagus growing and narrowing down which grape vine I'd like to try and grow in the greenhouse... not sure how well it'll work in Yorkshire but it will be fune to give it a try!
