Good luck Beaus Mum!

Another working weekend followed by working tomorrow on my day off. I'm trying to dream up some ideas for a low pollen houseplant that will cope with freezing cold and the heat - I want to soften the classroom up a little for younger visitors. I'm also thinking of a fish tank but that may have to wait a while. Gardening gets everywhere!

Dove - I shall nip out once I've got some socks on and inform them that they're to form an orderly queue for my clipboard; that ought convince them to scuttle off! 

As for muddy floors; my partner has size 13 feet with a tendency to fall off the nice wide path into my flower beds or trample the grass: I am well used to mud throughout the house & at least the dog is easier to wash!

Plant sales for school fundraising

The whole home made food stuff "rules" is silly. I have issues with food allergies and don't even trust my own mother not to try and poison me so guess what... I just don't buy the homemade food regardless of what label they might put with it. Do I think that they should stop homemade foods being sold at events?! Good lord no! 

Regarding your plant sales when is it being hosted? Are you allowed to get the children to make crafts? I.e. plant labels, little signposts telling slugs to go away, decorated pots...

 

Good luck!

Morning all. Another full weekend working and with parties in both days its guaranteed to be busy! I'm going to be calling the dog rescue place tonight to see if we've any more information: they've told us we've been approved but its gone quiet when it actually comes to getting information on certain doggies! (We picked four we especially liked- two went to new homes yesterday).

Wont be doing the garden birdwatch this year which means my garden will be FULL of the wee things! Every year I have gone it the garden goes scarily quiet like they know something is happening 

anyone started growing their chili peppers yet?

Funny I stroll by as we're discussibg freezers. I've just had to clear mine out and repack it as I went a little overboard at the reduced section in Tesco as they had several (16 chocolate brownies, 8 pains au chocolat, 2 loafs of bread) gluten free treats I'll only ever buy when reduced as they're just too expensive otherwise.
It just fits... although we've now a joint of pork defrosting for an evening meal and I have no idea where anything is anymore!
