Hi, folks, thanks for your concern..I'm here at the fridge that I used to call home.   

I'm not too happy either by the length of time it will take for my boiler to be replaced, but you may be assured I've made that known to the boiler engineer. It seems that he'll not bee able to get a replacement until unless I start complicating matters by involving other engineers, I'll just have to go along with it.

Anyway, things are not so bad, I'm living less than a mile away and very comfortable, apart from access to the tinternet.

TBH, compared to what those poor people south of me are having to endure, it's pretty trivial.

More smashing shots.....thank you Nikki, Lizzie & Fidget for sharing them.

While I'm here I would just say that my visits for the next week or so may be a bit spasmodic.

On Tuesday my central heating boiler burst, flooding the first floor and now, having no heat or hot water , I’ve arranged to move out for the time being......well, at least until a new boiler is fitted next Friday (7th Feb).

Where I will be staying hasn’t any WiFi connection, but I’ll be visiting home on a daily basis, so will be looking in then.

Don’t like bathrooms with a 2c temperature!

Not something I do personally, Ashleigh...I like to know what I'm getting, but worth a try maybe.

Tracy - I would suggest you sow your new seeds (2 seeds per pot) into seed pots in a couple of weeks time.When they have germinated, transfer them to your new greenhouse until they are ready to be planted outside.

 I think these were from the Staffordshire Collection.


Tracey - I mostly just grow for cut flowers these days, hence a collection such as those you ordered would suffice for a season.

Sweet peas are very deep rooted, so growing in the open ground which can be deeply dug is better than in pots.

When it comes to support, best remember they can grow to 8ft or so.....I use a double row of 8ft canes.

Second one enlarges.

Any good lawn mower forums?

LF - I would have been happy to have paid that for what seems a very good machine.

It will seem like an eternity until you can try her out.....just hope you'll be laying turf & not seed.

PS. The first Suffolk Punch I bought was just £26 new.
