Fidgetbones - Hen party

Posted: 06/10/2015 at 16:51

Yay!!!  I'm coming and I'm bringing Wonky!!!  I'll bring home made sloe gin and raspberry vodka and I'm pretty sure Wonky will bring some of that honey brandy she was talking about - shall I bring a cake as well?  Which one would you like?

Ooooo - errrrrrrrr!!!  That reminds me - I once had a colleague who started going to the same clothes shops as I did and buying and wearing identical clothes to the office as I did weird or what!!! 

The manager had to have a word - told her it was a form of stalking and harassment (not good from a social worker ).  She left shortly after in somewhat odd circumstances ............

Looks like hollyhock rust to me - most rusts are host specific so will only affect plants of that family.

Info here

Hope that helps

Gertie - the condition means that hot or cold temperatures, dehydration, strenuous exercise and stress can bring on awful pain which can last for days.  These crises can cause anaemia and affect the blood supply to the organs so can do lasting damage - it's a horrid inherited disease prevalent in people of Caribbean descent because of the concentrated gene pool due to slavery on the islands.

BL, Norwich market (the largest open-air market in England) is very good value, as are most of the ones I've visited in East Anglia.

Hello folks!   I'm back from the dentist - just a polish   I went to the market and bought a gammon hock, a pound of beef shin, a pound of skirt and some ox kidney and two big pork chops, a bulb of fennel, a bunch of spinach beet, a pound of purple sprouting (early!?) and a lovely loaf of wholemeal bread.  We're not going to starve for a while

Poor Wonky - not only is it horrid to be cold, it's actually dangerous for her Lovely hub as he has a Sickle Cell condition.   Hopefully they'll be warm as toast this evening. ((hugs))
